      I'm curious what people use this stuff for. I had some root beer glazed chicken once that used it, which was not something I'd recreate. Do people use it in cooking or is it just for making beverages?

        Zatarain's Root Beer Extract: $2.00 + Shipping: $7.77 = Total: $9.77 is a little expensive. That's why I'm looking locally.

            Nope, we needed a little bit of extract for a a Medifast Root Beer Float. We have been on a diet. Down 50# since the beginning of the year.
            Hope to see you on our next visit.

                  Any diet controlled program will result in weight loss. The diet is portion control with adherence to a specific diet plan. We are very satisfied with the program we used.
                  Here's the recipe:

                  Root Beer Float
                  Serves: 1


                  • 1 packet Medifast® Vanilla Supplement

                  • 6-8 ounces cold water

                  • 3 ounces diet root beer

                  • 2-3 ice cubes

                  • ¼ - ½ teaspoon root beer extract

                  1. Place ice cubes, water and diet soda in a blender.
                  2. Add the extract and Medifast supplement to blender,.
                  3. Mix for 10-15 seconds or until most of the ice cubes are crushed.
