      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:
