Chicken salt is sooo good... I was surprised to hear you Americas don't have it.


I was surprised that the Root Beer was pretty much North America only. I've also been told that grape jelly, ubiquitous here, is not common in England.


That is starting to change, though. Along with sodas that were not considered palatable in Mexico, for example, like Dr. Pepper.


I can understand that - I tried Dr Pepper once... Like pumpkin pie, I was left wondering how anyone could consume it willingly.

Isn't Root Beer what we call Ginger Beer? (Made from ginger root.)


Root beer is most definitely not Ginger based. Either Sarsaparilla and/or Sassafras is the main herbal flavour in it as Sir Henry points out (In the US American Sasafrass was used at first, but because it's a very strong medicine, European Sarsaparilla came to substitute it later in the 19th century) . If Dr. Pepper tastes like prune soda, then to me root beer has a licorice - like flavour, and it's - to me - considerably stronger than Dr. Pepper. They're very different yet similar flavours - if that makes any sense, but both ellicit the same kind of "Why are you drinking this?" reaction from first timers, and I'd say they're both very addictive in the long run. I think it's the strength and strangeness of the taste that pulls you back into it. Plus some interesting stuff you can do with ice cream...

How to Make a Root Beer Float from Scratch | Sassafras Maple Brew: HTME: Remix

PS. I don't suggest making *everything* from scratch like that dude in the video, although I loved the process. In the event civilisation collapses, I know I can survive on root beer floats  Tongue. You can just go to the supermarket and buy the ice-cream and root beer  Grin



Well, as much as I'd like to try your American soda-pop, I'm afraid I just can't... My son-in-law is a brewer and I really wouldn't want to offend him by drinking some other brewed substance.  Grin

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!  Grin

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

A teensy bit of necroposting...

We don't have Vegemite either.  But we do have peanut butter. When I traveled in Scotland for a month via bicycle (back in the mid 80s) I got some pretty entertaining reactions when I pulled out my jar of PB.  (I was told to "bring my own"  because the real stuff was not  available outside the US; that may have changed in the last 30 years.)
  
.... Like pumpkin pie, I was left wondering how anyone could consume it [Dr Pepper] willingly....

I'll pretend you didn't say that, about pumpkin pie, that is.

I don't think however good the batter may be, that you could overcome the taste of Spam. And how does the crumb, once cooked, stick to it anyway? It's far too greasy! It's one step away from trying to batter lard!

Wasn't there an episode of The Simpsons where the ad on TV took 'rich creamery butter, wrapped it in bacon and deep fried it'? I guess they do the Spam fingers the same way...  Grin

You need to read the early posts on this thread. Deep fried bacon is a thing here in Texas and in the East they have deep fried butter and deep fried coke! It's so ridiculous!
