Help... looking for Big Shot root beer from New Orleans!

Big Bad Voodoo Lou | Apr 9, 2004 10:18 PM

Hello all,

This is my first post here, and I just discovered this message board. I'm a Florida boy, but I've traveled to New Orleans a few times and I love it there. My favorite things in the world are food and music, and nobody does it better than N'awlins. I always have a great time and the best meals of my life there. Beignets, muffaletta from the Central Grocery Store, jambalaya, fried oyster po'boys, red beans and rice, electric green Hand Grenades from Tropical Isle in the Quarter... nothing like it in the world!

However, I have been longing for a Louisiana-native root beer by a brand called Big Shot. I haven't had it in years, and I remember it being the tastiest, creamiest root beer ever. I'd love to order some bottles or somehow find a "hook-up" to get some, but I can't find any information about Big Shot on the Internet. Does anyone know a website, a supplier, anything? I consider myself a root beer aficionado, and even if I couldn't order some, I'd like to learn more about it. I'd be grateful for any information at all! Thank you, and it's good to know a board like this exists!
