Hopefully 'all will be able to help me out here.
My darling S/O laments the lack of three foodstuffs (he's not too much of a 'Hound, but he's coming 'round).
1. Brantford, ONT. fries - I agree with him, they're the best I've ever had. We're reconciled that we just need to travel to Brantford more often.
2. Schneider's Oktoberfest Sausage (also from ONT.) - I'm working with his mother to get some shipped south next fall, as a surprise.
AND (the one I'm looking for help with):
3. He swears that Snapple used to make a "clear root beer," which was "the best," I don't recall Snapple making root beer, but I'm willing to conceed that my memory isn't always my strength - I have asked if he's remembering Clearly Canadian's root beer (which was also clear), but he says that it was Snapple.
Anyway, whatever it was, it's apparently no longer available. I asked him what made the root beer that he's craving so special - he says that it wasn't too sweet or syrupy, it had a full, rich flavor, and was well-carbonated (he complains that lots of root beer goes flat too fast).
His birthday is approaching soon and I was thinking that maybe for one of his gifts I'd try to find a couple different brands of root beer that might approach what it is that he's desiring and put together a mixed six-pack or two. (Oh, but if I have to buy full six-packs, that's okay, too.)
Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
