It's the little things...

I found A&W Root Beer in the supermarket last week. It was three times more expensive than Pepsi and Coke but I got it anyway. Just in time for summer. I'm going to make some really yummy root beer floats. It reminds me of home and my childhood. Now if they could just make sure to keep bringing it to Libya. And while they're at it they could start stocking Dr. Pepper and Mr. Pibb too. 


  1. WHERE did you find root beer? Was it real A&W?? A root beer float sounds soooo good right now. if only there was blue bell ice cream!!

  2. My kids were talking about A&W rootbeer the other day. Please tell us in which supermarket did you buy it? That would really be a great treat for them! Thanks!

  3. I'm enjoying your blog! Congratulations on being named Expat Blog of the Month for April 2010! I'm so glad you were brought to our attention because my image of Libya was formed twenty years ago and probably hasn't been updated since. I presume it's the same for others.

    I was blog of the month in December 2008. Here's my entry:

  4. I got the A&W root beer (the real thing!) from the supermarket in Suk Marjan in Benashur. I went back there today and there wasn't any. A friend of mine said they had some in Suk Libya which is also in Benashur. Keep your eye out for it.

    Karen... thanks for stopping by!

  5. OMG! I want some. Me being in UAE, I still haven't found this. Gonna go look for it, this weekend. Insha'a'Allah! I find it.
