    We've never had Dad's Root Beer in the South. It's always been Barq's country here. We do have A&W and Mug, but Barq's simply rules.

    I've tried Dad's while on roadtrips and have only seen the Root Beer. However, I was shocked to find the following at Big Lots this week! Nice 1 liter bottles and in several flavors. Is everyone aware of this nice product line??

    I drank Dad's made with sugar cane out of a glass bottle during my youth at our local YMCA. Boy was that a treat on a winter Saterday morning. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I have only seen diet and regular root beer in our local stores. I wonder if the Chi Town Big Lots have the line up of Dad's that you have. Our nearest Big Lots just closed down a few weeks ago.

    I think Dad's is my favorite root beer, but I haven't seen it in almost 10 years.

    Yes, they are very good. I tried the orange cream last night and it's very similar to an orange creamsicle!

    I agree,Dad's is on my A List for sure.
    Chi Town has had fridge packs and cases for a long time. Just recently, I recall seeing those 8oz glass 6pks at the local grocery store.

    I love Dad's because for a mass market root beer, it is very smooth and makes the best root beer floats ever.
