Can you guess the price?

Let's play guess the price of this item!!!!

A single can of A&W root beer costs how much (in Swiss francs)?

Any guesses?

And the answer is....
(highlight the text in between the arrows)

----> 3.90 CHF! <----

I can only imagine the taxes that would make this little can cost so much. After a year, I continue to be shocked by some of the prices here. But then again, when you want a root beer float, nothing will stand in your way!

WHERE did you find this root beer? Sadly, I would pay SFr 3,90 for it...hey, cheaper than buying a Coke in a Swiss restaurant...

Cindy's Diner Herrlisberg off the A3 between the Wadenswil and Richterswil exits. The store portion sells some American products- Reese's Pieces, boxed cake mix, etc. They have pretty good burgers too!

And I bought two cans :-)

Wow. That is not cheap.

You can also get root beer at the Beers of the World shop in the Zurich Hauptbahnhof. I think it is also about that price.

Funnily enough though, in the Newark airport I had an A&W Rootbeer float while waiting for my plane and it was $4.11 with tax for the smaller size. So this can is actually not too far off if you can get the ice cream for cheap! Delicious it was. Pity no photo. :)
