MITCH Crane's favourite softdrink is sarsaparilla but he loves to try something new.

The founder of the Rockhampton Food Rater Facebook page is learning more about what others enjoy after his post about a soft drink drew a range of comments.

Mitch thought he had discovered a new drink when he saw Kirks' Kolé Beer at Degani in Gracemere.

"I asked the manager about it. He said a customer had requested it," he said. "Apparently it's been around for decades. It's very popular in Western Australia but I've never seen it here before."

Mitch said it was great to get the conversation started on the Facebook page, which now has 500 members.

As a result one man discovered that he could buy L&P, his preferred New Zealand soft drink, at an outlet in Rockhampton.

Another post indicated that A&W Root Beer - a favourite with Americans and Canadians - was normally available here.

Mitch said that Rockhampton restaurant Miss India stocked several different soft drinks, while That Joint was the only place he knew had Mac's Green Apple.
