Who put the Sars into Sarsaparilla?

That's not how you spell Saparilla! Is it?

Following the successful completion of a most difficult crossword in which one clue was “Carbonated soft drink (12)” I had much fun at the weekend asking my friends how to spell Sarsaparilla.

Most (like me) knew it as Sasparilla, the American carbonated soft drink, and indeed that’s what it is, but that’s not how you spell it.

Not a single person got even remotely close to the correct spelling.

Bet you wouldn’t have too.

Come on folks. Don't just sit there gawping. Say something. Get involved.
