I'm looking to buy syrup suitable to prepare drinks. In other words I look for the concentrate to buy so I can dilute it at home.

Something like found on this page (Sorry only available in German/French/Italian but not English).

In case it matters I'm living in California, more specifically in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    There are "German" stores in Mountain View and probably in other areas of the Bay area, but have you tried your neighborhood Safeway or Trader Joe's?

  • Thanks for your comment, I'll try that out. I tried Safeway, Trader Joe's and Wallmart so far.

    I think the UK equivalent of this would be squash. Try googling "orange squash" to see if that fits your criteria.

Soda syrup isn't something typically sold in grocery stores in the US, (though it can be found in a few places) but it is available on the market generally.

I was able to find quite a selection of syrups by searching Amazon.com's soft drink category for "syrup". These range in size from 500mL bottles you may be accustomed to, to 5 gallon (~ 19 L) boxes intended for use in commercial soda fountains.

There are also companies which specialize in it, such as Northwoods Soda, Prairie Moon and Pittsburgh Soda Pop.
