Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Dandelion and burdock

Participants on plant-lore walks often recall drinking ‘dandelion and burdock’ when they were  children, and ask if it’s still available.

It is, and a bottle of it was purchased in Maidstone, Kent, on 8 September 2021.  It tastes rather bland, and it’s unclear how much dandelion (Taraxaxum) and burdock (Arctium) it contains.  Rather enigmatically its list of ingredients reads: ‘water, sugar, malt extract, acid (citric acid), dandelion and burdock flavouring, preservative (potassium sorbate) to preserve freshness’.
