Oh no, not A&W!!
Near out place in Vermont is an A&W drive-in. Like going right back to the 1950’s except the girls on roller skates have piercings and tattoos. You stay in your car, they come to you on roller skates, and the food is served on a tray that hooks over the drivers side window. Root beer and the world’s best root beer floats are served in big frosty mugs.
It’s been a part of our summer for years!! I’ll sure miss the hot dogs and root beer floats.
If A and W would DUMP HFCS and replace it w/ GOOD Old Fashioned White Suger in thier sodas THAT just MAY keep them afloat(get it “afloat”, sigh).
Root beer were the first two words my daughter learned to say. We passed an A&W every evening on the way home from where she stayed during the day while I worked. They had those tiny little iced mugs for kiddos for a nickle and it was one of our regular stops. No one has made root beer that is anywhere as near as good as theirs and their floats were to die for.
