Do You Miss A&W Root Beer? These Supermarkets Still Supply It!
Buy a tub of vanilla ice cream while you're at it!

Ask any¬†Pinoy who classifies themself as a Millennial, Generation X, Baby Boomers, or older: "If you¬†were given¬†a chance to bring back restaurants from your childhood, what restaurants would those be?" Spoiler alert: A common answer would be A&W Restaurant¬†and their famous root beer and¬†root beer float.
The restaurant set the standard of root beer float so high that patrons can still remember¬†its taste as if they had¬†a frosty glass of A&W's ice-cold root beer topped with vanilla soft serve like it was yesterday. This¬†is¬†even if it has been more than a decade¬†since A&W¬†restaurants in the Philippines closed down.¬†
Alas, our wish for an A&W Restaurant to reopen will remain wishful thinking. For now, we still have the next best thing: cans of A&W Root Beer. Luckily, we found three supermarkets that supply this delicious canned root beer:¬†
- - AllDay Supermarket sells A&W Root Beer in a 12 oz. can, priced at P44 per piece. You can buy this via¬†AllDay Supermarket's website.
- - Landers Superstore has a 12-pack A&W Root Beer, priced at P439.25. You can buy this via¬†Landers Superstore's website.
- - S&R Membership Shopping has a 12-pack A&R Root Beer, priced at P419. You can buy this via MetroMart.¬†
If you really want to get a closer taste of A&W's root beer float, you might as well buy a tub or pint of plain vanilla ice cream, too. Just remember to chill the ice cream and the root beer before assembling the root beer float at home.
