Rootbeer Buddy Celebration from WaWa!


I just recently got word from my root beer brother Adam that he was moving back to Ohio.  I though in celebration that a review was in order.  I closed my eyes and reached back and felt for the frosty goodness I was craving.
To my disappointment I grabbed a WaWa brand root beer.  The disappointment didn’t go too far as I “popped the top” there was sufficient carbonation and a nice hint of root beer aroma.  The bottle is plastic so I wasn’t expecting too much.  I was surprised, because I’m not a big fan of high fructose corn syrup as a root beer sweetener,  but it was actually a good sweet flavor.  So plastic and corn syrup works well with this brand.  I can say it tastes a lot like those little root beer candies from your local “old time shop.” 
Some history of WaWa.  Comes from WaWa, PA.  That’s all I got to say about that.


 For a store brand root beer I have to say it’s one of my favorites to date.  Did it score very high?  Ehh, not really.  Would I purposely buy this brand to relieve my craving for a frosty brew?  I would.  If I could find it in my hometown or nearby.  All in all, I give this brew a rating of 2.5 Frosty Mugs!

So here-here, my big brother-rootbeer buddy has come home.  Welcome back to the land of milk and honey.  Even though WaWa didn’t have any.

Before the advent of refrigeration, there was no way to preserve juices for more than a day or two as they would spoil. However, ancient peoples soon discovered that there were two types of spoiling - contamination by yeast and contamination by bacteria.
