Friday we stopped off at the neighborhood liquor store to get some beverages. Darie had a Schneider Weisse, Mark had a St. Peter's Creme Stout, and I had. Henry Weinhad's Root Beer. Flavored with sarsaparilla, honey, and vanilla, it poured like a stout with a small head and texture was a bit sharp with carbonation. I guzzled it as if it were the real thing. Right tasty!
I've seen Virgil's, but until last night, I have avoided root beer. Trader Joe's has it. After checking out Weinhards ingredients, I won't be drinking it agin. Too much high fructose corn syrup and phosphor acid.

While you were drinking your root beer, I stopped off at Blue Marble around the corner, after taking my son out for some pretty pedestrian tapas, and bought myself a mini-marble of root-beer-flavored ice cream in a sugar cone. It was dee-lish.

I love grapefruit and grapefruit flavored stuff. Unfortunately, I cannot have grapefruit because of my meds. I asked my wife, the pharmacist, if I really had to stay away from grapefruit. She said it didn't matter to her, but where was again that I want my ashes scattered? So I stay away from grapefruit. But I have heard that the San Pelegrinos are very good.
If I can just get off of this LA freeway, without getting killed or caught...

CAUTION, THREAD DRIFT:
Anyone remember Shasta trailers, with their stupid little wings on the back? My family had another brand of travel trailer back then, can't recall the company, but I can recall that before every road trip, we would get a case of SHASTA BLACK CHERRY COLA!

A&W was always my favourite. Marvellous stuff, old good memories.
Been drinking San Pellegrino for a few years. Love the grapefruit, and the blood orange. However, do NOT try the chinotto. It is vile. Very popular in Italy I gather, but it is weird, and just plain bad.
