Mix A&W root beer with 25-50% Big K Red Cream Soda.

Always coming up with interesting ideas...thanks, aruzinsky! For those in areas where Big K isn't available, there are a few other red cream sodas available, too.

A&W already defiled its root beer with vanilla. It's like you are accusing me of defiling a prostitute by kissing her.

no, no it is all a matter of degree. a little vanilla is fine and a good thing. too much and it is vile.
if you had the analogy the other way, that adding root beer to cream soda would make the cream soda better, that i will agree with. it reduces the excess vanilla. thus the prostitute (cream soda) would be made more respectable by the society lady (root beer).

You guys are hilarious! The soft drink aisle will now be one of the most exciting in the supermarket...

Yes, yes, it is all a matter of degree. You are assuming that cream soda has more vanilla than A&W Root Beer. I bet that A&W Root Beer has much more vanilla in it than most brands of cream soda. It says "Made with Aged Vanilla" in big letters on the label and I can taste it. I can barely taste vanilla in Big K Red Cream Soda. Adding it to A&W lessens the vanilla and adds a slight tutti fruity flavor, reminiscent of Hires which is no longer available in my area. You would know this if you tried it.

well, i cannot get Big K Red Cream near me but i can get Hires so i have no need to do that. even if i wanted to. which i do not. as cream soda is disgusting so i would never harm the poor root beer molecules by putting them in such close proximity to cream soda molecules.
i also ver much doubt that root beer has more vanilla than cream soda in general. nope, won't buy that for a dollar, sorry.
but you go on and do what you want to do with your drinks, it is a free country (again), so everyone can drink whatever soft drink they desire.

Mmmm... I love a good cream soda. Harder to find than a good root beer.

The other day I mixed a delicious Virgil's Cream Soda with a yummy Natural Brew Root Beer and found that the best of both worlds was not in the mix. It was an extremely mediocre experience. No more mixing for me.
