Here’s something you probably don’t know about me. I LOVE ROOT BEER! When I was pregnant with Madison, I cut tea, coffee or caffeinated pop from my regular diet so Scott made plans for us to visit Galco’s Soda Pop Stop after a trip to the Rose Bowl Flea Market. There were flavors of pop that I had forgotten even existed yet here they were all in one place. We bought a mixture of root beer, ginger beer and some other tasty flavors and walked out spending more than I would have ever expected. But I was happy since finding anything besides mainstream root beer was unheard of. Mind you, that was a time before the internet provided the opportunity to shop right from the comfort of your own home. Since that time, we’ve regularly purchased gourmet root beer because it’s nice bond with the family while sipping these sweet treats. Thank goodness we don’t need to fly to Los Angeles to have all these delicious options!
