We all change out tastes for food and drink and whatnot as we get old but there is always that one thing you will always love, that takes you back to being a kid.
Growing up I didnt hate root beer, but it was far from my favorite choice of sodas. I would drink it if there was nothing else. I did however LOVE a good root beer float.
My wife and I were driving past Sonic the other day, and she said, "let's stop after dinner for a root beer float."
I ended up just coming home and stopping on the way and buying some good ol' A&W and some vanilla ice cream. I have been having them every other evening for about 4-5 days now. They are so good.
What is that thing that makes you remember being a kid?

Gonna sound silly, but I was out hunting (something I didn't do as a kid) and my buddy called for me to meet him. To get there I had to venture past knee deep water and I didn't have on boots up to the task. So here was me, gear, shotgun and all, trying to leapfrog from rock to tree to dry bit of grass to make it 30 yds through the swamp. Brought back childhood memories of camping in Vermont and New Hampshire and no, I didn't get wet. (nor did I get deer this year :(
Dragging a hot biscuit through molasses and real butter, great breakfast. My grandmother used to bake fresh biscuits each morning in the old wood burning stove and we always had molasses and home churned butter on hand.

Beer and pizza. That's how I grew up.
Orange and cream soda......reminds me of traveling as a kid and stopping off to eat at cracker barrel.

I agree with the root beer bloat..........wait a minute that's a freudian typo. I do like them too and they bring back great memories. Another is a hamburger and strawberry shake.
BTW had an exchange student from France one year and she hated root beer, said the taste reminded her of something they used at the dentists office over there.
