Celebrating Family Fun Nights this Summer with A&W Root Beer

This post is sponsored by A&W Root Beer. All views and text are mine. 

I love summer for a million reasons. I love spending time with my family on the beach, the long summer nights and the fact that our schedules are more relaxed and not as hectic.

Summer is also the perfect time to unwind and unplug from our technology-saturated lives. And for this reason, I’m glad that we’re taking part in A&W Family Fun Nights!

A&W is celebrating 100 years of sweet family memories by calling on its fans to create new ones. This summer, A&W Root Beer invites families to take the pledge to go technology-free for 1 hour on Friday nights and create special memories instead!

For our family, we love spending time in our swimming pool, have cookouts and campfire nights and of course, enjoying lots of yummy food and sweet treats!

Speaking of sweet treats, A&W is helping us celebrate family fun nights by recreating the perfect timeless family night treat: A&W’s Original Root Beer Float!

Now, how easy is this recipe? Just start with a frosted mug, add 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream, then fill to top with A&W Root Beer! This float is so delicious and my whole family loves it! If you want to add more sweet fix-ins and toppings like brownie bits, toasted marshmallows, chocolate chips, sprinkles, etcetera, try their other yummy float recipes too. My fave is the Brownie Sundae Root Beer Float!

You’ll also be glad to know that if you “Take the Pledge” to go technology-free for 1 hour on Friday nights and make family fun to remember for years to come, you’ll be able to download a coupon redeemable for a FREE 2 liter of A&W Root Beer! Now, you really have a reason to make any of the yummy A&W Root Beer floats!

To jumpstart your Family Fun Nights this summer, A&W also debuts a first-of-its-kind Family Fun Night kit, featuring a carefully curated selection of novelty items and essentials for creating root beer floats at home to help make family time even sweeter and more memorable!

    I love A & W rootbeer. It has been a long time since I have had it. And oh my a rootbear float, brings me back to my childhood. I think I am going to have to cheat and treat myself.

    I have never had root beer in my life, should try it the next time I visit the US. 🙂

    My husband and I make our floats differently. I do the traditional float, he mixes his in a blender to make it more of a smoothie.

    A&W root beer was one of my favorite childhood sodas! I always enjoyed it with a scoop of ice cream, so good.

    I love A&W Root Beer. It’s the best brand in my opinion. I actually use to work at an A&W when I was in high school too. I don’t drink soda much, but I do love my A&W Root Beer.

    I never had root beer float but my daughter said it is really good. This is perfect for family game night.

    A root beer float is the first thing I want for family nights. The drink compliments the taste of the ice cream in a good way. Certainly my jazz.

    We love root beer floats. It’s a summer tradition at our house. I can’t believe Summer is almost over.

    What a great campaign! And looks like that kit is full of adorable and fun goodies. My husband is a root beer fan. He’d love that kit.

    A & W root beer is delicious! It would be fun to have some authentic A & W mugs. We had one near us, and it was so sad when they closed.

    I was a carhop in the 70s and I have so wanted to do this campaign, but I cannot find it! Ha! The root beer float looks amazing. I think this is the best ad ever!

    We love Summer too. I haven’t had a rootbeer float in decades. Now I have to get some Root Beer and make these.

  15. 08/19/2019 / 10:24 pm

    My boys love making root beer floats. A&W is the best root beer too. I’ll have to grab the supplies and let the boys make a root beer float before the end of summer.

    Now, this sounds like a good root beer to have around the home ready for those nights in with friends and family. It sounds like the perfect drink to sup on from movies to games night.

    I love A&W root beer floats! I haven’t had one in a long time, but now I’ll be craving one until I get it!

  18. 08/19/2019 / 6:48 pm

    Yum! To say I’m an A&W addict is an understatement. It’s actually the only soda I drink and it’s the best root beer on the market.

  19. 08/19/2019 / 5:44 pm

    Yum, we love Root Beer. It’s been ages since I’ve made floats, so I”ll have to pick up the supplies. We should do that before school starts back up next week.
