March 22nd, 2013. Spicy Guacamole Teen Burger~!
I’ve driving by posters of a new limited time only A&W Spicy Guacamole Teen Burger. Usually I don’t do A&W but after my enthralling encounter with an A&W coke float last year and occasional good impressions of their burgers I’ve been warming up to A&W’s fare.
Nab called me to see if I wanted to catch up so I suggested A&W: Ah, finally I could now try the burger that had been beckoning me through the posters!
The spicy factor came from the jalapeno and the guacamole seemed fairly fresh. The southwestern sauce on the bun gave a nice creamy zesty flavor against the sweet and tart tomato, cheese, and the rich bacon. I enjoyed it!
But the Onion Rings….oh boy….my first interaction with these were 10 years ago and I was so appalled by them that I had developed an unjust prejudice against A &W. At the time I thought, “Man, if the onion rings are this bad the burgers must be worse!” I can definitely say this: the onion rings are still bad. The coating is strangely mealy and crumbles off the rings and they just aren’t good.
The Coke Float, though? AWESOME! Cold, creamy, sweet and everything delightful! Definitely quenched my coke float craving 😀
