A & W Cream Soda is a cream soda carbonated soft drink introduced by A & W Root Beer in 1986. A & W Root Beer was first sold at a Veterans Day parade in Lodi, California in 1919 and the company established in 1922 by Frank Wright and Roy Allen. The first product they created was A & W Root Beer. It was not until 1986 that A & W Brands, headquartered in White Plains, N.Y. introduced A & W Cream Soda and A & W Diet Cream Soda through its network of franchised bottlers and distributors. Although cream soda had been created in 1852 by E.M. Sheldon, A & W Brands was one of the first American companies to make it commercially.
