Does anyone remember what year/decade A&W changed from their classic menu of
Papa,Mama,Teen (with bacon,everyone's fave) and Baby burgers.
Going back after so many years the only thing that looks familiar is they still sell those little glass rootbeer mugs.
Here's a partial answer that I found. It seems that the family of burgers began in the US in 1963 and ended sometime in the early 1980's.
A & W Food Services of Canada re-introduces the Burger Family in western Canada, featuring the BabyBurger, TeenBurger, MamaBurger, PapaBurger, and GrandpaBurger. Most of the Burger Family products were taken off the menu in the early 1980s."
This site also has a history and the fellow has the full history of mugs at http://www.islandnet.com/~kpolsson/mugshots/awusmug.htm
