A&W: ’56 Buddy Burger, Mama Burger and Papa Burger Review

Diana Chan January 22, 2018 British Columbia, Fast Food

A&W Canada just launched their ’56 Buddy Burger, ’56 Mama Burger, and ’56 Papa Burger. These burgers were inspired by their start in 1956. A throwback to the ol’ drive-in days with lettuce, tomato, cheese, mozza sauce and beef raised without hormones or steroids.

When I heard about these new burgers, I had to head to my closest A&W and give them a try. We got one of each to do this review.

 ’56 Buddy Burger

This little burger makes for a good snack at $2.99. This is made of lettuce, tomato, A&W seasoning, processed cheddar cheese, grilled onions, and mozza sauce in an unseeded hamburger bun. A good classic burger. Similar to the teen burger but with subtle differences.

 ’56 Mama Burger

This is $5.29 and bigger in size compared to the Buddy Burger. All the same ingredients but just bigger.

 ’56 Papa Burger

The Papa Burger is similar size to the Mama Burger but with an extra beef patty at $6.49.

Final Thoughts

All threes burgers taste the same but just come in different sizes. I personally prefer the ’56 Buddy Burger as a snack. You can’t go wrong with A&W burgers as they are one of the better tasting fast food burgers in Canada. It’s my personal favourite. I still prefer the Teen Burger as my favourite A&W Burger.

    Just a heads up, A&W doesn’t use processed cheese anymore.

    Why is it we always seem to be paying $3.00 for the bun an condiments
