The Quarryville resident and life-long A-Treat drinker set up a Facebook page calling for the revival of A-Treat. “It was 11 o’clock at night,” Deemer recalled this week. Allentown businessman Paul Eifler reached an agreement to buy A-Treat. Eifler credited the social media campaigns of Deemer, creator of “SAVE A-Treat soda,” with 13,700 likes, and Bryon Gliem of Pottsville, creator of “Lets Keep A-Treat Sodas Flowin,” with 15,200 likes, with reassuring him that he was on the right... Although Eifler said he had already decided to pursue the revival of A-Treat before he became aware of the two Facebook campaigns, he called the efforts “big reinforcement contributors. Now that Eifler has agreed to buy many of A-Treat’s assets and bring back the product, he said of A-Treat’s Facebook fans, “I just hope they’re all thirsty. Deemer, 31, an alarm system technician who installs and programs the systems, grew up in Easton, east of Allentown. A-Treat, he said, “was always in my house. ” Drinking A-Treat as a youth years ago is a big part of its appeal to him and other fans today, Deemer believes. Deemer, who drinks two cans of A-Treat a day, responded to the January demise of A-Treat by doing more than creating a Facebook page.
This week’s question comes from copy editor Gwen Ihnat:. Now that I’m here in the A. V. Club office (a. k. a. the greatest job in the world), I notice that in our open workspace, earbuds and headphones are a necessity. As I become one with my laptop for eight hours trying to perfect all that great A. V. Club copy, I find myself fumbling for the perfect soundtrack. This week I’m tackling all the various Nashville soundtracks , which are better than the show itself. ” So I’m curious: What’s your favorite thing to listen to while you’re working. Caitlin PenzeyMoog I can only listen to music without lyrics when I’m working: Hearing words is too much for my brain to process when it’s trying to write them. When I was well on my way to high-strung all-As-all-the-time anxiety in high school, my grandfather gave me a CD called Mad About Baroque , which he described as “brain music.
