The root beer floats were sold out quickly, as the cups were very popular because of the unique light-up design.
Many people expressed disappointment that the cups sold so quickly, stating that they were willing to even buy a second cup just to get another root beer float. For health reasons, another root beer float could not be sold in the same cup.
The leadership teacher, Mrs. Louise Gonzalez, was surprised at how quickly they sold. She expected it to take all of the lunch period, but instead it took about three quarters of the lunch.
The cups must have been special, because to this day people are still carrying them around school.
