Root Beer Float Day

Root Beer Float Originally uploaded by horsepj
Oh my goodness it's National Root Beer Float Day yall! (August 6) I love root beer floats! The bad thing is, if I have one today, I really have to have one tomorrow too- then it goes on and on :( I found out some neat float flavors while I was reading- I'll share them with you :) Other Float Flavors: Boston cooler: composed of ginger ale and vanilla ice cream. Snow White: 7 Up or Sprite and vanilla ice cream. Coke float: Coca-Cola brand sodas and soft serve ice cream. Purple cow: In the context of ice cream soda, a purple cow is vanilla ice cream in purple grape soda. I've had all of them before except the Purple Cow- I don't have a clue what that tastes like. Does anybody know? Live Everyday like a Holiday yall! Make some fun floats for your family :)

My family loves the snow white float but today we are having a root beer float. I home school my children and this week we are learning about food Holidays and having a cooking lesson for each food. Thank you for all your information. Jane & Family of 5

Ya know, I thought for sure there would be one called a "Dream Sickle float" but I couldn't find any information anywhere about it.

I'm sure you guys remember eating those orange and vanilla ice cream treats called a dream sickle when you were a kid. Right??

Well I think a orange drink with vanilla ice cream would taste just like it. I say that because I like it for a treat sometimes myself. ;) Pam

How's the Boston Cooler? The idea of ginger ale and vanilla ice cream together seem rather odd.

Ya know what Andrew, I'm going to say it taste something like a party punch- the reason I say that is because many punch recipes (like champagne punch) has equal parts of ice cream and ginger ale-

Ginger ale by itself is not my favorite flavor - but mixed with other stuff is nice

Hi Pam! Boy oh boy am I glad to "see" you! I somehow misplaced your link and wound up on the other website. Now, I put you in my sidebar so I know where you are!!! I'm going to "grab" the link to this GREAT post and add it to the post I just did for Charles Hires. "Perfect"

P.S. Are Dreamsicles the same as Creamsicles?

Thanks so much for sharing...
