I used to eat/drink a lot of ice cream floats when I was a teenager. I haven't had it for ages though I suggested it to my daughter recently. I feel an ice cream float coming my way soon. I've never tried it with root beer, though. I'll give it  try next time I see root beer for sale.

i ate a lot of ice cream floats when i was younger too (surprising, i know, with my stunning, slim figure. 555) and have also not had one for ages. my thai husband surprisingly likes root beer so i'll have to suggest it the next time we go grocery shopping.

i also really like floats made with vanilla ice cream and orange juice. tastes like a creamsicle.
although i haven't tried it with thai orange juice... i imagine it would still be pretty good.

old Jubbly was an orange drink in a plastic / cardboard container that looked like a small pyramid , and if you put them inro your freezer , they made Orange Ice pyramids that you sat licking on the park bench , just before you went to mug some old aged pensioner  ;D

God I remember these from when I were a lad, as they say up north. Used to be very popular in Cardiff when I was young.
If at first you don't succeed you are clearly not cut out for it. Give up and move on.

I have never tried Root beer but going back in time again and reading about dandelion & burdock pop brought back another childhood memory for me. In Cardiff we used to have a sasperella (you guessed I don't know how to spell it) shop, which was a real treat on a saturday. Pints and 1/2 pints just like a pub and it tasted good too.

miranda (which is owned by pepsi i believe?) has root beer too but be forewarned.. is tastes like crap.
opt for A&W whenever possible and stewarts if you can find it.

I can remember the first time I tasted Miranda Orange about 20-25 or more years ago (in Europe somewhere). I thought it was quite nice. Years later, it appeared for sale in the UK. I thought "Great!!" However, when I drank the UK version, it was awful! Nothing like the "original" European Miranda.  >:(

but did you try it with vanilla ice cream as a float?
it's much better as a float. it's kind of strange on its own.

ginger ale is much better as a straight up soda pop.
