Breyer's A&W Root Beer Float
An Ice Cream (& Sherbet) Review

UPDATE - June 2009 - Breyer's A&W Root Beer Float has been discontinued.

I hate to say it, but I knew this was a mistake from the very first taste. I like root beer (though it's been awhile), and I love ice cream, but this just doesn't work for me. You're probably asking why I bothered buying it in the first place. I was trying to be open minded when I picked this up, but I just can't get over that soda feel to the whole thing. Yes, I should have expected it, that's the whole point of this flavor. I just expected something more mellow I guess. Wow, am I making any sense whatsoever?

I actually tried to cover up the flavor with Nesquik, but it wasn't strong enough. I tried to add some more Nesquik, and a hint of strawberry, but that was even worse. Ya know, it almost had a coffee flavor to it after that. Yeah, into the sink it goes. Sorry. I'm sure this is good to float lovers, but it's just not for me.

Hmm...haven't heard of this flavor yet! Sounds interesting! It was a good idea - since ice cream floats are good - but as an actual ice cream flavor...I don't know. I'd love to try it - but I don't think it'd be my favorite!

Personally, I love this icecream. In fact the reason I am on the net typing this, is because I was looking for a place to buy it here in San Diego. Stater Bros Grocery did have it for a while and I would buy 2 gallons every week, but they recently stopped carrying it. Neither of the two big groceries (Vons and Ralphs) carry it either. So I was trying to find someplace on the net that I can order it from, and ended up here
