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.
