I know what you’re thinking: root beer floats are vanilla ice cream + root beer. Or, if you’re really adventurous, chocolate ice cream + root beer.
Well, true. But here’s the situation: it’s almost the fourth of July, so we decided to make root beer floats. I have root beer, so we stopped by the Baskin Robbins to get ice cream. For some reason, neither vanilla nor chocolate were seriously considered as our root beer float flavors. Instead, after debating between chocolate-peanut butter and jamoca almond fudge, we picked the jamoca almond fudge. The chocolate-peanut butter lost out because we thought that the peanut butter might clog the bottom of the straw.
It wasn’t bad. But you need a spoon to get all the almonds out of the bottom of the cup when you’re done. It did taste a bit strange, but not as strange as mint chocolate chip or lime sherbet in root beer likely would have.
Must share? Well, I still have the rest of that jamoca almond fudge and some root beer . . .
