When I lived in Spain and didn't have access to root beer, one of the things I constantly craved was root beer floats. I haven't had a desire for one in a long time, but when I stumbled upon this photo in the Savory Sights group in the YumSugar Community, I couldn't help but want a frothy, creamy root beer float! Lauren shared this image with the simple and concise caption, "gosh, it was delicious!" Do you love root beer floats? Don't you want one after seeing this pic?!
It doesn't matter if you have a sand baby or a lil sun soaker, most kids love or are at least curious about the water. Whether you're swimming at the beach or in a backyard pool, help your child feel comfortable while learning to make like a fish. Here are a few products that will keep your wee one's head above water, but never rely on a float to insure your kid's safety. And of course, nothing replaces adult supervision.
What if I told you that you could have a hassle-free root beer float anytime you wanted? Well, thanks to the folks at A&W, you can! They recently announced a new line of drinks — A&W and Sunkist Floats ($1.79 each/$5.99 for four) — that promises to deliver a real float experience without all the fuss. Personally, I like the fuss associated with floats. Getting ice cream stuck in your straw is part of the fun! Yet, I can see where some people might like to indulge without the hassle. According to Andrew Springate, vice president of marketing at A&W, they have been trying to create this drink for quite some time. When asked about it, he said:
For years, beverage makers have tried to crack the code and develop an indulgent drink that tastes like a homemade float. The A&W and Sunkist Floats are indulgent treats like nothing consumers have experienced before; one pour and your taste buds will be amazed — no work, no hassle.
I haven't seen them at any of my local stores, but they should be hitting the market shortly. When they do, will you be picking one up?
