(I know this site is for candy but I thought some one might like these too) My hubbie came home with some A&W;floats the other day, they are in a glass bottle and come in orange and rootbeer. They where pretty good the orange tasted like a 50/50 icecream bar and the root beer tasted just like a root beer float I still would choose real icecream in a glass but, it was still pretty good

I’ve seen these out now for a while and have been really tempted to give them a try. The price seems a bit steep for 4 bottles, so thanks for mentioning them! Sounds like it might be worth a shot.

I actually work at a Hy-Vee in Iowa and I’ve seen these multiple times. However, they are not both A&W;root beer. One is, but the other one is Sunkist, so it comes across as an orange creamsicle. I actually did take the time to try both and, seeing as this isn’t candy, I’ll just review the two right here.

A&W;Root Beer and Sunkist Floats: The packaging itself, consisting of a glass bottle with one of those annoying caps, is very retro-tastic in the sense that even the wrapping around the bottle just exudes the words “malt shop”. So, the packaging is attractive, but what about the actual texture? For starters, the A&W;comes across as a bit too creamy, almost as if the root beer was flat when they were making this to begin with. The Sunkist feels like it contains too much ice cream. Actually, now that I think about it, both drinks are flat! You don’t get that great taste when you immediately put ice cream into a still-carbonated soda, which is what is SUPPOSED to be nostalgic. There’s no foam! NO. FOAM.

But, I digress, it’s best to finally get the taste going. A&W;tastes just as it’s texture, too flat and too creamy. Sunkist, however, comes across as a creamsicle that might have been left out in the sun too long. Both drinks taste ok, but not like the REAL thing.

Then again, nothing tastes like the real thing. I kinda prefer drinking a root beer/orange float that I made myself.

What part of the country are you seeing these in? I haven’t seen these on the East Coast yet regrettably, I love rootbeer floats. Even if they’re not “great” i’d still like to try them. And are these sold cold or what? They sound like some sort of drink or frozen treat.
