The dog days of summer stir up the nostalgia for an ice cream parlor favorite: the root beer float. No need to travel to one of America’s best soda fountains, though. You can enjoy a frosty, frozen take on the classic mash-up without the hassle thanks to Barq’s Root Beer Float Pops.
Since 1898 Barq’s Root Beer has had a simple slogan: “Drink Barq’s. It’s Good.” You can say the same about the frozen floats, too—they’re good!
How Is a Root Beer Float Pop Even Possible?
Skip the frosted glass mugs, root beer and tubs of ice cream needed to make a classic root beer float. Each individually packaged pop features a perfectly proportioned mix of frozen Barq’s root beer and vanilla ice cream in a convenient grab-and-go tube. The slushy frozen soda swirled together with creamy vanilla ice cream is hard to resist. The best part—besides the satisfying taste, of course—is that each pop is less than 100 calories. Count us in!
