I saw this display of premade rootbeer or orange floats at the grocery store the other day. At first it was intriquing ... but then I got to thinking that maybe it was just one more thing that makes us lazy! I mean really ... how hard is it to scoop vanilla ice cream and pour some pop over it?
Turning one of the cartons over I found that there's a web site for these ... https://www.floats.com ... you can find everything including why they did it and the nutrition information.
As interesting as the idea is, I just don't see a float in a bottle replacing traditional floats. There's just something so summery about controlling the amount of fizz so it doesn't spill over the edge of the glass ... and the total experience of enjoying a float on a hot night sitting outside on the porch. I don't think a float in a bottle will quite do it for me!
