You Definitely Need These New Barqs Root Beer Float Pops

And they are less than 100 calories each!

Root beer floats, that classic summer treat, are a winning combination of cold, fizzy root beer and creamy vanilla ice cream. But classic root beer floats come with a price, and that’s the price of actually assembling them, which can be kind of a pain. Homemade root beer floats often result in sticky hands and sticky glasses, and someone almost always spills. If there are kids, there is an argument about how much ice cream goes in each glass…you get it. That’s why it’s such huge news that Barq’s (which makes the best root beer, in this writer’s humble opinion) has come out with root beer floats neatly contained in one tube.

Yes, dear reader, the perfect swirl of creamy vanilla soft serve and icy root-beer soda frozen into one convenient pack that resembles those push pops we used to eat as kids (were they sherbet? Were they even a flavor? I can’t remember). Plus, they weigh in at only 90 calories per pop, which isn’t terrible.
