You Definitely Need These New Barqs Root Beer Float Pops

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 Barqs (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.

The Three Snackateers posted about these pops on Instagram after spotting them at a Jewel grocery store:

If it’s sounding like you absolutely need these pops in your life, then head on over to Instacart (or your local grocery store, depending on the location) to order some for delivery. They come in a pack of 24, so there will be more than enough to go around, even if you don’t especially want to share.

How do they taste? One Instagram reviewer declared them “better than the coke float frozen treats that came out”:

And if you feel like these root beer floats are good but you’re looking for something a little boozier, may we suggest these skinny vodka popsicles from Costco that weigh in at a whopping 8% ABV for just 100 calories.

But if you just want to stick to root beer and ice cream, we’ll understand.
