My wife was shopping at Aldi for some ice cream treats and grabbed these cause they looked good and she knows I need moar content. I’d known about them for awhile but could never find them. I realize that I’m actually quite bad at tracking down things that aren’t root beer proper, and thus for over a year these had eluded me. Anyways, these are equal parts Barq’s Root Beer slushy thing and vanilla ice cream. They actually use Barq’s syrup and thus reading the ingredients reveals caffeine. I think these are the only caffeinated ice cream thing I’ve ever seen/had. They are in little conical type tubes that you squeeze from the bottom as you eat.
There’s a strong root beer flavor with that classic Barq’s taste. They definitely didn’t skimp on it. The vanilla ice cream is rich with a strong vanilla flavor as well, the combination of the two gives a wonderful root beer float experience.
This is by far the best root beer float frozen treat I’ve had. These things are delicious. Barq’s Root Beer float in a tube, I can’t recommend it enough, unless you absolutely need a decaffeinated ice cream treat. But at only 3 ounces a tube, and only half of that root beer, the caffeine is pretty trivial. Either way, I can’t recommend these enough. Get ’em if you see ’em.
