Root Beer Float Oreos Taste Like Retro Soda Parlors and Drive-In Movies

Fried chicken Oreos might be a tragic farce, but we are pleased to announce that new Limited Edition Root Beer Float Oreos are in fact real. And they’re delicious. Like most other seasonal Oreos, these RBFs come on Oreo’s vanilla-flavored “golden” cookies. Which is perfect, considering the cookies smell exactly how root beer floats taste. We picked up a bag from our local Vons and proceeded to reminisce about sock hops and ’50s style diners and a million other summer-type things we’ve only seen in movies, but imagine were pretty cool back in the day.

As for the root beer and vanilla creme filling, there also seems to be the faintest hint of carbonation, possibly from the baking soda, but also possibly from our over-eager imaginations.

Still, for tricking yourself into thinking you’re sucking down a root beer float without actually breaking out any ice cream and soda, there’s probably nothing better

Wienerschnitzel Reveals a 99¢ Mini Root Beer Float

Expanding their economic dessert options, Wienerschnitzel is introducing a Mini Root Beer Float that is priced just under a dollar.

The new Root Beer float joins the ranks of the brand’s range of Soft Serve Cones (Vanilla, Chocolate Dipped Vanilla), Freezes (Cookie Dough, Oreo, M&M, Butterfinger, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup), Shakes & Floats (Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry) and Old Fashioned Sundaes (Hot Fudge, Chocolate, Strawberry and Caramel).

The original Tastee Float Mug Root Beer sets you back 440 calories and 7 grams of fat, so we assume a ‘mini’ version is a bit less in all nutritional categories.

Eladio's Restaurant

Recently I was in Santa Barbara for my uncle Mark’s wedding. After an incredible night of drinking and partying, and a morning of a pretty heavy hangover, food couldn’t sound any better. My sister had been to this spot on State St. called Eladio’s which sounded great to all the parties involved, so we all walked down the beach to get some breakfast. Follow me through this meal, because it was seriously on another level.
