root beer float ice cream

thanks to the pack mentality of the big ice cream makers, today is a 2-in-1: 1. A&W Root Beer Float ice cream from Breyers: vanilla ice cream w/ RB sherbet. 2. Dreyers Root Beer Float ice cream: vanilla + RB ice cream (as opposed to sherbet) (and a ltd-ed, btw). OK so here's the obligatory JITB nod: last summer JITB had a RB float. More precedents: If you’ve visited the folks in Fla, you’ve seen RB float ice cream by smkt chain Publix. Smkt-brand ice cream seems 2 B the last bastion of innovation. To wit: Dreyers’ other summer-’06 flavors are both candy-themed (nestles crunch & butterfinger), done forever already by smkt brands.

Jeeze, what kind of summer song list omits "Summertime Blues"?

You'll find that CNN staffers' and most other journalists' musical tastes are roughly equivalent to supermarket ice cream connoisseurs'.

it isn't root beer icecream!! it is vanilla icecream with root beer laced through it. And when we bought it way back it was delicious if you liked root beer. If you don't like root beer, obviously you wouldn't like it!

I'm so glad you mentioned Publix. It is a GREAT supermarket chain. I almost chose not to leave Florida, because I would be leaving Publix. but, in the end, the enormous bugs chased me out.

also, i have recently seen small a "push-up" type ice cream novelty with Barq's root beer and vanilla ice cream.

(verification word: ioznt....do you suppose it needs an apostrophe?)

oh now come on. Anderson Cooper? i don't think so. Tom Cruise, there's a celebrity I can fathom visiting this blog cuz he's just effing crazy. Donald Trump? why not - that guy has something to prove. Paris Hilton? Definitely. she'll pretty much do anybody. but people, I guarantee you that the real Anderson Cooper is NOT visiting this site. and if he is, i don't want him - especially if he's hassling kirk. get lost, anderson cooper, and don't ever come back here if you know what's good for you

Begone, Anderson Cooper. Buzz Off.

I'll never strap a camera to my head and wander around New Orleans. Though I am considering buying the "city" and making it the world's biggest floating casino. I figure the whole place is worth about five bucks.

Who is this Anderson Cooper, anyway?

You know, they say ice cream is good for the colon. Would you like to see mine?

As long as I'm announcing policy initiatives, i'll let you in on my plans for the middle east. Somebody with a strong sense of direction needs to run this country. And someday I'll get around to that.

Anderson Cooper is SO gay

Listen... All of you media types are so gay. And it is completely irresponsible of you to be divulging details of actions the President (and maybe the Vice President) has taken that are completely within his (and maybe their) authority.

If I suspect you of sending money to a terrorist organization -- like Planned Parenthood, for example -- you're damn right it's within my authority to review all of your financial transactions.

And if the media are going to let everyone know that I am doing that, well, then, they are traitors AND gay!

And don't you think I haven't got my eye on that Tony Snow guy, too. I know where you live, Tony.

Dick, I recommend that you 1. chill out! and 2. try going black. It gives you a really fresh perspective on the world.

HERE'S ONE THING I CAN AGREE WITH DOG KILLER ON. HOWEVER, YOU CAN'T FAKE IT. STUPID HO.

As you're growing up as a teenager, there are a number of things that you look forward to; getting your drivers license,

graduating from high school, going to your senior prom, having your first date and having your first beer. The problem

with this last one is that the drinking age and the thing you want make it something that you just can't have yet. And

still, you want it and will go to any lengths to get it.

Underage beer drinking is certainly no secret and to try to sweep it under the carpet isn't going to make it go away. But

the most odd thing about underage drinking when it comes to beer is that even after kids sneak their first beer, they

still want to have another one. If you're wondering why that sounds so strange then you need to think back to when YOU

had your first beer. It was pretty nasty tasting. Let's be honest, beer is bitter and is an acquired taste. Very few

people, if any at all, enjoyed their first beer. Many even get sick after it because of the taste or the fact that

they're not used to the alcohol yet.
