Barq’s is selling Root Beer Floats in a tube

As a kid, when you heard the iconic song “Turkey in the straw” blaring from a loudspeaker you knew the ice cream truck was near.  Thinking back on it makes me smile; the ice cream sandwiches, orange flavored push pops and rainbow pops gave me more than my fair share of brain freezes.

The one thing I always wished was on those ice cream trucks was a fresh root beer ice cream float. But the only places you could get that was in a ice cream shop or at home, made by mom or dad. But there is good news for me—and every other root beer and ice cream lover out there— introducing the Barq’s Frozen Root Beer & Vanilla Ice Cream Float Tubes.

They do indeed exist and I am seriously considering trying to find every box and buy them.  (I got a deep freeze with plenty of room.) In each box, you’ll get 24 squeeze-up tubes, each tube containing 3 fluid ounces of Barq’s magical creamy goodness.

According to Barq’s every tube is “swirled to perfection—a mix of Barq’s classic root beer alongside delicious vanilla ice cream, and contained within a tube that’ll make it possible to take your dreams with you on the go.”
