Never saw a float with milk and coke. When we were kids, we put the scoop of vanilla into a tall glass and then just poured coke over it. I always loved the way the ice cream and soda created this strange, coke-y smelling foam.

I'd never heard of milk or cocoa powder in a float either. I might have to give this one a try! I bet it adds a little something special!

And if not, I'll just take the vodka suggestion...hehe.

Vodka suggesstions are usually good suggesstions.

I'd heard of the cocoa powder and milk, but I'd never heard that thwe milk should be hot, and that's probably why my coke floats seem off compared to ones I've had in restaraunts. Thanks, I'll definitely give that a try.

Milk in with a float is an egg creme, I think, although the carbonated part is usually just soda water.

Can anyone second this?

Edy's Root Beer Float Ice Cream

I have to go to the store seems like everyday due to family needs. When they request ice cream, I try to notice ones with NO calories? Sure. Well, yest erday I picked up Limited Edition of Edy's Root Beer Float flavored ice cream. Sampled spoonful and sure does taste like it. Did surprise me. This way I didn't have to buy root beer just dish out in bowl. I don't think this brand is limited to my area alone so some of you may have chance to try it.

An egg cream does not have any ice cream. It is basically just chocolate mile with soda water. A traditional egg cream uses Fox's chocolate syrup. There is also a certain technique in how you assemble it.
