What Sodas are Good for Floats? 

  • You can literally use any soda for a float. Orange soda, Root Beer, Coke, Pepsi, Grape Soda, and Sprite are all great Ice Cream Float Sodas

How Do You Eat an Ice Cream Float?

  • Ice cream floats can be eaten with a straw and spoon combination or just by using a straw. If you use a spoon, you can scoop at the ice cream and also drink the liquid with your straw. The vanilla ice cream will dissolve in the soda, so just using a straw is fine too
