Soda Floats on a Hot Summer Day!

Soda Floats on a Hot Summer Day! 1290 861 sodacity

A Little History

Since the 16th century, the first Europeans who settled in North America made sassafras-based beverages similar to the root beer we enjoy today, which is made from sassafras roots, bark and other ingredients (depending on the root beer recipe). But it wasn’t until the late 19th century that root beer was considered a commercial drink. Charles Hires, the first person to market root beer successfully, hoped the drink would replace alcoholic beverages during the temperance movement, according to “Sundae Best: The History of the Soda Fountain” by Anne Cooper Funderburg. A devoted Quaker, Hires promoted his product, Hires Root Beer, on the claim that the drink had medicinal effects. In 1893 Hires got a spot at the World’s Fair in Chicago to share his root beer.  Credit to Chicago Eater

The creation of the root beer float came years after the first Chicago soda fountain, supposedly invented in 1893 by Colorado gold mine owner Frank J. Wisner.

We really don’t know how it happened but we do know we’re glad someone invented it!!!  We also love our brown cow recipe.   

Bottom line is soda floats are the easiest best dessert ever!  Simple and quick and no one is ever disappointed.  I think the root beer float is more American than Apple pie myself.  I have never had a bad day while drink a float!!

Carlin from the Root Beer Store in Sandy  Utah wanted to find out.  So he got 15 or so people a boat load of ice cream and started popping the tops on his 100 or so root beers that he stocks.

Carlin and his customers are root beer enthusiasts to put it mildly.  If you love root beer a trip to his store is a must.
