If you walked into an ice cream parlor in 1947 and ordered a root beer float, you’d probably end up with something quite different from what you’d get today. The root beer float, also known as a black cow float in the thirties and forties, was root beer mixed with a couple of shots of chocolate syrup and topped with vanilla ice cream. We’ve attempted to re-create the old black cow experience with this flavor. It’s a root beer–flavored ice cream with swirls of milk chocolate.
