    I see the Kemps ice cream a lot, but I do not remember seeing the milk or the seasonal ones. I will look a little closer when I go to the stores at the end of the week. I love egg nog and the Truffel one sounds really good.

    Chocolate mint or truffle milk I can see. And they sound good.
    But I'm sure I never heard of root beer flavored milk before.

    It is different. Just think of a completey liquid root beer float.

    In an effort to promote a generally better diet without sacrificing sensual gratification, I stopped buying ice cream awhile back and began doing plain Stonyfield Farms organic yogurt with locally harvested honey instead. The yogurt is very good (and unlike virtually all the big brands these days, still has the taste and consistency of actual yogurt without gum or goo) and the local pollens in the honey seem to have helped my hay fever too.

    But I think for a Christmas indulgence I'm going to have to get some French vanilla ice cream and a couple bottles of Saranac root beer! I haven't had a root beer float in at least two decades, and now the suggestion has, um, taken root...

    Saranac still tastes to me like root beer should, along with IBC, Boylans and a few other brands. But here again, most mainstream brands seem to have gone wrong somewhere. Aside from the cloying sweetness and aftertaste of HFCS, I think the flavor balance is different nowadays. I'm old enough to remember A&W drive-ins where they would bring out your order on trays that hung outside your car window; the root beer tasted great and, in my memories at least, an icy mug of the stuff had a head on it like beer from a tap. But the last time I bought a bottle of today's A&W it was like wintergreen soda. Grrr...

    I have no problem with wintergreen Christmas candy. Or Pepto-Bismol, for that matter. Especially around holiday feast time. <wry grin> But that's not what I want in a root beer.
