Root Beer Floats! Who knew.

Jens does it again

I used to have troubling deciding between chocolate and strawberry as my top choice, but this year at the Tour of Colorado I discovered the root beer float!

lol, yea, not so much fancy as prolly more European ( French, I think ) but it was kinda my point. Common as fries here but I know very few people here that use a kinda mayo looking concoction on their frites

I can't ever remember seeing a Rootbeer float in either Deutschland, or De Nederlands when I was over there for 6 years Know what I mean?
