brown cows

Do you ever want an ice cream float but have no ice cream? Well, a brown cow is kinda the same thing.

I read about them a long time ago in a magazine somewhere and thought, "pop and milk?! gross!" But then, as with all things, I couldn't get it out of my mind and had to try it.

Did you also know that they now make a Rolo chocolate Nesquik syrup? I really wish they'd bring back banana. Do you remember banana milk syrup? That was some of the best stuff ever! I just stopped typing for a bit... I was off on a tangent dreaming of different flavoured milks.

I don't really know if there's much of a difference if you use chocolate or rolo syrup in a brown cow because, honestly, I haven't had a proper brown cow since high school! The modified rolo brown cow is delicious, however, and if ice cream floats are your thing, you should really like this.

milk (any kind will do. I used almond and although it tends to separate when mixed with anything, it's still good)
root beer
chocolate syrup (the rolo is very good, but not necessary)

Fill a drinking glass half with root beer, half with milk, and a squirt of chocolate syrup. Mix and enjoy!

I remember someone in highschool saying that they drank rootbeer with milk in it at home. I forgot about that until now! I'll totally end up trying this
