Back in the fifties someone came out with the idea of root-beer-flavored milk. It didn't do well.I have tried the new Chips Ahoy Root Beer Float cookies. You had to know I would. Surprisingly, they are not horrible. They really do have a slight root beer flavor. The taste of root beer in a cookie was more jarring than I expected, and while I'm enjoying the novelty I won't be buying them again. In summary, I respect they've made a product that tastes like what they call it - and I've certainly had worse. But it's just too strange. Root beer is to be drank, not eaten.
