Okay. So, I've tried this with three different types of ice cream. Plain vanilla, apple pie, and cinnamon. All three were excellent. Not only do I love these, but my whole family does as well. (BTW, I've been able to find quarts of apple pie ice cream right now as a limited edition flavor at my local Fred Meyer. Those in the Southern states would know that chain as Kroger.) WTG, stylistmama! You made my week. These are going to be a regular rotation during the fall months. I owe you one! TIP: If you want the fizz in your float but don't want to dilute the apple flavor of your cider, use sparkling apple cider! Read More

It was only okay. It sounds like it would be absolutely fabulous but it tastes like apple cider with ice cream. I mean you can't really go wrong - but it isn't anything to scream home about. It probably depends on the type of cider you use... Read More

What an amazing simple idea that I NEVER would have thought of on my own! I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon sugar on top. Thanks stylistmama - beautiful job! Read More

We tried this recipe because we love apple pie with vanilla ice cream and thought it would be fabulous. But no one liked it. Sorry. Read More

One thing you can't ever top is a good old fashioned Root Beer Float... But I really wanted to try this. Turns out this is sadly only "meh" - Even with Ginger Ale in it. And this is coming from someone who generally can't get enough cider. Read More
