A news release states the flavor includes Blue Bell’s vanilla ice cream swirled with an A&W Root Beer-flavored sherbet.

“We received many requests for an A&W Root Beer Float Ice Cream,” John Neal Robinson, Blue Bell general sales manager, said in the release. “After the huge success of Dr Pepper Float Ice Cream last year, we were ready to work together on another delicious flavor. We recommend enjoying a few scoops in a chilled mug just like your favorite root beer.”

The new flavor is available in the 23 states where Blue Bell products are sold. The creamery also ships products nationwide.

In March, Blue Bell released the Gooey Butter Cake ice cream flavor to celebrate its expansion to Missouri. It is still available in stores in half-gallon and pint sizes.
