Sherbet & 7up

I grabbed a 5 qt thing of rainbow sherbet the other day at the grocery store. It was on sale for $2. Every time I open my garage freezer it stares at me and says Why don't you have 7up? We aren't really pop drinkers at our house, so it's not something I think of when I'm shopping or making out my list. I'm not so much a fan of sherbet by itself.

We love 7up & sherbet floats. Sometimes we eat them as floats and sometimes I swish them all up in my smoothie maker. Judging by all the 7up float ads I've seen, these have been around for a while. Why did they go out of style? I think they're much better than root beer floats!

yeah, when did they stop making these? My kids love them! why does rootbeer always get the glam of being a float?

ooh i really love lime sherbet, ginger ale, a little pineapple juice, and some maraschino cherries. oh my goodness, it's amazing! you could probably use 7-up instead of ginger ale!

Yuuum, Angie! I'd never even heard of that - but now I want one. And I'm nursing a baby at 12:26 am. Gonna have to wait, LOL.

You can also use Diet 7up (or Sprite) and mix it with a box of vanilla cake mix and then bake according to directions to make a low-fat, low-cal cake. Tastes AWESOME. Don't add any of the ingredients - just combo a boxed mix and one can of 7up or Sprite and bake. My cousin-in-law made it for a picnic last year and it's so hauntingly good (like a Twinkie). Yummo. Now I really need some 7up. :o)

I love rainbow sherbert! And I love floats like that but have not had one in years!!! Maybe you should just make some today and take some pictures! Enjoy your day!

I have had just what Heather described served as punch at various baby showers...its the best! But kind of rich, so a little punch cup is just enough.

I've never had one but I do love 7-up! I also love rootbeer floats so if these are better, I definitely have to try it! I mixed sierra mist with lime sherbet for my son's birthday party to make "yoda soda" and that was really good, I guess this would be similar. Thanks for linking!
