#135 – Dairy

I think “brown cow” and “black cow” are regional terms and may mean something different where you live. I do remember loving root beer floats when I was a kid. It wasn’t the only float around though. We went through a period of trying every soda possible. Root beer always came out the winner though. Green River soda was a close second for me.

Today’s Biff is sharp.

    7-Up and pineapple sherbet. You won’t be sorry.

  2. Shadowlord9k says:

    It’s made with Pineapple juice.

  3. The Dukenator says:

    I tried root beer & strawberry ice cream float. It was different, better than using lemon ice cream. There was no vanilla at all.

  4. Me says:

    How now brown cow?

  5. McGehee says:

    I thought a brown cow was a root-beer float made with chocolate ice cream — and that the one with vanilla ice cream is just called a root-beer float.

  6. Arix says:

    Over here, any form of ice cream + fizzy drink combo is a Spider.

  7. Morris Keesan says:

    I agree with McGehee that root beer and vanilla ice cream is just a root beer float. I thought the “cows” were frappes (what most of the US calls “milkshakes”, but in Massachusetts milkshakes don’t have ice cream in them).

  8. Rasheed says:

    Arix must be in Australia?

    Living in Michigan gives me access to the Faygo soda Rock n’ Rye which is a shade of red. Making a float from it produced what is locally called a bloody cow and if you ever get the chance to try one don’t pass it up as they are awesome.

  10. Tana says:

    Yep, in Australia, soft drink + icecream = soda

  11. malcar says:

    Where I come from a brown cow is milk + Kahlua. Never heard a root beer float called anything but a root beer float.

  12. Library Lady says:

    In the late 50s there were A&W stands in the summer in Oklahoma.
    Root beer and vanilla ice cream = a root beer float
    Orange crush and vanilla ice cream = an orange float
    Coke and vanilla ice cream = a coke float
    All of it equaled heaven for a group little girls after a night of chasing fireflies and trying to play softball in the dark. Don’t remember anything about colorful cows.

    Where I’m from, Grape soda + Vanilla ice cream = Purple Cow.

  14. Gadora says:

    I thought a brown cow was root beer with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. Take out the syrup and you’ve got yourself a root beer float. replace the root beer in a root beer float with Mountain Dew Voltage and you’ve got something delicious that lacks a name and will keep you up at night.

  15. Vik-Thor says:

    Chocolate ice cream & Mt. Dew.
    (the original Mt. Dew, not these new fangled flavours)

  16. Talon Drone says:

    Orange juice (actual juice, not soda) + vanilla ice cream = orange freeze ^.^

    Australian here (and too young to remember terms from decades past). I have NO idea about ANY of the terms being mentioned in the majority of comments (and the comic itself).

    I do know that a soft drink of any kind (such as coke, lemonade, fanta) with ice cream is often called a “Spider”. Lemonade and ice cream, Coke and Ice Cream… I imagine there’s names for particular flavours, but that’s the limit of my personal knowledge.

  18. Axxle says:

    Orange soda and chocolate ice cream is the zaniest I’ve gotten.

    Guinness + Vanilla is pretty good too!

  19. Proginoskes says:

    A black cow is root beer, vanilla ice cream, and some chocolate syrup.

  20. Random Guy says:

    It was made with pee.

  21. MikeReese says:

    You can’t beat Green River with vanilla or some fruit ice/ice cream/sherbet.
