Maybe it’s my old age setting in but I love VINTAGE things. I have been collecting this roundup of Vintage icecream soda parties for some time but never getting around to actually post it. But it gets even better because with old age comes patience and with patience came the opportunity to give away this amazing Source Soda Maker and thus I had the perfect reason to share with you this roundup.

    Making ice cream floats with my kids when they were very little on hot summer days. They would sit in their wading pool and I didn’t care how sticky they got

    When I was growing up one of my friends was in ballet and her mom would take us out to Carvel for ice cream sodas after the recitals. So delicious, thank you for a chance to win!

    I remember helping my mom make our first rootbeer float together. That was fun.

    Unfortunately, I didn’t discover how good ice cream sodas were until I was an adult. Imagine all those years without them!

    I don’t have any ice cream soda memories but, I’d love to win and make some!

    My sister and I used to always make root beer floats together. We live over a thousand apart now but when we get together we still make floats. Thanks for the awesome giveaway :)

    We always made them at home when I was a kid-lots of cream soda and my favorite ice cream…yum!

    My favorite was a Root Beer Float. Could not get enough! When I was young we had a soda fountain inside a diner. It was a special treat when we would get one. Our family, like so many did not have a lot of money, so we learned to appreciate these special treats. I would love to introduce my grandchildren to them.

    Thank You,

    Love soda stream!

    My grandpa had one of the last soda fountain/pharmacy establishments in the bay area. I grew up learning the ins and outs of making soda floats and scooping the “perfect” scoop of ice cream onto cake cones. :-)

    My fondest memories are of taking “rides” with my Grandparets on hot southern summer days. Cars didn’t have air conditioning; we would roll the windows down and just drive. Grandpa loved driving and we would just “go” and enjoy the scenery or “new discoveries.”
    Occasionally, as a very special treat, we would stop for “ice cream” on the way home. I would share an ice cream soda with Grandma, then when my Brother got older, he and I would share one.
    Those memories put a smile on my face!

    Ice cream, any way, any flavor!

  15. Sylvia on May 22, 2014 7:19 pm

    Back when I was a young girl, we would go to Kreskes, Woolworths.Goldblatts, Walgreens, or just about any store that had a soda fountain, and have a Cherry Coke or a Green River, hoping that some cute guys would come around and talk to us. Oh yes, those were the days!

    My favorite memory is when my husband and I first started dating in college we went to the beach and afterwards we hit up this old school drive in for icecream sodas, I got a vanilla rootbeer and he got a lime green ice cream soda. As we drove off we each had our first sips. Well my “cool” boyfriend started gaging after his sip … at the time his college palette for burgers and fries made him gag at the taste of a lot of things but it turned out that the drive-in didn’t change the line out and he was drinking green soda water over ice cream :)

    My favorite ice cream soda memory was when I was a child my grandmother made them for the kids as a treat every weekend

  18. Bethany LeMaster on May 26, 2014 7:34 am

    I don’t have any memories yet but id like to make some with this!

    When I was a little girl my uncle owned his own drugstore. He gave icecream tickets to kids having to wait for prscriptions to be filled. I sat happy as a lark at his soda fountain counter eating my strawberry icecream float, made by “Miss Vera”, not giving the wait a second thought! :)

    I loved making root beer floats with my dad whenever he was watching all of us on a summer night

  21. Emily C on May 28, 2014 8:23 am

    When I was little my favorite treat was rootbeer floats.

  22. Meena R on May 30, 2014 1:29 am

    I remember making soda floats with my dad when I was younger. We would make them and then sit on the porch and just enjoy the day.

    My favorite ice cream soda memory was when I was in fifth grade with my BFF having a rootbeer float and french fries at Newberry’s soda fountain. Riding our bikes to this store on the weekend and being able to have a treat was a big treat back in those days. I love Newberry’s soda fountain.
