@David Ashton Our version is the "root beer" float, which consists of root beer (Surprise!) and vanilla ice cream. Same deal, once it gets all melty it's pretty disgusting.

@antedeluvian Wow, thanks for the primer in Rhodesian delicacies! I can't really cast aspersions on your dietary pleasures as when I was a kid I used to love a sandwich consisting of peanut butter, mayo, and lettuce! Granted a notch or two above sardines and condensed milk, but barely. :-)

Karen, David

That sounds absoslutely unappetizing! :-)


Dion't knock until you've tried it. But surely you know it as a coke float. There were high brows amongst us Rhodesians who maintained that coke with ice cream was a coke float and that a brown cow was coke with milk. Searching the 'net, I see that brown cow now has Khalua implications and there were times that a brown cow combined ice cream and root beer (unknown in Rhodesia) whilst black cow used coke.

As to other South African delectables that may give you pause:

Bacon (are you listening, Max?) and Banana sandwich

Bunny Chow: a hollowed out loaf of bread (only van would have it sliced) filled with curried vegetables/meat

and my personal favourite (to churn my stomach): sardines and condensed milk. Condensed milk is pretty much diabetes in a can and the salt of the sardines is supposed to enhance the sweetness, if that were possible.

@Kfield.. "That sounds absoslutely unappetizing! :-)"

It does, but I used to love them when I was a kid.  The coke has to be very cold and you have to eat the icecream before it melts into the coke, otherwise it ends up looking absolutely disgusting.

One of my father's favorites when he was a lad was ginger ale (not Verner's :-) with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  His jocular grandfather would have the same, but he'd add some whiskey to it and call the drink a "mule's neck".

I grew up in Wisconsin, so Van is replaced with Ole (sometimes adding Sven and/or Inga).  Ole is by default Norwegian, unless you're Norwegian in which case Ole is Swedish.  If you're half-Norwegian and half-Swedish, Ole is Danish.

Speaking of which (International Wing of the Old Jokes Home):

A Scandinavian ocean liner shipwrecks on a desert island.  One year later, the Norwegians have built a fishing boat, the Finns have cut down all the trees, the Danes have formed a coöperative and the Swedes are still waiting for someone to introduce them to each other.

@Duane: I being the somewhat obedient kid that I was, and not wanting to waste it, drank the whole mug.

My tummy feels for you
