Hoboken Ice Cream Float
I was searching around the web for some cool float ideas when I came across this Hoboken Ice Cream Float. I thought is was a cool combination of flavors and something new to try. It combines pineapple and chocolate together therefore sounding delicious to me!! Well, chocolate anything sounds delicious to me!!
The original recipe asks for a pineapple syrup and sparkling soda. You could make a simple syrup infused with pineapple but I thought even easier would be to use a pineapple soda. I have seen these around lots, so that was easy to grab. Chocolate syrup, chocolate ice cream and whipped cream are the rest of the ingredients you need to round up and you are onto a new flavor explosion for an ice cream sensation!!
Hoboken is in New Jersey on the Hudson River and is the founding place to the ice cream cone. Agruably the ice cream cone was also introduced early on at the St. Louis World’s Fair. Either way it is Hoboken that gets the ownership to this float entirely and clearly this area had a love for it’s frozen treats.
A float is so nostalgic, something that your kids won’t experience normally in restaurants or “soda shops” now. Anytime I serve a float people are like “wow” that is so good. It can be served as a special treat in the afternoon or as dessert at night. Bring back a little history with this great dessert that young and old will love!!

I had my first ice cream float like 2 weeks ago. IT was really tasty and I am sorry I had not had one sooner.

PINEAPPLE SODA?! Mind. Blown. I will definitely be making these at our end of summer BBQ! What a unique recipe!
I would never have thought to combine pineapple and chocolate in a float. I”ll have to test hop it in my house and see if I can avoid sharing.
I’m always looking for new lunch ideas. These Ham Havarti Pinwheels look so delicious I’m sure they’ll be a hit with the kids.
