Of course, it’s always fun to try new variations on a classic, so today we’re sharing three fun new ice cream floats variations that you can do from start to finish thanks to a few must-have ingredients from Big Lots. Best of all – you can pick up as much or as little ice cream and soda as you need thanks to the individual servings available in the freezer and beverage aisle. You can mix and match the soda and ice cream flavors each time you visit Big Lots!

A few tips before we get started – make sure that all of your ingredients are cold. We like scooping out the ice cream into bowls and placing them in the freezer so it chills while the soda gets cold and the glasses are prepared. Our glasses of choice are those that are wider at the bottom and narrow on top so it fizzes all the way to the top and keeps the floats “fresher” longer. We found our floats glasses in a four-pack for only $5.00 at Big Lots!
