Whoa mama… These cookies taste exactly like root beer floats in cookie form. Thanks to McCormick and their root beer concentrate for making this cookie possible!
Did you know that root beer extract was one of Willoughby M. McCormick’s first products that he sold door to door way back in 1889? Yup, that’s right.. you read that correctly. There are no typos there. McCormick is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year!
In order to celebrate their anniversary, they started a program called Flavor of Together. It’s a yearlong initiative to share 1.25 million stories about how flavor both unites and defines people across the globe.
For every story shared on any of McCormick’s brand websites or social channels, McCormick will donate $1, up to $1.25 million, to United Way to help feed those in need. All you have to do is join the conversation on flavoroftogether.com where you can share your flavor story. 1.25 million stories equals $1.25 dollars! You can also share your stories on social media using the hashtag #flavorstory. It’s that easy.
If you’ve never tried McCormick’s root beer concentrate before, you should know that the consistency is a bit thicker than say, vanilla extract. The moment you pop open that seal, the aroma of root beer floats lingers into the air and you are instantly taken back to popping open a glass bottle of root beer to pour over your cup filled with scoops of vanilla ice cream. It’s amazing how spot on it is.
These cookies are tame at first and it will get your guests wondering what that familiar taste is, but the after bite is where you’ll taste it. There will be no doubt in your mind that the cookie you just ate is a root beer float. The creaminess of the white chocolate chips are reminiscent of vanilla ice cream.
