COKE SPIDERS

Coke Spiders are as close to Halloween as I'm getting this year. I'm not really into all the spooky stuff, but it's such a big community holiday here in Canada, it has rubbed of just a smidge. (Not doing anything celebratory is kind of like being scrooge at Christmas!)

Reflecting on this holiday and growing up without it in Australia, the only thing I could think of that remotely related were 'Coke Spiders'. They're called 'floats' here and I have no idea where the name 'spider ' comes from, maybe the 'spidery' bubbles that appear at the top?? Anyway, regardless, they are yum and I proudly introduced Levi to them yesterday (his first shot of caffeine!).

Heres a tip when you're needing to make a lot of ice cream balls.

Then when you're ready to serve, pop each spoot + ice cream ball into it's own glass.Coke Spiders by www.polkadotprints.com.au Coke Spiders by www.polkadotprints.com.au Coke Spiders by www.polkadotprints.com.au

They actually remind me of my pre-married life, when I would go out to 'coffee' with another non-coffee drinking friend of mine and we'd both order these with a garlic bread. Weird combo I know, but we loved them, and now it's a great memory!
Enjoy!

  3. You wouldn't happen to be talking about "coffee" dates with me would you....hahahaha? That was back before I drunk coffee, but thinking about it, I am so going to order that again...I LOVE coke spiders (& garlic bread)! And cute idea, pre-freezing the ice cream spoons, may just have to use that idea for Christmas!

  5. Thanks Emma & Carrie! The freezing definitely saves time (& mess!) when it comes to serving!

  6. Trish, you know it!! :) We might have to hit up the Coffee Club again for old times sake! Although if my memory serves me, I always got a Sprite version for some reason...
