In this time of economic hardship, we are trying to cut back on some of our luxuries, such as US Magazine and cat food. NO! I’m kidding. I can’t live without US Magazine. The cats, however, can live on table scraps and dust bunnies.
Recently Dave challenged me on my purchase of Haagen Dazsxzsszzzzs ice cream.
“If you must buy ice cream, can’t you buy the cheap kind?”
Oh, Dave. You so crazy. He doesn’t understand. I don’t buy HD because it’s expensive but because only HD makes the flavor I love: Caramel Cone.
(Yes, Ben & Jerry’s makes a similar kind but it’s not as good.)
Caramel Cone, like all the HD ice creams, conveniently comes in its own bowl, by which I mean a pint container. I try not to eat the whole pint, but I usually do. On those occasions when I think I’m going to be able to resist, I’m literally putting away the ice cream with my head in the freezer, taking one last bite . . . no, just one more . . . one more (slams freezer door on neck mid-bite).
Altho I love my Caramel Cone, I still weep alone in my closet every night for Baskin Robbins’ retired “S’mores.” A light chocolate ice cream stuffed with chunks of graham cracker and swirled with a marshmallow ribbon. You guys! it was SO GOOD!
But there is a dark side to ice cream.
- avocado-macapuno—avocado ice cream with coconut
- queso—vanilla ice cream with Kraft cheese pieces
- maíz—vanilla ice cream with sweet corn
- donut ‘n cream—”a rich creamy ice cream with famous donut pieces”
Avocado? Cheese? Corn? Famous donuts? This isn’t ice cream, this is anarchy!
So . . . what’s your favorite ice cream flavor? What’s the weirdest ice cream you ever ate? And, no, I will not share my Caramel Cone with you.
