A million and one things I was going to post about today. But I think I'll just talk about ice cream.
I have never been to a Cold Stone Creamery, but I read this today and found it to be hilarious. But is it true? You who have ventured there must enlighten me.
Ice Cream is pretty much my kryptonite. For several years I have refused to have it in the house. (At great personal sacrifice!) Our last apartment was 1/2 a block away from the first Sweet Occasions store which was downright dangerous. They serve a Wisconsin-made ice cream called Chocolate Shoppe that is hands down my favorite ever. (Beating all store brands including B&J!) They have the best combination of tasty high-butterfat ice cream with stuff inside that is the perfect size. Not such huge pieces that the ice cream becomes a mere binder for all the chunks inside, but not so small that they don't have a presence. They have several flavors that are so unusual but I have come to love such as 'Fat Elvis" (banana ice cream with chocolate bits and peanut butter- to DIE for!) and Snap-O-Lantern (pumpkin ice cream- tastes like pie!- with gingersnap bits).
Frozen Custard? For all of you who have never been to the American Midwest to try this delicacy I say, GET ON A PLANE, POST-HASTE! It is like ice cream only meltier and more fattening.
So on this Friday afternoon, where the sun is shining but it is still cold as a motherF, I must ask- what is your food kryptonite?
