Today’s topic is: “The third Sunday in July is National Ice Cream Day. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?”
I know, I’m a little behind the times. This was supposed to be published yesterday, but I got all caught up with talking about accessories. So I hereby (unofficially) extend National Ice Cream Day to include today. After all, as far as many people are concerned, ice cream should be celebrated every day!
Like many things, my favorite ice cream flavor has changed over time.
When I was in high school, I loved Rocky Road. Remember when my stepfather took us to “Act II at the Opera” while on vacation near Lake Tahoe? That was during my Rocky Road phase.
Shortly after that, I was a sucker for Mint Chocolate Chip, until I discovered Mint Chocolate Cookie (with chunks of Oreos instead of chocolate chips).
Today, my favorite vacillates between Cookies & Cream and just about any form of Chocolate. Last Monday during our mid-afternoon date, my husband bought me a scoop of Chocolate with Toasted Almonds. It was delightful!
The one thing that hasn’t changed is my eternal love of ice cream sandwiches. Here’s a picture of me from long, long ago. I especially love how I’m daintily lifting my grubby little pinky finger, as if formally sipping a cup of tea or something. “Manners first, manners always” I suppose.
Share your favorite flavor in the comments.
