I have a confession, friends.
I love ice cream. As in, I could eat it every day (and sometimes do), can't imagine life without it, indulge on the good stuff on principle, in love with ice cream. I just can't help it! I even order root beer floats without the root beer.
Anything cold, really, has my attention. Frozen bananas, gelato, even peas. In the summer, sometimes my only meal of the day consists of a giant bowl of fro-yo with fruit.
The line is drawn at sorbet, though. Who does it think it's kidding? Honestly, big faker.
Since I don't have access to my favorite treat Annie's Organic Pure Delight, my sweet, creamy, cold indulgence lies in the pint-sized cartons put out by those two rogue boys Ben and Jerry. Their many different, sometimes odd, combinations provide me with happiness unmatched. As ice cream goes, that is. There's always the old stand-by's of Dublin Mudslide, Coffee Heath Bar Crunch and Cherry Garcia. Then my faves: Berry Voluntary; John Lennon's Imagine Whirled Peace; Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler.
Then things get really strange. Jimmy Fallon's Late Night Snack: vanilla bean ice cream with a salty caramel swirl & fudge covered potato chip clusters. Trust me on this. It's delicious.
Lately my ice cream cravings surface daily. Daily, people. It's becoming a real issue! All I want to eat all day is icy-creamy-ice-cream.
In fact, I may go have some now.
What are your favorite ice cream treats or flavors?
