Tuesday, July 18, 2017 – I Scream; You Scream; We all Scream for Ice Cream
ICYMI – Last Sunday was National Ice Cream Day. I am not a huge fan of ice cream. Oreos are usually my go to ultra-indulgence. Health note: Eating an entire line of Oreos in one sitting tends to make you sick. But back to the ice cream.
Of course the ice cream must be Blue Bell. In Texas there is no other ice cream other than Blue Bell. The Presidential Bushes did not and do not export it from Texas and import it to Maine for trade reasons. It is so good the Aggies named their baseball stadium Blue Bell Park. A great flavor and a hefty donation will get most any thing.
Just prior to the national day of celebration, Blue Bell released their newest flavor – Sweet and Salty Crunch.
I give it One Scoop out of five. Maybe Two Scoops, but small scoops. It is a foo foo flavor that would be nice after a special meal. It would probably be better if Grand Mariner or Kalua was poured over it. Then why bother with the ice cream?
If you are looking for a good late-night, do not bother with a bowl, eat out of the tub, somebody hurt your feelings kinda of ice cream, one cannot beat BB vanilla and chocolate and especially when the flavors come together in The Great Divide. Five great big scoops!
At a distant second on my ice cream list is Dairy Queen. For those unfamiliar with dining in rural Texas Dairy Queen is the hot spot. On Sunday I celebrated ice cream day with a dipped cone. Notice cat on shirt and I have on same sunglasses. I love a coordinated outfit.
As for my dipped cone, it was most delicious even when the chocolate fell in my lap. Go have some ice cream today.
