Ice Cream Yummies.
As a kid, ice cream was one of my favorite treats. I remember coming home from school on a hot afternoon and sneaking a triple scoop of vanilla perched on cake cone, then eating it fast so it didn’t drip — or so I didn’t get caught over-indulging. Now as an official grown-up, managing over-indulgence seems necessary, but that doesn’t mean I have to give up those icy, creamy treats completely. Does it?IceCream_coneMy four favorite temptations…

1. Baskin Robbins “Gold Medal Ribbon” — My all time favorite, most wonderful of all wonderful frozen treats. B&R mixes vanilla and chocolate with a swirl of caramel ribbon deliciousness. Oh my, yes.


2. Ben & Jerry’s “Mint Chocolate Cookie” — Peppermint ice cream with chocolate sandwich cookies (bits of oreo cookie). Think frozen Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies in an ice cream. Squeee!


3. Haagen-Dazs “5” Vanilla Bean — I have no idea how 5 simple ingredients can taste so good, but HD makes this pint of perfection something special!


4. Friendly’s Classic Chocolate — Friendly’s isn’t available everywhere, but this chocolate treat wins tastes tastes over and over again. No glitz, extras or snazzy branding, just amazing creamy yumminess.


Psssst… there are cones right over there on the counter. You grab the scooper, I’ll dash to the freezer!
