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.
