I SCREAM....YOU SCREAM...WE ALL SCREAM FOR....

ICE CREAM!

It's NATIONAL ICE CREAM DAY!!!

visit www.bluebell.com
They make the BEST store-bought ice cream!

Have you ever craved something so badly that your teeth ached...your head ached...you could almost TASTE it? Share your story...

Here's mine:
When MacDaddy and I were househunting in Philadelphia...some 30 years ago...every store in downtown Philly had photographs of huge cones of strawberry ice cream. My visual sense was tantalized and my taste buds followed. Oh, how I wanted a cone...or even just a spoonful...of strawberry ice cream.  BUT...we could not find a single store that sold strawberry ice cream!!! Not even the ice cream store!!! (They were out...) I cannot tell you how many places MD and I visited...  I was in TEARS!!! (of course, I was newly pregnant!)

After apologizing to me over and over again, MD finally called room service at our hotel to ask for this delectable treat...A single scoop of strawberry was found in the back of the freezer and delivered to our room (for a VERY HIGH PRICE, I might add). It was covered in ice crystals...and had a "freezer burn" taste...but oh my, that was the best strawberry ice cream I ever ate! (Actually, the ice cream was not very good, but it was exactly what  this pregnant mama wanted.)

To this day...I LOVE STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM!!! 

Hmmmmm.....I have all the ingredients....I think I'll go make some.
See ya!

You have a way with your stories...you make me ALWAYS wish I could be in the town or restaurant you're describing lol. :) I LOVED bubble gum ice cream as a little girl. I don't see it anymore.
