I'm an Ice Cream Snob

If you're going to eat it...it had better be worth the calories. That means "only the hard stuff" for me. Rich, high-fat, hard enough you can chew, with lots of chunks. That's right. Usually that means Ben and Jerry's. Because it is soooo good and filling that a 1/2 cup is usually enough.

My favorite flavor is "Everything But The..."
It used to be S.N.A.F.U. but they stopped making it. I have no idea why. It now rests with other retired flavors in Ben and Jerry's Flavor Graveyard (an actual place on a hill just by the Ben and Jerry's factory in Vermont). Yes, I have even been there. I'm serious about my ice cream.
Anyway, it's pretty funny: they write poems about the flavors that didn't make it. They have a virtual graveyard at www.benandjerrys.com/fun/halloween

I proudly wear my Ben and Jerry's apron when I cook. It's only fair to support the ice cream that calms down hormones, cramps and just makes life seem better when you're feeling down.
