But I don't just love ice cream because it is delicious, I also have so many sweet (pun intended) memories associated with it. These are a few of them....
Working in an ice cream shop with all of my best friends in high school definitely made for some great memories...work is always better when you are surrounded by people you would love to be with outside of work too. I also made some new and life long friends while working there....yes, I'm talking specifically about you J! - Favourite customer turned friend hands down! :)
Ice cream dates...there is something so adorably romantic about sharing an ice cream cone with your sweetheart. Jared and I have been on many ice cream dates together.
The ice cream man....I remember summer's at my grandpa's in Florida and getting so excited when we heard that musical truck coming down the street. I always got the ice cream bar shaped like a ninja turtle with bubble gum eyes.(You didn't know my love for ninja turtles was so deep, did you?)
Birthdays...after working at Baskin Robbins and discovering their dangerously good Turtle Pie, I requested it as my birthday cake nearly every year. It was a cookie crumb crust, praline and cream ice cream and topped with caramel sauce and whipped cream. I had a lot of sweet birthdays! :)
Here are some of my favourite ice cream treats:
Pralines and Cream in a waffle cone
Piña Colada Ice Cream
Reese's Cup Blizzard
Pumpkin Ice Cream
Mint Chocolate Chip Shake
Baskin Robbins Cappuccino Blast
White Chocolate FrozenYogurt with Gummy Bears
(to satisfy the 8-year-old in me)
