Frozen Fab Five from the RevGalPals

This week it's all about ice cream!

1. Ice cream: for warm weather only or a year-round food? Is this a joke? Ice cream could never be considered a seasonal food. It's the manna of my people!

2. Favorite flavor? B&R Chocolate andPeanut Butter or Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby.

3. Cake cone, sugar cone, waffle cone, cup? I could care less about the cone. I want the ice cream. Plus while you're goofing with the cone, your ice cream is in danger of melting or falling off. Who needs that kind of anxiety?

4. Childhood ice-cream memory? Going to B&R and having bubble gum ice cream and spitting out all the gum so that I could chew it all at once. Also, my parents got engaged at the Dairy Queen. I'm telling you, ice cream is key to my heritage!

5. Banana splits: discuss. Bananas should mind their own business and stay on the cereal where they belong. Or they should quietly turn brown before being made into banana bread. I do not need them in my ice cream.

Bonus from the RevGal List Maker: Baskin-Robbins used to make ice-cream sodas. During the 18 months I worked there, I think I made about 3 tops. They're no longer on the menu, but you can still order them. Question: What are the ingredients/steps for making an ice cream soda? Tall glass, pour in syrup, add ice cream followed by seltzer.

Immediately following our wedding, on the way to the reception, DH's sister drove us to the DQ, site of one of our first dates and where we got a delight before proceeding to the reception!

P.S. (an after-thought) said...

Oh that reminds me of our first anniversary. We went to Bridgeman's Icecream parlor (a chain in those days) and got the famous LaLaPaloosa Sunday, which was even bigger than you can imagine. Well, you do have to like all those flavors mixing. so :-) and :-(

Oh, I haven't thought of Bridgeman's in ages. We used to go to the one in Northfield when we visited my grandparents. Yummy

Wow...just surfin the bogs and I find all my favs. First beer, then pizza, and now ice cream!

My favorite ice cream memory occurred quite a while ago, my dad took us to a B&R in Plymouth, Michigan and I had my first taste of Baseball Nut! Over thirty years later and it is still my very favorite!
