How do you eat ice cream?
As much as I love ice-cream, I hate all the decision-making involved. The first dilemma that I face is: cup or cone? When fresh waffle cones are available that’s hardly a hard choice. But when you are faced with waffle cones dipped in chocolate, waffle cones dipped in dark chocolate, or dipped in chocolate then covered with nuts…? Oh I just cry. Inside.
So you’ve jumped the first hurdle and you quickly blurted your answer. Now you really have to decide: fruity or chocolatey?
Why? Because they are not to be mixed, good people. You’re either in the mood for a light lemon sorbet or a rich mocha choca. Please do not get a scoop of raspberry ripple with a scoop of good old-fashioned cookies n’ cream. I should not have to explain this but they do not go together! [I am the Queen of Ice-Cream Land and my words shall reign.]
Once you’ve crossed every bridge and you have your ice-cream in hand, you now have to make the ultimate, life-changing decision. To eat your ice-cream slowly or to let it melt a bit?
I guess you don’t have a choice with a cone in hand but when you have two or three scoops (that was not me confessing) of different enticing flavors all sitting happily in a cup… what do you do?! Do you wait for them to get all meltedy and swirly? Do you take a tiny spoonful of each flavor and alternate flavors? Or do you finish one scoop and get started on the other? Am I the only one who turns my ice-cream experience into an epic tale with dragon slayers and queens?
