Well, it’s been another crazy week here and I haven’t even had a chance to crack open any scents, new or old. One of the things I was able to indulge in was some ice cream, which was wonderful in the unseasonably humid heat. I love ice cream, but don’t eat a lot of it. I used to get a cone every once in a while at the Thrifty Drug store on Canon Drive after going to yoga class with my friend Marietta. Mint Chip was the default, end even now I will stop in and grab some. When I lived in New York, I used to stop at the Haagen Dazs on Christopher Street to have some cookies and cream, then only available in the boutiques, and still a favorite. Does anyone remember the brief competitor to Haagen Dazs, called Frusen Gladje? I also used to go somewhat regularly to the Ben and Jerry’s on Main Street in Santa Monica, but fell out of the habit since it’s such a trek.
But every once in a while I get the yen. Early in the week I had a sudden passion for a quart of Rum Raisin, and happily found it was even on sale. It’s still just as satisfying for me as it was back in the 80’s when I’d buy it at the corner market, and, g-d help me, eat it for dinner.
So what’s your favorite flavor? Let us know in the comments..
