Ice Cream

The first time I remember eating ice cream was when I was 6 or 7. My grandma bought one of those buckets of Nepolitan or whatever you call it. It was like a buck-twentyfive back then and I remember eating all of the chocolate, some of the strawberry, and never ever touching the vanilla. Heh.

I never really cared for ice cream sandwhiches. They just taste so nasty to me. However, back when I stayed in Givhans their were only two gas stations and they were a good 10 miles from my house. One of them had this sandwhich that had chocolate chips in it. It was SO good...I used to go there every Sunday after church just to get two of those things. Mmm. I wonder if they still make them?

Variety was never really noticed by me until age 12. I was riding with my aunt to get some groceries, and we stopped at this gas station in Jedberg. I was hungry so she told me I could get anything I wanted. I looked in the ice cream section and noticed they had some Ben and Jerry Choc Chip Cookie Dough. Around the holidays, my grandma would buy the Pillsbury festive cookies. Although she wouldn't be able to cook much because I would eat the dough. Sweet uncooked goodness.

Anyway, I figured what the hell, it can't be that bad. Let me tell you something. When I got home and tryed it, I ate it all in one sitting. I couldn't help myself, it was that good. After that I made it a point to always have a money to buy that certain ice cream.

Now I've tried different kinds. Don't too much care for generic brands. Pet is okay with me but not my favorite. Mayfield is kinda overated in my opinion. Edy's is alright but it just tastes weird to me. Breyers I like because of their crazy variety. Who in their right mind would make a Spongebob Squarepants and Dora the Explorer ice cream....granted their really good tasting ice cream and I'm not even a fan of the shows. And of course I will always love Ben and Jerry. Those two hippies know how to make something sweet, definately.

Snackwise, I love Snicker bars. I think I have John to thank for that since he always buys a box of them during the summer. The Chocolate Eclair, and Strawberry Shortcake bars are also a classic fave of mine. Shit, I remember when they first premiered in 94. I got one after my graduation ceremony from 4th grade. Nothing like a choco boost after standing infront of millions of adults you don't know.

Favorites? Choc. Chip Cookie Dough is always number 1 in my book. The Oreo ice cream is a good second. Followed by the Reese's ice cream. Then finish it off with French Vanilla. Melts in my mouth and not in my hand....hopefully. Then I just have sticky hands...and that would suck.
