Wouldn’t you know it, we were overcome with excitement during the last day of National Ice Cream Month yesterday that we forgot to post our last reader-written Ice Cream Journal entry. So we’ll post it today (with apologies to the authors for our tardiness). For this one, we asked our authors to find the most mouthwatering ice cream photo they could and describe it. And wouldn’t you know it, two of the writers to whom we offered that task came up with the exact same photo! So we’re posting that photo and BOTH entries here today to close out our National Ice Cream Month celebration.
This photo was submitted by Bob K. of Olney, MD and Chris B. of New London, MO. Thanks for the pic, guys, and thanks for ending National Ice Cream Month on a delicious note!
BOB WROTE: Wouldn’t you like to receive this on a special occasion? A bouquet of six ice cream cones that contain your favorite flavors. I am not sure how it would be delivered (hopefully in something to keep it frozen). To Turkey Hill lovers this would be better than a dozen of any kind of flowers. Would you finish them all at once or eat one now and save the rest for later? The choice is yours. Enjoy the picture and dream of what could be.
CHRIS WROTE: Ah, summertime…memories of family times at the pool, at the zoo, at the park…and at the local ice cream shop!! As a child, I grew up in a small town without an ice cream parlor, but I remember sitting on the front porch with my grandfather, eating ice cream and watching the lightning bugs in the front yard. There are certain things that I HAVE to do with my boys during the summer, and a few (dozen) trips out for ice cream is on that list! This picture, of the ice cream cones tied together with a red ribbon represents a couple of things for me. 1) The gift of delicious ice cream!! and 2) The gift of great family memories for my family! I LOVE that there is Mint Chocolate Chip in the center, because that’s one of my favorite ice cream flavors!!
