I LOVE ICE CREAM

I am not stretching the truth with this statement in the slightest: Texas has some of the best ice cream I've ever eaten in my life. I guess it makes sense that a place that has a temperature in the mid-80's in the second weekend of November would have such a cool, tasty treat. With Blue Bell Ice cream, I'm in frozen dessert heaven.

Blue Bell's website says that their's is the "best ice cream in the country," and I don't doubt that for a second. It kind of pains me to say this, but I think it may be better than Whitey's. At least when purchased at the store. Every flavor I've had from them has just been phenomenal. This include chocolate chip cookie dough, cookies & cream, anniversary cake, chocolate brownie overload (which had walnuts, whipped cream, and brownie chunks in chocolate ice cream. Usually I'm not a huge fan of the ice cream with the brownies already in it, but these were perfect), pecan praline, and hot fudge sundae. Yes, I've eaten a lot of it in the month-and-a-half that I've been down here. There's only been about a week when we haven't had a half-gallon in our freezer. Right now we have 2. I could be in the worst mood ever, eat a bowl of Blue Bell, and instantly have a smile on my face. This ice cream could cause world peace. And I totally believe that.

In summation, this ice cream fucking rocks. When you come to visit me (and I expect everyone reading this to visit), I will buy us a half-gallon, and we will share it, and you will know true happiness.

cap'n - no, I'm doing pretty well with a workout routine, so no pants have needed to be let out. And I haven't make the trek to Lampasas yet, once I get some money, that'll be high on my list.

erin - I knew that would do it!

hannita - Oh, it's so much more than a fetish. . .

Can I pick the flavor? Can I???

I'm not a HUGE ice cream freak, but I could seriously eat an entire pint of Haagen Dazs vanilla swiss almond in one sitting.

Oh, I do miss a few things from Texas...

When I was a wee, I partook in Braums peppermint ice cream quite frequently. It had little sparkles of red and green crunched up peppermints. God, it was good.

Give it a whirl if you find yourself able!
