The History of Ice Cream

By | source: Aug 3rd, 2010

I’ve been consuming ice cream for as long as I can remember. I also loved root beer when I was young, and a root beer float was the greatest thing that has ever graced my taste buds. Although you may think ice cream isn’t healthy, it isn’t all bad. Because it is so cold your body expends calories to warm it up. Too bad it isn’t enough, an ice cream only diet would rock.

I worked at Marble Slab Creamery for a year and I’ve learned about some of the best flavors that exist. I’ll rank my top 3 favorite flavors for you if you ever end up at The Slab.

1. Coconut – Like a blast of AC when you walk into a store on a hot day, and an awesome texture when mixed with strawberries.
2. Black Cherry – Creamy, the perfect balance of sweet and tangy mix in cherries.
3. Butter Pecan – Very rich, refined pecan taste

Popsicles, I don’t understand them. Why don’t we just call them sticky-hands. I know it is nice to eat ice cream with one hand, but when your popsicle situation goes south and you can’t catch all the melted sugary goodness, you may have second thoughts. The jokes on the popsicle sticks also need improvement. They may have Laffy Taffy beat, but there’s room for improvement.

A skunk just sprayed out by my air-conditioning unit. I am not sure how much longer I can continue writing. I must go now and try to battle the stench. Ice cream doesn’t even sound appealing anymore. [Via]
