And the Winner Is...Ice Cream

There is no contest on my favorite food. It's definitely ice cream and has been for decades. Maybe it started with toddler carriage rides to the drugstore with the reward of a Dixie Cup or all of those childhood summer nights waiting for the Good Humor truck. Maybe it's just genetic, but it's hard to my envision life without ice cream. It's been a battle for years about keeping ice cream in the freezer. I eat it and a pint -- let alone a half gallon -- is gone before very much time goes by. It's delicious, but not the way I can eat very often.


When Skinny Cow came out with individual cups of low-fat ice cream that were really tasty, it was literally an answer to prayer. And when I got invited to a Skinny Cow event on Saturday afternoon past -- I cleared my calendar. Ice cream, snacks, door prizes and a goody bag, what a great afternoon!

We got to pick our favorite flavor. I went with caramel cone.

Ice cream, snacks, a D.J. and makeovers for lucky raffle winners. I was one of the lucky raffle winners and came home with an adorable pink MP3 player. 

It was a fun, fun afternoon. Skinny Cow, count me in for next year!

And because inquiring minds want to know, what's your favorite ice cream flavor?

I am as bad as you, Carol ... I could eat ice cream 24/7. My favorite flavor is peanut butter anything & chocolate a second runner. We only buy it when it is $2.99 or less & stock up ...

Congrats on your win ... & a PINK MP3. How fabulous! Glad you had a grand time.

Oh, how I remember those orange & vanilla dixie cups ... & the little wood spoon. Mouth watering ...

Have a lovely week ~
TTFN ~
Hugs & love,
Marydon

Cherry Vanilla for my vote. I won an ice cream party for my neighbors a few years back. Two parties as a matter of fact. It was a prize from Edy's Ice Cream.

Wish we had a 'Skinny Cow "Just love ice cream,any flavour. Pity is so fattening. On reflection Rum and Raisin

Pistachio for me (with coffee as a close second). Shop Rite has Friendly's Ice-cream on sale for $1.88 and I wanted to fill my freezer. I didn't only because there are already four containers there.

My hope is that they will be gone before the sale ends so I can buy more (hehe)

Hi Carol Sweetie...
WOW a free ice cream and a pink MP3 player. You were so darn lucky. Congratulations. Looks like it was alot of fun. Love the pink colors floating around.

I don't think we have Skinny Cow out here. I haven't heard of that before.

My favorite, cherries jubilee of course. Anything with cherries I LOVE it. Don't even need a cone, just a small bowl is enough of a treat for me.

What a your Happy 4th plans for New York? I am sure they do it up big time there.

Have a beautiful week sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Congratulations - so tell me - was the ice cream good?

Chocolate!

Ms Sparrow said...

Ice cream is my downfall. Sometimes I eat it twice a day! I like any flavor as long as it has a little bit of chocolate mixed in.

Ms Sparrow said...

Maybe I can never get enough ice cream because when I was a kid, I only got ice cream when my folks bought 2 pints. They shared one and the other was divided in four thin slices for us kids. When we had visitors for occasions, we'd have an entire gallon and I'd be in hog heaven!

Carol said...

Icecream is my BIGGEST weakness! Congratulations on the PINK MP3, you rock!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I am a coffee ice cream fan closely followed by chocolate chip mint ice cream. Plain ole vanilla ice cream works too! LOL! Gla dyou were able to attend this fun event!

Sharon said...

Any combination of cherry, chocolate and nuts! Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia is a perfect example!

Connie Arnold said...

How fun! Congratulations on your win. My favorite is homemade peach ice cream.

Lynda said...

Strawberry would have to be my favorite but I do love plain ole vanilla, too! Fortunately, I am able to be satisfied with very little of it. However, my husband has difficulty restraining his appetite - - - so we don't buy half gallons any more - - - just the half-size frozen treats on a stick.
