I spent National Ice Cream Day doing everything you’re supposed to do on a perfect July summer Sunday: hanging at the pool, grilling some amazing chicken thighs and topping it off with a sweet treat, all in the company of good friends.
And when you’re already so comfortable poolside, why leave to go get ice cream? So, for once, we brought the ice cream with us and scooped some cones to enjoy under the setting sun. It can, however, be quite the chore getting a large group of people to agree on what flavor(s) to get. For mass appeal, we ended up getting two, Breyer’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Mint Chocolate Chip. If you know anything about me by now, you know which one I was behind (hint, it was the cookie dough).
I do have to caveat, though, that I am itching to try the new Betty Rae’s Ice Cream flavor, Joe’s KC Burnt Ends & Sauce, not just as a Joe’s employee but also as a lover of both of those things. I also feel like it would pair nicely with their homemade waffle cones. After it’s debut today, they will continue to scoop the flavor for at least a month. I’m hoping to get over there to try it sometime this week. Have you had the chance to try it yet? If so, what’s the verdict?
