We all scream for....
July is National Ice Cream Month. As you know, I don’t “do” months. Except when I do.
The Cowabunga Ice Cream People (not a nationality, a company) contacted me and reminded me that ice cream is darn tasty!
They make “designer” ice cream and frozen yogurt.
Ice cream is good for the economy—generating billions in sales from the yearly personal average of 23.2 quarts (almost twice that in the northern Central States—that would be the cold flyovers).
Ninety percent of households eat ice cream.
The most popular flavor is, of course, vanilla. Chocolate is next, then strawberry, chocolate chip (my fave, those waxy chips, love those), and then butter pecan.
The yummers first came to America in 1700. Dolley Madison served a strawberry ice cream thing at her husband’s second inaugural.
The cone came in the late 1800s-early 1900s.
Cowabunga has Cake Batter, Cookie Dough, Mint Chocolate Chip, and Coffee Espresso, to name a few.
And lookee here—they have Red Velvet yogurt. I just saw a commercial for Blue Bunny Red Velvet Ice Cream that looked good.
I am in a smackdown with my frozen food truck company—no ice cream is the result.
I might have to regroup.
For info—go to www.CowabungaIceCream.com. They send it. To the desert? Wouldn’t it be more like a milkshake?
And—no—I know what you are thinking—this is not low calorie. But it does have protein, right? Calcium? Something that’s OK?
