I have always been a fan of ice cream, but even more than ice cream, I have always been a fan of cream. Growing up, I used to steal my mom's extra coffee creamers and drink them straight, and even today, around Thanksgiving and Christmas, my dessert of choice is really more homemade whipped cream with a dollop of pie than anything else. And I think this is why I love Haagen Dazs ice cream. The ingredients are really simple, and more than most other ice creams, you can really taste the rich cream. I chose strawberry to share with you because it's my second favorite (first would be pineapple coconut) but comes in my favorite size: cup. This is a tiny little serving and is the perfect thing to buy for a treat because one or two bites is all you manage when it has to last you all week. It would be way too easy to go overboard on a pint of pineapple-coconut!
Choosing my favorite frozen treat was a bit difficult for me because, well, I love ice cream. I think my all time favorite will always be a twist in a cone with rainbow sprinkles but because I can't buy that in the freezer section of the grocery store I went with the next best thing. Have you tried Ben & Jerry's new Core ice creams?
The 'That's My Jam' flavor is literally my new jam. Raspberry & chocolate ice cream with raspberry jam down the middle - delicious perfection.
Love this sweet photo of four-year-old Tommy loving his ice cream cone. This photo was taken about a month before Annabel was born - when I was in my "eat-an-ice-cream-cone-every-day" phase of pregnancy :) Needless to say, Tommy really enjoyed that month!
