My Favorite Ice Cream

Is Friendly's Butter Crunch. There is no Friendly's in Manhattan, because it's a Mass-based joint, but we stopped at one after dinner in New Hampshire (Taco Bell), on our way up to Vermont.

I've got one word for you.


The funny thing was, I got a small in a ghetto cone/wafer cone (not a huge fan of sugar cones) and it wasn't a very small small. So, I asked for a cup and a spoon just in case I had to plonk it in there. It was a hot night, and I was afraid it'd melt before I ate it all.

Turns out that wasn't a problem, and therefore I saw no use for the cup and spoon. So I tapped on the take out window and the girl pulled it up, and I said, "Hi, I didn't use this cup or spoon. Could you take it back?" and she goes, "Oh, no, don't worry about it, we have plenty."

Yes, kid, I realize you have shitloads of inventory, that's not the point. I had a tough time throwing out a styrofoam cup and plastic spoon I didn't use, so my sister's boyfriend suggested we take it up to the house with us and use it a few times so I didn't feel so bad.

When we got there and popped open a bottle of champagne, I used it as my glass. The next day I ate some apple sauce in it.

Ok, so I'm acting like an old person. Fuck off. I'm saving your environment one cup and spoon at at time. I can't explain the applesauce. I just likes what I likes.

i go for the choc chip cookie dough with chocolate sauce so that i can pretend that it's actually chocolate ice cream with cookie dough chunks because duh, why haven't any of the major ice cream labels come up with that one? it's my dream.

anne, i hear you on the cup and spoon business. a few weeks ago, i went to safeway and they instantly put my grocery item in a bag. i said, oh i don't need the bag--please save it for someone else. she starts putting the bag in the trash and i say, "no, i didn't want it so you could USE it for someone else. that defeats the purpose." she looked at me like i'd just tried to explain the meaning of life in metaphysical terms.

Liz said...

oh and then she kept the bag in the trash.

anne altman said...

LOL, oh, liz. what ever will we do?

of COURSE she put the bag in the trash. it was USED.

mmmmmmmmm, Ice cream!!! Can't wait until Denver when I can actually HAVE SOME! Considering, right now, it's not in my "eating better" plans.

Ahh, and thanks for the compliment on my blog. I love pink! :)

there's friendly's in jersey, right over the GWB. there's a bus from port authority that passes right by it.

personally, i go for the fried clam platter and a root beer float with chocolate ice cream.
