So, a while back, I wrote about an incident which all of us mom bloggers have posted about at some time or another: the Wowmart grocery shopping experience. The highlight of that trip (no pun intended) was the woman waiting in the customer service line who had foil in her hair for a color treatment. Oh yes she did.
In that same post I happened to mention enjoying a certain brand of ice cream, “Blue Bunny.” Within a couple of days, I received a message from a Blue Bunny representative saying that the company would like to send me some coupons for free ice cream, if that was OK with me.
Almost immediately I replied, “Oh, no. That’s definitely not OK with me. Because if there’s one thing I don’t ever want, it’s dessert, particularly free dessert, especially free ice cream with chunks of heaven in it. Pleaseno, pleaseno, pleasedon’t.”
Despite my best Blanche DuBois protestations, I received a booklet of coupons for 12 free containers of Blue Bunny ice cream!
Do you realize that could mean one free carton per month per year? I know; I couldn’t quite fathom it at first, either, until I got out my calculator with the giant buttons.
Notice I said “that could mean,” which also means I could bring home more than one a month, if I so choose to give into short term gratification.
And I so choose. Oh, I SO choose!
Thus, I have already made one Bunny Tracks ice cream pie in an Oreo cookie crust for a small event. And I have already given one Homemade Turtle Sundae carton to my daughter.
Now I am just about to go get my third gallon as soon as I type this because I have to take yet another dessert somewhere tomorrow evening. I’m going for banana split ice cream in a graham cracker crust with strawberry topping.
As a famous rapper once said, “Woopdiddy!”
So now I have two questions for you:
1. Do you know any other good recipes (that transport well) featuring ice cream, like trifles?
2. Can you tell me why I’m gaining weight by the hour?
And, as luck would have it, I’m not done with ice cream yet. Next Sunday night, we’re having a 100 ft sundae in a rain gutter at Oneighty, as promoted below (click on gif). I just hope I can elbow all of those kids out of the way and show them how a real pro bellies up to the bar!
