It Takes All Kinds Of Ice-Cream .....

..... to please your palate. Now we all have favorites of course, but as they say, variety is the spice of life. I have several favorites, and several that I truly dislike. Let's start with the favorites. My most favorite is vanilla because it has the FREEDOM to slide over your lips and gently down your throat so you don't choke on the bits and pieces of flavouring that makes it more popular any other and because with imagination it can be complimented like no other with additions of other fun and tasty tidbits. My second favorite is rainbow, the kind that includes all DIFFERENT flavours joined in PEACE and harmony and making for a unique experience. Now the least favorites. I'm not a fan of TigerTail. The name alone makes me wary of being caught in a backtaste of 'ouch, that stung!" Having had the experience of it more than once though, I don't mind the Orange flavour, but the licorice is too OVERBEARING and seems bent on FORCING it's taste into the roots of my tastebuds, causing my mouth to pucker in distaste and rejection of it's MANIPULATION. But my least favorite of all is watermelon. To me it's a flavor that HIDES behind it's color, but because it comes from a large fruit, believes itself to have all the power and strength of size. Has no one told watermelons they are really 99% water! Water evaporates in the heat of the mouth and the flavor of watermelon ice cream is truly WEAK and leaves me disillusioned and frankly disgusted with it. I don't eat watermelon ice-cream, but I will if I have too! There you go..........my ice-cream discussion as promised. I hope you get the analogy. Now you all know the drill, so I don't have to ask the question.........

You've been here and I didn't know it Sparky! Blimey, my binoculars must need a polish. I am afraid that all sorts of TUTTI FRUITTI things happen her. Just as you think that something is MINT blow me if they don't blow you a RASPBERRY. It may all be frozen water of course, but this ought to be one place where LOLLY don't matter and words count. I've asked BEN & Jerry but they just said tell CHERRY GARCIA. No, I didn't understand that either. It's enough to make you PRALINES & CREAM!!

LOL, hey SomeCowgirl. I've had three discussions unfairly deleted over the last three days. I promised my friends who posted on them that if the third one got deleted, I'd write a discussion about ice-cream (Like who can object to THAT? lol) so they could get their points back. So here it is. Glad you got the analogy too.
