in 1903 the ice cream cone was invented. Although it is officially fall, it
is still warm enough to enjoy your favorite ice cream. Even if you don’t allow
yourself to have ice cream or enjoy it, I think once a year someone should have one, at least a little one. Ice cream is just one of those things
that remind you of being a child, and seem to flashback happy times. Whenever I
eat ice cream, I think of summer at my grandma’s house with my cousins, eating
ice cream in the hot tub, and having our dog, Tubbs, always trying to sneak a
lick. Who doesn’t want to eat things that make us happy, but as with all good
things, we must remember not to eat too much!
way to cut back on the ice cream is to eat a healthier version. Frozen yogurt
is a great way to enjoy ice cream without as much fat, even try a simple flavor
and add fresh berries to the mix. Another great alternative is trying rice
cream or tofu ice cream, I swear they are delicious. I used to be vegan, and
would constantly eat these tofu ice cream sandwiches, called tofutti’s. I no
longer eat a lot of my old vegan diet, but I have to admit I still love these
sandwiches, especially the mint. A fast alternative to a healthy choice is just
taking yogurt and placing it in the freezer, and you can add anything to it to
make it a tasty treat.
trying to have healthy alternatives doesn’t work, you can always try these
weird choices, and they could possibly be put off of ice cream forever, or
perhaps find a new favorite flavor. There are some popular flavors in Japan
that I would call interesting, such as fish, squid, and octopus flavored, and
there seems to be a seafood pattern, I really can’t find a ice cream that isn’t
made from the sea (shrimp, whale, eel, etc.). There is also chicken wing ice
cream, which I think I would love to try, maybe with a sweetened hot wing
sauce. I think curiosity always gets to me when it comes crazy flavors; I just
have to try them. There is also deep-sea water ice cream, and honestly, with
some caramel, I think it has delicious potential. Lastly, my personal favorite,
the natural Viagra ice cream, actual flavored not mentioned. It makes me wonder
what it is made of and how popular it is. Still interested, check out the
some delicious ice cream of your own.
