National Ice Cream Day

Today, Sisters and Brothers, is another "National Ice Cream Day" of which there appear to be several different days associated with.  Considering this is "National Ice Cream Month" I'm not sure why we need a particular day to mark this frozen treat or why the month didn't start off on this day.

Your Chocolate Priestess was planning to do a Special Sacramental Review of an ice cream maker and company sent her today but yesterday before I started mixing the ingredients I very wisely checked to make sure it would mix by following the directions and putting in brand new batteries.  It didn't work.  Upon closer inspection it appears the contacts inside the device are bent, possibly the wiring may be damaged as well.  I let the company know and we'll see if they do anything about it.

Instead let me share this image and item from Bruster's Ice Cream which has a brand near us.  I got a waffle bowl and was informed by the clerk that it came with three scoops of ice cream -- it would have been wonderful if that information has been on the menu at the kiosk itself.  From the bottom to the top, the flavors I ordered were Chocolate with Hershey's Special Dark, Chocolate, Cookie Dough with Tollhouse cookie dough.  I really love how the clerk stacked them from darkest, most chocolate to the lightest, least chocolate.  If I'd been smart I would have not gotten the waffle bowl itself and save a few hundred calories. I was just so disappointed by the ice cream maker not working that I over did it.

So how did you enjoy ice cream this weekend?  Are you planning on honoring this fun holiday and having ice cream today?

Great post. Love ice-cream, especially chocolate. I'm now a follower.

Welcome aboard, Moogie! Let me know which of the three choices to follow that you picked. When we do giveaways and contests I check those before putting a person into the pool for a winner.

I really wish that ice cream maker would have worked though, that's really what I wanted to review today for you all.

Oh...so disappointing about the ice cream maker not working! Mmm - the picture of the ice cream is befitting being that it's so warm right now. =)

TheChocolatePriestess said...

Yeah, TeenieCakes. I hope the company can send me a working one so I can review it. It's crazy hot and humid where I am. I keeping thinking about the city facts we got before we moved here that claimed it got 90+ only 6 days a year. I'm sure we are well over a dozen by now and the forecast for the next five days includes four of 90+.

Guess the only way: eat ice cream! This is a holiday everyone should be celebrating.

Good choice, Belinda, and thanks for commenting and reading. I hope someone out there has an ice cream machine and got to make homemade ice cream today.

Well, I was going to celebrate this weekend by going to my favorite ice cream place up in Michigan where I was visiting. However, the dairy is now closed. :( So we punted and went to DQ where I splurged big time and had a chocolate covered strawberry waffle bowl sundae. Yum!

An entire dairy is closed? Oh, my goodness!

I did not know about this day!! Next year then! Sorry to hear about your ice cream maker - hate it when that happens!

I love the flavour selection. I'd rather have four scoops and forgo the waffle ;)

TheChocolatePriestess said...

Ah, Denise, I should have thought of that!
