Karen: Last week my illustrious collaborator put up the image of an ice cream truck. That got me thinking. Summer was always a great time for ice cream. And there were so many great pre-packaged ice cream or frozen treats. I used to love the little sundaes in a cup with a ribbon of fudge swirled through them. A bonus -they came with their own funky wooden spoon! 50/50 bars, Push-Ups, Drumsticks, Eskimo pies, ice cream sandwiches - let's talk about what your favorite ice-cold treat was!
Heck, if you want to also tell us your current fave, that's fine too. When I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area many years ago, I fell in love with the It's-It sandwich. Oh man...I miss the Bay Area for those alone!
