Best Thing I Ever Ate - Ice Cream

Have you seen that show on the Food Network called 'Best Thing I Ever Ate'? If you haven't, then basically all this show does, is have different 'foodies' on there that talk about their favorite things to eat. They have different 'categories' for each episode, and some times I like it, sometimes I don't. I guess it just depends on what their eating... and who's eating it. (some of those people really bug me)

Anyway, if I were to do an episode on ice cream, I would have more than one flavor. I can't help it. I love many different ones. An old standby is Mint Chocolate Chip from Baskin Robbins. I tell you, I haven't found a better one. I LOVE the 'flecks' of chocolate vs the 'chunks' that some other brands use. Ask Bob... if it has chunks, I won't eat it. 

Well, I just happened to stumble upon a new flavor at Baskin Robbins that I completely adore. It takes me back to when I was first married and living in Connecticut. There's a restaurant/ice cream chain that is really popular back there - Friendly's. Anyway, in stores you can buy Friendly's Watermelon Roll. It was heavenly. A watermelon and lemon (? I think...) sherbet that was shaped like a slice of watermelon, and it had little chocolate 'seeds' on the inside. I thought I had discovered and tasted some magical food from the gods... it really was that good. 

So, imagine my delight when Bob brought home 'Watermelon Ice' from Baskin Robbins. (Unfortunately, he had made the detrimental mistake of only bringing himself a scoop of that  wonderful goodness, but fortunately we were able to work through it and now we have an 'understanding'). This watermelon sherbet comes complete with the chocolate seeds, and makes me super happy when it enters my mouth. 

So what are you waiting for?
