Ice Cream Dreams

July 7, 2009

My hubs went to Kings Island recently one day when he was off work. What was my first reaction? And I mean STRONG reaction???

“YOU BETTER EAT SOME OF THAT BLUE ICE CREAM FOR ME!!!”

This is it in a bowl. Not as good as a cone.

Anyone who has been to Kings Island surely knows about the blue ice cream. It used to be near the Smurf’s in Hanna-Barbera land. You can get this delicious blue soft serve in a cup or cone, and with or without sprinkles. You could even get it swirled with vanilla ice cream. My standard in my ice-cream-eating days was blue ice cream in a cone with sprinkles. Brings back memories of the Beast and that whirly-do thing that was next to the Racers that would start spinning on the ground, then start spinning you upside down. Don’t think they have it anymore.

Anyway, I never knew the actual flavor of the blue ice cream, but I knew it was delicious and refreshing on a hot summer day full of drops and dizziness. Ever since hubs said he was going to go, all I could think about was the damn blue ice cream.

When he went, he was a good hubs and sought out the blue stuff, but he got it without sprinkles, which is just plain wrong. He didn’t get the allure, so I have now certified him crazy.

Could blue ice cream be another reason I’m fat? Not likely since I haven’t had it in over 8 years, but it does count as one of my many “oh-my-god-I’m-going-to-kill-somoene-if-I-don’t-get-it” food items.

I think Skinny Emmie can still enjoy blue ice cream with sprinkles, don’t you? ;)

    I know exactly what you are talking about! What WAS that flavor? So distinct. And, yes, I think all of us should have a little blue ice cream once in a while!
