Junk Food Guy Seeking: Blue Bell Strawberry Banana Pound Cake Ice Cream & Happy Memorial Day (Plus a Brief Childhood Memory)
Junk Food Nation, I’m back from a lovely wedding in Miami, and it’s Memorial Day. Thanks to all who fought to give us the freedoms we have today here in the United States. It is because of those who sacrificed that we are able to walk freely in the streets, have free elections, and do silly things like write a blog about junk food.
While I was in Miami, I saw this at a Walgreens convenience store: Blue Bell Strawberry Banana Pound Cake Ice Cream!
Blue Bell Strawberry Banana Pound Cake Ice Cream is made by Blue Bell, a southern state based ice cream company, which means is I ever want to see this again, I’ll have to head South. Which I may have to do. Pound cake ice cream with strawberries and banana that ISN’T some effed up contraption made at Cold Stone Creamery??? Sign me up! Of course, I was on a tight wedding schedule while in Florida, so I didn’t get a chance to try this – if you’re from the South and have tasted this, please let me know how it is in the comments below!
Seeing this ice cream reminded me of how when I was a kid, my mom used to put a huge hunk of ice cream between two whopping slices of pound cake – our own makeshift ice cream sandwiches (and much better than the paper wrapped versions, I might add). I wonder how pound cake ice cream would taste inside pound cake slices? Hmmmmm.
Back to normal posts tomorrow. Happy Memorial Day everyone! Today marks the unofficial start of summer 🙂
Sincerely, Junk Food Guy
