Recently, I had mentioned in private that Ben & Jerry's has a great new ice cream flavor, Red Velvet Cake ice cream? Reader HM gives this review:
Sweet Mother Mary in Heaven -- this stuff is ambrosia. I first tasted the nirvana that is red velvet cake in 1973, when a friend of mine who was a central Illinois farm girl made one, and I immediately fell helplessly lost in the spell of that deep red, yet chocolately, cake and that creamy, cheesy frosting. Of course, throughout the years, I have either made my own red velvet cakes or sampled others' creations.
But yesterday -- Ah! Yesterday, I was buzzing through the frozen food section at WF actually looking for some special veggie burgers -- but they've changed the cabinets around a bit, and before I knew what was happening, I found a pint of B&J'd Red Velvet Cake ice cream in my pudgy little hands. It was fate -- Karma -- It was meant to be. I shoved it in the very back of the freezer, so that I might be able to forget that it was in there. I lasted through last evening and last night, and all day today.
Finally, at 9:30 tonight, I could hear the siren song calling me -- singing my name over and over, louder and louder, giving me no rest whatsoever. I'd been good all day, eating only a piece of toast and some cherries and nectarines. Finally, I hobbled downstairs as fast as my fat little arthritic knees could carry me -- and grabbed that container from its hiding place. I snatched up a big spoon, ripped the top off, and just dug in. Oh. My. Sweet. Jesus. I have managed to consume the entire pint, my stomach is protesting, my serum glucose is probably bouncng off the ceiling, and I may die of DKA in the next five minutes (even though I am not diabetic). Trust me -- it will be worth every single seizure I may have.
Please sir, may I have more??????
