One of My Favourite Things

We all have those favourite things, that we like to have at any occation.....sometimes we use any occation to have it.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough icecream from Ben&Jerrys - yummi :o) Just realised that it is the 20th aniversary for that icecream this year.

First time I tasted this icecream was during a vacation in Florida, where the hot weather just called for something cold.... when my aunt and uncle discovered how much I enjoyed this icecream, they bought the biggest one, that they could find in the local supermarket, so it was handy in the freezer (we had rented an appartment for the vacation) - they always have a piece of key lime pie as dessert on holidays, which I don't like so they were happy to find something for me to eat as dessert.. Well icecream in the freezer and CocaCola + GingerAle in the refrigerator - who could ask for more? :o) Well it was a combination of those 3 things + nice weather, long walks on the nearby beach, relaxing, reading good books on the porch and.....ahh those memories.

They do have the icecream locally, and I have just discovered the 150ml portions in the nearby supermarket :o) Have a couple of them in my freezer and everytime I get my MS treatment at the hospital (every 4-6 weeks) I spoil myself with one of those in the evening - well I did have the treatment and then going to work afterwards.....and that's about the only time when I spoil myself with this icecream - besides when on vacation in Florida.

My fave...Ben And Jerry's Caramel Hat Trick- a triple-threat of caramel ice cream with a caramel swirl and fudge covered caramel chunks

Talenti's Belgian Milk Chocolate gelato is my new favorite guilty pleasure. This is a great post, a glimpse into you and also sharing a very happy memory with family introducing you to this treat! I'm glad you reward yourself after a treatment, you need to pamper yourself!

Okay, could we just not go there? I mean really, i'm on a high dose of prednisone and ALL I CRAVE IS ICE CREAM!! I'm very partial to hagen'daz strawberry. Yep, that is my ultimate weakness. I allow myself a small pint 2 to 3 times a year and that's it.

Thank you for having me. I'll be having a giveaway later tonight if you would like to stop by and drop your name in. Bring friends.
Gentle hugs.

Gotta be Chocolate Fudge Brownie for me :) And a 500ml tub, none of this 150ml nonsense....
