When it comes to ice cream, my needs.....


When it comes to ice cream, my needs are simple. I just want to be able to walk into the store, go to the freezer and get my ice cream. A couple of days ago, simple couldn't be found in my vocabulary. A couple of days ago I had a hard time searching for my favorite kind of ice cream.

Like I said, my needs are simple. All I want is Vanilla Ice cream. You'd think that would be simple right???

Think again!

It seems like the stores around here are getting caught up in a frenzy of flavorific proportions.

I don't want Panda Paws!
I don't want Cookies & Cream!
I don't want Cookie Dough (although I like this one)!
I don't want Cherry Vanilla!
I don't want Chocolate 'N' Vanilla
I don't want French Vanilla
I don't want Vanilla Bean!

The only Ice Cream I am looking for is VANILLA ICE CREAM!
Is that TOO MUCH to ask FOR???!!!

I had to look at different brands, and I know Ben & Jerry's don't have it, so I didn't even go there. Friendly's had it but a carton of there's is $6.19. My stores brand was at a good price, but they didn't have any in stock. They didn't have any in Breyers Either! I had to go with Perry's vanilla ice cream, even though it was $4.29.

I had a craving that day and I told some of my co-workers that I was getting some ice cream. I did and it is good. Is it worth the price I spent? Lets just say next time I will endure my craving, until there is a sale.

Mmmm...vanilla is my favorite too! People think I'm crazy when I pass up all the different flavors, but I'm a purist when it comes to ice cream. Sometimes less is more, right?

Fred Meyers, even though I HATE that store has Double Vanilla... It tastes smooth n creamy and how GOOD old fashioned Vanilla used to taste.... It's orgasmic... Vanilla ROCKS... Vanilla is my fav as well.... I do every once in a while go for one of the "flavored" ones... either just plain ol chocolate.. or Moosetracks ya know the kind with peanutbutter cups in it.... Oh and of course, when I am really depressed.. Chocolate Chip Mint with Magic Shell... ::smiles::

Wow, I typed almost a whole POST!

Thank you!
