That is a mint chocolate chip ice cream cone from Friendly's, on a plain cone.
We have been buying a lot of these lately:
...and I fear I may have become addicted. I have a moderate portion at the end of every night. Ok, and sometimes a small portion in the middle of the day if I am working at home.
Today I am working at work, and can't stop thinking about the green, crunchy, minty, sweet, chocolatey, refreshing treat that is sitting at home waiting for me.
Yes, we live in Vermont so I should be eating Ben and Jerry's. Sure, we try to eat really healthy and locally and blah blah blah, so I really shouldn't be eating a lot of dyed foods. With unnatural flavors.
But there is something still so wholesome and pure about the old-fashioned, traditional GREEN mint chocolate chip ice cream flavor. And, growing up in Massachusetts, I know Friendly's is the best. Because, like most other amazing things in the world, Massachusetts is the home of Friendly's. I would even venture to say that perhaps this ice cream is almost local...since it comes from Western Mass, and I grew up in Western Mass, and we are currently near to Western Mass.
Nothing else really compares. The chocolate chips crunch in your molars a certain way that is simply perfection. (And they then get stuck in your molars, but that just means you have a treat for later, when you get to pick out the chunks with your tongue.) And the green just tastes better.
