Favorite Flavor

I absolutely love, love, love black raspberry ice cream. I think it's a decidedly New England flavor, as it's tough to find elsewhere. It's definitely getting better, but still not an easy find. I found it in Florida, of all places, when ABF, Dad, Bobbie & I hit Bentley's Homemade Ice Cream in Nokomis, Florida---just over the bridge from Casey Key. Apparently the owner makes all of his own ice cream and gelato flavors--you could even buy pints of it.

I tried a flavor of gelato before deciding on what I knew all along I really wanted: BLACK RASPBERRY!

ABF opted on an ice cream sundae with chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, chocolate syrup and chopped peanuts. This was yummy, too, but I did not have order envy this go-round.

My ice cream? Totally worth it. And in a sugar cone? Well, I might as well be a kid on the beach in Cape Cod all over again. And for a few minutes, it kind of felt like I was.
