John Scalzis Weekend Assignment #69--A New Ice Cream Flavor

Weekend Assignment #69: You've been hired to invent a new ice cream flavor ...what is it?

   Flavor is not only in taste....but in the experience!

This new flavor will only be served in a place where the diners are seated and served. This new flavor will not be sold in supermarkets, or be available in pints. quarts or half gallons.  You cannot eat this alone!

   It will come to your table in a bowl with two spoons...or formed into a milkshake and served in glass with two straws. It can only be shared.

   This  frozen delight will have the subtle delicasy of white chocolate, laced with  dark chocolate ribbons and hidden inbtween a flavor of toasted almond.

   Once served, you will simultaneously share in the experience .....a complete indulgence in a sweet and refreshing world. You will share in each others smiles, and appreciation of the moment. Most likely a flattering compliment will come your way..something about your hair, or your eyes. As your tastebuds dance, a wide smile lightens the room.

   With such a simple intamacy, you will have not only savored a flavor that will last on your lips, but a moment that will last in your heart!

Sprinkles are optional!                       Marc :)

I love how you take something so simple and bring out the pleasures in it.  You always have a way of going beyond the superficial level of things and finding the core of it. This ice-cream sounds delicious in many ways.

I'd like to place an order.....
1 bowl, 1 man, to share it with, hold the sprinkles please...; )
Sounds delicious!!!
I love the photo! Did you take it or is it someone you know?
It does look like a vintage photo, so you probably didn't take it....

I do believe that flavor is even better than that of my beloved mint chocolate chip ice cream!
