When it comes to ice cream, I don’t think there’s anything better than a pint of Ben & Jerry’s in your favorite flavor to satisfy your craving. I only like ice cream in the summer, and since it was super hot here last weekend, it was time for the first pint of the season. And I’d forgotten just how much Allegra loves Ben & Jerry’s, but not for the reason you might think. But why don’t I Iet her tell you yourself.
Hi everyone, it’s Allegra! The other day, I was fast asleep in a sun puddle, when all of a sudden, I heard a noise I hadn’t heard for several months now. It was coming from the kitchen. I immediately ran to investigate, and oh, what I saw made me so happy! Mom was opening one of those magical blue and green containers she sometimes gets when the weather is warm.
The container has a crinkly plastic ring around the top, and hearing the noise of it tearing just drives me absolutely bonkers. I always come running whenever I hear the tell tale crinkle sound of something being opened, but the one around that particular container is the most purrfect and bestest one ever!
Mom always lets me play with it for a few minutes. She dangles it and drags it along the floor and I go nuts!
Sometimes, I grab it and run away with it, but Mom always follows me. She never lets me out of her sight when I play with it.
Sadly, those play session always end very quickly, because Mom takes the thing away from me as soon as I start chewing on it. Doesn’t she know that that’s the most fun part of all in this game?
I know, I know. She doesn’t want me to swallow pieces of plastic and she takes it away from me to keep me safe, but still, she’s ruining my fun! But, she lets me lick a tiny little bit of the ice cream after she takes the plastic ring away from me. It’s quite tasty, but it’s not nearly as much fun as chewing on the plastic.
I wish Mom would open one of those blue and green containers every day, because that seal is just, well, the cat’s meow! Oh, wait, Mom wants to write some more, so excuse me while I go take a nap so I’ll be ready for the next time she opens one of the magic pints.
This is Ingrid again. I wish I could open one of those magic pints every day, too! And by the way, what is up with the “3 servings per container?” Doesn’t everyone know that a pint is one serving, and that the proper way to eat it is to take a paper towel, fold it in half, wrap it around the container, and start to enjoy?
Some of my favorite flavors are Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chunky Monkey, Cherry Garcia, and Pistachio Pistachio. Are you a Ben & Jerry’s fan? What’s your favorite?
