Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Certain foods make you think about certain people. I am pretty sure I have an ice cream flavor that I relate to important people in my life.
- Mint chocolate chip reminds me of my Mom.
- Birthday cake reminds me of my Husband
- Chocolate and Vanilla Twist reminds me of my Dad
- Butter Pecan reminds me of my Grandma
What about you? What ice cream flavors remind you of people in your life?
I can’t help but wonder what ice cream flavor I am to all of the people I mentioned above.
PS. Yesterday was national chocolate chip day, I am almost on time with this post.
