Give me Chocolate

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “32 Flavors.”

Vanilla, chocolate, or something else entirely?

Oh please do not tease, I remember going to an Ice Cream Parlor as children in Sorrento on holidays and they had so many flavors to choose from, Bubblegum, Rum & Raisin, Choc Mint, Strawberry, Banana………oh how I remember the sticky coolness dripping down your hand on a hot day in summer. It was always a special family treat, we got to pick two flavors and then had to gobble it all down before it melted everywhere. Such precious memories from childhood.I remember we used to have Hagen Daas, and we still have Cold Rock and of course there is the old Ben & Jerrys, but nothing beats the old fashioned ice cream parlor from when we were kids (I know, I know Back in the old days!).

These days I am Lactose Intolerant and there for I suffer when it comes to ice-cream, I can no longer partake in 32 or even more different flavors. Thankfully I am not completely left high and dry, thanks to one company; Liddells. I can have my choice of 2 flavors!!

Vanilla and Chocolate, so please give me chocolate! I will partake in Vanilla if needs be with pie or such, but always, always give me chocolate. Do not give me that fake soy ice cream, it is just not the same, it is gritty in texture and leaves a strange after taste. I guess I am lucky I can have some dairy and do not have to resort to Soy!
