Sweet and yummy, scoop 'em on; stack 'em on up to the sky. We love ice cream; my, oh my!

Did you know that the average number of licks to polish off a single ice cream cone is 50? Well, you should. Particularly when today is the day I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!!! YAYAYAYAYAY!

No, I haven’t lost it, sheesh. *rolls eyes* In 1984, President Ronald Reagan thought ice cream deserved to have the month of July dedicated to it and declared the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. *sings* “I like ice cream—yes, I do! One scoop for me? No! Make it two!” :D

Whether it’s on cones or sundaes or rootbeer floats, to banana split to my all time favorites: strawberry with cheesecake pieces *sigh* or brownie à la mode—oh my my my! Then, there are the oh-so-important toppings: Nutella, caramel, hot fudge (oh, be still my heart); macadamia, peanuts, and other nutty nuts. Fruits, whipped cream, marshmallows and chocolate: chips, strands, sprinkles or flakes! And you know what I love even better? When my ice cream is actually the topping over my man... *yummy* As the song goes, “some lick around and around, so it never ever comes dripping down.” LOL So you see, folks, serving ice cream is only as limited as your imagination. ;)

Look at this couple ice cream-ing (NOTE: NSFW image after the jump):

Heh. Nothing more satisfying than ice cream. :P Now, here’s a funny ad that’s been banned in Italy:

What about you? What flavors/brands of ice cream are your favorites? How do you serve it—or even better, how do you like it served? In any case, I say, it’s a good day, go indulge and have some scoop, scoop, scoop of ice cream. *g*

Lmao! This is a great way to start my day. :D Harlot, thanks for the laugh.

My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate by Dippin Dots. I love, love, love Dippin Dots! Just about every time I go to the mall, I'll stop by the place. I'll buy them EVERY chance I get. It's so addictive and so yummy!

Not a fan of Dippin Dots but my little brother loves it!

Correction: I *love* Harry Potter. How could i not? Personally, i don't think HP and LOTR should be compared. The two series are different and each has its own wonder. What's important is Tolkien and Rowling made people of all ages read and both have given the literary world such magnificent, irreplaceable treasures. :)

Which one are you referring to? My lover Raoul or the aerospace engineer? If you mean Raoul, then yes. Of course. I love him. :P If you mean the latter... well, we're still friends. *g*

Welcome and hope you guys join us often. I promise i don't bite, unless, of course, you're covered with ice cream. ;P

Harlot LOL. The video is very funny... I didn't know there's a National Ice Cream Day.

I luuuuuv moose tracks. It is chocolate ice cream with peanut butter cups and fudge swirls. It's really, really good. Yum!

LOL. That's funny. :P

I love ice cream. Anything chocolaty or minty or fudgy or peanut buttery or berry-y.

Vanilla is still one of my favorites because it's a fab stand by. You can put fudge on it, nuts, chocolate chips, fruits. You can drop it into any pop and have a float. My favorite: orange pop and vanilla ice cream mmmmmm...

I cannot believe that was banned in Italy. It was perfectly innocent! ;)

Let's see, ever heard of Blue Bell Moollenium Crunch? Others would be: orange/vanilla swirl, rainbow sherbet, strawberrys/creme, or ahhh yes, chocolate fudge almond cookie dough but always always vanilla w/peach cobbler or any fruit pie.

Ice cream is good, any shape, flavor or style. All that cold creamy smoothness, yumm!
my favorites are from Breyers:
Mint chocolate chip and Chocolate caramel Brownie.
Rocky road from Private Selection is great too.

I've always loved hot fudge. Mmmmm fudge... damn. I like a lot of ice cream but If I were to narrow it down, I would say Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia or the very popular chocolate peanut butter. :D

Donna, i know LOL. I thought it's very funny. :P

I love ice cream crepes too. Also luuuve BTIC: strawberry, pistachio, melon.. I know it's not really ice cream but frozen yogurt but, mmmmm... yum yum.

LMAO. I love Blue Bell. I think all Native Texans love it. Aynway I like so many flavors it's hard to narrow it down! Chocolate Fudge and Strawberry have been my long time favorites, and Moolineum Crunch too. I also like Edy's French Silk. Yummm!

We are very lacking in ice cream variety and flavors here in South East Asia, but thank God thank thank God we do get Haagen Dasz. Coffee. And Mint Choc Chip from Baskin.

And that video is nothing! I mean, they're Italian, right? RIGHT??

Harlot dear,
this brand of ice-cream isn't even sold in Italy,so I'm afraid you have got a wrong information. Why should they ban here a commercial of something we cant even buy? LOL
And even if,we see even worse commercials here so this is very innocent!;)
