It’s terribly difficult for me to say no to ice cream, especially when it’s mint chocolate chip in the summer. There’s something so perfect about that combination of cool and creamy when the weather is warm and you’re out for a post-dinner stroll. I went with the kiddy-sized cup and the guy packed it to the edges, leaving me feeling particularly indulged and somewhat childish in my delight with that. But the best part was that it came with a long, parfait-style spoon. I am bizarrely obsessed with long stemmed utensils. They feel elegant…and they also keep a safe distance from stickiness (I always eat my oatmeal with a long stemmed spoon). And I absolutely loved the pink color of the spoon against the mint green of the ice cream– it reminded me of my bedroom when I was little. I made it home just as the rain drops started, and even managed to save my last bite for a picture.
