Imagine All the People…Eating ICE CREAM!

21 Jun

Has something ever captured your taste buds so much that you are constantly looking for it everywhere you go?

Last year, I walked into a Whole Foods and browsed through their ice cream section. Me, I’m a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream fan and I’m also a John Lennon fan. So can you just imagine my happiness thermometer when I glance to see a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor called “Imagine Whirled Peace” in honor of thee John Lennon?!

IMAGINE this in my belly….

This sweet concoction is made up of:

caramel & sweet cream ice cream swirled with fudge peace signs and toffee cookie pieces

Oh boy! Me and my puppy, LUCYintheskywithdiamonds, by the way, truly enjoyed the pint of ice cream during my one-hour lunch break. Not an appropriate portion size, I know. Nor highly nutritious but tastefully addicting! I have since been able to find this wonderful gift of sweet goodness from Ben & Jerry’s but the memory it left: priceless.

According to Ben & Jerry’s:

When Ben & Jerry’s wanted to talk about peace, we couldn’t think of a better person to exemplify the message than John Lennon. Through his art and lyrics he imagined a world without war and asked us all to ‘Give Peace a Chance’. We hope this whirly mixture of toffee cookies and fudge peace signs enlightens your bellies and souls and makes you ask what you can do to promote peace in your lives.

My go-to has always been Cherry Garcia but every so often, I cheat on it with thoughts of those fudge peace signs and sweet cream ice cream. If it was a moment that was supposed to be experienced once, then it was a moment that was experienced to its fullest….
