I HEART Cherry Garcia
My name is Jenny and I am addicted to Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia Ice Cream. I really wish there was a 12 Step Program for this. I feel the need to fess up after my post on P90X progress. It has planted its little carton stubbornly in the way of ultimate success. The weird thing is that I don't even usually like cherry flavored stuff. Chocolate covered cherries? Not my favorite. And we hardly ever have ice cream in our refrigerator so it's usually not a temptation when I'm walking down the frozen food aisle.
I remember when it all first happened. I was walking by a stand-alone freezer kiosk and saw these little mini ice cream cartons that I thought were really cute. What is it about miniature stuff that is just so stinking cute? They were 99 cents. Joey and I both had long days at work and so I thought why not? They sensed my weakness. I picked up three different mini cartons and then spotted the It. It was as if all the other little flavored cartons of ice cream stepped aside and to pave the way for me to see the Cherry Garcia. I'd never tried it before and thought what the heck! And the rest is delicious history. I have for the past few weeks, craved Cherry Garcia ice cream and have given into my new found addiction several times since. They even include a mini spoon under the lid. Pure evil! At least with regular cartons of ice cream you have to be in the vicinity of a spoon to take advantage of it, but not this. Talk about eliminating customer's obstacles!
Anyway, I was just thinking about how good it would be right now. Cold and creamy, flavor of heaven ice cream with chocolate chips in that little itty bitty cute carton. Ok. Stop. Yes, I have a problem. So I've decided to write about it instead of eat it. I hope I have not caused anyone else to run to the store right now. My apologies. Maybe you should write about it. :)
