Ice cream is synonymous with summer summer summer. Time is a great time to enjoy some bluebell ice cream. Absolutely, and you know going back to national ice cream month um. You know. Reagan said that that the third sunday in uh in the month of july would actually be national ice cream days. Oh wow, of course you know in our house. We celebrate that you know and, and we uh you know and for bluebell in general. We typically, you know, release a flavor this time of year. For that – and you know, milk and cookies this year has been that flavor um, and you know what i did want to say is that you can find this flavor at any major retailer um. You can um and if you don’t see it on the shelf, you know, of course, ask for your store manager for it and we’ll make sure we get that delivered to the store it could be flying off the shelves, because man it’s been hot absolutely and what More iconic snack is there than milk and cookies i mean that’s. Something we do year round is milk and cookies. Well, absolutely you know and i’ll be honest with you it’s one of my favorite tasting flavors um. I love the fact that it’s just a simple vanilla, ice cream and chocolate chip, cookies um, you know we have customers that that’ll just put you know, vanilla in between chocolate chip cookies and make a cookie sandwich, and you know i think this just kind of fits That you know that mold and that that fun um fun little treat that you can.
You can get kids or adults alike and david. How far along? Are you on your creation? There we’re actually getting pretty close to being done. This is such a fast and easy. You know simple treat, for you know parents to make while kids are at home this summer, or you know just any time on the weekend, um so i’m, just adding a thin layer of whipped, topping to it and um. You know you just take us. Take a spoon and just spread it out. You just it’s almost like a like a layered cake, almost but we’re doing this with a chocolate chip, cookies and ice cream. After this, then, what we’re going to do? Okay, now, then we’re going to have to so we’ve. Now, we’re, just going to take a crumbled, crumbled up chocolate, chip, cookies and we’re, going to sprinkle it here on top, oh man, yeah, so more chocolate chip, cookies, the better and then we’ll. Take that and then i’ve got some chocolate shavings here. So, of course, there’s gon na sprinkle, you know sprinkle some more chocolate. I mean you can’t go wrong with that, more chocolate too sure. So we add and ben. I guess this is one time you wish you were there with david. I know this is kind of unfair isn’t it i don’t even get to participate at least normally we get on a set together right. You know i can at least try it. We got to have you, gentlemen, in our studio, sometime to to make some more creations with that wonderful bluebell ice cream.
