We all Scream for Ice Cream

When it comes to outings with the family we have a few fave things we like to do. Often costs can add up when you have a big family, so we try to stick to a budget and close to home. Often a walk on the beach or stroll through the mall is enough to entertain the kids on a boring day. But sometimes, a treat is needed. Plus the smile on their face when they know they are getting a treat is priceless! 

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! When it comes to family time, weekends, days off and evenings, we love to go for ice cream. There is something about the fun tasty treat that literally freezes time. When I was a kid we too would go for ice cream with my mom and dad, however the choices were not like what they are now. I remember them being pretty basic. If a place had more than 5 choices it was unusual and very exciting. Sitting there enjoying each others company while eating that yummy cone created memories I will cherish forever.

I believe there is a reason you see pregnant women craving ice cream in the middle of the night. There is a reason why people when depressed or having a girls night in love to eat ice cream. It makes you feel good! There is probably some technical or medical reason too, but I personally know the yummy sweet coldest of ice cream makes everything seem better for me. Ben & Jerry’s flavours are like no other I have ever seen before. They are trendy, quite funny and often make the news when one is newly named. Names like Couch Potato and Scotty Scotch Scotch, it is hard not to smile when ordering. Phish food and Cherry Garcia are a couple I have been hearing about and wanting to try. When we order ours the kids and hubs love strawberry cheesecake, myself I prefer chocolate of some sort. The more chocolate the better! 

With summer now officially here and gas prices rocketing, I see many staycations in our near future. Many that will include a quick getaway for ice cream. Compared to other family activities going for ice cream is affordable and takes very little time. Grab a cone and go for a stroll. Share some stories ad make some memories with your loved ones. 



What is your favourite ice cream flavour? Are you a late night indulger or a social ice cream eater? 


  1. DD5 and Hubs LOVE ice cream… dd loves French Vanilla and Hubs seems to be gravitating towards Peanut Butter Bliss this year… I could take it or leave it, unless it's really hot and it's really good 🙂

    I love Jamoca Almond Fudge, which is only available at Baskin Robbins.

    I love ice cream – especially chocolate flavours like Heavenly Hash and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. A walk down to the local ice cream shop is a great family outing, and we're fortunate enough to have one within walking distance.

  4. My fave flavour is peanut butter chocolate and I am an all the time ice cream eater but I prefer going on a ice cream date.

  5. You can never go wrong with chocolate. Simple pleasures.
