There's a cocktail.
Now there's an ice cream.
All that's missing is a street name.
My friends over at Jake's Ice Creams have created an ice cream in honor of my birthday month. It's called "Shameeka OMGka" and O-M-G! When I got the call, I could hardly believe it. An eponymous tub of ice cream? Jake challenged me to come up with the ingredients and it wasn't an easy task. Mr TBS wanted me to do something that included my two favorite pastries: pecan twirls and honeybuns. While it was a great suggestion; 'twas a bit too boring. Yaaaaaawwwwwwnnnnnn.
I opted for a concoction of my favorite candy bars: Snickers, Reese's Cups and Butterfingers. Mixed in a vanilla base with salted caramel? Heaven.
Mr TBS and I decided to pop over to Jake's on Sunday for a scoop. The tub was halfway gone (folks had been purchasing scoops all day)! We were joined by some of our dear friends including the blogosphere's FunkiDivaGirl, The Key Influencer and Lucky+Lovely. Oh, we had a blast! Jake has made mention of adding the flavor to the menu...we'll see! Swing by and ask for it and, oh, THEY SHIP!
As we wind down the dog days of summer, what would YOUR signature ice cream flavor include and what'd be the name?
