We know how the saying goes. You scream, we scream…we all scream for ice cream. Who really knows how the phrase was coined or how it was made famous, but it’s a thing. Whenever the ice cream truck is heard coming down the street from two miles away, all the little children literally scream for ice cream – even the adults at times.
Ice cream is a delectable dessert that can be and usually is enjoyed by everyone. It’s a cool treat that makes those long summer nights even more enjoyable. It’s the perfect thing to couple with almost every other desert, and a la mode is forever the best way to eat apple pie. If you’re a lover of all things ice cream, here’s how you can take that love of ice cream to the next level:
Make it From Home
If you’ve never had ice cream churned from straight from grandma’s kitchen, then have you even ever had real ice cream before? All food is better when it’s homemade, and ice cream is no exception. Homemade ice cream should really be the rule. Get yourself a handy ice cream maker or a home churner if you really want to do it the right way.
You’ll build a lot of muscles hand churning the cream as it takes a long time to freeze, so the makers are the best bet. When you make ice cream from home, you’re controlling the process. You can put in any ingredient you want, you can make it as creamy or as peanut buttery as you desire. Once you try homemade, you’ll have a hard time going back to the ice cream aisle at the supermarket.
Eat it in Nashville
There are all sorts of home grown ice cream shops all over the world that offer you amazing concoctions that aren’t the kind of ice cream you’re used to seeing in the grocery store. The best of these shops has to be a place called Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in Nashville, Tennessee.
Tennessee is known to get really hot and really humid during the spring and summer months. This means that people line to blocks for the ice cream at Jeni’s. Try the Bourbon Salted Pecan or the Pistachio Honey for a lick on the wild side.
Make it Your Literal Life
If you love ice cream so much that you want to eat it, breathe it, sleep it, and make it your lifeblood, then all you have to do is open a shop of your own. Ice cream is beautiful because it can be anything you want it to be. Blueberry…toffee…almond…cake batter. Ice cream is a cold treat that will never go out of style. There isn’t a safer place for you to be than in the sweet or savory arms of your dearest friend.
