Writing 101: Commentary You Never Knew You Needed

This prompt, you guys. This prompt. I was browsing through my comments looking for my, erm, incredibly insightful(?) feedback and found this instead. This is a response to kelsee727’s day 2 list on her blog, Kelsey’s Journey:

Ben & Jerry are the most important men in my life.
I’m a Phish Food girl. 🙂
Love your list! I hate shaving, but I do like the smooth leg feel.

That is the closest a blog post comment has ever come to capturing my essential nature. Things I do a lot: eat ice cream, touch my legs, read lists. Things I do rarely: shave my legs.

The end.

Oh, 100 words isn’t good enough? Fine. Let’s take a moment to appreciate Ben & Jerry’s then, shall we? So we already know Phish Food is the greatest of all Ben & Jerry’s flavors; however, my current obsession is Cinnamon Buns. I acknowledge that I may have overdone pumpkin in autumns gone by (pumpkin soup, pumpkin mac & cheese, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cream cheese cookies [but I will NEVER apologize for pumpkin waffles with apple cider syrup]). This year (as we careen wildly towards October?!!?!?), I’m not really feeling it with pumpkin, but I’m obsessed with cinnamon. Admittedly, cinnamon is appropriate for all seasons, though it tastes better when you’re wearing a sweater, no? Or is that just a librarian thing?

Pretty sure it’s no longer available, but Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road was amazing, and not only because it was the Elton John flavor. Chocolate, peanut butter cookie dough, butter brickle. Also delicious: Clusterfluff (stupidly renamed What a Cluster because it offended people and Ben & Jerry let the terrorists win [I can only assume]).

You thought this post was going to be about more than just ice cream? You don’t know me at all.

  1. Phish food is definitely the best B&J’s flavour. Although the caramel core one is also delightful, because I love caramel! I’m not a big fan of pumpkin, dreading the start of everyone banging on about pumpkin spice lattes again…

    1. Ahhhhhhhhhhh, I completely neglected the core flavors. I am in LOVE with the peanut butter one even though there’s no chocolate in it.
      I’m going to be controversial and say it: pumpkin has had its moment in the sun. Bring it on, butternut squash/cinnamon/all other autumnal flavors besides pumpkin.


  2. I’m going to start an argument now! 🙂 New York Super Fudge Chocolate Chunk (which used to be the “old” name) is THE best! I used to drive to Vermont just to fill up my cooler with this stuff years ago before it was sold in Canada! 🙂

    1. Bring it on! 😉
      NY Super Fudge Chunk (I think that’s what it is now?) is amazing, and it’s hard to go wrong with Ben & Jerry’s. I feel like I have the most authentic relationship I’ve ever had with them. I LOVE that the chocolate is fish-shaped in Phish Food, though. Easily influenced by food being cute.
      I’m impressed by your dedication to the ice cream cause!
