After ten hours of nerve-wracking pool trying to win a spot in the regional championships (and losing), I was in need of comfort food. I needed ice cream. Mint chocolate chip ice cream, to be exact.
So, off I went to my local grocery store (the only one open on Saturday nights). And wouldn’t you know it? Not one carton of mint chocolate chip ice cream to be found. Or strawberry. Or even butterscotch ripple. In fact, the freezer section was almost bare. Why was there a sudden shortage of ice cream? Surely there couldn’t be that many people in need of consolation in my little town at the same time.
Then I spied a few containers of Cadbury Crispy Crunch ice cream in the back of the freezer. I’d never tried it before, and I’m not one for having candy bars in my ice cream, but desperation won out. It’s actually pretty good, but I still prefer my mint chocolate chip.
Note to self: next playoffs, buy ice cream first, just in case.
What’s your favorite comfort food?
