directly from the container has such a wonderful feeling. I have never done this before but last night I decided to experience it.
I have a Texas gallon (a gallon plus) of ice cream in a bucket. Chocolate Revel was the flavor, vanilla with wonderful swirls of chocolate syrup mixed through out.
So, I think, I want ice cream but am too lazy to make a bowl. I don't want much, just a few bites and back goes the bucket to the freezer...that was my plan.
I select a spoon and rip off the lid of my huge Texas gallon and start to have a new experience.
Now I know why I see so many doing this on tv!
I rake my spoon slowly along the surface of the frozen ice cream. The ice cream shaves off in a thin film of delectable culinary delight. I place said spoon in my mouth and immediately am transported to Paradise.
Something about the thin slivers attack my taste buds in a way a mere spoon of ice cream has never done. I taste the delicate vanilla and the comforting taste of chocolate is separate and equally delightful.
I must have another. The ice cream flavors assault my senses as I stand in the kitchen with a empty spoon in my hand, I know I am lost.
...so I have another bite, and another. The joy does not lessen with each spoonful, but instead increases. I am lost.
I truly understand now why people eat from the container. I also understand why this ice cream is called Chocolate Revel.
