Milky Way Magic Star Ice Cream (by @NLi10)
I was out this week watching the Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers (from near Glasgow) at the Bromsgrove Artrix this week with a very sore throat. I'd been looking for some little things to slot in as reviews and hadn't seen one of these before and thought that it would be worth a look.
Essentially it's a chocolate ice-cream on a stick, with vanilla ice-cream on a stick in the middle.
While this is a relatively simplistic treat (and quite cheap) I found it very enjoyable. It soothed the aching throat (and stopped any second half coughing fits) and also had a very good flavour. You really can't go wrong with chocolate or vanilla ice-cream and both together is just all kinds of good.
It got me to thinking - how odd would it be to give people ice-cream (i scream!) when they came trick or treating? Granted, they'd pretty much have to eat it as soon as they got home - sooner if it was a warm cloudy night, but it'd be a little bit more interesting than the normal bits and bobs. One year I gave out snack size chocolate bars and had most of the street come back with each other's masks on until I turned out the pumpkin light so I could eat the rest myself. I blame that year's exuberance on the trick-or-treat sim Costume Quest.
