Milky Way Magic Star Ice Cream (by @NLi10)

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.

Sometimes the simple things are the best. I'd love to be able to find it :)
