From WikipediaIce cream or ice-cream is a frozen dessert usually made from dairy products, such as milk and cream, and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavours. Most varieties contain sugar, although some are made with other sweeteners. In some cases, artificial flavourings and colourings are used in addition to (or in replacement of) the natural ingredients. This mixture is stirred slowly while cooling to prevent large ice crystals from forming; the result is a smoothly textured ice cream.
As we all know the best Ice Cream in the world, is home made...nothing matches that flavor and the memories of churning the ice cream for hours and then eating it usually outside at picnics!
In our world most of us don't make homemade ice cream any longer except for a really special event. This has lead to more brands of gourmet Ice Cream...Ben & Jerry's, Breyer's and that does not include the ice cream stores such as Baskin-Robbins (remember 21 flavors?), Coldstone Creamery and my favorite Bruster's. However I have become a huge fan of Blue Bell Ice Cream.
I arrived in Texas and at the Welcome Center and I see
Blue Bell Ice Cream Truck!!
YUM! They have so many flavors but
Butter Pecan is one of my favorites
I had to buy a 1/2 Gallon to do a taste test!
All for my friends in Blogland of course!
Can you see all the big yummy chunks of Pecans?
So smooth and such flavor!
