Gonna buy and eat an ice cream today.
It's snowing outside.
You can eat ice cream, of any kind, any time. There's a late night ice cream parlour near me and they're still jam packed all the time regardless of the weather
however, I was stunned to see a woman eating an ice lolly on the Christmas market on the Southbank yesterday. Yes; OUTSIDE!
trust me on this.
buying ice-cream isn't like buying strawberries.
it wont melt as easy
i was toying with the idea of buying a mars ice cream the other day
What is normal soup but cold gazpacho soup? Maybe we've been eating hot gazpacho all along.
are you in Glasgow?
come back on the 24th, got work on the east coast till then
You want ice cream stats? You've got it!
"It is estimated that sales in the three summer months can be as much as five times sales through the winter."
"The average per person consumption of ice cream in the UK is 8.5 litres, way behind new zealand, australia and the united states where consumption exceeds 20 litres."
"New products and innovation must focus on taking ice cream into new areas of use whilst encouraging greater consumer interested in the product."
"Despite innovation and promotional activity, UK consumption of ice cream has been stubbornly stuck at the same level for many years."
"Most product development in the retail sector today has become bogged down with flavour and line extensions. Whilst this might help to maintain brand shares and consumer interest it is doing little to grow the respective sectors."
"The major examples of successful product developments during the past twenty years have included vienetta, the ice cream mars bar and magnum."
also, i had some mint chocolate vienetta the other week. <3<3<3<3<3
eating ice cream or an ice lolly with the heating on/a fire going wearing a big jumper is bliss. Also, lollies are ace for hangovers all year round.
I ended up eating an ice cream sandwich while strolling down Michigan Avenue (big, well-populated by other pedestrians, often tourist-ridden street) the other night. It was lovely.
