Neapolitan Ice Cream AT LAST!!

Brad is an ice cream connoisseur.

He spends more time in the ice cream isle than anyone I've ever met, and that is doubled if he goes with Liam. I sometimes stand there with him and listen to his debating, but I get tired of just looking at it. Brad happens not to like 2 of my favorite flavors, Neapolitan and Fudge Swirl. I suggest getting those flavors almost every single time, but we never do. I can't tell you how many times my plea for fudge swirl has been denied, I can only remember getting it once and we buy ice cream nearly every grocery trip. I've always been denied Neapolitan, I finally asked why and this was Brad's response... "ok, let's go look at it... nope, that one has the chocolate next to the strawberry. I only get it if the chocolate is next to the vanilla." WOW! Ok, he officially deserves the title of a connoisseur, don't ya think!

Part two to this story is that we have been wanting, very badly, some chocolate ice cream. Unfortunately Kaci can't have chocolate (she breaks out), so I was ALONE in the ice cream isle and I thought, "hmm, neapolitan has chocolate and vanilla... maybe I should just get it!!" Kaci covered her mouth in shock, but I proceeded and got it! VICTORIOUS AT LAST! When Brad opened the freezer and found the neapolitan he said "ok, but you have to eat the strawberry chocolate line." I responded "GLADLY!!"

hahaha oh my gosh, i love this story! but every time i read your blog it really just makes me sad that you live so far away.

who the heck doesn't like fudge swirl?? that is just jibberish! i think i am a lover of all flavors, except for maybe cherry garcia kind. that is just gross.

CIERRA!
The things you say just crack me up "a lover of all flavors" you are hilarious. I'm glad we're both bloggers since we aren't in close proximity anymore!

I think I remember hearing once that icecream was one the of major food groups at the Hebner home.

Kerri, I loved reading your blog. Your family is soo cute.

That is so funny. But, I can understand, since being married I think I have had my fair share of debating in the ice cream isle. Way to go just getting it.

When you grow up eating ice cream for breakfast you grow quite particular-as you just described!
