Ice Cream Bar Consistency Management System
It’s fucking hot here right now. And I’m always buying ice cream bars at the grocery store, and then by the time I get home, unload Mini, get Mini some goldfish and milky-milk, convince him to stay put in front of his play table, lock the baby gate behind me, and go back out to take the ice cream bars out of the car, they are all mushy and disgusting looking. This has happened countless times, and it’s an abomination for me to have to choose between eating something that looks like this or throwing away one of my precioussss bars.
Enter the miniature ice cooler I bought for the back of the car. I know that this is another situation where a bunch of you are like, “DUH,” but no, it never occurred to me before I read about it on the message boards. So thanks, ladies, for another great tip–my ice cream bars are perfectly frozen upon arrival in my garage, even after driving around in LA traffic for a half hour.
And yes, I buy three boxes at a time. Sometimes more.
