Well, I’m really quite biased on this one. First, I’m not a big fan of chocolate. Second, and most important, my favorite memories of childhood are of us loading into the back seat of my Father’s beat-up Jeepster (dating to the 50s or 30s, I can’t remember which) convertible (that we sometimes had to push to kick-start) and heading to the Tastee-Freez for some ice cream. Mom (allergic to chocolate) would always get a butterscotch dipped cone. I’d get the vanilla cone, my twin would get a strawberry sundae (hold the whipped cream and nuts), and my older sister and brother would usually get hot fudge sundaes. Dad would get a chocolate dipped cone and we’d happily eat in the parking lot on the roadside. Great memories!
