Coffee Ice Cream Re-visited

This is not the first time I’ve written about coffee ice cream. It’s my favorite food in the whole world, but only if it is made by Starbucks.  When Starbucks ice cream disappeared from my grocery store over a year ago, I called the customer service number on a container I had in the freezer, and learned that the brand had been sold to Unilever, the huge conglomerate that owns Ben and Jerry’s, Dove soap and just about everything else.  Customer service told me that Unilever was going to use Starbuck’s recipe. 

It took a long time for Starbucks ice cream to reappear in the grocery store, and when it did, it was only in pints and the price had gone up 50%.  So I rebelled and tried every other brand of coffee ice cream—Edy’s, Friendly’s, Brigham’s—you name it, I tried it.  Tonight, while not enjoying Friendly’s mocha chip, I finally decided that I deserved better.

I announced to Peter that I was going to bite the bullet and go back to the Starbucks brand, no matter what the price. 

After all, I am getting old. I need to make the most of every day.
