I stay away from writing about heart-breaking crises in the world. Others are better than I am at that. But I am not shy about sharing personal crises, and –get ready—this is a big one.
Trader Joe’s is out of coffee ice cream! When I went to replenish my supply just after the fourth of July and saw none, I asked a helper to check “in back”, but no luck. I figured the fourth of July had emptied the freezer shelves. He assured me it would be in the next day.
On my second visit, I got more information, but no ice cream. It seems that there was a production issue and all Trader Joe’s stores are ice cream-less AND they are not sure when it will be solved.
The next day, a friend was going to Trader Joe’s and agreed to check. No luck.
That night, out of desperation, I took some vanilla ice cream that I save for hot fudge sundaes from the freezer and poured left-over brewed coffee on top. It wasn’t bad.
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
We do what we must do! Good thinking.

I feel your pain. Coffee ice cream is my favorite too! A simple but necessary pleasure.

Sounds like you sort of made an affogato!
