Do you ever obsess over a food flavor that isn’t exactly the most popular?  It’s safe to say most people love (obsess) over chocolate ice.

 

When I come out with any recipe that involves chocolate, it’s like a million tween girls finding out Justin Beiber just Tweeted.

Add that chocolate to ice cream?

I like it a lot, but my FAVORITE flavor growing up was mint chocolate chip. From Thrifty’s, to be specific.

After moving to New England, I can say the Northeast has better ice cream hands down. CA does froyo best. Thrifty’s, however, was a step ahead when it came to serving ice cream.

 

LOOK at those cylinders! The scoops are far less likely to fall off. The surface area to tongue ratio is more equivalent, not to mention less drippage. This was my childhood fixation.

 

Why has the rest of the country not followed suit? Get your shit together people.

    OMG I am a California girl as well, and remember Thrifty ice cream fondly. where else could you get a double scoop for .25
    i live in Las Vegas now, and they opened a Thrifty Ice cream store in Henderson. The only down fall is that now double scoops are closer to 4BUCKS. but it’s still some of the best ice cream.
