Coffee & Ice Cream Lovers Unite – It’s National Coffee Ice Cream Day!
Perhaps you’ve been out dining with friends when the server approaches the table and asks if you’d like to see a dessert menu…you answer with an emphatic “Yes, of course!” You quickly glance over the menu and decide on a bowl of vanilla ice cream with a necessary, after-dinner coffee and then wait anxiously for what you’d consider to be the ultimate dessert. Ah yes…ice cream and coffee…the perfect pair.
Moments (though it seems like hours) later, the server reappears and places a dessert in front of each guest, then hurries away into the kitchen. Everyone else begins to nibble on their desserts while making small talk, but you – you can’t take one bite. You smile nervously and start to look around for the server because he/she has forgotten a crucial part of your dessert – the coffee.
You look down at your seemingly sad, melting bowl of vanilla ice cream and a tear rolls down your cheek.
Just as you open your mouth to scream, a cup of coffee magically appears beside your ice cream. You hear a voice ask, “May I get you anything else?” Your answer is, of course, “no” as you take a sip of coffee and scoop your first spoonful of ice cream. Now all is right with the world.
Although this scenario may be an exaggeration, coffee has been known to be dessert’s perfect match. It’s no surprise that coffee ice cream was created and that we’ve declared an entire day to celebrate it and all its glory.
So, three cheers for today - Happy National Coffee Ice Cream Day to all our CoffeeCow Fans!
