The Strong Must Protect the Sweet
Following up on 2 items of long ago...
In my quest to discover the perfect soft serve ice cream dip, I have to say I'm disappointed in the local offerings. While there is more than Dairy Queen in town, all seem to serve the same basic three flavors: cherry, chocolate, and butterscotch.
Contrast that with what can be found up in my family's ancestral lands of the southern tier of New York. There various stores abound with choices of dip flavors: grape, bubble gum, orange, lemon lime.... you haven't lived until you have had a chocolate soft serve with blue raspberry dip.
I am happy to report that on my way back through Wickenburg that the local Tastee Freeze there does a black raspberry dip that would make even the best purveyor of the cold sweet stuff proud. If you're passing through on your way to or from Vegas, stop in, order a medium cone, and tell them Anonymous Mike sent you.
However even more importantly.....
The 2008 award for "Best Discounted Easter Candy Available after Easter" goes to the Walgreens at 7th & Camelback. Any store can be deep discounting stale jelly beans and chocolate bunnies a week after Easter, however, it takes a special genius to have 75% off Russell Stover cream eggs and chocolate Peeps.
Thank you Walgreens and Tastee Freeze for making Arizona a better place to live.
