June - National Chocolate Ice Cream Day

Postby Maxim Trevelyan » Fri Jun 02, 2017 8:39 pm

Very close, on June 7th, the world celebrates National Chocolate Ice Cream Day.

Did you know that most ice cream scoops balanced on a cone is 121 and was achieved by Dimitri Panciera in Forno di Zoldo, Italy? I wonder how many licks it took to eat it all…

To celebrate National Chocolate Ice Cream Day, as a reply to this thread, post a photo that is, in some way, related to (chocolate) ice cream. It can be ice cream that you ate, one that you made, there are many possibilities. If it is unclear from the photo, explain your choice in a couple of sentences.

Photo must be of your own creation and all normal HOL rules apply.

For 15 Hoots and 15 beans, post your photograph (600x600 or less) relating to ice cream as a reply to this thread by June 30th 11:59 PM HOL time at the latest.

There is a place near me that has this amazing ice cream shop and my favorite thing to get is the "S'mores Mug." Its vanilla w/chocolate swirl ice cream topped with hot fudge. Then they put marshmallow fluff and pretzel sticks on top and light it on fire! Bonus, you get to keep the mug it comes in!!!

(Sorry its blurry, i quickly took this photo so i could eat it before the flames melted all the ice cream!)

Ooh, wow Arianna that sounds so cool!

Here's a photo of an ice cream I had recently. I really enjoy decorating the top, even though when I was younger I didn't enjoy toppings on my ice cream.

I am so excited about this! I went out to get cacao powder and discovered organic cherries on sale, so I said, "Yes!" My raw vegan chocolate nice cream turned into cherry chocolate nice cream! And yes, it is delicious!!!

If anyone ever wants to try it, it's very simple to make as well. All you need are 2-3 frozen bananas and 2 spoonfuls of cacao powder. If you want to mix in fruit like I did, that's great too. Strawberries are another amazing choice! Take the ingredients, blend them up, and eat it before it melts! Yes, it melts!

Heaven in a bowl. :D
