POST #    695

For some reason, during the winter, I cannot resist the cold treats. During the winters when in junior high, I have memories of buying Dannon Yogurt ice cream bars, but not during the summer (during the summer, I would order cold pizza).

Yesterday, despite the cool temperatures, I couldn't resist a McFlurry. Forced to choose between Oreos and M&M's, I went with the M&M. I actually wanted Butterfinger, but nooo, they didn't have that. Has anyone else noticed how the M&Ms in a McFlurry lose their color and create a sort of rainbow colored ice cream treat with cold chunks of chocolate? Yum.

I thought I was the only one that ate those in the winter. Do they have the mint kind over there?

My tastes are pretty simple when it comes to cold treats. I've always loved cherry slushies from 7-11 or wherever. Not sure why, but I can't get enough of those things.

i remember going to the chinatown ice cream factory with jeannette last february and we were walking around outside with coats, hats, gloves, scarves and ice cream cones. that was a bit crazy.. our cones didnt melt though!

that's right! i forgot about that. it's a weird experience walking around with ice cream outside for more than 5 minutes and not having it get goopy.

daily candy featured a home-mcflurry machine. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00008YSLM/qid=1074022772//ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i0_xgl21/104-4557066-3603146?v=glance&s=toys&n=507846 they should have read the reviews before featuring it. it got a dreary 2 stars out of 5, and 69 reviews.

growing up, i remember a candy/ice cream joint in new haven that used to mix cookies and candy goodness into ice cream (mix-in's, i think they were called?). i was insane for that stuff.

yeah, i saw that there was a mcflurry maker when i checked google. it also seems that they use smarties in the u.k. i thought that was pretty smart...har har.

I think the McFlurry spoon/stirrer is one of the great inventions of the past ten years.

Wait a minute. Where are there 7-11s in NYC? How come I've never noticed one? I love Slurpees. They were a very important part of my bored suburban adolescence.

corie, i was actually in long island. i think garden city. we saw two 7-11s. that might be the one thing i would want form the suburbs in the city. parks, trees, nah...7-11, yes!

drat. their coffee isn't that bad either, in a fix. 7-11 slurpees beat slush puppies any day.
