Ice cream: chocolate or vanilla?

A recent Harris poll of 2183 people showed that America’s favorite ice cream flavor is chocolate (28%).

It figures. I like vanilla better (26%). My husband Ed always says I am a great person to poll to figure out if a product will be popular or not. I always pick the thing that isn’t. Like the patterns of stuff I picked (dishes and so on) when I got married, which have all been discontinued because not so many people wanted them.

Even more to the point, my real favorite ice cream flavor is peach, with only 5% of Americans with me on that.

Apparently, Democrats prefer vanilla a little more than chocolate. It’s the oposite with Republicans.

They needed a poll to realize that the Democrats and Republicans would disagree? 

Well, this is an area on which we could compromise right? For example, wouldn’t everyone, whatever their political point of view, like a Black and White Shake? The perfect summer sweet “smoothie” made from vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and milk.

Black and White Milkshake

1 cup vanilla ice cream

1/4 cup chocolate syrup

1/2 cup whole milk

Place ingredients in a blender and blend for about one minute or until well mixed and thick. Makes one

I’d vote for this, wouldn’t you?
