While on a run through the neighborhood of Wallingford tonight, I came across Molly Moon’s! A delicious hand-made ice cream store that our friend Daniel had just recommended to us. So this must be a SIGN I thought! (Only I could let a wonderful run lead to ice cream).
Now I had heard of Molly Moon’s a couple times before but I never gave much thought to it. I heard they had….unusual flavors. The last time I tried an odd flavored ice cream was at my friend Alli’s house. It was Snoqualmie Ice cream…and it was Lavender flavored! Everyone looked at me as I took the first bite….
“Well, what does it taste like?” Her Dad asked.
“Lavender….” I said.
(He would agree with me very soon. Although it sounds dumb the only way to explain it’s taste is just that. Lavender.) Either way. It was not good. So you can see why I haven’t been rushing to get down to Molly Moon’s. But this year is a year for new things after all. And fate had led me here…right?
So as soon as Jaryl was done with rehearsal we headed in. The store was small. A line of about 10 people in about 20 feet of space. I sampled salted caramel, earl grey and I wanted to try more (Particularly chili chocolate) BUT the girls working there were unpleasant to say the least. So I settled on a kids cone of Scout mint (mint ice cream with thin mints crushed in). I know it wasn’t what I sampled but sometimes I don’t make sense.
Jaryl sampled Theo Chocolate and that’s what he got. Don’t worry I tricked him into trying mine…even though he hates mint. But he needs to try new things.
The ice cream was delicious. I will go back to see what new flavors they get.
