I fully agree it may be just a pinch too early for Christmas music and brightly lit trees, but I say it's never too early for peppermint ice cream. A few years ago I discovered this little gem in our local convenience store and was distraught when I couldn't locate it but for the season at hand. To my absolute delight, I was reconnected with my love years later, this time in Ohio. A different brand but even more delicious than my memory serves me. It's sheer magic which melts in your mouth.
Now, if only I could locate that infamous cinnamon ice cream which continues to elude me, all would be right in the world!
