We All Scream for Ice Cream

I was at work the other day when I heard music. It was playing continuously so I was curious and went outside to check it out. To my surprise, on the parking lot, there was a big pink ice cream truck.

It is spring here and the days are getting hotter. It was nice to find an ice-cream truck just outside work. I ordered a softie dipped in chocolate. I know it was not on my menu for the day but sometimes indulgence is allowed while dieting 🙂

The truck reminded me of my childhood when there used to be an ice-cream push-cart. In Nepal, instead of ice-cream truck, we had manual carts which had to be pushed around.

They didn’t even sell fancy ice-creams like we get here but just ice blocks with flavoring and sugar but we still used to love it.

After school, we used to run to the ice-cream carts and get whatever we could afford. My favorite one was orange flavor.

Then we used to have kulfi carts. I used to love kulfis as it is denser and creamier.

My good old days and happy childhood memories!

Do you remember enjoying ice cream in your childhood? Is it different these days?

Mars Ice Cream

I am sure this is not a big deal for many of you but for us in Sydney it is. I had heard about the Mars Ice Cream for a while but couldn’t find it anywhere here but finally Woolworths started to stock them. I had my first taste of it today. I know I am supposed to be dieting but I really wanted to try it and I finally did.

And I loved it. The outside is same as the regular Mars bars with chocolate coating over caramel but inside the caramel is the ice cream. Yum yum yum…

The bars aren’t that big (8x3cm) and it has a shocking amount of carbohydrate and fat so definitely it is not something you can have all the time but once in a while indulgence should do no harm J

You can buy Snickers, Twix , M & M, Milkyway and Bounty Ice Cream too.

Do you like these ice cream chocolate bars?
