Chocolate and vanilla

If you're a child of the 70s, it's likely that you'll remember the simpler days of grocery store ice cream selection. Simpler in the way fewer choices sense, I mean. You had your big three, then maybe butterscotch ripple, mint chocolate, or black cherry - if you were lucky - and that was about it.

My favourite of all was neopolitan. Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry all packed together in one tub; cold, sweet ribbons of tri-coloured bliss.

I always eschewed the boring vanilla and dug for the treasured chocolate and strawberry instead, which both tasted so good each slightly melted into the other.

Because it's never to cold for ice cream (even on a Canadian Saturday in January), today's block is an homage to my two favourite flavours in the neopolitan tub.

We always had neopolitan ice cream in the freezer growing up too. The strawberry and chocolate were usually gone well before the vanilla. Poor vanilla - LOL!
