I cannot remember the brand of ice cream that came out with the bubblegum flavored treat many years ago. The color was mint green and pink, and the plastic cone shaped container contained a gum ball at the bottom. The frozen treat was discontinued for a while and during that long dry stretch of the bubblegum ice cream missing from supermarket freezers, yours truly turned to Dipping Dots for a dose of bubblegum goodness.
Coffee crumble and pistachio and mint chocolate chip still rank above bubblegum in the scale of my favorite flavors, but ice cream is ice cream. Bubblegum ice cream is special. Bubblegum ice cream brings me back to happier days. Never mind that the milky treat is full of artificial colors and flavor; bubblegum ice cream is bubblegum ice cream. It's comforting and as indulgent as, say, cotton candy.
Naturally, a cone made me very happy for today.
