It's been damn hot here lately, and that's putting it mildly...um, 104º anyone?
So, the other day I was perusing the ice cream aisle at my neighborhood grocery and happened upon a new Haagen Daz "Reserve" flavor, Fleur de Sel Caramel. I was intrigued to say the least. The description; Fleur de Sel caramels covered in a chocolaty coating blended into caramel ice cream with carmel ribbons and, here's the best part, French sea salt accents. Are you kidding me? How could one possibly go wrong? And, there I was in the check out line clutching my precious little jewel. Later that evening...oh, who am I kidding?, I dove right in the second I got home, and it was DIVINE. I think I polished off the entire container (yeah, sure it's dainty) in 2 days and was back at the grocer looking for more. Much to my dismay, the shelves were empty. I searched for weeks to no avail. Fleur de Sel Caramel was proving to be quite elusive. This was not good. I finally found the perfect ice cream and now it was unavailable? After several weeks of checking and rechecking the ice cream aisle I finally marched into that neighborhood grocery all set to speak with the manager and make sure that Haagen Daz flavor would be ordered and on the next shipment...when, much to my surprise, there it was...and on sale no less! I must say I am one happy woman.
