What Is Your Favorite Frozen Treat?

It’s apparently quite hot here in New York City. I wouldn’t know because I refuse to leave the igloo I’ve created around my air-conditioner. But if I were to venture out onto the sizzling streets, the first thing I’d do is get me a huge bowl of mint chip ice cream… not a cone because in this weather that’s just asking for disaster.

But then I remember back to my days in servitude to the Dairy Queen and I recall that customers tastes ran from the predictable-yet-delicious (vanilla cone with chocolate sprinkles) to the bizarre (Blizzards with Nerds and hot fudge).

And there are so many more dessert options for cooling down on a hot day: Sorbet, sherbet, gelato, milk shakes, popsicles, ice cream sandwiches, shaved ice, Italian ice (or as I’ve spent decades calling it, “wudder ice”), frozen yogurt and way too many to list in a simple poll.

That’s why we want to hear from you about those frosty treats (including Frosties) that help you beat the heat.
