Mikey is a friend of my friend and I just discovered (via my friend) that Mikey is onto something. Something very likely sinful. Something addictive. Something delicious!
Mikey tells my friend how he does mango in his house, and I gotta tell ‘ya I’m miffed I didn’t discover it myself. Here’s what Mikey does.
Mikey ventures out to the grocery store and casually selects some mangoes. Then, he sneaks over to the frozen foods aisle (and no, he’s not looking for brussel sprouts) and looks both ways. The diet police are nowhere in sight. Coast clear, he reaches into the freezer and pulls out (insert drum roll) Haagen-Dazs Mango Ice Cream. GASP!!!!!!!!
Hello Jesus! The mere thought of this mango-mango combo sends me into my own kind of resurrection! I can’t concentrate. Life on earth stops. I must, I must be Mikey’s disciple and follow the leader. I would have done it sooner, but I never knew about this mango dream team! How long has this wonder of a product been on the market? Oh, the torture of what I’ve missed through my ignorance! But I can’t look back. I must, must forgive myself. Put my oversight behind me and begin anew.
Bear witness, my dear mango friends, to my new inspiration. I have been saved by the mango-mango combo. Let’s just call it Amazing Grace. Shazam, it’s good! The best deal of all is that this is not just “mango flavored” ice cream. Haagen-Dazs actually went to the trouble of putting perfectly ripe, perfectly sized pieces of mango into the mix! So not only do I get fresh mangoes on top, but I get fresh mangoes inside the ice cream. YUMMMM. Thanks Haagen-Dazs, and thanks Mikey! (and thanks to the sacrificial mango of the day!)
(I got my Haagen-Dazs at Safeway)
Oh yes, and let me add: I’m firm believer in the notion that one good thing leads to another. For all you non-dairy folks, I’ve got something good for you too! Stay tuned.
