Our Strawberry Blonde at Cold Stone


On a recent trip to Waikiki, I found this awesome chain of ice cream shops called, The Cold Stone Creamery.

I order "Our Strawberry Blonde," a concoction of two scoops strawberry ice cream, graham cracker pie crust, strawberries, caramel and whipped topping. Holy crap, no wonder everyone in the States is hefty!

They take the scoops of ice cream and mix the rest of the ingredients together and mould it back into the bowl or a sugar or waffle cone. Brilliant. Eistein couldn't have thought of a better invention. Check out their menu here. (Sadly, there aren't any locations in Canada as of yet.) But man, why couldn't Baskin Robbins or Dairy Queen get more creative like this? They'd have to wheel me out of the store. Or stack me on my Segway like Gob on Arrested Development.

Oh, another reason why Americans are so fat:
