Blue Moon

There are some colors of food that are so unlike anything in nature that I just can not bring myself to even try them. Blue Moon ice cream is a huge favorite flavor for young and old alike.  As the color of it reminds me of fabric softener – or that stuff you put down to get rid of mice – or toliet bowl cleaner, I simply will NOT eat it. 

When I was working at Cheesers (they sell the mighty tasty Babcock Ice Cream), I took an informal poll. These are the answers I received:  "Trix, Kool-Aide, cotton candy, licorice, Lucky Charms" … and that was just from the adults!  I asked two little girls.  One thought a moment and said "good."  The other, with two pig tails sprouting out of either side of her head, her feet dangling a foot from the floor and her eyes rolled up to look inside her mind said with much conviction, "blue."  Well, now that I know that – someday I will try it.
