Who You Calling Honey... Ain't Nothin' Better Than Vanilla Honey & Granola
OK... I am not a huge fro yo fan. Frozen yogurt has never really been my thing. I lived in LA during the whole Pinkberry explosion and I have to confess that I am not a fan... the flavour just about killed it for me no matter how many things I added... it just tasted like yogurt. Which don't get me wrong -- yogurt isn't bad -- but it is not a dessert in any way shape or form.
So, I think, I went on a Fro Yo Rebellion of sorts. It became my brussel sprouts (note: this is something I hated in my childhood but have recently come to love if fried up with garlic and butter and bacon because bacon makes everything better... but that is a story for another time). Anyway, back to the great Fro Yo Rebellion of 2007. This carried on like all non-violent protests for quite some time... well into 2008.
Then one day, I was walking through the frozen food aisle in the supermarket and I decided I wanted something sweet. Now I have a crazy sweet tooth, I have been known to kill an entire cake all by myself, so I have to be sensitive to what this craving. I also live alone -- although at the time this was not true, I was living with The Beast (what we all called my old roommate, but that too is a story for another time) -- and I decided I need to make a healthier choice if I could. This usually leads me to pick up a pint of sorbet... but you see, I love HONEY. Honey is the best and it is so under appreciated.
So what happens you ask?
Well this pint of Haagen-Dazs Vanilla Honey + Granola Yogurt starts making eyes at me. You know the type. You are standing there minding your own business and then suddenly you feel like someone is staring at you... you look around... and bam there they are chasing you all with their eyes. Well, this is exactly what this little pint of Haagen Dazs was doing to me.
I looked at it intently for a spell. I mean just as I don't usually go for blonds... I don't really do this whole yogurt things.. at least that is what my mind was telling me. But you see, I told you I do love me some HONEY... similar to the way I love a quick wit... and granola... well that just made it sound so healthy. I was sold. And that's where it all started... this crazy, head over heels, love affair I am having with... of all things... Haagen Dazs Vanilla Honey + Granola Yogurt.
I am alone? Please tell me I am not the only one.
