There’s no time like the present — especially when I scream and you scream and we all scream for ice cream. Let’s be creatures of reason, though: If there’s screaming of any kind involved, I fully recommend expediting the administration of ice cream to soothe the victim back into a state of blissful calm. Life’s too short, and you wouldn’t want to skip dessert as you’re shuffling off your mortal coil, would you? Why count calories when the future’s uncertain?
Okay, fine. In our case, it was gelato, which does usually have a slightly lower caloric count than ice cream if you really want to be a spoilsport about it. Grumble all you want, but it’s freaking delicious! It’s sort of like the Italian version of ice cream, and when was the last time you refuted the deliciousness quotient of Italian cuisine? Never, I’ll bet! Ever! Whether you prefer ice cream or gelato, though, one thing’s for sure: enjoying it in the company of good people maximizes its beneficial effects. In this vlog, we enjoyed our gelato with Andrew Vest and Andy Karuza from brandbuddee.com, and among good people, they match with the finest.
Ice cream? Gelato? Whatever. Heck, I’ll even chow down on some frozen yogurt (also delicious, and even lower in calories) under the right circumstances. If you’re really, really, really insisting on eating an ice cream-like, frozen dessert substance that doesn’t ensure that you’re going to pack on the pounds in spite of massive consumption (like De Niro in Raging Bull), I’ve had Arctic Zero recommended to me — which promises no more than 150 calories per an entire pint! Presumably, it’s spun by magical polar unicorns from the fur of faerie seals, and the maple vanilla flavor is reminiscent of cake batter ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery. It sounds pretty far-fetched, I know, but stranger things have happened.
