What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Ben and Jerry's Phish Food.
Shortly before I took my then girlfriend, now wife home to the States for the first time, I told her about this fantastic ice cream company called Ben and Jerry's. She didn't really believe that any one brand of ice cream could be so far above any other…until she tried it.
I bought Phish Food, Chunky Monkey, and Cherry Garcia and took them home for a sugar-fest. My wife tried each of them as though she were a gourmet, taking a small bite and looking upward as she contemplated the various tastes and sensations brought on through each flavor. Finally, after a great deal of "thinking" (read "eating") she decided that for once, I knew what I was talking about and that B&J's was better than anything we have available in Japan.
Now I think it's her favorite part of going to the States. Before every trip, she calls my mom "Could you buy fish ice?" and Mom runs out to buy some Phish Food for us.
Mmmm. Phish food. Hungry now.
