Out of the Box Ways to Eat Ice Cream

So if you’re on FYI Delray’s website, you are probably a pretty big fan of ice cream. But in what ways are you used to eating it? Perhaps you like it in a cone or cup. Or maybe in a bowl, as a sundae, with hot fudge and nuts and whipped cream and a cherry. Perhaps you have heard of more inventive ice cream ideas such as ice cream sandwiches and ice cream cakes. But have you heard of our fun-loving ice-cream ideas expressed below? Probably not.

One awesome ice cream idea we love is making ice cream sandwiches but using variations on the classic sandwich part of the recipe. Of course, for the ice cream you can very well use whatever you want, including a flavor found at FYI Delray, including: vanilla, chocolate, almond praline, stellar coffee, double fudge brownie, cookies and cream, peanut butter cup, cookie dough, butter pecan, fudge track, mint chocolate chip, rum raisin, strawberry, chocolate chip, superman, birthday cake, cotton candy, pistachio, banana cream pie and black cherry vanilla. Furthermore, yogurt selections entail: vanilla, chocolate, cookies and cream, nutella, coffee and peanut butter. Once you have your yogurt or ice cream selections picked out, you can make the sandwiches with a variety of cookies or in some cases, with cereal. Your perfect cereal will probably be the perfect consistency for an ice cream sandwiches. Some popular cereals used for this creation include: lucky charms, raisin bran, cheerios, frosted flakes, captain crunch, cinnamon toast crunch and more. Really, the sky is the limit for your fun and innovative ice cream sandwich.

Another great idea is putting ice cream into more classic desserts. Of course we know about ice cream cakes, which are a great idea for a children’s birthday party. But the adults want something too. And sometimes it's nice to have a sophisticated, frozen treat. This is where creme brulee ice cream comes in. What is creme brulee ice cream you might ask? Well, it’s ice cream but better. And it’s creme brulee but better. Basically, it's a recipe that calls for egg yolks, granulated sugar, salt, heavy cream, whole milk, vanilla bean, and sometimes, turbinado sugar. It’s the best of both world- both the world of cold and warm desserts. Heat miser and mr. snow!

If you don’t like creme brulee don’t despair. There is always another option right around the corner at FYI Delray. You can indulge yourself with ice cream, Protein Shakes, Birthday Cakes, Sundaes, Pies, Banana Splits, Milkshakes and Candies, as all are available at FYI Delray. Additionally, you can engage in indulging without the guilt afterwards, as we offer fat free, low fat, dairy free, vegan  and sugar free variations on our famous, delicious ice cream.

Pop Culture Screams for Ice Cream

Who was it that said life imitates art? Well, whoever it was, that sentiment is definitely true in regards to ice cream. Popular culture is inundated with ice cream references and eating in general and we don’t know about you, but so are our personal lives. So does life imitate art or does art imitate life is the real question? Well, whatever the answer is to this chicken or the egg scenario, we know one thing- we love ice cream and we love it being represented in our favorite books, movies and TV shows. So here are a bunch of pop culture moments showing celebs and characters eating amazing ice cream. It’ll have you saying, “omg I totally relate."

 

The Simpsons:

This fixture in American TV has lots of running jokes on ice cream, but we personally love the episode “Lisa on Ice” the best. In this episode, we see baby Bart and a baby Lisa share a magical ice cream experience. We don’t know about you guys, but here at FYI Delray, we can totally relate to the magical, ice-cream filled moment Burt and Lisa shared.

 

Steven Universe:

In this beloved show on Cartoon Network, “Cookie Cats” are constantly being made. These ice-cream related delicacies made such a ruckus for fans of the show, that they were made at New York’s Comic Con festival, to celebrate the success of the program.

 

Full House:

Is it just us, or is baby Michelle Tanner always eating ice cream? Well, no matter the truth, Michelle (played by twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) is a girl after our own heart and we think it’s a hoot watching her gobble our favorite frozen treat.


 

Roman Holiday:

Okay, when we see classic beauty Audrey Hepburn chomping on a gelato cone in the famous movie, Roman Holiday, we really wanted one too. If you are craving some gelato like Audrey, look no further than FYI Delray. We have a lot of gelato offerings, including; dark chocolate, chocolate hazelnut, caramel macchiato, cookies and cream, sea salt caramel and stracciatella.


 

Seinfeld:

This wildly popular sitcom features a wildly popular treat- ice cream. If you haven’t seen the famous episode “The Lip Reader,” you’re missing out on some quintessential George costanza hijinks, featuring our favorite frozen treat.

Self Care and Ice Cream: a Love Story

Self Care and Ice Cream: a Love Story


In our last blog we talked about self-love as it applies to new year’s resolutions. In this blog post, we will talk about fun self-care ideas that just might involve ice cream. As we talked about in the previous blog post, the conception of self-care is a relatively new, primarily millennial term. But, it’s something anyone can, and should, partake in. Self care is a part of self love that basically entails giving yourself time, rejuvenation, love, introspection and more. Life, especially these days, is so fast-paced and hectic. And while self care can be a part of regular life- like saving money, paying your bills, working hard at your job, most people choose to focus on and document the more fun parts of self care, obviously.

There are a lot of different examples of self care, because there are a lot of ways in which people like to escape the world. However, it’s important to note that another part of self care, the more mundane part, like we discussed, is creating a life that you don’t want to take breaks from all the time. You should be able to enjoy your career, life, friendships, romances, whatever 2018 has in store for you! But hard times are inevitable in this life, and when they strike you should have a few tricks up your sleeve to help yourself feel better. Self care is as individualistic as the concept of self. So whoever you are and whatever comprises you, there is a self care routine that is best for you. You should know that you don’t have to be rich or have to be anything really, to engage in proper self care and love. You just have to have the mindfulness to create expressions of self love for yourself. Some ideas include: starting a compliments file, engaging in your to-do list, go cloud watching, goof around and just laugh either with yourself or others, de-clutter a room or space you often use, get out of your comfort zone, take a break from social media or unfollow negative people (this may conflict with the idea that you have to share your self care rituals via your social networking forums), create a habit that’s good for you like going to the gym, pay attention to an activity that you usually do without thinking (eating, etc), take a different route to work, your gym, or somewhere else you regularly visit, or develop a deep breathing routine.

Another part of self care is doing things you don’t necessarily need to, but deserve to do. This is the art of treating yourself. Many people treat themselves with a spa day, many with a glass of wine, many with a mini-vacation. But here at FYI Delray, we like to treat ourselves with ice cream and we would be delighted for you to join us. Have a scoop of one of our many flavors today and start the self love you deserve in 2018!
