We’re on the cusp of summer; I can tell not by the temperature, but by the sound of the Ice Cream Man’s truck rolling through the neighborhood. As a kid, hearing the sound of the Ice Cream Man’s truck would cause you to instantly drop what you were doing and run home as fast as you could to grab a handful of change and try to catch that moving target of sub-zero goodness before he had moved on. Despite the fact that I’m in my late 30s, the sound of the ice cream man still makes me excited. Last night, he brought me this frozen treat:
“Tweety” is “a frozen confection with gumball eyes,” according to the treat’s label. Tweety is “orange and cherry” flavor. Let’s open it up and get to it!
Now, I wouldn’t go as far as to claim false advertising, but … I’ll be the first to admit that this doesn’t look much like the Tweety Bird of my youth. Right off the bat you can’t help but notice that it’s yellow and orange; if the orange is the orange flavor, does the yellow part taste like cherry? The head is roughly the right shape, but there’s something about the cold stare coming from those two blue gumballs and makes me wonder …
Just as I suspected. Tweety’s a zombie. A cold, sugar-filled, delicious zombie.
