Whippy Dip

Saturday night we eagerly waited for the last you-pick customers to finish picking and haul their buckets to the barn. Then we locked the door and headed to the Whippy Dip for our end-of-the-blueberry-season ice cream celebration. True to our tradition, it was dark by the time we enjoyed our treat. But it was worth the wait, especially since the soft-serve flavor for the week was root beer!


  1. (note to Arizona Aunt)

    I chose chocolate.


  2. Good thinking 989cookie....why waste sweets on something other than chocolate!

  3. I like your blog, I´m one of this
    "silent watcher" and I look almost
    everyday if you wrote a new blog.

    Icecream with rootbeer-flavour... o_o
    By the way, the most european don´t like
    rootbeer. haha, like me!

    Greets from Germany,

  4. Thanks for commenting Sabine. My aunt from Brazil doesn't like root beer either. She says it tastes like medicine.

    But I really like it, especially with ice cream. Sometimes we put a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a glass and cover it with root beer. Root beer floats or "brown cow." Yummy. That's what the soft-serve root beer ice cream tasted like.

  5. One of my favorite treats is a 'brown cow.' What a nice reward for your hard work at the blue berry farm!
