The Penguin!

We’d driven by this several times (with me casting wistful looks out the car window) on the way to watch WCN play ball. Eventually it worked out to stop!! Yay!

P1020160Besides it being ice cream, there was the name. I couldn’t pass up The Penguin. I’m not sure why, but I have a soft spot for them.

Fun decor.

Even the bench was ice-creamy!

More penguinness. There was also a penguin face on the machine, but I missed getting a shot of that - the person running it kept getting in the way.

A bewildering array of choices. Gah!

I eventually decided on Cherry Vanilla. Which in my mind is Vanilla, with Cherries. That is, two individually identifiable components, well, mostly that the cherries are whole cherries still. I didn’t take in to consideration (I’d not done the custom mix thing before) that what happens is everything gets ground/mixed up together so it was definitely cherry flavored, but then just flecks of fruit. Still tasty, just different from expectation. Made me curious about some of the other flavors that I would normally think of as chunky – how would those come out with this method? – but didn’t get a chance to go back.
