Sweet vs salty

By mid-morning, Facebook was filled with status updates about ice cream.

Heck — it’s summer.  It’s hot.  Ice cream always sounds good. And since today is National Ice Cream Day, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that everyone is focused on this cold, creamy delight.

But did you know that today is also National Caviar Day?

Yep.  That salty, fishy, icky treat of the upper class has its national holiday on the same day.  But so far, I haven’t seen any Facebook status updates celebrating caviar.

Fishy.

I certainly think my friends are upper class.  But perhaps, like me, the thought of eating fish eggs on a cracker doesn’t have the same appeal…especially when the really good stuff — Beluga caviar — cost $150 an ounce.

I can buy an awful lot of ice cream for that amount of money. And a hot dog…and a hamburger…and a movie ticket…and a cab ride home.

I think we have a winner.

Happy National Ice Cream Day!

  2. Happy Ice Cream Day! Definite, ice cream trumps caviar for me. I love ice cream! :)

  3. I guess I’ll have to be the one to wish FB Happy Caviar Day, as I’d take caviar over ice cream any day. In my case, it’s nothing to do with class, as carviar falls right next to scrapple on my list of fave foods. At age 2, my son ate half an ounce of Beluga one Christmas Eve and cried when it ran out.
