My friend Caroline and I, who met my junior year of college, joke that we’ve known each other since birth. We had a instant kinship the first day we met in journalism class.
We also both had dogs named Booger. I mean, come on — what are the chances?
Caroline was also the first person I thought of when I read about the booger-flavored ice cream that’s for sale this summer at The Ice Cream Store in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
If you immediately thought “Gross,” you’re probably not the target market. Kids are. And they have made the snotty-sounding flavor the second most popular at the shop. Actually, “Booger” sounds pretty good once you hear the ingredients. It’s made with cake batter that’s tinted booger green with swirls of caramel and little Lucky Charms marshmallows.
I’m up for anything with caramel in it. And customers say it tastes a lot better than it looks.
Oh — the number one flavor is something called “Ooey Gooey,” which contains Oreos, caramel and fudge.
Wonder what that looks like…
