Seasonal Schmeasonal (or the Kvetchings of an Ice Cream Addict)

A’right, eggnog is considered seasonal.  Fine.  That’s a fairly commonly held belief.  Most people don’t drink it if it’s not the holiday season, so why sell it?  I surrender.  If I really need to feed an eggnog craving, I’ll make some if I have to.  BUT (oh yeah, it’s a big ‘but’), color me righteously indignant about Trader Joe’s decision to call their tart frozen yogurt seasonal.  I am a diehard ice cream and frozen yogurt fan.  There is no such thing as seasonal, in my book, when it comes to ice cream and fro-yo… so the concept of seasonal tart frozen yogurt just rubs me the wrong way.  Especially when the freezer compartment where the tart frozen yogurt should be (sniff, sniff…) is chock full of other ice creams and frozen yogurt as well as frozen fruit pops.  Is it seasonal because it’s tart (is that anti-tart discrimination? : ) or do they have data to back up their decision to pull the tart frozen yogurt?  Inquiring minds — especially some frozen-dessert-addicted ones — want to know?

Of course, if the store ever was to pull all of their ice cream and frozen yogurt (I’d say they can keep the fro-rice dessert, but I’d probably sound like I was mocking the vegan or those with dairy allergies) for the winter, I’d probably collapse into a sobbing heap on the floor.  And then I’d put on my hat, coat, gloves and head out to search for ice cream.  I’ve done that in the middle of a blizzard.  I’m not proud.


About deb

Wandering and wondering - taking it all in -- and increasingly shaking my head. Who are we and how did we get to this here? And, what, where and how next? Putting what I see and think out there in pictures and always looking for other ways, hence, this blog. This blog, like me, is a work in process and still doesn't quite know what it wants to be when it grows up.
