Hunka Chunka Hubba Hubba
My sister knows dessert.
Not only is she an unbelievably talented pastry chef, but she is also quite the connoisseur, able to sniff out only the best of the many mass-produced sweets. Margy thinks she should be a dessert developer.
Sis's current favorite is Friendly's Hunka Chunka Peanut Butter Fudge ice cream. In fact, she swears her fierce devotion to this variety led to its elevation from ephemeral flavor of the month to permanent fixture on Friendly's ice cream menu. She insists on serving Hunka Chunka drizzled with Friendly's peanut butter sauce, which is a sweeter, more viscous version of regular peanut butter. Sis says she's tried to make something similar herself but has yet to figure out Friendly's secret. (My guess is that the secret involves chemicals.)
So after finally spending a day outside in the warm sunshine, we ordered another round of pizzas and capped the last night of our Vermont jaunt with a little Hunka Chunka PB Fudge. We even got to watch the Yankees beat the Red Sox from our post on enemy territory (that is, New England). All was well in the world.
