I believe that I have mentioned in past blogs that I have one weakness, or I suppose you could call it a vice. (OK, maybe I have more than one but I can’t think of any others right now.) My weakness is for Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream:
Oh my, just looking at the carton makes my mouth water. (Slurp, slurp.) So, you ask, what does my favorite ice cream have to do with Cracker-Jacks? Well, I am getting around to telling what they have in common. I done did find a prize in the ice cream. I was sitting on the couch watching TV last night and eating what was left of the ice cream. Why is it that the very last bite in the container always tastes the best? Anyway, I bit down on something hard. I just figured that it was a piece of ice, so bit a little harder and OUCH, it was not ice. Got it dug out of my mouth and cleaned it up and found it was a bright shiny piece of metal, probably 304 stainless steel, since that is what the food industry uses. Don’t believe me, well I took pictures. Take a look at these:
I called the Blue Bell Corporate Office and talked to a nice lady. I first told her that I believed that I have single handedly kept them in business for the last few years, and that I loved their ice cream. Then I told her that I found a little prize in the last half gallon and went on to explain what it was and that I could send them pictures; I figured they would want to know. She said that they did want to know and will send me an envelope to put it in and return it to them so that they could figure out where it came from or what it came off of.
Now that I finished that half gallon, I guess I will have to go get another. Think I may be more careful before I swallow from now on. It didn’t upset me. I know things break and their ice cream is of the highest quality. Can’t wait to dig into another container, but really don’t want to find any prizes.
You all have a great day now, you hear?
