The Best Frozen Yogurt Flavor On The Planet

Right around this time of year, every year, I get an incurable craving pang for my favorite ice cream: JP Lick's Oatmeal Cookie frozen yogurt.  (Please note; I don't toss around the term "favorite" frequently) Without fail, I know that summer is undoubtedly here because about a half an hour or so, on a hot evening right after I've finished up dinner, I start to get the urge to take a little stroll down to JP Licks and before I know it, my Sox hat is on and I'm well on my way there.  It's like clockwork.

Tonight was the first of those nights and I couldn't help but childishly grin down at my little cup of ice cream.  The flavor of this particular kind is unbeatable, untouchable and unreal.  It's kind of like a ground up oatmeal cookie in cold, smooth ice cream form.  With hints of warm cinnamon, and microscopic bits of oatmeal cooking swirling around, it hits your tongue with a velvety touch and then satisfyingly bounces off your taste buds.  

I've come to notice that I tend to walk a little quickly to JP Licks with a sort of "eyes on the prize" pace and the goal of getting this sweet treat in my hands and down to my belly.  However, the walk home looks a little different.  It's more of a slow and leisurely stroll that allows me to enjoy each bite as I walk.  I even get little twinge of sadness when I can start to see the bottom of the cup; the sure sign that the enjoyment of my little treat is coming to a end.  Throwing the cup away, I'm already looking forward to the next time my craving strikes.

Oatmeal cookie YOGURT??? Love it! I've only seen it and ice cream form and while tasty- a bit more of a "treat" than yogurt! I feel an addiction coming on....
