top 5 favorite fantastic ways to enjoy creamy whip

this top 5 is a homage to one of the most perfect foods in the universe, creamy whip. my mother is convinced if we could bring creamy whip to the people of the middle east, there would be peace.

the westside is inundated with creamy whip stands: buster's, putz's, keller's cone zone (formerly tummy treats), sweets and eats, general custer's last ice cream stand (i'm sure i'm forgetting some), and my particular favorite, the zip dip.

so here are my top 5 favorite fantastic ways to enjoy creamy whip, in all its glory:

- the twist cone. whether it be orange/vanilla or chocolate/vanilla, there's the sublime joy of the flavors mingling in your mouth.
- red dip. i think it's supposed to be cherry, but really it's that fabulous faux red-flavored solid shell. eat it fast. melting ice cream will seep through the cracks.
- oreo parfait. have you ever met a person, you say, "let's get some parfait," they say, "hell no, i don't like no parfait"? parfaits are delicious.
- jimmies. yeah, that's right, i said jimmies. that's 'sprinkles' for all you eastsiders.
- put it in a mini plastic baseball hat. sweet. just rinse it well before turning the hat over to the pug.

"What about cake? Cake's got layers! Everybody loves cake!"

I grew up on the East Side working at Aglamesis in Montgomery and we called sprinkles jimmies too, its not just a west side thing.

This post reminds me I have yet to introduce my 1 1/2 year old daughter to the wonder of creamy whip ice cream. Yeah for creamy whips!

Actually I have met such a person, and we work with her. Ann always gives me the most atrocious look when I eat strawberry parfait. There are some people I will never understand....
