It took awhile but summer finally hit Montesano. Randy Johnson, owner of “The Frosty Cow” hit the streets today. He can begin hitting Monte as early as March. Not this year as cold as it has been, as we all know. June 1st, well, better than no summer at all. Watch and listen for the Frosty Cow mobile on Sundays here in Monte, but Randy says he might start adding another day. Have a special event, give Randy a call at 360-533-5446 – rumor has it he can make balloon animals too.
PRODUCT REVIEW: The Blue Bunny Orange Dream Bar. At first glance one would not be able to discern the Bunny Bar from more common fare found on the shelves in the local grocery store, or gasp, a last resort – the dreaded gas station display. At first glance that is, appearances can be deceiving.
The wrapper itself is well made, requiring several tugs with the teeth. In the case of us elder connoisseurs, moving to the back teeth for leverage to tear an opening sufficient to get your fingers into. The effort is worth it as you are immediately met with a a familiar cream and subtle orange scent. I must make note here that modern manufacturers have gone heavily into more orange and less cream in the last 40 years. A mistake in my opinion. But I digress.
Properly frozen the gleaming bar radiates its refreshing coolness, almost….almost causing your eager lips to stick ever so gently to the waiting bar. Just briefly. The instant creamy sensation at first swirls, then vaults into your mouth not fighting the orange, yet working in harmony with it. The way an orange cream bar should be. You know instantly that this isn’t your normal orange cream bar, taken with haste from the grocery store as your wife tells you to hurry up. It is, in fact, a Dream Bar. And you begin to savor.
Perhaps the most notable point is that as you bite your way down, slowing to appreciate every last bite, you notice that there is no licking and slurping as the bar runs down the stick onto your fingers. Is this the design of the bar itself? or as I expect the freezing element contained within the Frosty Cow? Randy would never give away his trade secrets and I have the good manners not to ask.
While there may be better Orange Cream Bars out there, they would be hard to find, and perhaps it is just wishful thinking. I give the bar 4 and 1/2 stars. The Bunny Bar can be found on better Ice Cream Trucks and discerning stores across the country.
NOTE: anyone making personal attacks for my support of ice cream, or against ice cream, for or against the mobile transportation of said ice cream or people with an agenda against milking cows and the manufacture of wooden sticks…… will be banned from the site.
