Most of us don’t enjoy being stuck with the end of anything. However, I’m on a quest to show that the end of an Uncle Harry’s Ice Cream Roll is actually something to be desired. I recently proved this theory by stacking my Cookies ‘N’ Cream Ice Cream Roll up against the experience of standing at the end of a line.
Some out there may think that this was an oddity in the world of being stuck with the end of something. Today I’ll present further proof by showing that the end of an Uncle Harry’s Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Roll is better than the heel of a loaf of bread.
Up first, the heel. For anyone who has gone to make a sandwich only to find two heels identifies with the complete letdown experienced. You go from looking forward to your sandwich to channeling the inner child within who says, “ahhh, do I gotta eat it?” It’s no accident that this word also defines someone who is a cad. Who else would take the last good slices of bread and leave only the heels, but a heel.
Contrast that with opening a box of Uncle Harry’s Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Roll only to find the entire roll eaten except for the ends. You don’t curse the one who dug into this treat before you. Instead you wonder who could have been so kind, generous and thoughtful as to leave the ends for you to enjoy.
Oh, sure, that particular person gobbled up the majority of the roll. They savored every bite of premium peanut butter and chocolate ice cream marbled together and topped with chocolate cookie crunch. But to leave the ends? The ends are where one finds the majority of the chocolate cookie crunch. It’s one bite after another of ice cream and chocolate cookie crunch together. Whoever left the ends borders on being a saint.
The next time you go to make a sandwich and find only two heels, immediately go to the freezer to see what’s left of your Uncle Harry’s Peanut Butter Ice Cream Roll. What you find will determine if a certain someone is a keeper.
