According to Poppytalk, it's National Ice Cream Day. I have yet to indulge in ice cream (yet!) today but I did snap a few pics yesterday in Fredericksburg at Carl's Ice Cream. At Carl's the custard-y ice 'creme' is sold in chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. I had the chocolate and it was rich, not too heavy and had a distinct chocolate syrup flavor. Delicious! The prices fit the retro building and the serving sizes, while also from a pre-super-size-me time, are fair for the price. Plus the cashiers wear old-fashioned ice cream parlor hats and the service is crazy fast. Next time you pass through Fredericksburg, check out this local institution.
