Ice cream is an almost nightly thing in my house all year long.
But in the summer, it is an afternoon AND nightly thing in my house.
As a kid, I always favored Nestlé® Drumsticks®. There was always something magical about the chocolate-coated scoop of ice cream and the hidden chocolate in the bottom of the cone. I remember so many warm evenings when the ice cream truck would come by and I’d count my change in hopes that I had enough for a coveted Drumstick.
I love to share nostalgic memories like that with my son. We don’t get an ice cream truck where I live, but lucky for me I can keep a big box of Nestlé Drumstick cones in the freezer.
They’ve come such a long way from the Classic Vanilla Drumsticks I remember as a child. Now they’ve got amazing flavor combinations like Vanilla Caramel Crunch and Caramel Graham cones (both in the Lil’ Drums Caramel Delights variety pack, for when you want a smaller portion), and MY personal favorite, Pretzel Dipped Drumstick cones.
(There are tons of other fun flavors too. If you head over to the Nestlé Drumstick Facebook page, you can check them out and see pictures. You’ll want to buy them all!)
I still love the chocolate and peanut coating that I remember from my childhood, but my son refuses to eat anything with nuts. I was so excited to find their line of Simply Dipped cones, which have a plain layer of chocolate coating over vanilla, vanilla fudge, or mint ice cream.
Jon David was crazy about them!!
They’re so handy to keep in the fridge for a quick treat…no scooping required! Just grab and go.
Jon David was proud to demonstrate that he could also eat his Nestlé Drumstick while swinging from his favorite tree rope…and the scoop never fell off the cone.
What else does a kid need in life?
I’ll admit that there are days during the summer that I get busy doing chores and writing blog posts, and it’s nice to put my work aside for an hour, grab a couple of Nestlé Drumstick cones, and take Jon David out to play. I can’t wait to try out all the new flavors Drumstick has to offer. They’ll definitely be in steady supply in my house this summer!!
And it just so happens that I’ve got some great news. Nestlé wants to help you create some fun memories this summer too!! So…how does a $100 Walmart gift card sound?
