One of my first memories in life was walking to the local ice cream shop.

In my case it was a Carvel, and it was walking distance to the apartment building complex we lived in.

We went there pretty often, so as far as the screem goes,

Carvel is my baseline.

When any of the neighborhood youth had a birthday party

you were sure to see a cookie puss or two

or if you were so fortunate

At some point the many Carvel shops in the Boston area went away and seemed to have left all those cakes in the frozen section of the supermarket.

The cakes were still available, but the shop had seemingly all but vanished.

The Beastie Boys made Cookie Puss a little famous,

for a few short lived years before the millenium, and that was kind of that, for Carvels exposure to the lime-light.

I don't know anybody who has purchased a carvel ice cream cake since the shops disappeared, and I'm pretty sure when you get the cake from out of the frozen isle display cases,

they are somehow served sans l'essance de Carvel. Im not sure why . ALL I know is, the cakes from the supermarkets or convenience stores are somehow ... "less than".

Here in the store, I was getting pretty excited about all the frozen possibilities, as well as a bit nostalgic. While passing through Connecticut, I have to admit,I was surprised to see this freeze baked relic. As it were, I was definitely pretty zooted from this Lemon Haze I was smoking on,

and so I was unable to not, not brake, for CookiePuss.

nobody wanted to go in on a Cookie O'Puss with me. It is well established that these cakes don't travel well, (outside of a freezer) so i kept it real with the little Ice cream sandwich circle, just like back in the day.
