Last week I had to get a cavity filled for the first time in my life. I blame switching toothpastes and quitting chewing sugar-free gum for this pesky little problem. After you read this post you might be like, “Umm, maybe it’s all this ice cream/sugar you’re consuming?” Okay, fair enough. But I’d argue that A.) it’s not that much, and B.) I needed to eat something soft and cold since my mouth stayed numb for probably 6 hours after I got the Novocain. The sun was shining and it was about time for me to try one of the last flavors on my ice cream bucket list: Orange Pineapple.
I got a scoop of chocolate chip, too, so the vanilla flavor from that mixed with the orange pineapple ended up being kind of like an orange creamsicle. Brought me back to my childhood when I’d get one of those from the ice cream truck at the beach (if I wasn’t in the mood for my usual sno-cone.) I liked this overall, but I don’t think I’d get the chocolate chip again because there are much better options at this particular place, which is the very same place where I had a lovely cup of White Pistachio and Black Raspberry Chip. As far as the orange pineapple goes, I’m glad I tried it. It wouldn’t be my first choice every time, but would get it again if I were ever in the mood.
Also, I have switched back to my trusty Colgate 2-in-1 toothpaste and am hoping I won’t have any more dental problems in the future as a result.
