Is ice cream in the winter really a bad thing?



Contrary to popular belief, people should be able to enjoy a cold cone of ice cream during the winter.

You’re out with your friends and it’s 20 degrees outside. Hands are numb, the wind is brisk, everybody’s holding onto each other just to feel some kind of warmth. But there’s something about that scoop of vanilla ice cream in a waffle cone that just sounds so good to you. The creaminess, the perfect balance of sweetness, the way that it melts on your tongue, you can’t help but listen to your cravings. You pass by an ice cream store and you don’t want to let the opportunity pass so you ask away, “How does ice cream sound to you guys?”
You wait for a response but you only see their jaws dropping to the floor. Before you try to explain yourself, one by one, your friends take turns in bashing you. You laugh because you think it’s a joke but you’ve never seen such judgment coming from their eyes. Actually offended, you end up isolating yourself from your friends and spend the evening longing for that large ice cream cone.
It goes without saying. When the cold seasons take place, you eat warm foods. It’s all part of your body’s natural instinct. It’s also just common sense. Think of it this way: when it’s summertime and it’s 90 degrees, are you seriously going to eat a steamy bowl of chicken noodle soup? No! That’s just wrong…right?
Contrary to popular belief, ice cream actually can and should be eaten during the winter.
To start, you don’t have to eat ice cream outside in the freezing weather. That’s always the first thing you hear. “It’s too cold for that”. What if the house was 70 degrees inside? If you think about it, it’s a great topping for a warm crispy piece of apple pie and you know you’d want a taste of that. Or maybe you don’t, but hear me out with my next piece of reasoning.
It doesn’t melt! At least not as fast as it would in the blazing heat. You’re no longer in a rush when you’re standing in the cold with a cone which gives you plenty of time to enjoy that scoop even more. To all those out there going through a rough breakup, I know you need your comfort food. Don’t be afraid to embrace that temptation of buying a tub of ice cream. It’s desperately waiting for you on aisle 14 and you don’t have to worry about your favorite flavor running out because who eats ice cream in the winter anyways?
If you’re a fellow ice cream lover especially when it comes to the cold seasons, I’m with you on this one. It’s the perfect example of a dessert that never goes out of season. If you’re someone who has yet to experience what it’s like, by all means go for it! I promise you won’t be disappointed and in the end you’ll never want to stop eating ice cream in the winter ever again!
