Dear Beecher’s Ice Cream,
I can’t believe you are leaving me again. I was a fool to think you would stay this autumn.
I still remember the first time we met. It was my sixth month in this city and I still felt lost. I barely arrived home because I was so focused on your rich chocolate praline ice cream that I stepped into traffic.
That entire summer I basked in a butter pecan afterglow and felt like a child sitting on your concrete haunches with an M&M brownie waffle cone.
Beecher’s closes for the season on Sunday, October 4. Stock up while you still can!
