Project 41: October

Of course, my Project 41 companion for October was Trevor.  Our tradition of going to Baskin-Robbins for Trick OREO Treat ice cream every October is what inspired Project 41.  

 
Trick OREO Treat is vanilla ice cream with orange creme-filled Oreos and chunks of Baby Ruth and Butterfingers candy bars.  It's really yummy.  This year, it seemed like there were way fewer candy bar and cookie chunks mixed in than in years past.  (Check out this layout about last year's visit to compare pictures.)  It made me wonder how they suspend the pieces in a giant mixture and what efforts are made to be sure every scoop gets a reasonable amount of mix-ins.  It seems like it would be very hard to ensure consistency.

 
Here we are.  Trevor always chooses to get his ice cream in a cup instead of a cone, as it is neater.  I'm about 75/25 on cone vs. cup.

 
We had a wonderful time together, of course, as we always do.  It was nice to sit and enjoy a treat together and chat.  Thanks to Baskin-Robbins for Trick OREO Treat and the fun tradition Trevor and I have of enjoying it together every year!
