I don’t know about any of you, but even when it’s cold outside, it’s never to cold for me to want ice cream. Despite it’s frigid temperature, the delicious taste of a chocolate milkshake or a three-scoop, multi-flavor cone is enough to tempt me.
Which is why it’s so disappointing that Connecticut ice cream lovers might have to say a temporary goodbye to one of its most enjoyed frozen treats: The Drumstick.
Beloved by school students and children-at-heart everywhere, the Drumstick is a cafeteria vending machine classic. Vanilla ice cream. Chocolate shell. Peanut pieces garnish. It’s the perfect combination of dessert flavors.
Sadly, according to WTNH, that ingredient list may now include listeria. Drumsticks are being recalled by Nestle due to a potential listeria outbreak. Technically, no one has gotten sick yet, but Nestle isn’t willing to take the chance – they want their Drumsticks back.
And frankly, as sad as we are to see them go, we’re glad Nestle is being proactive. If, somehow, we were to get sick from a Drumstick and develop some kind of horrible aversion to the delicious treat, our lives would never be the same.
So thank you, Nestle. You’re protecting our health and protecting our love of your delicious ice cream treat. When you’ve cleared up this whole mess, we’ll welcome back the Drumstick with open arms and open mouths. After all, absence makes the tongue grow fonder.
