What was your favourite flavour of ice cream as a child and why?
When pigtails bobbed on my shoulders, a long time ago,
In the season when it was neither raining leaves nor snow,
I fancied ice cream, like every child would do,
However, you may ask, for what did I queue?
Was it the classic and boring vanilla?
Oh darling, no way, such a fun killer...
So, strawberry, so artificially pink?
Oh please, don't make my mood sink.
Then chocolate, the last one it has to be...
Well, you're getting closer and closer to me,
However, chocolate wasn't my favourite alone,
And I have to tell you,
My favourite was always tiramisu.
Why? I can't tell you, I simply liked the taste,
and vanilla and strawberry always went to the waste.
So utterly boring and unoriginally bland,
my taste wasn't even when I was still digging in sand.
What's your favourite flavour now?
Flavours of ice cream, there are aplenty,
some say ten, some fifteen, some even twenty.
In all colours, tastes and shapes they come,
vanilla, strawberry or cherry, to name some.
But there is the flavour you like best,
even though it's probably not the same that likes the rest.
That is why we have so many flavours from which to choose,
so that on the question which you like best, no one has to lose.
I, for instance, do like chocolate, amarena and tiramisu
But what is your favourite? What is it that enlightens you?
What flavour have you always wanted to invent?
From the many flavours mentioned above,
there are still many missing out which I would love.
Just imagine ice cream with the taste of profiteroles covered in choc,
or for the more grown ups under us, beer ice cream or one which tastes like whisky on the rock.
Personally, the ice cream to delight my taste and tongue,
Well, about that I needn't think for long.
The perfect ice cream, and I am sure you all agree,
would be one which tastes like more than three...
Imagine ten flavours in one, slowly melting in your mouth,
every flavour welcome, from chewing gum, schnitzel, pasta or lemon pie,
Greek ice cream, olives, anchovies and, for more exotic tastes, some Thai.
One scoop of everything you want and desire for your palate - though one we probably don't need is salad.
