Happy first days of summer! There are a couple rights of passage for an amazing summer — a brain freeze from cold treats, barbque sauce on a perfectly clean shirt, and a summer “glow” that comes from being in the sun way too much.
I tackled my first brain freeze with my sister at Pelican’s SnoBalls in that Charlotte area. It doesn’t matter how old I get, I still seem to find myself in the situation where the flavor is worth the pain (I know I’m not the only one). With over 100 flavors to mix and match, I knew I was going to endure the joy and pain of my first brain freeze of the season trying decided between a Bahama Mama, Pink Champagne, or a Mai Tai mixed with Fuzzy Monkey.
I went for the Mojito-Pink Lemonade Mix, and it was worth every brain freeze I had to laugh through. My sister and I had a competitive game of checkers while hanging around Pelican’s, but if that’s not your thing you can pick up any of the other board bags laying around or just relax in the big beach chairs that is up for grabs.
My next stop is Atlanta, and I already have a list of Snowball places I want to visit.
