Ice Cream in Winter

Is it me or does ice cream hold more of an allure when it is outside? I love curling up on the couch with a bowl of the creamy cold stuff under a blanket. Popsicles are great for warm summer days, but I mainly reserve my ice cream for cold winter nights. I also like the special flavors that come out this time year - pumpkin pie, ginger bread, peppermint stick. Today at the store I picked up a pint of a new limited edition flavor from Haagen-Dazs: Caramelized Pear & Toasted Pecan. Goodness is this good stuff - smooth and creamy with an assertive pear flavor which tastes real and not sweet. If you click over to the web site, you'll see this was a winner in the flavor search contest. Much more imaginative than I would have been.
