Before I moved to New York, a good friend told me about how she had become obsessed with a kind of ice cream called "Tasti-D-Lite." I kind of laughed at her and said, "Okay...." not understanding how someone could become so fanatic about a frozen dessert. How can someone eat a form of ice cream nearly everyday??? "But it's like no-fat and has practically no calories!" my friend gushed. You may have seen that episode from Seinfeld about the frozen yogurt that everyone goes crazy about b/c it's supposedly no-fat...then a sample of it gets dumped into Giuliani's blood work and it turns out to be ridiculous for your cholesterol. Well, that episode was really about Tasti-D-Lite (affectionately called "Tasti" or TastiD"), and it turns out that New Yorkers are really that insane over the 40 cal, 99% fat free frozen delight. Oh, and really is cholesterol-free.
Given that not a single day goes by that I don't think about having that cold, creamy goodness, I may officially be a New Yorker! My friends from grad school are equally as enamored w/ TastiD, and we seek the nearest location every time we go out. There's so much excitement in discovering a new location or tasting a new flavor! In my enrapturement, I decided to document this love affair in pictures and blogspace. Here are some pictures to attest to this addiction:
