Happy Mother's Day! As this is my first one as a mother, it is certainly special. BJ was away this morning at our dear friend's graduation (Congrats S!) so the Luce and I decided to check out the Columbia Pike farmer's market in Arlington that just happened to have a food truck vendor....funny how that worked out that way.... We took a stroll around the small, but busy market and saw the Pleasant Pops freezer cart positioned right in the center. A nice young man told me his favorites for the day were the pina colada and Chongo, which was a Mexican sweet cream and cinnamon. I went for the pina colada and was not disappointed.
It had a bright pineapple flavor and while the coconut was not quite as strong, the overall flavor was good. The Luce enjoyed it as well!
It was also well-packaged in a Pleasant Pops wrapper. At $2.50, it was slightly expensive, but a recent visit from the neighborhood ice cream man tells me that about $2.00 is normal, so this wasn't a terrible price. We perused the rest of the market, bought a few things, and went back to the stand for a Chongo.
