Q: Dear Diane, I have a very simple question: When serving cake & ice cream should I give my guests a spoon or a fork? Thanks, MG
A: Dear MG, the manner in which you eat your creamy confection is a matter of personal “taste”. Some people enjoy eating their ice cream with a spoon, while others prefer a fork, when served with cake or pie. In a previous blog, Ice Cream Etiquette, I address the proper use of a spoon and fork when eating ice cream combined with another dessert. Here’s an excerpt:
“Hold your fork in your left hand, spoon in the right. The spoon will be used to cut, scoop and maneuver the ice cream and cake or pie to your mouth. The fork, using the tines as a stabilizer, will keep the food secure so that it doesn’t slide off the plate.”
In honor of National Ice Cream month Blue Bell has given us a few ice cream suggestions:
Whether you lick, scoop or bite your ice cream, have a great weekend and don’t forget to share a scoop with a friend!
