Brace yourself, ice cream season is coming. I personally eat ice-cream all year round. It’s one of my favourite meals in the world. And yes, don’t fight me on that, it is a meal as I do eat ice-cream as dinner. Some ice-creams I try only once. But then there are childhood favourites that I just cannot let go of. And next to Magnum, Cornetto and the Erdbeer Combino, one of my all-time favourites is Brickerl. It lets my chocoholic heart beat faster and instantly takes me back to treasured summer memories of my eight-year-old chocolate-loving-self.
Looking Back to Hot Summer Days at the Lake
And as summer is now slowly but surely coming nearer, I inevitably start to reminiscence of my summers back home in beautiful Carinthia. Of careless times when all we did was play in the lake all day, eat ice-cream and worry about nothing but our parents freaking out because once again my brother and I have made a mess with our chocolate ice-cream covered hands. My devotion to all things chocolate was probably inherited to me from my grandparents.
Thinking back, I vividly remember me and my brother running around the lake, with sunglasses on our faces and a chocolate ice-cream in our hands. We always knew what we wanted – chocolate, chocolate and even more chocolate. So we usually both opted for a Brickerl, with its delicious chocolate ice-cream covered in a layer of chocolate this ice-lolly was the perfect choice for our chocolate-loving hearts. And even my mum, dad and grandparents always went for a Brickerl rather than any of the other options.
Friends are the Family you Choose, and Whom You Share Your Brickerl With
Over the years, however, I must admit I have lost sight of this childhood favourite of mine. I still eat a lot of ice-cream (and chocolate). But usually, I don’t go for an ice-cream lolly anymore. Nowadays I like to curl up on my balcony with a big sundae in my hands, spooning the sugary treat with friends, my boyfriend or even my mom and brother back home.
Something I love almost as much as ice cream and chocolate is new releases of my favourite brands. When I heard that they now had Cremissimo à la Brickerl in stock, I immediately had to run to the next supermarket and taste a spoonful. And what’s better than doing so with your girlfriends in tow. So I asked Lisa and Simone if they wanted to join me on a little ice-cream party one spring evening. We sat down, each grabbed a spoon and as we dived into the chocolate-y ice cream.
When trying the new Cremissimo à la Brickerl, which is swirled with chocolate sauce and sprinkled with chocolate shavings, we immediately felt taken aback to our childhood days. Each of us had their story to tell. Be it that one memory with your dad at the lake, the long summer evening with your friends at your BBQ-garden party or simply the taste of a beautiful childhood. And spending the afternoon, chatting, eating ice-cream and reminiscing felt so good. Friends truly are the family you choose. So keep them close, invite them for ice-cream and share your memories with them.
