The Great Greene Grape Ice Cream Guide 2020

Let’s be honest: Ice cream is not a seasonal food. We eat it in spring to welcome warmer weather. We eat it in summer to cool off. We eat it in fall because we don’t want to let go of summer, and we eat it in winter because the heat is cranked in our apartments. ...

All dads (and dad figures) distill their knowledge for the next generation.
