Ah the signs of summer in Boston, the adorable ducks in the Boston Public Garden are surrounded by little ones fighting to get their shot at riding Momma duck. There's not a sunny day that you walk by the precious statues and don't see little ones riding them like horseys or families lined up to get that Kodak moment. I can remember class field trips to ride the swan boats (or should I say float since they are in a pond the size of a swimming pool!) and always stopping by these reknown ducks. Well these ducks have become a Boston landmark and since the launch of the famous Duck Tours, there are people quacking all around town. Yeah, so its a little obnoxious but who doesn't love to be a true tourist every once in awhile! So as the Duck Tours launch a new season a Boston favorite creamery, Brigham's, has launched a new flavor in their honor, Quack Tracks. Its their yummy award-winning vanilla ice cream with mini peanut butter cups and streaks of fudge tracks. Wow...does that sound good and it was. Although I have to admit I am not a huge fan of vanilla based
ice creams (gotta have more flavor!) this was super creamy and had just the right amount of peanut butter cups and fudge. I was very tempted to add the fudge and whipped cream (because it was a birthday treat shared with my coblogger Bethany!) but I didn't want that to take over the flavor. Good decision but that just gives me a reason to go back.
