Happy National Chocolate Ice Cream Day!

In case you missed the memo, today is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day, which should make J-THREE-O very happy. (She looooooves chocolate ice cream. Me? I am more of a chocolate chip fan.)

It is also Daniel Boone Day -- the day when American pioneer Daniel Boone "discovered" Kentucky.

But wait, that's not all. Today is also the beginning of Shavuot, the period commemorating God giving the Israelites the Torah on Mount Sinai and the first harvest of the season. And how does one commemorate Shavuot, you ask? By eating at least one dairy meal. (Mmmm... chocolate ice cream.) I kid you not.

So in honor of National-Chocolate-Ice-Cream-Daniel-Boone-Shavuot-Day, I will be eating a big bowl of chocolate ice cream in my coonskin cap watching a replay of various Kentucky Derbies while reading some Old Testament. (The Book of Daniel, perhaps?)

I thought I recognized that guy. It's Fess Parker as Daniel Boone, recycling his outfit from the Davy Crockett days. (Details here.)

"Xocai Healthy Chocolate" is "high cocoa content chocolate" combining the exotic flavors of "dark chocolate" with Açai and Blueberries. Each 12-gram of "Xoçai Chocolate" is made
with "rich, organic dark, Belgian Chocolate." Best of all, they are suitable for "Vegetarians and Vegans," because they are considered a “Clean Product.”
