Go big or go home!

...or just make your order a little more abbreviated.  But really, who on earth would do just a sane thing like that? :)  Someone recently went to Cold Stone Creamery -- you know, the ice cream shop known for outrageous creations and a sea of various toppings -- and ordered a creation with every single add-in in store.

Check it out:

In the mix, we've got:
  • marshmallows
  • chocolate chips
  • white chocolate chips
  • peanuts
  • brownies
  • M&Ms
  • chocolate chip cookie dough
  • gummy bears
  • graham crackers
  • sponge cake
  • Butterfingers
  • cherry topping
  • Kit-Kats
  • blueberries
  • raspberries
  • strawberries
  • apple pie filling
  • pineapple
  • Reese's Cups
  • fudge topping
  • caramel topping
  • (others unable to identify, probably from this list)
Whew!  Just typing all of that worked up an appetite (wishful thinking, perhaps?).   And I bet you're wondering what the grand total for that mess creation was.  If you guessed $28.90, you're correct!  That's right.  $0.69 per topping, people.  Insane!!

I was lucky enough to be treated to some Cold Stone as a belated birthday celebration this weekend.  I ordered the apple pie creation -- yum!  Graham crackers, apple pie filling, caramel sauce, and cinnamon ice cream.  Toooootally hit the spot.

Being that it's National Ice Cream month for a few more days, I must ask this question -- what is your favorite topping or mix-in for ice cream?  Mine has gotta be rainbow sprinkles, though a giant blob of peanut butter is a close second.
