It's a Target exclusive. Didn't you know?
My first and only affair with this delectable treat was while in Scottsdale AZ for a Mumford & Sons concert. While the concert experience trumped the ice cream...it was in second (a far second, but still).
Upon returning to the cozy haven that is my hometown, after relishing in the cool breeze my state has in droves (while AZ has NONE), I knew I had to find that ice cream again.

So I went to Target.
It wasn't at Target.
I checked Albertson's.
Walmart was also searched.
Wondering why it was so hard to locate, I went online. Google can tell you almost anything and is sometimes very accurate. The interweb was where I learned of Target's exclusive hold on my dream treat. MINE must just have sold out.
Like any good web surfer, I went to the source. Target.com listed the ice cream, OBVIOUSLY, not sold online. However, there was a "find in store" button.
I clicked it.
Entered my zipcode.
Was given a list of Targets in my state.
The two (TWO) in my city had the following words listed next to their location:
I blacked out. Fainted, maybe. My world spun and I crashed to the ground, only to be found later in a pool of my own blood...
Okay, no. I didn't do any of the above. But man, did I pout. Pout. Pout. Pout.
So what does the fact that MY town doesn't SELL my awesome ice cream have to do with my dad being awesome?
Well let's head there.
My dad is awesome. He just is.
He's one of those guys that's pretty willing to do anything for anyone who needs it, regardless of how inconvenient it is. He worked ridiculously hard while my siblings and I were young so that he'd be able to give us things he didn't have. He doesn't make promises he can't keep. He LOVES going to movies and takes me to them whenever I have one I want to see (and pays for everything, despite me being an adult able to pay for myself). He's good and he's kind.
He's logic. Like, Spock logic. When I need to work through a situation, I go to him because I know he'll help me rationalize the best situation.
He is WICKED good with numbers. Scary good. "I'm kind of creeped out by how fast you just did that immense multiplication" type good. (Ex. The other night he guessed a whole bunch of stats for a show before they appeared on the screen. He does the math in his head and it 99% right 98% of the time.)
Enough of my gushing.
My awesome dad, who is awesome in his own right, is going on business trips next week. He's driving up to a few other cities in our state.
He's planning on taking a cooler of sorts, going to their targets (which list as In Stock) and buying me my Brownie Chew Gooder Ice Cream.

My dad is the best.
Father's day is almost here. How awesome is your dad (or father-figure in your life)? What's the BEST or coolest thing about your dad?
Let's celebrate dads :)
