Dare To Be Great...


Just in case you can't read it. At The Parlour, a ice cream parlour in Jackson, Michigan offers a special treat, The Dare To Be Great, and all you need to do is eat it in less than one hour and you will receive it for free. Here is what you get for $29.99...

21 scoops of ice cream topped with strawberries, chocolate, pineapple, and marshmallow topping, chopped mixed nuts and cherries.

What do you think could you Dare To Be Great? I know I couldn't, just thinking about it makes me sick to my stomach.

I think I will find another way to Dare To Be Great!

Ewww, I'm with ya!! Gag me with a spoon:)

Sounds like something the college crowd would love though.

Oh, does this bring back memories!

I've told you I lived in Jackson for 8 years when I was a kid, haven't I? Spent many summer nights at The Parlour.

No way I could go for the "Dare to be Great", though. My limit would be about 3 scoops!

Wow that is too much. I can dare to be great at other things.. Have a great day. My Round Robin is this week if you want to show off any of your great work. It is a Valentine theme or you can just share.

When I was growing up ( Kalamazoo, MI) we had a place similar to that... the same giant ice cream thing. Never did I witness one being finished, even at my 8 yr birthday party... we did not finish it!

( May be its a Michigan thing?)

dear me, I can hardly handle one scoop before the guilt takes over. I'm a tea spoon kinda girl, a tea spoon of sugar and all that jazz

oh no, what is the world coming to. I tend to take a teaspoon at a time, a little dab will do you.

I don't think that ever would have sounded good even as a kid whom begged for ice cream as a meal everyday. Bleck - but I would like to see someone try.

That sounds so nasty! 21 scoops? No thanks!

I LOVE ICE CREAM! Take off some of the fruit toppings and trade it for chocolate, caramel or butterscotch and I'm in!!! Of course, I probably wouldn't eat for like 4 weeks but it would be worth it!
