Monday Morning Musings

Early Prince Castle Ad

Early Prince Castle Ad

One of my fondest summer memories growing up as a child was my dad taking the four of us kids out for sherbet cones at Prince Castle after a family dinner.  On the ride over, my mouth would water just thinking about the icy cold fruit flavors that would soon be mine.  Today there is sorbet, Italian ice and gelato.  But nothing can even come close to replacing that special three-sherbet Jumbo Cone from years ago.

Take a walk with me now down memory, as we enjoy the wonderful world of sherbet on etsy:

One of my most favorite items is Sherbert the Llama Hand Puppet.  According to Sherbert’s creator, Kaida: Sherbert likes ice cream, painting, and making people laugh.   He dislikes gloves and is afraid of the dark… give Sherbert’s mouth a squeeze and he’ll squeak.

My other most favorite item is sundazed’s Sherbet Rainbow Monkey who just happens to be holding an ice cream cone:

How cute is this fuzzy orange-raspberry sherbet cupcake hat with red cherry by Artology?

And how about this orange and raspberry sherbet craft show vendor apron with zipper pouch. downthestreet’s listing reads in part: This is a great, functional apron that can meet all your needs for selling at a craft show, flea market, garage sale, or any other venue… I can easily machine embroider your shop name just above the large pocket to personalize.

Didn’t oneifbyhand take great photos of this delicious treat?  My mouth began to water when I saw this raspberry sherbet with copper necklace.

Speaking of looking good enough to eat, how about this orange sherbet whipped bath mousse?  You almost need a spoon rather than a bath poof for this creamy whipped bath confection by naiad!

Should you like “bursts of lemons, limes and oranges,” here is a citrus sherbet kiddie scoop.  CraftsMeow describes kiddie scoops as follows: 100-yard skeins, perfect for baby items or contrasting heels/toes on adult socks.

And finally, GracieDesigns makes it possible for you to cuddle your ice cream [in lime or raspberry sherbet].  Wait – let her explain: You love ice cream, but not the frosty fingers. Well, I happen to agree. I was eating my favorite flavor the other day (cherry and chocolate flavor named after the late and great Jerry Garcia *hint hint*), and I always wrap a piece of paper towel around it so my fingers don’t get cold. Then I thought of the ice cream cuddler; I already make ’em for coffee.  [way to go, Gracie]

  3. I have to put a towel around my ice cream too. I just hate having cold hands!

    Thanks for the great article, I have a lot of great memories of going out for ice cream and cold treats with my family when I was wee 😀

  4. This makes me want some pineapple sherbet. The ice cream cuddler is a great idea. Just yesterday I had some ice cream out of the pint and I used a hand towel!

  8. This is so fun. I love sherbet and the colors the artists have chosen are so vibrant. One of my favorite flavors is actually pineapple. This article brings me back to days spent with mom at the park. We would go to the stand and order pineapple but when they had ran out we would get the combo push up type, “you know the one with orange and strawberry” it was good fun and can we say yummmmmy? Thank you friend for taking us all down memory lane! I love your blogs and not just because you did a story on us. Your writing skills are fantastic! Thanks again, take care.
