Nibbles: Blue Bunny Mini Swirls

Over the past few weeks, while recovering from an operation, before I got my appetite back, my daughter did everything she could think of to get me interested in food. Darcy cooked for me and I ate, but not too much, and not too often. I really didn’t want breakfast at all, and by the time I was hungry, it was 2 in the afternoon. I ate what I wanted, but by the time I was done, I was thinking about when I could take a pain pill and go back to sleep.

Every day she went to the market, bringing me boxes of Entenmann chocolate donuts. Two boxes are still in the freezer. But one day she brought me Blue Bunny ice cream mint chocolate chip mini swirls. Each chocolate cookie cone was no bigger than my index finger, filled with mint chocolate chip ice cream (my favorite flavor), a tiny scoop covered with a chocolate shell and topped with something crunchy. At 129 calories, it was tasty, and just all I really wanted. She bought it at Stop & Shop and they are available in other flavors. I think I may have one right now.
