Ice Cream Lickety Split!

If you want your ice cream lickety split as in "quick" in Bushnell, FL, you might as well forget it! Lickety Split Ice Cream Shop in Bushnell, FL is THE most popular place to get ice cream for miles around....We went tonight after supper for dessert with our friends, Ritchie and Nick, and the line was at least 20 people long when we got there.....BUT IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT! And there is probably ALWAYS going to be a line no matter what time you go, because there are two big RV parks--one across the street and one in back of the ice cream store.

Sparky got a soft serve twist cone, half chocolate, half vanilla, best twist cone she ever had, and Eldy got "Candy Bar Overload"....Ritchie got some "Cappuccino Crunch", and Nick got "Rum Raisin".....The ice cream is made by Working Cow, a Florida ice cream company that serves over 600 establishmentsYou want lots of choices? Are you hungry for ice cream yet? Here is the list you can get at the Lickety Split ice cream shop:

The only bummer to the whole trip was Nick said a chemist friend told him that soft serve ice cream has its origins in cardboard. Hunh? Sparky is going to have to check into that! REALLY? Say it ain't so!

The only other thing we accomplished today, was Sparky went to Lakeland, FL to find the Hobby Lobby store.  A BONANZA was scored!  Joann Fabrics, Michael's Crafts and Hobby Lobby are all in the town of Lakeland, about 42 miles away. (I didn't ask her how much she spent nor did I look to see how big a bag she brought home, best not to know! I just want my Sparky to be happy with doing her crafts! says E.) Aw-w-w-w, what a guy!

Hobby Lobby is somewhat farther away from the rest. Sparky used her phone GPS  and Eldy said his prayers for her not to get lost there and back. Mission accomplished! But not without three phone calls to Eldy when the GPS told her to go a different way coming back home than the way she went to get there!   GPS is a great thing when it works the way you hope! See you later, don't know where.............


  1. LOVE ice cream. The Peanut Butter Carmel Cookie Dough caught my eye! There may be a few calories in that one for sure. Soft serve even better yet! ~wheresweaver

  2. Two scoops of Cherry Chocolate Cordial please, in a waffle cone?

  3. How about the pretty blonde on the billboards! Drive by and look at her pretty face every day. What's her name and can we find her at the icecream shop? :)

  4. Sure is a pretty girl on the billboard. Can she be seen at the icecream shop?
