Overheard at the Grocery Store

A father, his young daughter (3?), and his slightly older son (10?) were ahead of us in the soda aisle.
Dad: What flavor soda do you want? You can have any flavor you like!
Daughter: Umm... Peanut butter and jelly!!!
Dad: They don't make peanut butter and jelly soda. You'll have to pick something else. Maybe orange? Root beer?
Daughter: Dad!!! But you said I could have any flavor I like and I want peanut butter and jelly!!!
Cue exasperated dad trying to avoid SCLM (small-child large-meltdown). A few minutes later, we spotted them again. It was clear that dad was trying to regain favor with the pouty toddler.
Dad: Okay, what kind of ice cream do you want? You can pick any kind you want.
Daughter: Peanut butter and jelly!!!
Dad (realizing his mistake too late): They don't make peanut butter and jelly ice cream. I'm really sorry.
Daughter (lip quivering): But I want peanut butter and jelly!!!
Dad: I can't buy it if they don't make it!
Son: Actually, they do make peanut butter and jelly ice cream.
The little girl of course squealed with glee as dad pulled something from the freezer shelf.

Amazed, I had to see for myself. Yes, Wegmans does indeed make peanut butter and jelly ice cream. And if he didn't, that dad totally should've written the store a thank you letter.

I really really want some Peanut Butter and Jelly ice cream! That sounds so good!

C. Beth said...

Hmm, I'm not sure I agree with Seansmoma. Though I do like peanut butter in ice cream, something about PBJ ice cream sounds weird to me.

But I am very impressed that Wegman's saved the day!

debilyn said...

priceless. absolutely priceless.
even though i can't stomach the thought of PB&J ice cream.

Dave said...

Great... like I need ANOTHER excuse for a late night snack.... I love PBJ's....

blognut said...

I am now scarred for life.

Peanut butter and jelly ice cream?! WTF?!

Make it stop.

robin said...

Ben & Jerry's used to make PB&J ice cream but they "retired" it a while ago. If you go to the factory in VT they have a "graveyard" of flavors they put to rest, and there's a tombstone for it. Kinda funny but it also says a little something about the flavor.
I'm with everyone who agrees that peanut butter ice cream is YUMMY! (chocolate peanut butter is the best!) but the jelly part makes it kinda nasty.

Margaret said...

That is weird if you ask me but it is a good thing that they had it lol

kimber p said...

I love peanut butter ice cream, but the jelly part sound nasty--the best ice cream flavor I've ever had is a local ice cream from Velvet called Lemon Meringue Pie. It's a beautiful vanilla with ribbons of lemon pie filling throughout, and chunks of pie crust all is amazing!!

InspiredDreamer said...

LOL I just love that the dad made the same mistake twice. I see him "unavailable" a lot more in the future when it's grocery time. :)

Matty said...

I've never heard of that flavor before. Interesting. Does the bread come with it?

TMC said...

I wondered what this Wegman's was that you were tweeting about.

PB&J ice cream? No thanks. I'll stick with my favourite, mint chocolate chip.

Eternal Lizdom said...

Weird!! And I have to wonder if Jones doesn't actually make a PB&J soda...

Sara A Broers said...

Peanut Butter & Jelly~Every kids dream meal- in all shapes and forms. Cute post!

Dr.John said...

He should have known that any group that would put cookie dough in ice cream would also put peanut butter and jelly.

Linda said...

Autumn said...

PB&J Ice cream sounds awful! I'm not a big fan of PB&J though either. BUT I can totally relate to the daughter asking for something fairly off the wall. If they ever made a "Mac and Cheese with Hotdogs" flavor my youngest would be all over that. I asked what she wanted for her birthday dinner (thinking pizza or mcdonalds or something of the sort) she said mac and cheese with hot dogs. Lol! At least it was easy on the budget!

2cats said...

I draw the line at jelly in my ice cream. Chocolate with my peanut butter is perfection.

Just say Julie said...

been there. Thank God for Jones' soda getting me out of some jams with the young un back in the day. although before they can read, I could pretty much pass anything off as whatever he asked for.

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

BAhahahaaa!! I'm so glad you shared this conversation with us. Really, the guy meant SO well trying to please his daughter, but sometimes it just doesn't work. He got lucky - and totally owes the store a thank you letter.

sarah said...
