Day 10: EBOOK: 365 WRITING PROMPTS
Vanilla, chocolate, or something else entirely?
I love vanilla bean ice-cream, especially Roselani’s Hawaiian vanilla bean ice-cream. I can have a scoop of vanilla bean any time of the day. I think the reason why I prefer vanilla bean over the other ice-cream flavors is that it complements any topping and most of all it goes great in shakes, smoothies or cocktails. Vanilla bean ice-cream is great when also paired with a slice of chocolate cake. The rich taste of the decadent chocolate and the silky taste of the vanilla bean ice-cream takes it to another level of happiness.
I think the magic is in the vanilla bean. A few years back, Kainoa and I took our parents to visit the Hawaiian Vanilla Company in Paauilo. We enjoyed a splendid lunch and the owner, Jim Reddekopp, greeted us during our meal and shared his vision for his property. After our meal, we had a tour of his property where he explained the process of pollinating the orchid to obtain the vanilla bean. It was impressive to see his vast orchid farm and to know that his vanilla bean is in the my favorite Roselani ice-cream.
