I've been pretty good about not gloating so much about Arizona winters, but now I just can't help myself. It's February, it's going to be in the 70s this week, and some ice cream sounds pretty good right now.
Anywhere else this time of year, free ice cream might sound a little crazy, but I think the Blue Bell Creameries people have timed their campaign just right. This week, they're rolling into town with their giant ice cream trailer to hand out coupons and free scoops of ice cream.
Mocha Madness -- coffee ice cream filled with caramel sauce, pecans, and chocolate chips -- is the new flavor they're promoting, but they'll also be dishing up other flavors as well.
