Just how many people (errr..I mean humans…) have an ice cream sundae named after them? Ha! Thought so! Well, I DO! Just wander into my owner’s Candy & Ice Cream Store located at 1096 Hertel Avenue and take a gander at the “specials board” on the back wall just above (and behind) the ice cream counter. See it in the lower right hand side? MoJo Sundae – yes, that Bad Boy is named after me! Yes – I do have a hard time holding an ice cream scoop so I can’t make one for myself – but when I show up, one of the girls behind the counter makes one just for me. I have to give full credit to Tom, my owner (…aka The Boss…) for creating this thing. He and I worked the recipe so many years ago I can’t remember the exact date…
What’s in it you ask? Well, you start with three scoops of Perry’s
ice cream – you can pick from either Vanilla or Chocolate or just mix them together. The MoJo Sundae is topped with Peanut Butter Sauce and Hot Fudge Sauce, then you sprinkle some crumbled Oreo cookies on the top, add a squirt (or two) of whipped cream then finish off the whole she-bang with a bright red cherry on top! Whooeee! What could be better for you? Not much! Certainly beats a dish of dry dog food for dinner…
Actually, I’m not allowed to eat ANY chocolate (especially any one those Canadian Candy Bars or those delicious looking British Candy Bars that just came in…) or have ANY Hot Fudge Sauce – but I have been known to dip my hairy chin into a large bowl of Vanilla ice cream that is sometimes enhanced with a dollop of peanut butter sauce. After all, ice cream is just frozen milk and we all know how good calcium is for your body. A small but growing dog needs all the calcium it can get. And yes, too much Peanut Butter Sauce is definitely not good for my slim physique – but what the heck, you’re only a dog once! And remember, every calendar year puts 7 years on MY clock – so please don’t tell me it will shorten my life. I fact, don’t tell me any short jokes at all!
Unless you live in Western New York, there is absolutely NO way you are going to get your hands (or a spoon…) into a MoJo Sundae – but you can still dream! In fact, that is how I spend most of my days – laying around the house, sleeping and dreaming. My day is sometimes broken up by an occasional pee break when I can get outside in the yard.
And no, the Boss won’t let me spend any time in his Bella Mia Candy Store due to those pesky Erie County, NY Health Department regulations, but it doesn’t bother me anymore. I learned long ago to put on my “sad face”, hang around the kitchen after dinner and presto – a scoop of Perry’s Vanilla Ice Cream shows up in my bowl. Life Is Good!
If you ever get a chance to try my MoJo Sundae, give me some feedback on FB. I won’t be able to reply, but I always enjoy it when someone reads me the email.
Hey – Gotta’ go and chase a bus!
