If you missed it, Sue Gleiter did a neat piece today on professional tasters, local people with palates educated to the nuances of coffee, cookies, wine and … ice cream.
Jeez, that takes me back. When I was in high school, I worked one summer at Hershey Ice Cream on Cameron Street. It was 15 minutes in the freezer stacking product, 15 minutes out of the freezer, all day long, and all the ice cream you could eat. After a week, nobody ate very much.
But we learned a lot about the flavors, and I’m still partial to Hershey’s.
