How far are you willing to go?

For good ice cream that is.

When we went on our "Epic East Coast Adventure Spring Break 2011" {I still laugh out loud at the title} we had grand plans to visit Carlos Bakery.  The three hour wait did not appeal to us, although looking back now I'm wondering if we should have just sucked it up.  On our way back to the car we passed a Ben and Jerry's ice cream shop and decided to get a consolatory cone for our sorrows.

This is what I had:

It is coconut seven layer bar and it was indescribably good.  Seriously, just thinking about it now is making my mouth water.  Here's the description from their website:  Coconut Ice Cream with Coconut & Fudge Flakes, Walnuts and Swirls of Graham Cracker & Butterscotch

Hello heaven!

Here's the dilemma... there's a Ben and Jerry's in the metroplex.  But it's a good 35 minutes {at least!} away.  *sigh*

So what do you do?  Drive all the way there just for some belly busting but delicious ice cream?  Can that even be justified?  Or just relish in the good memories and settle on some still delicious Marble Slab?

Decisions, decisions...

Oh, that sounds so delicious! I would definitely travel. And, I'd take a cooler so I could bring a bunch home for later. :)
