What's better than a free lunch?

It's the age old question really, like why is the planet round or why is the sky blue... ok, those questions can be answered by science and logic, just like what's better than a free lunch. The answer? Ice cream with your free lunch ofcourse!

Click to zoom in...  if you dare!!

This is by far the {messiest} looking treat I have ever posted. You could definitely say I went a smidge bit nutty, but when presented with a giant table full of treats and a bunch of crazy coworkers, well what was I suppose to do? Underneath that mess is a big lump of neapolitan ice cream. What's on top is whip cream, crushed heath bar, a few chocolate chips and white chocolate chips, a crushed waffle bowl for crunch, some M&Ms, sprinkles (because sprinkles rock!), some chocolate sauce.... and then some strawberry sauce to be on the safe side. There was also walnuts and almonds which I did not go for, but there were some mini desserts so I threw the brownie in for good measure. Since we didn't have any cherries, I decided to top mine with a mini Reese's peanut but cup.

Diagnosis: waayyyyyyyyyyyyy too sweet! The strawberries with the Smuckers chocolate sauce were way too much. Actually, it was probably more the sauce then the strawberries. The waffle bowl was good but the brownie was the star of the show. Looking back I wish I had thrown in 3 or 4 of them on the bottom to start off with.

Oh man, writing that sentence just made me hungry again...

I'm sure the calorie count ain't pretty so let's just say it's a good thing I had a bunch of manual stuff to do today because otherwise I probably would have faded off to nap time like all of my fellow desk jockeys. Thanks to my work for the decent lunch followed by a most excellent dessert table that put a smile on everyone's face.

On Second Scoop: There are plenty of leftovers so I had myself another (more moderate) bowl yesterday. I figured out what that weird taste was. It's the cheap and horribly artificial strawberry price-rite ice cream!
