We all scream
For ice cream!It was inevitable. If they can make tequila lollipops, complete with worm, some entrepreneur somewhere—in this case, Sparky's Ice Cream, in Columbia, Missouri—had to make Cicada ice cream. And why not? Missouri is right in the heart of the Brood XIX, which I wrote about in my most recent post. The story, first reported in Columbia's newspaper, The Missourian, has gone viral, appearing in The Daily Mail (UK—great photos too), Sydney Morning Herald, and NPR.
