When Redneck Diva Mentioned Her Farts, I Thought of Tastee Freez
Redneck Diva farted at the Tastee Freez. What ever happen to those? I mean Tastee Freezes? I have always liked their ice cream better than Dairy Queen.
Back in the day, we would leave the lake after a day of water skiing and depending on which way Dad took home, we would pass a Tastee Freez or a Dairy Queen.
I’m not sure what determined our route. But I was always glad when it went by the Tastee Freez.
The one we visited looked a lot like this one. A lot. That would be my car parked there. 1963 Corvette Stingray split window coupe. In my dreams.
I liked Tastee Freez because it was “grainier.” A lot more like home-made ice cream. Dairy Queen is much smoother. Grainy good, smooth good. Grainier better.
Of course, I know what happened to Tastee Freez. Google ™ search engine told me. What’s left of them are owned by some Italian Californians and they have a bunch of stores in the states of Chicago and Virginia. About a hundred total, with some others spread out other states.
I know what killed the white block Tastee Freez’s with the gigantic cones on top of the building and teen age girls or a grouchy old coot working behind the sliding window.
Naked mascots. Remember Tee and Eff? They were nekkid with ice cream on their heads.
Double You Tee Eff – with nekkid mascots – what a great contemporary marketing campaign this would make.
WTF? TASTEE FREEZ!!!!
Oh, Redneck Diva farted at the Tastee Freez – not on purpose – when she was 14 years old. She is twice that age now. Maybe three times that age. Now she does it like your local ambulance chasing lawyer, anywhere, anytime. When’s the last time you farted in public – not on purpose?
Was it grainy or smooth?
Oh! I LOVE Tastee Freeze. We’ve had two of them up here (Anchorage, Alaska) my whole life. In fact, I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that I was around 24 before I found out they weren’t a purely local joint!
They feel so down to earth, and very much a throw back (in the good way) to a different time… I guess I just assumed it had to be a mom and pop sort of operation…not a chain.
Even still, I’m kind of shocked that there are hundreds of them, crazy!

@Kim: Oh! Neato that you have two! And cool that they are so well run you thought they were local. Usually it’s the crappy attitudes of the employees that gives away the chains.
Hundreds as in maybe 2 hundred! I forget, what do they call the Tastee Freez equivalent of a Dilly Bar… ice cream on a stick with choc. coating…frozen.
Is nothing sacred, man? Oh wait, I started this whole farting issue, did I not? Never mind. I better get lots of traffic from this whole gassy conversation…
And for your information, I am 2 1/2 times 14 now.
Redneck Diva’s last blog post..Okay, stop me if you’ve heard this one
@Redneck Diva: And a LOT thinner!
We used to go to an ice cream stand called Twin Kiss when I was growing up in Pennsylvania. Apparently there are still a few of them around. I agree, Dairy Queen kind of sucks, although Ben can’t pass one in a mall without stopping for a Blizzard.
I have never farted anywhere, because I am a lady.

@Gretchen: Twin Kiss, that’s cool. The whole incest thing. Blizzards are yummy, but my favorite is the simple chocolate milk shake.
Smooth or grainy farts? That’s just gross. I’ve never farted a grainy fart in public because I’ll hold it until I get to a john. Duh. I’m female. Only a male does otherwise. (hahahahahaha)
