Rawda Soft Ice Cream



My friend called me earlier and asked me if I was up for soft ice cream! Knowing me, of course I was up for it.

We have been loyal customers to Rawda Co-op Branch, in block 3, sweet store (I think its called Ch√Ęteau de Cadeau) for few years now. I would park my car and the sales lady would prepare my soft ice cream cone and have it ready as I walk in (holding my KD 0.250 note), just as I like it... mixed (half chocolate and half vanilla)... that is when the store is not packed with customers of course.

Its been a while since we last did that, so we decided to go... it was around 7:00ish PM and the store was FULL! I mean FULL full! As soon as we got our ice cream cones, kids in the store started staring at as and pulling their mommies clothes... whispering "I want ice cream too". About three kids in the store got their ice cream cones, a guy parked his car and instead of going to the grocery store he decided to stop and order two ice cream cones. Another lady came in, saw me and asked.. "I want the same please"

It was funny! AND YUMMY!

The only ice cream cone I like is the ice cream of McDonald's. It's so thick & fat, unlike other ice cream cones that have no taste in them because of having too much water.

Amjad-
