The Perfect Concrete

I treated myself to a Ted Drewes frozen-custard "concrete" today on my way to a Symphony Chorus practice at, of all places, Opera Theatre of St. Louis. It happened to be on my way. While I was scanning the list of flavors, my eye fell on one I had never noticed before: Frisco. I asked the kid at the window what it was, and she said it was some kind of fruit cocktail. I decided to give it a shot.

SHAZAM! That was a great flavor! I think I have a new favorite, the "Cardinal Sin" notwithstanding. I don't even know what all was in it, but I spotted cherries, chunks of apricot, the flavor of banana, and maybe mango. Wow! What an unsung masterpiece! Ambrosia must taste like turnip greens next to this stuff!
