Now, I enjoy the holiday season as much as the next person, what with everyone in a festive mood and the new Apple commercial that, for some reason, made the room get a little dusty the first time I saw it.
Alas, the holiday merriment only goes so far when you’re Jewish. Christmas equals Chinese food and nothing to watch on television.
But before I could start channeling my inner-Kyle Broflovski this year, I was alerted to an important development in being a Jew on Christmas — a Hampden ice cream shop has developed an ice cream flavor just for us for the holidays.
The Charmery is now offering “Chinese Food and a Movie,” which it describes in a press release as a “buttered popcorn base with chocolate covered fortune cookie pieces throughout.”
To be honest, I’m not sure about that flavor combination but I will reserve judgment until I taste it. Best of all, I could try it Christmas Eve or Christmas Day because The Charmery is open both days.
Here’s hoping they really help out us Jews and come up with a special flavor for Yom Kippur.
