My favourite part about selling ice cream in the mall, is letting people try our new flavours when they come in. Root beer float was a hit, and people go nuts over the sea salt caramel. So when we got the green tea flavour, I was all over letting people try it. It's not that appetizing of a colour either, so sometimes I have to talk people into taking a free sample. And then the magic happens. Before I tried it, I thought people were nuts for making funny faces and deciding how they were going to swallow it without their gag reflex kicking in. I love green tea! And then I had some.
It's HORRID! Absolutely terrible! Pasty and chalky, and then the bitter/tangy after taste kicks in. Its a little twisted, but now I know how gross it is, I get even more excited about letting people try it. The occasional person isn't lying through their green teeth when they say they like it, but that's always less interesting.
