During one Summer of my youth, I vividly remember getting into a day-long battle with a “friend” from summer camp when she announced that the word sherbet was supposed to be pronounced: Shur-bay. I quickly corrected her and told her that I was pretty sure it was Shur-burt. She countered by telling me that I was a moron…everyone knew that it was Shur-bay…just like Sor-bay, duh! I’m pretty sure I had some quiet doubts after those fighting words, but I was too heavily invested in proving myself linguistically superior to back down. So we squabbled back and forth until finally we found ourselves deadlocked and promptly gave each other the silent treatment for the rest of the day. Ahh childhood! If only we’d had the wonder of Google and speedy hand-held technological devices back then…we would have quickly discovered that oh look at that…I was right! It’s pronounced Shur-burt or Shur-bit (no shur-bay pronunciation in sight).
Anyhow, these tasty Raspberry Sherbet Bars by GaGa are to blame for that jaunt down memory lane. They are smooth and creamy, and just the right amount of sweetness. They are so smooth that I’m almost tempted to call them sherbayyy! And that says something! My daughter and I discovered them at the new Fresh Market that just opened up here in Tulsa, and I can’t wait to try their other flavors. Have you had a GaGa bar before? If so, how is the coconut version? That one is next on my list. If you want to find GaGa bars in your area you can check out their store locations here. Here’s to scrumptious frozen treats…and the (almost) equally satisfying feeling of discovering that I was right, all these many Summers later! xo Ez
