Sometimes, my job is pretty wonderful. Like last week, when I got an email from Dreyer’s, that went a little something like this:

Dear Becki,

Please, go buy some ice cream – on us – and help us spread the word about this amazing charitable project we’re undertaking!

Um, twist my arm! Which means I got to spend Sunday night doing the only thing one should do on a Sunday: make ice cream sundaes!

This was an exhaustively (and deliciously) researched story, but in the end, I landed on a masterpiece: Dreyer’s Slow-Churned Butter Pecan ice cream, waffle bowl, hot butterscotch, freshly toasted almonds, whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry. (Honestly, I think sprinkles belong on just about everything.) The maple flavor in the Butter Pecan (which the hubs ended up stealing from me, it was so good) and the butterscotch did some amazing things to that waffle bowl. I highly recommend giving it a try.

So, about the charity part. Dreyer’s has created a program called A Reason to Smile, which is designed to help with cleft palate surgeries…an amazing cause. To pitch in, take a pic of you (or someone you love) wearing a big ice cream smile, and upload it to Dreyer’s Facebook page. Dreyer’s will donate $5 for every pic, and you can score coupons for free ice cream (!). By the end of the summer, the goal is to give away 25,000 scoops of ice cream, capture 25,000 ice cream smiles and gift 500 surgeries/smiles to children in need.

Fine Print: Dreyer’s® Slow Churned Light Ice Cream is churned slowly for all the rich & creamy taste of regular ice cream, but with half the fat and one-third fewer calories. Now that’s a reason to smile. Give a smile with Operation Smile!
