“Frozen Dessert: mint chocolate chip ice-cream”

They say you smell like peppermint
Oh ’tis the key flavor of my essence.
But why’d one argue about that?
Cause it tastes gross!
Jesus, that’s an unpardonable accusation!
Fresh Peppermint with chocolate chip
in an ice-cream??
Why does such combo exists?
How can’t one see:
I’m made up of an organic product.

Isn’t that intriguing, uh?
Not at all.
And so is strawberry ice-cream!
Bet, none of them are as cool as me huh..
Alright, I doubt that now.
I’m already cold in the freezer
And my lavish chill mint flavor relishes on
every tongue, they call it frozen dessert.
Rich in mint green will devour your eyes.
Have me with great pleasure
and delight.

~an impromptu poem for #NaPoWriMo day 20

Prompt Day 20: Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that anthropomorphizes a kind of food. It could be a favorite food of yours, or maybe one you feel conflicted about. I feel conflicted about Black Forest Cake, for example. It always looks so pretty in a bakery window, and I want to like the combination of cherries and chocolate . . . but I don’t. But how does the cake feel about it?

Hello folks! My poem is about an ice-cream flavor with whom I share a love-hate relationship: the mint chocolate chip ice-cream lol. So as the prompt states “anthropomorphizes“, I chose to sign up for an argument with the flavor itself, in a humorous way through it. I like all kinds of cookies or cake other than the mint flavor, and an exception as frozen dessert though. Most of my friends hates it, like eww they say. But I felt it was a very odd flavor as mint is often used in various food products especially chewing gum and as far as I remember the oldest yet popular chewing gum were Chlormint and mentos and now we have tons of such different products issued by latest brands, like happydent, orbit, doublemint, trident etc. and most fluid medicines uses mint flavor honestly that apparently disgusts me but isn’t it phenomenal after you have the ice-cream, not once, thrice. I’m sure you’ll feel the delight. My poem urges you to devour and explore on this flavor in more food items and yep read, taste it and let me know if you like the flavor or not!?
