What do you do when it's gone?

This is a product that I love, Blue Bell Ice Cream. Blue Bell is the best Ice Cream I've tasted down south. They have lots and lots of flavors but my favorites are, Pistachio Almond, Banana Split, Homemade Vanilla, The Ultimate Neapolitan, Rocky Road, and Homemade Vanilla with Strawberries. I said all of that, to say this.

My friend Connie @ Living Beautifully, as a part of one of her recent post suggested the start of a revolution (kidding), because sometime we find products that work wonders in our daily lives and then like POOF! that product is gone. Well now I am for joining the REVOLUTION, so let me jump on my soapbox for a minute.

Here in Alabama we had a company called Barber's, it was famous for Milk and Ice Cream and other dairy products, it's now Mayfield and I don't care for their ice cream so I have become a fan of Blue Bell for my ice cream.

Okay, here's the deal, Barber's use to make a Lemon Sherbet, Oh My Goodness, it was divine. I bought all the store could carry, then one day, (ZERO)! I rushed to question the store manager, he didn't know why he didn't have any but, he thought he'd be getting some in soon. HA! Then when I went back he said, in a few days. I tell you, " IT WAS NEVER"! I called Barber's and they said, didn't sell enough of it so it was discontinued. I WAS DEVASTATED, AND A PART OF ME DIED! It had the favor of an ice cold Mellow Yellow and it even taste as if it were carbonated. It was also so refreshing, I can't express the disappointment to the extent that I actually felt it.

From time to time that Sherbet still crosses my mind, and I say to myself, I wish I had some of that Barber's Lemon Sherbet, that was so good ONCE UPON A TIME. Maybe one of you can think of a product you loved but, IS NO MORE.
