I have lived in Massachusetts for five years and I have never been to a Friendly’s. This chain started in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1935. I see commercials for the place several times a week and I’ve always meant to pop into one. Why? The ice cream sundaes look amazing.
Also, everyone once in a while I crave a burger. Yesterday I was running errands and there was a Friendly’s on my route. I decided that it was the day to give it a go.
I started my meal with a chocolate Fribble, which is a super-thick, soft-serve shake. Then I moved onto a BBQ Fronion Burger with fries.
After tackling this burger I thought I was done and my stomach was full but then the waitress Rosemary said I had an ice cream dessert coming. How could I turn it down? She suggested a simple vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup sundae with whipped cream and a cherry.
Yes it was simple and delicious.
Today when I woke up I felt a little guilty so I went for a long walk around Brookline Reservoir.
It was a beautiful way to start the day, but I think I’ll have to do twenty more laps to burn off my Friendly’s meal from the day before. But you only live once.
