Today I took my daughter Ava to get some “Thrifty” ice cream. If you grew up in Arizona (I’m not sure if they existed outside AZ) then you probable at one time went to a Thrifty Store to get some ice cream. Back in the day Thrifty was a sorf of “Walgeen’s” or “Osco Drug” but with an ice cream counter added at the front of the store. The store was never really all that special, but the ice cream was always fantastic. Even though the stores all went under, the Thrifty Ice Cream brand survived and can be found in a few spots around town. This one was at a “Water & Ice” in Gilbert, not to far from our house. I remember vividly the trips we would take with my grandmother to the one on Main and Horne so it was fun to go down memory lane as Ava and I chowed down on ice cream.
Any of you zonies know what i’m talking about? Or am I the only one?
