a drumstick a day.

Growing up, my summers were spent with my family at the Jersey Shore. Long days at the beach ended with a visit to our condo pool. They were quite the enjoyable, worry-free summers, to say the least.

Yeah, we were pretty hip kids.

These days, though, life doesn’t let me escape to the beach or pool in the summertime as much as I’d like. As a twenty-something working and living in New York City, my friends and I have to find ways to bring our fun summer activities to us.

Sometimes it’s going somewhere for brunch where we can enjoy our meal outdoors.

Other times it’s a trip to the park to soak in some sun and greenery.

And then, sometimes we prefer to stay in the comfort of our own apartment building and enjoy a favorite summer snack on the sundeck. For Jessi, Erica and I, our favorite treat as of late is Nestlé® Drumsticks®.

We love how Nestlé Drumstick cones are the perfect way for us to enjoy ice cream without having to bring bowls and spoons down to the sundeck with us. They also act as instant portion control, which definitely can’t hurt for when the time comes that we do eventually hop into our bikinis and head to the beach for a weekend!

The other day we broke into a box of the new Pretzel Dipped Drumstick cones (…which I may or may not have had two of, shh). We’ve recently tried the other flavors too – Lil’ Drums Caramel Delights in Vanilla Caramel Crunch and Caramel Graham – and they’re equally out-of-this-world delicious.

You can check out all of the new flavors on the Nestlé Drumstick Facebook page.

With our crazy and oftentimes stressful lives in New York City, simply being able to relax, hang out with friends, and enjoy the mild summer weather is nothing short of priceless. And, let’s be real, there’s still something so darn fun about eating ice cream cones on a hot summer day…even when it’s in the middle of a concrete jungle.
