Smooth.  Sweet.  Cold.  Creamy.  I love ice cream!  Ice cream brings up thoughts of childhood, birthday parties and celebrations, summer days and chasing down the ice cream man.  It indeed is one of my favorite things and I wish I could eat it every day.  There was a period of time recently when working at Serendipity Home Made Ice Cream that I did eat it almost every day…and it showed.  Still does a bit to be honest.  You hear people suggest the idea that if you love ice cream and then work at an ice cream shop that you will get sick of ice cream.  No offense but those people are fools.  Sick of ice cream?  I can’t even comprehend the concept.  Sick from ice cream maybe, but sick of ice cream, never.  Serendipity is at 8130 Big Bend in Webster Groves and has been locally owned by Beckie Jacobs for over 12 delicious years.  I was lucky enough to work for Beckie three different times.  Twice as an ice cream maker and most recently as the general manager.  It was a dream job and a lot of fun.  They make all of their ice cream in house and are a full service ice cream parlor that also offers packaged ice cream, novelties, and ice cream cakes.  In addition they do catering and wholesale orders and their ice cream can be found in well over 100 restaurants in the area.  Beckie runs a fun shop.  She is passionate about her business and loves to support her friends in the restaurant and bar industry and has a big list of favorite spots.  She knows everybody and I’m excited to talk with her about all of those things, National Ice Cream Day which is this Sunday, and her recent purchase of The Fire & Ice Cream Truck.
