If something goes wrong, if someone makes me upset, or if I just need something sweet, ice cream is the thing I turn to. Ice cream can always make a bad day turn good. It is something that I can never get tired of and always have a craving for.

I believe in ice cream. It will always be there for you, no matter who you are. It is like having a best friend that will never judge you in your freezer. Ice cream can always make me feel better no matter what the circumstance; it is always there whenever I need it. I remember one time when I found out something that made me realize that my best friend has been lying to me and talking badly about me to a lot of other people, ice cream was there to make me feel better. It also made me feel better when I have had guy problems.

Another great thing about ice cream is that there are millions of different flavors and styles. There is a flavor for everyone, so everyone loves it. I am pretty sure if I asked everyone at my school who did not like ice cream, no one would say they did not like it, unless they are unable to eat it. One reason is it tastes good at any time. It does not matter if it is right when you wake up, in the middle of the day, or at night; ice cream is always delicious. Now ice cream can go anywhere with you because Dibs has been created! Dibs are little bite-sized ice cream with a chocolate covering. They are brilliant and come in handy on road trips.

Have you ever had a brownie or cake that would not be better with ice cream? I think ice cream goes with every desert. In fact for the most part, ice cream actually makes the deserts taste even better than before.

I believe more people should be like ice cream; the world would be a much more pleasant place to live in. Ice cream doesn’t judge anyone or anything. It is there whenever you need it, and will go anywhere if you want it to. It can help you with anything you wish for, and it will not ever think of itself before you. Ice cream also makes other things better, like deserts. I think that you should make your friends the best they can be.
