One treat a day for the rest of your life?

My sister-in-law, Ashley, posed this question last night: what would you choose if you could choose one treat to have every day for the rest of your life and cost/calories/accessibility/consequences weren't factors? She said she would choose the oatmeal raisin cookie from her local bakery or maybe fresh peaches over ice cream with my mom's caramel sauce. I'm still trying to decide...

  1. This is too hard but my first thought was cheese. love the sound of the peaches with ice cream and your Mom's caramel sauce though, wow!

      I would have to say cheese as well. Most things are bearable in the world if you can relax with some cheese.

        To me, cheese is not a treat. It is a staple. Why limit myself to once a day?

          Oh. I didn't read the question like that. We could only have it once a day? I'd change my answer then if that's the cast.

        2. Ice cream (as long as I got to vary the flavors). If I had to pick one flavor then it would be one that a local ice cream shop makes (ebony chocolate ice cream with english toffee pieceds).

          1. Ice cream - but only if I could vary flavors - not sure I could settle on one. If I can't vary flavors, then chocolate chip cookies.

            Fun to think about!

            1. Hot, moist brownie topped by vanilla ice cream and hot fudge; aka Brownie à la mode. You've got the warm, the cold, and a few textures going on.

              But if I were to pick one category, and not just a particular treat, then it would have to be cheese.

                Sweet treat: Brownie a la mode.

                Other things I'd consider would be cheese or beer.

                1. re: Agent Orange

                  That's my choice, too! With or without the hot fudge. Brownies with vanilla ice cream is one favorite things to eat, and the first thing that came to mind when I read this question.

                2. strawberry shortcake

                  only freshly whipped cream thank you
                  lemon pound cake; not plain
                  and REAL strawberries...not those god awful imposters
