Some people have major summer goals. To get that big landscaping project in the backyard done, to get the porch steps painted, to finally read that copy of Pride and Prejudice or to fit into that swimsuit. But in the summer of 2011, my summer goal was to try all 39 flavors of soft serve ice cream at our local ice cream parlor, the Twist & Shout. Aya and I invited people from our community to help us on our taste test quest. We started a column on our local Patch site, called Two People, One Goal: 39 Flavors. We tried three or four flavors each week with our taste taste lasting 14 weeks. Click on the links below to read each episode and see the ratings of all the flavors we tried. Do you like your ice cream in a cup or cone?
