If you want a sorbet maker that offers amazing and super-flavorful treats, I’d recommend Scream Sorbet which is featured in this strip!! My family and I first discovered Scream last fall and have been hooked ever since – the manufacturers use a special method to create sorbet that has the consistency of ice cream and is, no lie, the most flavorful ice cream or sorbet I’ve EVER had. If you live in California, go check it out! And, yes, they really do carry Lemon-Beet flavor. My favorite is the Lime Mint, though, which actually tastes like real mint leaves! I find most other mint ice creams don’t taste like they’ve ever even been in the VICINITY of a mint plant.
In these comics, it’s usually Chapel who goes to extremes and makes a drama out of everything, so I wanted this strip to have her mom be the perpetrator of all the fuss – and with frozen treats, no less, which are usually the domain of kids’ obsessions rather than adults’. But we all know that adults can be as silly as all get-out, which is what I like to showcase in my comics.
