Carrot cake, like most things in life, makes me think of Pine Cove.
I don’t know how the debate began, but by the end of my third summer working at Pine Cove, the summer staff were engaged in a serious, opinionated discussion about carrot cake.

I wonder why some ice cream companies dye their mint ice cream green and other companies make white mint ice cream.
