St. Augustine, Florida: History, Scenery, And Pie-Filled Ice Cream Sandwiches At Peace Pie!

Pecan Pie and Coffee Toffee Ice Cream SandwichesLondon/Off Our Couch. My love affair with ice cream sandwiches spans back to when I was a kid playing outside in the blistering Hawaiian sun. Suddenly, I would hear the sound of a certain song humming through the air. The song would be followed by a familiar white rectangular-shaped vehicle with some of the most colorful stickers my young eyes had ever seen. These stickers showcased some of the most delectable sweet treats a child could ever dream of! Excitement and anticipation filled the air as children would flock to the colorful behemoth like seagulls fighting for food scraps on a beach. We would stand in line for what seemed like an eternity just to get our hands on our own little piece of heaven. I love ice cream and popsicles, who doesn't? However, my summer salvation came as ice cream in the humble shape of a brown and white rectangle wrapped in a white piece of paper. Back then I thought it was the best thing ever created. It was the classic ice cream sandwich. Two chocolate-flavored cookies stuffed with a wonderfully delicious block of vanilla ice cream inside. Who would've guessed that something so simple would be one of my all-time favorite sweet treats?

St. Augustine, A City for the Pious and the Lay

How many times have we heard that “Florida is Puerto Rico’s largest overseas township?” Definitely, plenty of times. But, despite the assertion being geographically and politically wrong, the fact is that, historically, several thousands of Puerto Rico have been migrating to Florida in search for jobs and better opportunities for their lives and their families’. And, while it may seem there are significant differences between Floridians and Puerto Ricans nowadays, the fact is we share part of our history, particularly with the city of St. Augustine.

St. Augustine gets heart broken by balk

The St. Augustine Knights pulled off one of the best comebacks in school history Tuesday night and then got their hearts broken on a balk. St. Augustine needed a win over Corpus Christi Incarnate Word Academy on the road to earn a share of the TAPPS 4-5A crown and almost pulled it off but ultimately fell in eight innings 7-6. The first thing that should be mentioned is the comeback. St. Augustine was down 6-1 going into the seventh inning and all hope appeared lost.
