Huge fun, and also very informative. I had no idea that there were that many varieties! This stands testament to the power that music has to evoke sensations in any and all of the other senses. And dammit, now I want raspberries and cream...

And hooray for rock hands!

The National Raspberry Council should license this from you, lol. I appreciate how educational you made this while keeping it bright and fun. Now I want some raspberries!

This is really lovely. I agree about the Council grabbing this and running an ad campaign around it. You sell the dish so happily! I'm thinking I might go save some raspberries fromrotting on their stems in my garden and partake. The giggle is delightful too!
Thanks -as always- for your kind words earlier! Smile

Reminded me of all those old fav folk songs. Hints of really well known song whose name escapes me.

This is such a delicious song in all respects! I loved the details about berry and cream day and definitely want to celebrate it! The melody flows perfectly and your delivery is superb. Really delightful!

Lots of vivid imagery here. Also texture and taste and smell! You hit all the senses.
As a result, of course I'm craving raspberry ANYTHING. Raspberry ice cream is my favorite thing to have them in...but when you mention them in their warm form...mmm that sounds great over some vanilla bean ice cream!
A happy light-hearted ode to something you obviously really love. It shows through.
This put me in a better mood.
