It never occurred to me there'd be an opportunity to quote the rapper, Snoop Dog, in a TOP TEN Story.  But this month the temptation (like ice cream) was irresistible:

“When I'm no longer rapping, I want to open up an ice cream parlor and call myself Scoop Dogg.”

Imagine some of the flavors he could create just from his song titles! THE CALIFORNIA ROLL... DOGGYTAILS... LIFE OF DA PARTY... and of course, THE BOOM!

But as exciting as those flavors might turn out, nothing Snoop could Scoop beats the fabulous frozen treats already offered right here in Delco!
