We all have our favorite foods that we’d practically walk over hot coals for. Some people’s mouths water over the thought of a sweet chocolate cake – while others could live each day eating just pizza (my hand is raised).
But the question is – do you remember the very first time you tried your favorite food? Most of us would probably say no, as we’ve been eating it since we were little.
One mom was actually filming when her daughter tasted ice cream for the first time. It’s a good thing she was because the baby’s reaction turned out to be absolutely priceless!
California mom, Brittani Jernigan, hopped in the car one day with her family and headed to Baskin-Robbins.
Brittani’s daughter, Blakely, was only nine-months-old at the time of the ice cream store outing, and she hadn’t ever tried the dessert before. Oooh, this girl was in for a treat!
The parents ordered a huge ice cream cone and sat down at a table in the establishment. As for the flavor? It was Baskin-Robbin’s “Gold Medal Ribbon,” which is vanilla and chocolate ice cream with a yummy “caramel ribbon.”

In the video, Blakely is being held by her daddy while Brittani records with her phone.
The baby’s mouth is open wide, then she goes in for a taste of the ice cream cone. It takes her a moment to take in the new delicious flavor.
Suddenly, it hits her…
Blakely’s eyes get huge and her hands immediately go to grab the ice cream scoop. It’s almost like she can’t resist!
Surely if Blakely could talk, likely she’d say something like, “What is this amazing, magic food you’ve been keeping from me!?”
With her tiny hands gripping the ice cream she goes in for another taste.
Brittani and her husband start cracking up over the sight. The baby seems blown away by the dessert, and there’s NO way she’s letting it go!
Her dad tries to say, “Blakely, let go!” But come on, it’s ice cream… Even adults don’t want it taken from their hands.
The baby can’t help but go in for a third bite.
It’s as if she’s discovered her new favorite food and all she wants to do is devour it. Can you really blame her though?
The scene is so adorable that her parents continue to laugh watching her. Although it was super-funny, turns out, they weren’t too surprised about Blakely’s reaction.
Brittani told ABC News:
“We thought it was hilarious, but to be expected with the personality of our daughter Blakely.”
The mom shared the clip on social media and it quickly went viral.
In addition to the video being comical (and cute as anything), many viewers have left amusing comments online as well.
One person wrote on Good Morning America’s YouTube channel:
“She’s like… “Wait… frozen breast milk!!? OH MY Goodness!!!” 😂😂😂”
“RIP TO THE ICECREAM IT DIDN’T HAVE A CHANCE LMAO SHE’S HILARIOUS AND CUTE”
Others could naturally relate to the tiny girl’s reaction over ice cream. It is one of America’s top desserts after all! A viewer commented:
“And that’s how I still feel about ice cream to this day..56 yrs later..lmao”
