I admit to a lingering fondness for a couple of Hood products -- Hood out of Boston was for many decades the biggest dairy operation in New England. The "Hood Sport Sundae Bar" was a brick of vanilla ice cream with a streak of chocolate embedded in the middle, enrobed in a crunchy chocolate shell. You could only get it at Fenway Park -- or so it seemed, I never saw it in stores until recent years -- and it was pretty satisfying for what it was. And the famous Hoodsie Cup was a New England tradition for decades -- chocolate and vanilla ice cream marbled together in a small paper cup with a paper lid, and you ate it with a splintery little wooden spoon that made either flavor taste like pine. You can still get Hoodsies today, but they're inferior to what they used to be, and no longer have Red Sox players on the underside of the lid. They gave up the latter promotion just before I became conscious of them, denying my generation the opportunity of licking ice cream off Tony Conigliaro's face. Sigh.
