One Slice or Two?

Sorry if you misunderstood the title. I’m not serving up pizza today.

A popular frozen custard stand in St. Louis serves a treat called a concrete. It’s a delicious thing – cold, thick, sweet with the flavor you request. And they demonstrate that it’s made right by tipping it upside down in front of you.

But you eat it with a spoon, not a knife. And if neglected it would melt, not harden.

Concrete was sliced in my neighborhood during some curb repair. The results of a pass with a diamond tipped saw blade revealed an inner beauty.
