This figures. Philadelphia hosts its first Democratic National Convention since Harry Truman was selected in 1948, and the two presumptive presidential nominees are none other than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the two most reviled major-party candidates in the history of American political polling.

That’s not hyperbole. According to the polls, as many as 59 percent of respondents disapprove of Trump. Very nearly as many say the same of Clinton. Big as those numbers are, they fail to capture the loathing and dread that’s gripped the electorate. And who can blame us?

At some point — maybe during one of those gray February days — a thought pops into your head: ice cream. Two scoops of mint chocolate chip. In a waffle cone. At your favorite Shore shop. Or maybe you remember a family tradition — getting up early with the kids and biking to Oves, then all of you licking your fingers clean of cinnamon sugar from the warm doughnuts you just devoured. There’s more: the mid-beach-day pizza break, the bayside seafood-shack feast, the giant stack of puffy pancakes … Shore weekends are, of course, about beaches and bikes and late-night games of dominoes, but nothing quite captures summer like the delicious tastes we dream about all winter. Here are dozens of ways to make sure every bite counts this year.
