Ice cream mania

Filed under: — Aprille @ 2:56 pm

Perhaps you are familiar with the ice cream chain Cold Stone Creamery. I call it Smoosh-Smoosh, because that’s what they do: they take a base flavor of ice cream and smoosh additional ingredients into it. Anyway, there’s one opening up near me at some point (it was supposed to be March, and it’s still not open, which makes me very irritable). I was poking around on their website today, taunting myself with all the flavor combinations they have available. You can also invent your own, which I will probably do, given my penchant for inventing things.

I am particularly charmed by the following combinations:

Apple Pie A La Cold Stone: Sweet cream ice cream, cinnamon, graham cracker pie crust, apple pie filling, caramel.

Caramel Turtle Temptation: Sweet cream ice cream, pecans, fudge, caramel.

Pecan and Cream Passion: French vanilla ice cream, graham cracker pie crust, pecans, caramel.

If I were to invent my own, I would invent the following:

Thanksgiving On A Cone: Mashed potato ice cream, turkey cubes, gravy, stuffing sprinkles

Gummy Bear Delight: Doublemint gum, grizzly bear snouts

    this got out of hand. trust me i deleted most of it.

    i think my wanting to eat these “grizzly bear snouts” would only come from the same place as how i ate all that cod in england. i wasnt going to, but then they said that the cod were going extinct. i figure i might want to eat it after it doesnt exist, so i guess i’ll have to eat it now.

    are grizzly bears even endangered or anything.
    i feel like i want to eat one anyways.
    why do i want to eat protected animals so bad.

    i was going to say things about how if i made ice cream it would be bald eagle flavored, with fudge swirls, but i think that is just more of the animal protection thing.

    Ooh, grizzly! The snout is probably the gummiest part of the bear, too, although you could probably make an argument for the pancreas.

    I myself would enjoy some Realpolitik Swirl, including sweat from the brows of Asian child laborers and a selection of the remaining hairs from Henry Kissinger’s head.

    Also, some serious Rocky Road action should be doable; one of the roads near my house is quite rocky indeed, or at least gravelly.

    On the subject of mashed potato ice cream: when McDonald’s reformulated their milkshakes a few years back (“Triple Thick!”), Holly and I became convinced that they were just dumping a box of dried mashed potato flakes into the mix. Mmm, starchy.

    Leave a McDonald’s shake out for a while and watch it not melt. Ick.

    We ate at the Creamery thingery. It was tasty.

    Do not get the waffle cone dipped in chocolate and covered in nuts/sprinkles, because you will get too full and the waffle cone will have to wait and be dessert the next day. Or, now that I think about it, that makes it awesomer and you should get that.
