What's The Scoop?

I just walked by an ice cream stand that had a hand written sign saying End of Season sale 20% off. I hope that was a joke. It didn’t look like one. I wonder what flavours simply didn’t make it this summer.

mmmmmm Ice cream. My favorite food group.

There is a student who works at my local ice cream shop and every time I see him in school he yells "When are you coming for ice crrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeam?" down the hall at the top of his lungs. I am afraid though, of the Zanzibar Chocolate. It may be the death of me.

Awww, that's really cute. How sweet ;)
There is an amazing gelato place here in Vancouver that has crazy flavors like garlic, green tea, wasabi..you get the idea.

Old Lady said...

Call me crazy, vanilla is my favourite. But like popcorn flavoured Jelly Bellys it is probably the wasabi ice cream that is on sale.

Butter pecan ice cream is revolting and should be banned.

My daughter works in an ice cream parlor. She says they have a customer who always comes in to suggest new flavors.

Summer flavors that haven't worked there.

Strawberry and Steroids
Bayou Hurricane
Dick Cheney's Vanilla with Birdshot sprinkles.
Tom and Katie's Sweet and Suri Swirl.

Maybe Salmon Pate flavor? Breast milk?

Anomie-Atlanta said...

Licorice?

AL said...

i don't know what flavours didnt make it but if they fuck with the kitkats flavoured ice cream, heads will roll...

mellowlee... i think its called mondo gelato... i tried the corn flavour. not as good as it sounds. but the beer flavour was actually not too bad... then again... i am a raging alcoholic with anger issues...

Ice cream - food group. Potato chips - food group. Everything else - food group. A little bit won't kill you Lulu will it? Just a taste?

Those are crazy flavours MellowLee! I'm frightened. Lay's just released potato chips in Spicy Curry flavour here which I'm curious about.

If it had been Ravioli ice cream, I might have stopped O.L.

I'll sign the petition Grant Miller. Draw it up.

Sweet and Suri? Excellent. I ain't trying it though CL.

You win Blog Portland. That's some fine disgusting flavour thinking you've done.

Hmm, I hate licorice but I bet lots of people might actually go for that A-A.

Dale said...

KitKat ice cream Al? That sounds really good!! Beer ice cream? No thanks.

Coaster Punchman said...

No way man, licorice ice cream rocks. It's very hard to come by, because most of the world is too wussy for it. One time as a kid at Baskin-Robbins I got a double scoop cone - one scoop licorice, one scoop pumpkin pie. I was always going for the weird flavors. Still do. (See my sig. other.)

Dale said...

I'd try both of those flavours but I'd turn up my nose probably CP. MellowLee knows a store that has 508 flavours, maybe they have it? And very funny - Poor George seems an apt name.

mellowlee said...

I've tried President's Choice spicy curry rice chips and they weren't bad. They were nothing to rave about either, but that could have had more to do with the low fat, not fried than the spices ;)

Dale said...

My current favourite Mellow is the sea salt and cracked pepper kettle chips. Yummy.

jin said...

Oh! Now I know where my pistachios are going. I got an email from a guy in Canada who asked me to save them for him.
Dale...I dare you to eat the pistachio at 20% off.....
;-)

Coaster Punchman said...

You would turn up your nose at these fabulous ice cream choices? Dale, are you becoming... no, it couldn't be .... your mother???

Coaster Punchman said...

Oh, and thanks for the tip, Mellowlee!

Dale said...

I'll eat the pistachio but only if they weren't spit into or out of the ice cream Jin!

At least I'd try them CP. I'm probably fussier but generally more tactful.

lulu said...

Just a taste? Are you serious? The stuff is chocolate black as ink.....I could eat the whole damn tub.

X. Dell said...

Ravioli ice cream? Sounds like someone's expecting.

Creepy said...

Mmmm, pistachio ice cream. Thank you baby Jesus for the gift of Type II Diabetes.

And there's an ice cream season??? Isn't it always ice cream season?

Dale said...

Alright Lulu, I'll split it with you, geez!

Nope X. Dell, just hoping to get regular old fat.

Doesn't it sound great Creepy? And yeah, that's exactly what I thought - there's a season?

Angela said...

I saw Japanese sardine flavoured ice cream once. Talk about unappetizing! Maybe, just maybe, that's one of the non-popular flavours.

Dale said...

Ewww, that's friggin' gross Angela. I think I just threw up in your mouth a little bit.

Creepy said...

I've seen those Japanese ice creams too. They've got insane flavors like octopus and squid.

Dale said...

Why not just get octopus and squid in a cone and leave ice cream out of it. What did ice cream ever do to deserve this?
