But not all Ice-Creams are created equally. There are frozen treats and then there are frozen treats, some Ice-Creams, some Ice-Pops, some strange concoctions created by some unique merchant but all delicious.. Well.. Hopefully delicious..
So among all the Ice-Creams out there I'm going to take you on a journey through the world of the frozen treat known as Ice-Cream and show you my favourites so that you too can seek them out and enjoy their awesomeness.. Oh.. And the brain-freeze. You won't forget the brain-freeze for long.
Ben & Jerry's American Apple Pie:
Ben & Jerry's American Apple Pie Ice-Cream is Ben & Jerry's contribution to some of the most popular pies being made into ice-creams and as I've said, I love apple pie. The fact of the matter is this is perfect ice-cream, damn close to perfect anyway.. Maybe not quite perfect, there are some things that could be done better or could be improved upon but it's damn close to perfect.
In this ice-cream there's a wonderful combination of crust, nice crunchy apples which just take to the freezing so well, and ice-cream that just melds so well together and manages to come together into a totally and delicious full-circle. It really is quite good. It doesn't stop just there, though.. When you're eating this you'll notice that as you eat away at the surface and get down into the 'meat' of the ice-cream that you'll begin to find a swirl of strong cinnamon that really just sets the flavours off beautifully. This is a great and amazing ice-cream.
This was a limited run unfortunately, though and I believe that since the time that I tried it which was either 2008-2009 that it's been removed from production. Not 'discontinued' per say, just not kept around, that's a damned shame too.
Blue Bell Banana Pudding Ice-Cream:
At any rate, this shit was amazing. We had it one night when we walked up to the local Walgreens and couldn't resist it's lure, even my indomitable will broke under the pleading of James and the beckoning of this fruity flirt.
Big honest banana chunks, wafer biscuits, creamy vanilla ice-cream, and creamy banana all mixed into one melting pot of amazing. You cannot go wrong with this, it's absolutely mind-numbingly delicious, I mean.. Just.. You have no idea how damn good this shit is until you've tried it, if you've never tried it; go try it.
What is Superman ice-cream? Not a lot of people actually know, in fact the actual definitive answer is definitively elusive on the internet. Most belief is that Superman ice-cream consists of the flavours 'Blue Moon', an ice-cream flavour with bright blue coloring available almost exclusively in the Upper Midwest of the United States, Vanilla, and typically Cherry. Do I know? No..
All I know is that Superman ice-cream is undeniably delicious and whimsical and of all the ice-creams I've ever had or tried in my life, this is my second favourite of all time. My first being so incredibly elusive that I have no hope of having it ever again probably so this is basically and functionally my favourite. Something about Superman ice-cream has been magical for me ever since I discovered it so long ago. Plus just look at it, it's so awesome looking!
Blue Bunny Blue Bubblegum Ice-Cream:
I discovered this late in my life at a local miniature golf-course, it was sold in their ice-cream bar and much to my surprise it was blue with what seems to be little white chunks of gum in it. Strangely there seems to be a slight hint of mint in this which in spite of how it may amaze others, I don't mind; it adds to the flavour. It's a sweet mint and not the type you're used to or thinking of, trust me. It wasn't a mint I'd tasted before I tasted this.
This stuff is creamy and delicious, unbelievably so. The texture of the actual ice-cream itself is so perfect it blows my mind and the bubblegum in the ice-cream doesn't freeze and harden but rather freezes and becomes kind of.. Flaky.. Reducing to a delicious dust like a Razzle and only then after if you retain it in your mouth does it change to gum. I choose the swallow it, it's too delicious to let it trans-mutate into gum.
Much to my dismay in spite of my inquiries, Blue Bunny says the following about this ice-cream flavour;
I can't believe that! They won't sell the stuff to you, they sell it only to specialty stores! What the fuck? This makes me sad, it makes me want to cry; how I crave this ice-cream..
