    JONESVILLE, MI - A Red Indian ice cream flavor, marketed specially last week at a Jonesville restaurant, has roiled some and sparked a slew of sometimes vicious social media remarks. "If you look at all the major Native organizations, using redskin to describe Indians is frowned upon at the very least, and it is considered blatantly racist and hurtful," Natasha Crall of Hillsdale said on Saturday.

    A new New Jersey ice cream shop called “Dairy Air” has shocked locals with its sexy cartoon cow logo — a bawdy beret-wearing bovine flaunting her curvy, branded derriere that one resident slammed as “offensive and sickening.” “This kind of marketing scheme is the reason we currently have a sexual predator in the White House,” Tingle continued, pleading in the note for the ice cream parlor to “reconsider” the logo design.
  • Edy’s/Dreyer’s frozen custard was awesome during its brief existence

    Edy’s/Dreyer’s frozen custard was awesome during its brief existence Edy’s (or Dreyer’s, depending on where you live) started selling a line of frozen custard in supermarkets about two and a half years ago. It may have been the best supermarket ice cream I’ve ever had. But recently, it’s no longer available at Giant Eagle (Pittsburgh supermarket chain where I shop) or at Target (which used to have it too). A google search shows that Wal-Mart is always out of stock. I guess they stopped making it. Which is a shame. My guess is that some people who had never actually...

    An impressively weird dessert washes ashore in New ZealandAn ice cream shop in Auckland, New Zealand is taking the burgeoning goth dessert trend to new heights by serving a giant chocolate-dipped cone with a mantle and menacing tentacles protruding from the top of creamy sphere. The chef at Giapo Kitchen thought that this undeniably phallic treat would be a nice way to commemorate the 10th anniversary of The Colossal Squid’s arrival at the Museum of Te Papa Tongarewa. Here’s a clip of the chocolate tentacles being inserted into the cone after it’s dipped: The squid dessert is just as spooky...
  • Dondurma Is the Chewy, Stretchy Ice Cream You Need to Know About

    Ice cream is many things: Cooling, sweet, quite possibly the most delicious thing ever invented. But it is not usually stretchy. At least not in the U.S. In Turkey, however, ice-cream vendors can pull, stretch, and toss their ice cream like a Jersey Shore show-off playing games with taffy. New York is filled with all sorts of amazing ice-cream creations, but until now, this stretchy Turkish ice cream known as dondurma has been extremely difficult — almost impossible, really — to find Stateside. That’s all about to change, though: Lezzetli Mediterranean Ice Cream is the first American brand of what...
  • Then They Came For Ben & Jerry's

    Ben & Jerry’s ice cream had to figure it would be one of the last firms in America to come under attack from the liberal misinformation complex. It has created flavors to honor Democrat politicians, contributed to Democrat campaigns and positioned itself well to the left on social and employment issues. It has cultivated an image of the “good capitalist,” which can create jobs, lead in its field and do it all in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. But when there became a bigger fish to fry, all the loyalty the company thought it had earned suddenly dried up....
  • The Absolute Best Ice-Cream Sundaes in New York

    An exceptional ice-cream sundae isn’t a DIY mess of toppings and sauces; it’s a single composed dish that highlights a careful mix of textures and flavors. (Also, sticking with tradition, a sundae involves hard ice cream, not soft serve.) In updating last year’s ranking, we’ve decided to include restaurant sundaes as well as those found at ice-cream parlors. Some are brand-new creations, and others are old, nostalgic favorites, but no matter where they’re served, they’re the absolute best ice-cream sundaes in the whole city. The Absolute Best 1.

    A weeklong series dedicated to exploring everything that’s happening in the world of ice cream right now. Instagram killed the ice-cream cup. The giant, dripping ice-cream cone is the status food-photo of the summer. You know the shot — piled high with as many scoops as gravity will allow, held out by a disembodied hand, as just-melting ice-cream dribbles barely hang on. Always in a cone. These days, the demand for cones is so high that there’s even a start-up devoted to them, the Konery, which sells “premium, artisanal” waffle cones in psychedelic colors and flavors — like red velvet,...

    Manhattan ice cream shop La Newyorkina has introduced what may be the most unique sundae the city has to offer. The Greenwich Village Mexican ice cream and paleta shop tops its new Happy-Hoppy Sundae with chili-coated, crunchy grasshoppers. The interesting insect topping is paired with Mexican vanilla ice cream that has a hint of chili, mezcal infused caramel sauce and a candied orange slice. The spicy, sweet and salty flavors seem like they would be palatable, if you can get past the fact that you are eating a dead bug. Mike Chau, a blogger based in New York, tried the...
  • Which Ice Cream Brand Is Big, Gay — And Defiantly Kosher?

    Kosher ice cream lovers have a lot to celebrate this Pride month, specifically in the form of a pint of Big Gay Ice Cream. That’s because when the ice cream truck-turned-brick-and-mortar shop decided to package its popular soft serve to be sold nationally, it sought and received kosher certification. The pints of soft-serve deliciousness, which debuted in March and are sold in grocery stores and online, are officially under the auspices of the kashrut division of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America. Or, as it is colloquially known, the OU. While it’s understandable that an up-and-coming brand would...

    When Gillie Houston first tried the trendy, low-cal ice cream Halo Top, the experience was “life-changing.” An entire pint has as little as 240 calories — compared to about 1,000 in your average container of Ben & Jerry’s — and, some say, tastes as good as a non-diet dessert. “I think there’s some kind of witchcraft or sorcery involved in the making of it,” says Houston, 24, a writer who lives in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens and has a food-centric Instagram account, @gilliehouston, with more than 101,000 followers.

    "So this dominance thing extends to desserts, too?" When did CNN cease to be a serious news organization and become a clown act? I’m not asking you to trace the beginnings of their liberal bias here. That was probably there from the beginning, and you can have a liberal bias and still be a reasonably serious source of news reporting. At one time, that’s what CNN was. But it fell from that perch at some point. When was it? Was it the moment in a presidential debate when Wolf Blitzer asked the candidates to play “This or That”? Was it...
  • WATCH: CNN Devotes Two Segments to Trump’s ‘Executive Privilege’ for Eating Two Scoops of Ice Cream

    CNN devoted not one, but two segments on how President Trump got two scoops of ice cream while his dinner guests only got one as the network tried to pass off a “scoop” about the president’s eating habits as news. In a segment titled, “Two scoops for Trump,” CNN’s Jeanne Moos talks about Trump’s “executive privilege” for receiving two scoops of ice cream while the three TIME magazine correspondents he had dinner with only got one. “At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone...

    RUSH: I told you yesterday to stop watching the media, that you are not getting an accurate picture. The media’s not even doing what they’re doing… (sigh) Well, it’s a bit of a stretch to say they’re not doing it for national consumption; they, of course, are. But it is really inside-the-Beltway here, because that’s where power is in their minds and that’s where any effective change they want will take place. So the primary objective of the Drive-By Media is to flood the zone in the nation’s capital with this never-ending badgering of “Trump out of control,” “White House...

    It’s more like May here today in Maryland, than February; and our thoughts are turning toward Spring. This King Cake that came in the Better Homes and Gardens email newsletter a few days ago is the prettiest I’ve seen. I like it because the ring is thinner than many that we see, which I think makes it very elegant. believe we’ve featured these ‘tartes soleil’ previously, but this Feta Tapenade one from Smitten Kitchen is especially pretty and the recipe looks good; easy-to-follow instructions/pictures are included: attended a function recently where I had Corn Ice Cream for the...

Read more about that here.Tennessee, more than 1 million people depend on benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program to put food on their tables. Rep. Shelia Butt, R-Columbia, introduced a bill that would stop people from using those benefits, know as SNAP or food stamps, to buy foods high in calories, sugar and fat. Some people in our area think the bill is a good idea. "Milk and food items is fine," said Alan Rogers. "That's what they're for. Just to sustain life. All this other stuff...

    In a discovery that will give nutritionists the shivers, a Japanese scientist has discovered that consuming ice cream for breakfast improves a person's alertness and mental performance. Yoshihiko Koga, a professor at Tokyo's Kyorin University, has carried out a series of clinical trials in which test subjects were required to eat ice cream immediately after waking up. They were then put through a series of mental exercises on a computer.

    Black Lives Matter isn’t anti-police. Blue Lives Matter, a group of active and retired law enforcement officials, issued a statement on Monday demanding all Americans boycott Ben & Jerry’s after the ice cream maker announced its public support of Black Lives Matter last week. “Ben & Jerry’s went beyond making a statement in support of civil rights when they actively accused law enforcement of widespread racism,” Blue Lives Matter wrote. “By spreading these false and misleading statements, Ben & Jerry’s lends an appearance of legitimacy to the baseless claims that police officers are killing men based on the color of...
