With apologies to Elton John, my post about our dairy dietary indulgences.
Since Jennifer currently has an obsession for Mayfield’s Brown Cow ice cream, I thought I’d join her bovine tendencies and find my own cow-themed confection for our thrilling night of ice cream and television. Our saturday nights are a real howl.
Lesson for all you readers: kids make you old – even if you’re young.
So I hit up the local K-Roger and found something completely different: Ben & Jerry’s Vermonty Python. [Cue rioutous laughter or punny groan. Your choice.]
The deets from the package:
Coffee liqueur ice cream with a chocolate cookie crumb swirl & fudge cows
So that’s where I made the cow connection, now on to the Python:
We interrupt ourselves with much hooting through tin horns to bring you this brilliant new ice cream, made from dried shrubbery and old cereal packets. This is a ripping good flavor, really, so buy it quickly and run away, silly person, or we shall taunt you a second time.
Much like the story on the packaging, this flavor is both sublime and ridiculous. It’s a very mild coffee ice cream with a mild alcoholic aftertaste, much like a very smooth Kahlua and cream cocktail. The cookie crumb swirl adds the texture and flavor of a regular cookies and cream ice cream and the cows are just there for comic relief. Though they are actually shaped like cows.
Overall, I give the pint a pi out of googol. Much better than Toad the Wet Sprocket or Crunchy Frog. Better than any amphibious flavor, actually.
Mammals one, Frogs nil.
