Saturday night’s all right for Ice cream

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.
