Living the Americone Dream

Americonedream_lI like to keep abreast of the ice cream rumor mill, among others (nachos, DVR shortcuts, Henry Ian Cusick), so I am all over the buzz about a possible Ben & Jerry’s flavor to be inspired by… Stephen Colbert! YES! The No Fact Zone blog posted a pic of a (possibly fake) mockup of a flavor called Americone Dream — which looks and probably tastes great, but just in case it’s all a big fat lie, help me come up with some alternate flavor names. Here’s what I got:

  • Baby Ruth-iness
  • Strangeness With Candy
  • Butter Know a District
  • White-Chocolate House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

and my personal fave:

  • Dead Bear Claw

Let ‘em rip. Let’s hear it for useless lists!

    Sounds unappealing. I’m just not into an ice cream that tastes like Stephen Colbert.

  • mikey

    I will say that it should certainly NOT be “Stephen Colbert’s Formula 401 – The Ice Cream”

    It’s not that I don’t like Mr. Colbert, but I don’t want to see his smug face on my ice cream… yet, as a picky eater with limited ice cream choices, the flavor sounds fantastic (I love waffle cones). I never really see Ben & Jerry’s locally anyway though, but still… I may have to try it, and pretend Jim Krasinski is on the container instead

    What about…’Green Screen Challenge Supreme': Green Tea ice cream with Pistachios or, ‘Threat-Down Brownie Bonanza’. I also vote NO to ‘Formula 401′. I don’t even want to think about how it will taste.

    Personally, I can’t think of anything I’d rather have than a pint of ice cream that tastes like Stephen Colbert. The fangirls are already drooling.

    How about “Nutty Nation Torte” — of course, the second “t” in torte would be silent!

  • Greg M.

    How about “Chocolate Blades of Thunder,” from the new Tek Jansen adventure, “Operation: Dragontongue”??
    or Tek-ycardiac Arrest; Jansensational Java; Bald Eagle Eye Cherry; Tip of the Fat, Gag of the Finger; Bonbon Notice …

    Oh wait, that’s an O’Reilly flavor. It probably tastes like an a**hole.

  • melissa

    Annie – GREAT flavor names.

  • Stephanie Travitsky

    And if they do sorbet: Sticky Steve Colberry.

  • t-bone

    dreyer’s used to make a flavor exactly like this under their “dreamery” line – it was called “coney island waffle cone.” goooood $h!t.

  • Laurai
