Totally Not Breaking Ice Cream News
Like in everything in life, I’m often late. Even with my cooking mags. Mailed to me is: Gourmet, Bon Appetite and Cook’s Illustrated. I usually won’t pick up a magazine for weeks and weeks, but then there will be four days where I will do nothing but flip through my months old publications, tearing out possible recipes and then flagging others for friends’ use. Every time I see BS, I hand him at least three magazine, with notes and stickies, letting him know what I expect him to blog about in the future (or circling panna cotta and semifreddo concoctions.)
I wrote all this to say, the news I’ll be sharing is old. I think I saw this ad in an October 2007 issue. Anyway, Haagen-Dazs unveiled its 2007 “Flavor Search Winner.” I was really effing pumped, obv. I mean, I love ice cream, as proven here, here and here.
Above is the first page that got me super pumped. I wanted something with chocolate, coffee, espresso, caramel, cookie dough, brownie batter, vanilla bean, oreos…
And the winner is…
Total. Fucking. Crap.
Caramelized and toasted together?!?!
I hate them both.
I’m starting a Haagen-Dazs boycott – who’s in!
Photos: Like I said, 80 is obsessed with his new camera, and I take full advantage, making his photograph pages from a magazine.
