In the musical Anne of Green Gables there is a song about ice cream that perfectly sums up how wonderful the dessert really is: “Ice cream is anything more delectable/ Than Ice cream /Why even the most respectable eat Ice Cream /It’s wonderful on a summer’s afternoon, In June.” Well if June didn’t rhyme so well the lyricists of the song may have changed the words to July since this month is National Ice Cream Month.
Ice cream is by far my favorite dessert and for many other Americans it is too. But since ice cream has been around for so long, the typical flavors like chocolate, vanilla and strawberry are just not enough for people anymore. With tastes like popcorn, egg nog and bubble gum being created, ice cream is starting to resemble the flavors in a box of Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans. Thankfully when you go to an ice cream parlor, you can get a sample of what you’d like before you make the plunge and get it, unlike the Harry Potter jelly beans.
As a kid waiting in line at the boardwalk for some ice cream, I remember witnessing a guy purchase a cone of bacon flavored ice cream, while the rest of us in line watched in disgust. Now Burger King (although a little late) has jumped on this bacon bandwagon and created their own salty and sweet dessert. It has me curious as to how popular it will really be.
In honor of National Ice Cream Month, check out these images from Newscom of some interesting ice creams…
