I Scream!

Do you like ice cream?
Of course you do.

What's your favourite brand or flavour?
I used to eat an ice cream every day.
Always vanilla - no raspberry, but sometimes a 99.
This quiz got it right.
Your Icecream Flavour is...
French Vanilla!
You're a smooth and silky suave type! You exude class and you believe in tradition. A classical taste who doesn't like things to be too flashy or showy. Climb the Eiffel tower of taste with a spoonfull of you! Oui Oui!
What is your Icecream Flavour?

HOWEVER, I haven't had an ice cream for 5 years

I was clearing out a freezer in an empty flat. There were 3 frozen peas, 10 oven chips and a scoop of ice cream.
I threw the ice cream in the sink (the water was switched off) thinking it would just melt and slither down the plug hole. 2 days later I returned and there in the sink was all that remained....A lump of LARD!
Since that day I have never touched ice cream.
When I saw this lovely retro ice cream van last week I was tempted to buy one.
But I took a picture instead.
Enjoy your ice cream this weekend

There are goody two shoes ice creams like Loseley. Loseley stem ginger and vanilla. Delicious and no lard.


I've had about 2 ice creams in the past 5 years so I beat you, Kaz.

Old Fairclough still gets his fingers in a number of areas doesn't he?

Lard Ice Cream might make a retro-style comeback some day.

I am chocolate apparently. Although I didn't know 2 of the names of the people in the last question. I'm getting very out of touch. Lard eh? At least it must be lard with sugar and flavourings in it. Although I guess that makes it even less appetising. Don't worry though, I'm about to publish some "research" that says ice cream is good for you. Check all the quality papers. It'll be in there.

I was struck by that slogan on the van -- "The Cream of Stalybridge" -- sounded like the expression "The Cream of Society" -- it doesn't seem to sit too well does it, a bit like the lard.

I haven't given the stuff up entirely but it no longer entices me like it once did.

Never mind you've still got sex, alcohol and rock and roll.

Never heard of 'Losely' - is it organic with a very small carbon footprint?

It probaby contains 'organic lard'.

I think he was looking for the lovely Rita.

Perhaps they could deep fry it.

Love the Tretchikoff.

I thought I was safe with Joan of arc. She's such an excellent role model.

I'll look out for the research in the Broadsheets and Berliners - I shall be scrutinising your data.

You may know that the Wetherspoons in Stalybridge is called 'The Society Rooms' - so you may be on to something

I'm a Neopolitan aparently. I thought we'd already established I like all the things that are bad for me. It's not stopped me yet!

I don't like Ice Cream... never had. Even before I just found out it was made from lard. Which I also don't like.

The quiz said I'm Neapolitan which is utter tosh... and the ice cream I hate the most, probably. Which just goes to show something or other.

Proper, nice ice cream is made from cream. Which is kinda lardy, but not lard per se. So I'm sticking with it.

I like vanilla best, or vanilla with swirls of caramel and nuts. Or chocolate sauce. Not lumps of chocolate though, because they break my teeth.

I don't like chocolate or strawberry ice cream and mint choc chip should be banned.

Raspberry ripple is a good, retro choice, but you don't often get it in the quality ranges... only in the lard range.

Seems the Lard Information Council is no more; Googled it, and all the references seem to be about this poster.
Do you think if it made a come-back, it would sort out the National Obesity Problem?

You hedonist you.
There's lots of them in Napoli.

How very unusual.
I agree about Neopolitan - I'd just eat the vanilla from the middle (in pre lard days of course).
I'm beginning to wonder about your answers to the quiz!?

Aah! Hence the name *ice cream*.
It wouldn't be half so popular if it was called *Iced Lard*, would it?

A friend's mum was told to go on a low fat diet by the doctor. She went to Tesco's and asked if they had any 'Low fat lard'.

So perhaps we do need more information.

Blogger I, like the view said...

I got Neopolitan, with the instruction to eat all the flavours

(which if I ever had a Neopolitan I wouldn't as I don't like the green stripe)

the lard proposition has put me off ice cream tho. . .

the chocolate flake is going to look a little lonely in its cone on its own next time I order a 99!

what's the lard content of frozen yoghurt, I wonder?

Blogger KAZ said...

It seems from the comments that - to avoid lard - you simple have to part with lots of dosh and buy the 'designer' type.

Frozen Yoghurt can't be bad - can it?

Hello Mutley:
I see you are a 'back to basic' kind of chap.
My tits justlove it - in the birdfeeder that is.

There are lots of dairy cream ice creams around. Or make one's own...

Hello again Gert:
I'm not really a 'make one's own' sort of person.
You could send me some.

I see when it comes to ice cream - you're an old fashioned kinda guy.
