Pun-Loving Publisher Designs Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Flavors Based on Classic Books



[View All on One Page]

Ice cream, books, and puns? Thank you, Philadelphia-based publisher Quirk Books. Thank you for enriching my life this way. You can head to their website to see what would be in each of these literature-inspired Ben & Jerry’s flavors, but I’d like to share the description of War and Peach with you here, because it’s my favorite:

“An ambitious, sweeping, and impeccably detailed frozen treat of truly epic proportions, with so many ingredients that you’ll forget most of them existed by the time you’re halfway through your cone. Not easy to get through without a headache, but if you make it, you can brag about finishing it for the rest of your life.”

Check behind the cut for flavors based on Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Oliver Twist, World War Z, and more.

    I’m iffy on calling WWZ “classic” but I love all of those designs. I can even get an idea of what some of the ingredients would be (beyond obvious ones like berry and peach).

    Meh, I think of it as a “modern classic.” I see your point, though.

    One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish is not a pun. It’s the title of the book.
