  4. Haagen-Dazs Japan To Debut Vegetable Ice Cream

    "5 a day" is referring to 5 pints, right?

  5. Things We Saw Today: Facebook-Flavored Ice Cream

    Things We Saw Today

    You won't be able to partake in this social network-themed treat unless you're on Croatia's Murter Island, where the not-sanctioned-by-Facebook confection can be found exclusively in brothers Admir and Ibi Adili's ice cream shop. It's pretty much just plain ice cream with a blue syrup that tastes like "chewing gum and candy" drizzled on top. So it's geared towards kids and looks neat at first but ultimately doesn't have much to it. Fitting. (That's Nerdalicious)

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

    Thing That Might Have to Exist

    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. (via: Laughing Squid)
