Snack of the Afternoon, 8/3/09: STEPHEN COLBERT’S AMERICONE DREAM

We all scream for ice cream.

We all scream for ice cream.

After the delicious Thai food, I wasn’t actually planning on having a Snack of the Afternoon. But the Vons grocery order arrived during our table read, and we returned to our kitchen to find that they have given us a free pint of Ben & Jerry’s.

The flavor? Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream. It didn’t take much (er, any) convincing to get me to try it. Anything that Stephen Colbert has to offer is generally delicious (no creepy double entendres intended, but now that I’ve drawn attention to it… ha).

I am not a big caramel fan (and I pronounce it ca-ra-mel, in case you’re wondering), but luckily my scoop was light on the caramel. I am a big fan of chocolate-covered waffle bits! How did they stay crisp? Science!

My two co-workers who also partook in the deliciousness (John & Matt!) were discussing the blend of toppings as if the ice cream were a fine wine. Ha.

Of course I liked this ice cream. To dislike this ice cream would be completely un-American. And also– a TV-show related snack? Best of all worlds!

This is America, and so can you.

This is America, and so can you.

Thanks, Vons! Thanks, Stephen Colbert. And especially… thank you, America.

Oh, and we’re still getting fruit leather. What a wonderful world!

xoxo…

    If you’ve perfected that food emailing technology, could you send me some ice cream please?
