- A handwringing parents’ group called One Million Moms is protesting Ben & Jerry’s new flavor Schweddy Balls, which is named after a classic “Saturday Night Live” skit starring Alec Baldwin, Molly Shannon, and Ana Gasteyer. One Million Moms, which is affiliated with the Christan group American Family Association, huffily said of Schweddy Balls: “The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive.” Repulsive! Now, now. I know fudge-covered rum balls aren’t for everyone, but let’s not get hysterical here. [Flavorwire]

- Robert Pattinson is recording an album that will supposedly sound like “stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison.” A source says Robert is “tortured” because music is his first love, but he is forced by this cruel world to be a millionaire movie star heartthrob instead. [Us Weekly]

Ice cream and summer go together like keg stands and frat parties. And when we heard there was a way that you could actually make soft-serve ice cream at home, we thought it might be too good to be true. But the reviews on this powder pink soft-serve maker from Cuisinart say it’s the real deal. The ice cream takes only a half hour to make, which is great for those of us who have short attention spans and impatient bellies (show of hands?) and you can add virtually any flavor or ingredient. Basil peppermint in a waffle cone, anyone?
On a recent boiling hot summer day, we were on a stroll, dripping with sweat from head to ass to toe, craving something cool and refreshing. An answer to our prayers came in the form of a woman selling what she called paletas (also known as “Mexican ice pops”). Not your average popsicle, these babies are packed with fruit and other fresh flavors in wicked combinations like mango-chile, horchata-strawberry, and dulce de leche. We were in heaven. Imagine our delight when we discovered that there was a cookbook — called Palepas: Authentic Recipes for Mexican Ice Pops, Shaved Ice & Aguas Frescas — filled with recipes for these easy-to-make treats. Now all future cravings can be satiated in our — and your! — own kitchen. Hallelujah!

“What color shall we paint the foyer?” is a boring conversation, no doubt. But does Klondike really have to portray listening to one’s wife talk for five whole seconds as a trial for a man? I get it: the game is on, he doesn’t care about the color, he’s trying to be polite. He deserves an ice cream! I guess portraying adult men as overgrown toddlers with no attention span pushes products?
After the jump, another Klondike commercial in which men — gasp! — are affectionate towards one another: Keep reading »
Thank you, Jamie Oliver for telling me what I needed to know in order to quit ice cream completely. Chef, Jamie Oliver revealed on David Letterman what the addictive called castoreum is actually made of. BEAVER ANAL GLANDS. YUMMY. Do not want beaver anal gland in my mouth no matter how good it tastes.And neither does Letterman by the looks of it. From now on I shall refer to the sweet snack as “ass cream.”[Eater] Keep reading »
