Chill Out With Cuisinart’s Cute Ice Cream Maker

We like eating ice cream year-round, but something about licking a fudge pop while wearing gloves feels a little tragic. Then summer comes and our dedication to ice cream becomes mainstream, rather than sad. Stick it to fair-weather ice cream fans by getting creative with Cuisinart’s bright ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbet maker. This sucker will help you churn out homemade frozen goodness in minutes, making you far and away the most dedicated ice cream eater this summer.

Benicio Del Toro “Sells Out” With Magnum Ice Cream Ad


Apparently, folks are super pissed at Benicio Del Toro for “selling out” and making this commercial with director Bryan Singer for Magnum ice cream. I was mostly confused about why it was so frickin’ long when just one shot of the ice cream bar made me really want it … something about golden chocolate and salt caramel. Om nom nom. But YouTube commenters are attacking the actor, saying things like, “You’re just whores in a capitalist gang bang,” which seems a little harsh. It’s an ice cream commercial—what can be more innocuous than that? It’s not like he’s trying to sell us pills or yogurt that makes you poop! What do you guys think — should we rip Benicio a new one or should we go sit on the grass and eat an ice cream bar? [Inside Movies] Keep reading »

Ice Cream Company Attempts To Sell Ice Cream With Weird, Melting Lady Stuff

Apparently? There’s such a thing as designer ice cream? Kapiti sells ice cream for the “discerning” set (one imagines that if you consume Ben & Jerry’s, you are not discerning), and to hawk their fancy-pants ice cream to the vagina-endowed among us, they created a series of ads featuring lady stuff melting. You know? Like a melting purse? And a melting shoe? Because I know, speaking as a woman, that when I see a melting shoe, the first thing it makes me want to do is eat ice cream. Am I right or am I right? Of the one you see here, Copyranter offers: “it makes me think of hot stinky feet.” And how. Check out the melty-purse one after the jump. [Copyranter] Keep reading »

Ben & Jerry’s Launches “Hubby Hubby” Ice Cream In Support Of Marriage Equality

Ben & Jerry’s is showing their support for marriage equality by changing their iconic ice cream flavor “Chubby Hubby” to “Hubby Hubby” as of today. Sept. 1 is the first day gay couples can marry in the state of Vermont, where Ben & Jerry’s is based. The brand is celebrating the occasion by partnering with Freedom to Marry “to raise awareness about why marriage equality matters and encourage nationwide support for the freedom to marry.” Cool huh?

An Ice Cream To Boost Your Libido?

London ice cream parlor The Icecreamists has found a way to get customers hot and bothered while they chill out with sweet treats. When the shop opens in Selfridges, a London department store, this fall, they’ll be dishing out “The Sex Pistol,” a Viagra-like ice cream.

The price, nearly $20 per drink, is sure to you make your wallet shrink. When will they make a version for the ladies?[NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Spaghetti Ice Cream Is Too Cute For Words

Mamma mia! Why have we never seen spaghetti ice cream before? Italo-philes can buy a hand-pump spaghetti ice cream maker to squeeze out a plate of ice cream or gelato “noodles” and garnish with strawberry sauce and grated white chocolate, grated almonds or coconut flakes for “tomato sauce” and “cheese.”

The hand-held spaghetti makers run from $12 to $22, while the ones for commercial use run in the hundreds. You can even buy inserts to make “fettucine” or “lasagna.” Too cute. Also, we’re hungry. [Spaghetti Ice Cream] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: How Many Hail Marys Will This Ad Agency Be Saying?

Happy National Ice Cream Month!

Sure, July’s most famous holiday is the one celebrating our fine nation’s birth, but let’s not forget one of the month’s other noteworthy events: National Ice Cream Month. In 1984, Ronald Reagan designated the whole month as such, and he also named the third Sunday of July (yesterday) National Ice Cream Day. His proclamation called for people to observe these with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” I neglected to eat any ice cream yesterday, but in the last 10 days of the month, I plan to give ice cream a proper celebration.
