The agony and the ecstasy..of ice cream.

It was fun to hear that my favourite manufacturer of ice cream, Ben and Jerry's (long gone are the days when I thought a De Vito's vanilla cone with the sweet raspberry sauce known in Glasgow as "Tally's Blood" and Horace Demarco's banana splits were the very height of iced dairy sophistication)have flown the flag for LGBT marriage. To celebrate the legalisation of same sex marriage in their native state of Vermont, they have renamed their "Chubby Hubby" "Hubby Hubby"! Most excellent idea. My only cavil is a grump that Chubby Hubby was my personal favourite flavour which they discontinued a year or two back (chocolate and malted vanilla with peanut butter filled pretzels) and I have been trying to find it ever since!! Will this wonderful decadent concoction make its way across the Atlantic again to delight my taste buds? Or will the mingy hippies keep it on the USAnian side of the water? Memo to America: send us yer ice cream!!


  1. Let it be known, hippies: send the Hubby Hubby ice cream abroad!

  2. Yea, let it be unto the world, like, a hearts and minds policy to convert the hard of heart but sweet of tooth unto the paths of righteousness, dudes!
