Raspberry Ripple

It just occurred to me that here, in the land of a thousand flavors and varieties for everything, this popular UK ice cream flavor does not exist. Can that really be true?

Sounds good, I'll look for it. I'm sure that someone in America's Dairyland is making it. It sounds to good not to make.

Raspberry Ripple, Strawberry Ripple and Neapolitan ice cream; all glorious although the colouring of the Neapolitan was too vivid to be harmless, I'm sure.

What about the raspberry split ice lolly from Walls?
I think that the Lyons version was known as the Mivvi.*

Happy days!

*Yes, it was! Link

They look like a Dreamsickle.
I guess nobody makes them anymore. The Vanilla Ice Cream, dipped in Orange Juice. YUMMY!!!

Raspberry Ripple sounds delicious.

It also sounds like something Fred G. Sanford. would drink.

Neapolitan is definitely here, and some fucker always eats all the chocolate first, somethings are universal....

There is a chocolate ripple here, but I'm not sure if that's universal because it's called Mackinac Island Fudge which is a Michigan thing. Almost fairly unique to Michigan too is Superman, which is apparently the state's favorite ice cream flavor. It's gross.

I'm surprised by that, I looked around a bit and it looks like 'mericans always add chocolate flakes. (Raspberry Truffle)

We got a neat little ice cream maker from Lil Pete and her beau for Xmas. Cuisipro brand, pretty sweet.

Pete made a caramel, peanut butter, and chocolate chunk last night. You could crank out your own Raspberry Swirl.

i don't really like ice cream. I know, weird I have an ice cream maker I'm going to donate if the thrift stores reopen. It's been in the freezer ready to go for years since the kids were little and never, ever been tried. I'm going to get rid of that little freezer once the crisis is over, so I will no longer have space that needs filling

The wife and I, of a collective 29 years of military between us, have long spoken of Day Desert flavor ice cream -- which the wearers of said camo pattern had just as long dubbed "chocolate chips." It could only have wanted chocolate coated sliced almonds for the complete visual effect.

Probably would have been less trouble to make than Rocky Road To Dublin. With Jameson's.

@monster: sounds like my attitude towards champagne, which I take a single flute of ritually on great occasions -- then drink something else.

I don't like champagne either. And I've never seen champagne-flavored ice cream.

We were making room in the fridge after my wife did the grocery run yesterday, and I found a bottle of champagne in there that had been there 3 years. Never drank the stuff.

So I gave it to my son instead to try opening in the back yard with a souvenir sword.

He did the trick where you quickly slide the blade up along the side of the bottle until it hits the lip at the neck. The whole top of the the bottle cracked off with the cork still in it, and flew maybe 20 feet.

That was fun. Then we dumped the bottle out in the grass.

Yeah! He’s right at that transition of being an adult.
