Gentle Readers, as noted yesterday, The Practical Cook is not afraid to step into the ring on occasion, particularly in the field of ice cream. Thankfully, the flavors of today’s review blend more tastefully than my metaphors. Down to business, who will reign supreme, Jimmy Fallon’s Late-Night Dream or Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream.
Let’s roll the tape, shall we?
So for me personally, after some follow-up research, Late Night Snack pulled into the lead for sheer potato chip value. I enjoy the salty sweet combo, and the novelty is yet to wear off. For my go-to ice cream, it’s still going to be something in the peanut butter or German chocolate families, but I’ve willingly resampled both of these fine ice creams.
If you’re a chunks fan, then Americone Dream is the way for you, as it’s much chunkier and sweeter. Both very respectable entries into the ice cream pantheon.
They are at their core, vanilla ice cream with add-ins, so there is not a lot of additional commentary to be made.
So until the next controversial flavor rolls around, I’m laying off the ice cream. Because here’s what the food pyramid looks like in my freezer currently:
