Ice cream and libraries may not go together like peanut butter and jelly (melting cream and sugar in library book pages; the stuff of nightmares!), but there’s a group of people that think an ice cream flavor inspired by public libraries is just what the reader ordered!
Who am I to disagree?
How do you like the following suggestions, or can you think of something even better?
Gooey Decimal System: Dark fudge alphabet letters with caramel swirls in hazelnut ice cream.
Sh-sh-sh-Sherbet!: Key Lime or a chocolate/vanilla combination.
Rocky Read: Vanilla with chocolate-covered nuts, chocolate chunks and raisins.
Writer’s Block: Coffee with fudge chunks and nicotine stains.
Chick Lit: Fat-free Peach-Mango swirl with pieces of Chicklet chewing gum.
Chexy Librarian: Demure vanilla on the outside, chocolate-covered cherries and Chex cereal pieces on the inside.
Twilit: Pale-white lemon sorbet with red shoestring licorice and the hair of Robert Pattinson.
Over-Goo Fudge: Chocolate with marshmallow and fudge.
Bookworm: Vanilla with gummy worms and annelid chunks.
Periodicals Cream: Glossy strawberry syrup, some eye-popping sprinkles, but mostly regular vanilla.
Chocolate Chip Bookie-Dough: Banana with chocolate-chip cookie dough. Decent odds.
Of Ice and M&M: M&Ms, Chocolate powder, Vanilla, Fresh bananas. It’s a good plan, but it never fully works.
Out-of-Print Pistachio: Even the nuts have freezer burn!
Reading Rainbow: PBS-sponsored Rainbow sherbet.
