Eidolon


Why I couldn't find any ice cream bars to buy at Interspar last night? There were a lot of tubs of frozen stuff posing as ice cream, but when you looked closer you found out that it was a weird chemical conglomerate. I shouldn't have expected anything more at a large chain store (what can I say, it must've been an ice cream binge and there aren't many options at 8 p.m. on a weekday evening in the country's second largest city). All I really wanted was a Haagen-Dazs bar with dark chocolate over vanilla ice cream or maybe even something like Ben & Jerry's. But nothing of the sort was to be found. I didn't even find any ice cream bars in bulk (I wanted more than one to take home). There were some that you could buy individually, and I picked a very unsatisfactory vanilla one with a strange white frosting. The unsuccessful ice cream bar kept me wondering, what would my evening have been like had I made another choice? Could it be that those ice creams I rejected, the ones hidden away under strange labels marked "Pinko," "UFO," and "Magnum," might have been better? They didn't sound like ice cream, but who knows.

Magnums are probably the best ice-cream-on-a-stick ice cream around here. I also think the kinds that are frozen tvaroh are good, as they taste different enough from what I really want that they aren't pure frozen disappointment. It's like: if you want chocolate and can't get chocolate, it is better to get vanilla (or fruit) than carob, as carob is just too sad an imitation to handle.

In any case: try Magnum next time.

As always, tuckova speaks the truth. Magnum is the shiznit; they recently unleashed some new flavors that pretty much combine every possible sweet substance known to man. It rocks.

I had a Hagen Daz at end of hike on IR, was yummy. Unfortunately milk chocolate instead of dark but not a bad substitute. They weren't ordering anymore as was end of season, nobody to buy them soon. Glad to find your updated version and also share phatic conversation with you recently.
