It has recently come to my attention that many people seem to be unable to recognize whether their preferred frozen dessert is ice cream. At last! A modern dilemma I can actually solve, thanks to this handy 2×2:
Is it ice cream?
|10 to 20%||Less than 10%|
|Ice cream flavors (chocolate, vanilla, salted caramel, cookies and cream)||Yes, this is ice cream. Enjoy!||You may be eating gelato, which is ok, as long as you know it isn’t ice cream.|
|Flavors that aren’t ice cream flavors, or maybe not even food flavors (lavender, bone marrow & bourbon cherries — no, I am not making this up)||Artisanal yuppie pseudo-food. Be honest, you would be way happier with a nice scoop of chocolate peanut butter swirl.||I am worried you are eating some kind of vegan coconut thing, which is fine, but don’t delude yourself: that is not ice cream. Go eat a piece of fruit — and no, you can’t call that ice cream, either.|
