  • New ice cream flavor -- any takers?

    Ice cream maker cooks up April Fools' Day flavor

    March 31, 2003, 12:09 PM EST

    FREDONIA, N.Y. -- An ice cream maker is inviting April fools to line up for a taste of his newest flavor: suffering succotash.

    Scott Aldrich mixed corn and lima beans with vanilla ice cream and threw in pimentos for color.

    The concoction continues his 20-year tradition of making a bizarre flavor in honor of April Fools' Day. "I don't know how we came up with it, we just picked it," he said.

    With 35 gallons on hand, Aldrich Beef and Ice Cream Parlor, about 40 miles southwest of Buffalo, is offering free samples beginning first thing Tuesday.

    Past flavors have incorporated, among other things, sauerkraut, bacon and eggs, and creamed corn

    I like creamed corn.

      Some of those are standard flavors in Japan.
      I like creamed corn.

        Doesn't sound like it would do much for my palate. Now, if he had some sardine flavored ice cream......

          I like creamed corn, seriously.

            Allow me to send a gallon of salted herring flavour to your residence then Ed, courtesy of me. The only charge would be me watching you consume it.

              Thanks for the generous offer Mike. I can honestly say that I haven't found a flavor of ice cream I didn't like (yet!).

                Mike - The thought of that flavor is enough to make my stomach turn!

                I worked in a gourmet ice cream shop in college and we actually had a recipe for pumpkin ice cream...we never could convince the owner to let us make it though!

                  Ohhhhh - pumpking ice cream is delicious!! Just like pumpkin pie - only a little colder! It was the November flavor of the month at the dairy bar at the University of Vermont when I went there (20 years ago! )

                  About the flavor that started all this (corn, lima bean & pimento), I don't know if Chuck was kidding or not, but I know in Vietnam that both corn and beans are used a sweet pudding-like concoction and it's really good! In fact, without the pimento thrown into the mix, I bet that flavor would be pretty good!

                  Tony - I didn't think you were kidding. I like creamed corn too! And sweet corn & tapioca pudding (made with coconut milk - mmmmm!)

                    Finally, somebody takes me seriously.

                      I have this client, who happens to be my biggest client, who has been rubbing me the wrong way.

                      When he calls he's very monotone and he doesn't say goodbye. We all have experienced people like that. He just says ok and hangs up. It's so annoying to me. No thank you,...

                      In the past, I have mentioned how my monopod has been useful in more ways than normal. The incident with the alligator comes to mind.

                      Today I was out at Rodman Dam photographing the flora and fauna and anything else that would sit still long enough. I got this beautiful, beautiful...

                      I'm gonna get fired if you don't start posting here .

                      What *else* do you do? I dabble a little in woodworking, but I don't do much better at that than I do with restorations . Most of the time I'm around the house, and we get the family together whenever possible. This usually happens...

                      Disney On Ice
                      by Ed_L
                      My son had tickets to see Disney on ice, in Chicago. His wife didn't feel good, so she stayed home, and I took her place. I'm not sure who had a better time, my grand daughter, or me. Seriously, it was a good show. A little on the expensive side, with popcorn running $6.00 per box, and cotton candy...

                      Did you ever *really* think about justice?

                      Let me begin by saying that if anyone finds this post to be offensive, post your concerns, and I'll delete it. This is something that appeared in the paper, and it's not about the act, but about justice.

                      Every once in a while, I see decisions handed down by the courts that seem absurd...
