Ben & Jerry's has become known for the names of its ice cream as much as for the ice cream itself. And to celebrate our dearly departed president, it decided to let the public name George W. Bush's ice cream.
Not really. What is true is that after Ben & Jerry's released "Yes Pecan" for Obama, every blogger worth his or her pixels tried to outdo one another by picking an ice cream for W. Somebody had the good sense to round up the names on a list.
Here, in no particular order, are my numbers two through nine favorites:
An interesting fact about the first fake flavor -- Grape Depression -- is that Ben & Jerry's very briefly had a similar name
for a real flavor. At the company's headquarters in Vermont, there's a graveyard with all the flavors that for one reason or another
didn't make it.
In the graveyard stands a headstone for "Economic Crunch 1987."
The inscription reads, "A delightful mash. This flavor we remember for
the stock market crash on the sixth of November."
Look's like its time to bring the flavor out of retirement.
