The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Where was this on Flag Day?

Blue Bell Creameries in Brenham, Texas, maker of one of the more highly-prized brands of ice cream in these parts, has come up with an oddball flavor called Heart of America, which is something like this:

The ice cream is divided into three sections similar to Neapolitan Ice Cream. One part is a vanilla ice cream with a cherry sauce swirl, a second part is strawberry ice cream with milk chocolate hearts and the third section is vanilla ice cream with a wild blueberry sundae sauce swirl.

Strange concept, but it works — though frankly, I think the chocolate bits detract from the red, white and blue theme.

I think the chocolate may be a demographic reference...

If so, they're, um, unequally distributed. Call the Feds.

Just as long as there's chocolate, I'm sold.

By the way, thanks for the link. I really like your site layout: clean and simple. I was going for that look myself, but I thought I'd add a "daring" banner.

They could have used white chocolate instead.

I have the advantage, in terms of Web design, of being stolid and uninspired. Keeps me from throwing in too much eye candy at the expense of readability. :)

(Hmmm. French vanilla with eye candy. It has potential.)

I am happy to report that the newest upscale coffee joint here in Pavement Narrows has enhanced its profit potential by selling Blue Bell ice cream. I think. It might by Blue "Bird". Anyway, I'll look for the Heart of America.

Hooray for the red, white & blue.
