They've had that for years. Some of the dead flavors have been resurrected from time to time,

I only eat True American Ice Cream. 100% of the profits goes to Raytheon and I get to enjoy flavors like Minuteman Johnnycakes, Washington's Chopped Cherry, Plain and Airport Bathroom Dark Chocolate Stick with Nuts.

I miss Mission to Marzipan. It doesn't seem to be mentioned on their site and I can't find it anywhere anymore, maybe it was a mirage.

There are few things better than a real good peach ice cream. Has to be a French Vanilla base with lots of freestone peaches. Plenty of pink on the peach.

As I started to read the headline, I thought this was another stupid baby name thread. The sad thing is I bet there is someone out there whose parents have doomed him/her to go through life named Rainforest Crunch.

That does look tasty but I've never heard of Blue Bell before. I suspect it isn't available west of the Rockies.

Every time I see this, my first thought is "aren't we supposed to be PRESERVING the rainforest, not EATING it??"

Savor the taste of a little piece of the rainforest we cut down JUST FOR YOU.

The leopard is peering at you saying "please don't eat my home!" and I'm all like "but... I'm so hungry... can't resist... eating... rainforest..."

There's not just sarcasm here either. The defining claim of most of the "rainforest" products is nuts or coffee beans harvested from the rainforest. On one hand, you could say it finally establishes a commercial value to preserving the rainforest. On the other hand, it's commercializing the rainforest, exploiting it and the native popilation, and could well mean the opposite if the forest is converted into nut or coffee farms.

The story behind the demise of B&J's Rainforest Crunch: http://www.jonentine.com/articles/boston_globe.htm

The plan was that the Xapuri natives would start a massive nut-shelling co-op and prosper (or it's exploiting Third World natives, your choice). But the Xapuri were never able to scale up production and what they did produce was not of commercial quality for the US. Instead B&J's was sourcing its nuts from Brazilian agrobusiness. Either way, harvesting of Brazil nuts isn't supposed to be destructive, Brazil nuts REQUIRE the rainforest around them to produce, they're not plantation-grown. But it wasn't consistent with the "story" created for the product and thus a PR embarrassment waiting to happen.

I've never had Wavy Gravy.

I imagine it would be good with chicken or brussels sprouts

This. For some reason QFC doesn't sell Dublin Mudslide anymore, and that makes me sad because Fred Meyer isn't right down the street.

Although, my waistline is probably thankful for that.

RIP Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough.

Yes :(


Wow, Captain Crunch claimed a "Rainforest Crunch" brand? I don't see how they could claim any of its production was tied to the rainforest. I can only assume they donated 0.1% of the profit to some rainforest-connected thing in a traditional "greenwashing" campaign.

The picture on the left, he's just high. Which is why most adult consumers would eat Captain Crunch. Because you need to be suitably anesthetized so you don't notice that it's cutting the roof of your mouth.

Oh like you've never taken a baggie of crunch-berries to work and then reached into the desk to let one dissolve against your tongue while trying to revolve a locking issue.

Never really liked to go overboard on ice cream additives but if you are a fan of hard to find flavors, get your own ice cream maker - we have a Sunshine brand one that you keep the parts in the freezer, works well, and we make ice cream any darn flavor we want. Want a good peach ice cream? We make a really nice vanilla, put in chunks of blind baked pie crust, and a lot of peach preserves.... mmmm...

Oatmeal Cookie Chunk is the greatest, but I couldn't find it either after I moved. So I went on their website and lo and behold they have a Flavor Locator (^) which was very handy.

/The nearest place I can get Oatmeal Cookie Chunk is 10-15 minutes away, so it's a gamble with the warm weather
