This week’s Weekly Question of the Week question has taken a shocking, emergency turn! Yesterday I made mention of Dublin Mudslide ice cream and received several comments from people who had never heard of it! Who said they could not get it where they lived!
At first it was just one commenter and I thought, “How sad. They must live on an oil derrick, or a tundra, or perhaps on death row.” But then there was another. Then another – all from different areas.
Then I got worried. Was I imagining this? Was coffee-fudge swirl with chocolate chips and Irish Cream just something I’d concocted? Was I, perhaps, entering into some Tyler Durden-esque state, only instead of beating myself up and starting Project Mayhem I was sitting there, imagining eating ice cream? And if so, how lame am I?
I’m pretty sure that’s not the case. Pretty sure. There was talk that it had been discontinued, that it was a St. Patrick’s Day seasonal. So much terrifying talk. But I own some right now. Bought some a couple months ago, too. But is it really the flavor I think it is? I was able to confirm that I’m not insane by running up and down the streets in my pajamas with a pint of Dublin Mudslide screaming at strangers, “CAN YOU SEE THIS?? WHAT’S IN MY HAND? WHAT’S THE FLAVOR?! THE FLAVOR?!” And people were really emphatic that I am not a crazy person.
The funny thing is that I’m not even a big dessert guy. I like a good German chocolate cake, crème brulee can sometimes be just the thing, but generally I don’t flip for them. But Dublin Mudslide? Oh, baby.
So instead of the regularly planned Weekly Question Of The Week for this week, let’s talk about this: What dessert do you just go nuts for? The one that if people have never tried, you feel like you have to go find some for them right now.
