Literary-themed ice cream

Ben and Jerry’s is considering creating a library-themed ice-cream flavour! How cool is that? What a great way to remind people every day about libraries and books….

And how did this get started? By a librarian and book-lover, of course. 🙂 Librarian Andy Woodworth put up his idea on Facebook and has more than 4,400 people signed up to support it. Woodworth hopes the library-themed ice cream will raise awareness of libraries “in the face of stagnant or slashed state, county, and municipal budgets”.

Some of the proposed flavors are:

  • Gooey Decimal System could combine dark fudge alphabet letters with caramel swirls in hazelnut ice-cream;
  • Dusty Stacks could be a layered ice-cream with speckles of cocoa in every layer;
  • Li-Berry pie could mix lime sherbet with raspberry sauce and pie-crust pieces;
  • Overdue Fine as Fudge Chunk could drop fudge brownies and white chocolate coins into milk chocolate ice-cream swirled with caramel.

The list has me grinning! How about you? Does it appeal to you?

If you could design a library- or book-themed ice cream flavor, what would it be?

I think I would go for an Anne of Green Gables ice cream, with raspberry and lime swirls.
