Kidsmomo Ice Cream Emporium Menu

July 11th, 2010 by


Ah, summer. I am pretty sure my ice cream consumption has gone up 275% since the warm weather arrived. I partly blame Karen, because last summer I was forced to concede to her that more people like ice cream than popsicles. The results still bum me out, so to cheer myself up, I just eat more ice cream and popsicles.

Ice cream isn’t just on my mind, apparently — over at the “On Our Minds” Scholastic blog, they came up with these cool suggestions for book-inspired ice cream flavors, and I’ve decided to add my own delicious Willy-Wonka-esque descriptions to them:

Dessert Menu

The Invention of Hugo Sorbet
The scoop of sorbet you receive is HUGE and every bite is a new flavor. Served by an automaton.

A Sprinkle in Time
The ratio of sprinkles to ice cream has been reversed: a tiny scoop of plain vanilla ice cream, with A LOT of sprinkles. But you’ll have to eat it fast, because the sprinkles rapidly disappear into thin air!

The Berrysitter’s Club: Crunchy’s Grape Idea
Low-fat raspberry ice cream with granola flakes and chopped bits of frozen grapes. (Healthy Option)

Oreo and Juliet
Oreo-flavored ice cream with crushed Oreo bits sprinkled on top. Served with a little plastic dagger instead of a spoon.

Pralines & Prejudice
Simple, creamy praline ice cream. After finishing a scoop, you’ll speak in a British accent for an hour.

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
Three scoops of ice cream, with either 1 scoop of strawberry and 2 scoops of blueberry, or 2 scoops of strawberry and 1 scoop of blueberry. Served with Swedish Fish.

Peppermint Longstocking
Peppermint ice cream served in a (clean) striped stocking. No spoons allowed.

Thanks to the brilliant brains who came up with these flavors for the “On Our Minds” blog! What book-inspired ice cream flavors would you concoct in your kitchen?
