Thirty-One

So…Baskin-Robbins has Thirty-One flavors of ice cream, right? Well, let’s see if I can name them. I’m going to try to list 31 ice cream flavors. No Googling, no phoning a friend, no polling the audience. Let’s see how I do.

  1. Vanilla
  2. Chocolate
  3. Strawberry
  4. Rocky Road
  5. Cookies ‘n’ Creme
  6. Cookie Dough
  7. Pistachio
  8. Peanut Butter Swirl
  9. Moose Tracks
  10. Chocolate Chip
  11. Mint Chocolate Chip
  12. Black Raspberry (or is it Blue Raspberry?)
  13. Does Rainbow Sherbet count as ice cream?
  14. Peach
  15. Peanut Butter Cup
  16. Black Cherry

Umm…I’m already getting stuck. How can I not think of any other ice cream flavors? Ohh…I know. There was a place my wife and I used to go, though, in New Hope, Pennsylvania. It was called Gerenser’s, and they had the weirdest ice cream flavors. Flavors like:

  1. African Violet
  2. Something-something Tree Bark

Crap. I can’t think of any others. Oh, there’s Ben & Jerry’s. They have weird flavors, like:

  1. Cherry Garcia
  2. Chunky Monkey or something like that

What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I think of any others? I’m going to have to make them up. Here are some other ice cream flavors I think we should have:

  1. Sweet Potato
  2. Pretzel-vania
  3. Taco Grande
  4. Cap’n Crunch
  5. Horseradish
  6. Shittake Mushroom
  7. General Tso
  8. Roast Beef au jus
  9. Cheez Wiz
  10. Louis XV
  11. Banana

Whew. There’s 31. I did it. I’m going to go celebrate with a refreshing cone of General Tso.
