(seems it is weird food stories week)
It is made by 5 Boroughs Ice Cream whose other flavors include “Jackson Heights Mangodesh,” “South Bronx Cha Cha Chocolate” and “Upper East Side Rich White Vanilla.”
Staten Island borough president James Molinaro was so annoyed by the flavor — which includes brownie chunks, cherries, art-shaped chocolate “crunchies” and fudge — that he decided to give it some free PR. In a letter on his web site Molinaro calls for a boycott:
The stereotyping of our community is as ignorant as it is hurtful. Even the most basic research effort would easily reveal the positive qualities that truly define our community.
Said letter then got the attention of a bored reporter and voila! I hope the makers send him gallons of the stuff in thanks.
Can’t imagine why 5 Boroughs didn’t call the ice cream by the proper name of the 2200-acre heap of trash: Fresh Kills Landfill.
Mmmm, mmmm. That’s good.
