Mosaic Ice-cream

All the flavors of life in a tub...

Same tub of ice cream getting boring after a while? Wouldn't it be great to have an ice cream with not just two or three but dozens of random flavors?

Not quite like 'superswirl' mix but more like bite size mosaic of hundreds of flavors in a tub. The next bite will always surprise you, and every bite is a different flavor, like toffees, yummm...

Dippin' Dots - Ice Cream of the Future http://www.dippindots.com/
Toss a bunch of these together. [waugsqueke, Apr 05 2002]

Does this qualify as baked? [XSarenkaX, Oct 04 2004]


       A bit like Neopolitan (bands of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla), but more complicated? I suppose it depends how small the flavour chunks are, but I reckon it would be difficult to get a spoonful of any single flavour; each bite would be a potentially unpleasant mix of 3 or 4. How about having the flavours arranged in bands in a tube of card which can be torn away to reveal successive flavours - a bit like a tube of sweets. That way you've got the variety, the surprise AND a purer taste sensation.

       Bertie Bott's All-Flavoured Beans, but frozen?
herilane, Apr 03 2002

       I expected this to be ice cream with bitter herbs... suitable for seder dessert (with a bit of Charoses spooned over it... yum).
waugsqueke, Apr 03 2002

       Let see, in that bite was, chocolate fudge, bubble gum and grape swirl. Yum? Just go to an ice cream parlor, lots to choose from there.
dag, Apr 03 2002

       Right on [blissmiss], if the flavors were tatsefully mixed you could create some new flavor. I just always tend to think destructively first, then constructively. I think this was the thought behind the Ben and Jerrys brands. Hopefully better names though -I mean come on, "Chunky Monkey"?
dag, Apr 03 2002

       At some homemade ice cream places they do have something like this. It's called the end of the day mix, and is exactly that. Usually about a buck or so less than everything else, this ice cream is a combination of what's leftover from that day's product.

       And I was hoping this ice-cream would be web-enhanced.
RayfordSteele, Apr 04 2002

       I want the concoction of flavours that bliss has thought up.
kaz, Apr 04 2002

       I've heard that, before the "Angel" (no relation) episode "I will remember you", there was no such thing as 'cookie dough fudge mint chip' ice cream. Can any ice cream expert / B&J habitue confirm?
angel, Apr 04 2002

       hey dag, i love chunky monkey, and COULD you realy come up with a better name for it?   

       anyhow, about the mosaic ice cream (help! just chipped my tooth on a tile....lol) i guess it would be good if all flavors in one mosaic followed the same theme (chocolates, coffees, fruits or whatever) it might be quite nice. otherwise, it could become a little like eating a handfull of those gourmet jelly beans, just an unrecognisable mis-mosh.   

       i think with a unifying theme, this gets a croisant.
wess, Apr 04 2002

       How do you adjust for flavors with chunks of stuff in them, like cookie dough, rocky road, or (yum) the cheesecakes?
nick_n_uit, Apr 05 2002

       It's been a long time, but I saw at one point a proposal for individually wrapped bites of ice cream. Little cubes, about an inch square or so. It was supposed to be a bucket of all the same stuff, but it shouldn't be too hard to mix...
StarChaser, Apr 05 2002

       Nice idea, baboo ... especially if you put some of San Francisco's own Mitchell's flavors in with the classics. "Mmmm ... butter pecan, Bing cherry, coffee, and ... lychee?"   

       herilane: Bertie Bott's what? You must share details of this confection with us here in the States. It's probably some wonderful sweet that nothing west of the Atlantic can touch, but give it to us anyway. We read about the sweet shop in "Harry Potter"; we can take it.
1percent, Apr 05 2002

       It's _from_ Harry Potter. Both my quote and herilane's annotation refer to JK Rowling's fictional extreme version of mixed Jelly Beans. Each is different, many are unpleasant, and you don't know what it is until you eat it.
jutta, Apr 05 2002

       Jelly Belly actually makes 'every flavor beans'...I've got a bag of them. The little paper thing that came with it mentioned earwax and 'coming soon', vomit flavored.   

       Dippin' Dots, while goofily named, are pretty cool. They only seem to melt when they touch something other than another bit of ice cream. I first had them at the Kennedy Space Center, and said 'NASA has finally come up with an ice cream that will stand up to the Florida sun...'
StarChaser, Apr 06 2002

       You can do that in the local (independent) Italian ice cream shop down the road from me. Quite a good idea.

No ice cream, no dessert. Not even a desert.
