Can U2 Flavored Ice Cream Save The World?

U2-coffeeWhen I look at the world I see one thing…ICE CREAM! Who doesn’t like ice cream?

I, for one cannot get enough of that lovey, dovey stuff. So, today I am going to ice cream out loud and say that all the problems of the world can be solved over a bowl of The Sweetest Thing.

The conflict between Israel and Palestine can be solved over a scoop faster than Gaza can strip. Put a bowl of candy floss ice cream in front of Putin, and the Russia/Ukraine dispute is resolved before the bowl gets licked.

Now, Bono can’t personally resolve every problem worldwide – if he could we would have had the new CD three years ago – that’s where U2 ice cream comes into action.

July is National Ice Cream month, and what better way to solve the world’s problems than by launching a new brand of flavor flav, U2 style! The world would be much better off if two scoops beat as one.

Without further ado, here are the newest U2 inspired flavors that are coming to an ice cream truck near you.

Sundae Bloody Sundae
Lemon Sorbet
Cappuccino line on the Horizon
Original of the Reese’s Pieces
Rum days are better than others
Peach Sequence
One Green Tea Hill
A Day without coffee
Miss Pistachio
German Chocolate Cake up Dead Man
Trash, Trampoline & Party Chocolate Swirl
Cookie Dough Delight my way (Ultraviolet)
Beautiful Sorbet
Almond Praline on me
Honeydew you feel loved?
Mudpie Will Follow
Papayahweh
Pecan & Woman
With or Without Tiramisu
Bullet the Blueberry Sky
Cantaloupe help falling in love
Lime Not Your Baby!
Fig swirls are best
Nutcracker Suitest Thing
Plum

Sure, these U2 titled flavors are ridiculously stupid, but isn’t fighting over land borders just as ridiculously stupid? Imagine if two people with different opinions sat across from each other with nothing more than a bowl of ice cream and began to communicate.

My guess is that they would quickly realize that they are more similar than different. I don’t have time for lactose intolerance, never-mind border intolerance.

I can’t believe the news today or the past few weeks. We need more ice cream and fewer bullets, bombs and tanks. Love and Peace or Ice Cream is what I say. The goal is a bowl!

    I haven’t read further than this yet & I’m laughing: “Sundae Bloody Sundae”. Here’s the problem: this blog is going to give me laugh lines! You know those parenthesis on people’s faces who aren’t in their teens, 20s or 30s, which mean that a person has shared many a laugh w/friends & loved ones in life? Yeah, those! If I get those, I’ll have to blame the blog!
    .
    I was just telling someone earlier today I need to start stocking the kitchen w/smaller ice cream cones instead of the jumbo waffle ones I’ve been stocking. I saw a heart doctor saying basically that ice cream is unwise at any size, but I do say that once in awhile a person’s just gotta do what they gotta do, right?! Lol. 😀

    Did u mention the “hottest” fan site – around all that ice cream? Is there a time to turn your eyes away from the melting ice cream? Dici che il fiume trova la via al mare, which roughly translated means: You say that like a river of melted ice cream finds its way to the sea, you will find your way back to me. Something like that. Just a rough translation! Or should I say, a rocky road translation. 😉

    Pam & Joe: some Hilarious flavors there! Some of my favs: ‘Trash, Trampoline & Party Chocolate Swirl.’ I’m in love w/that one. I guess ‘a Shank, Crystal Meth, & a G.E.D. Chocolate Swirl’ didn’t catch on?! That’s mixing blogs right there. Or swirling them!
    .
    Moment of Dark Chocolate: WOW. Instant classic! Not kidding – that one needs to be created ‘in the real world’ or as I prefer to call it ‘the in-person world.’ A flavor we all could surrender to. :)

    Or truly unnecessary, sad wars. The War album notwithstanding, the world would be infinitely better, the skies bluer & clearer “if 2 people w/different opinions” simply “sat across from each other w/nothing more than a bowl of ice cream & began to communicate.” True.
    .
    Ice cream & communication – would tear down walls. They would quickly see “they are more similar than different.” Dust clouds of misunderstanding would disappear w/out a trace. Perhaps the ingredient needed w/the chocolate swirls would just be a dollup of trust…

    Chris, when I was younger I only liked milk chocolate. But now I also enjoy dark sorts of chocolate. I also tried one that was filled with cherry cream and a bit chilli. It tasted delicious!

    They also love performing songs on the back of flatbed trucks while driving through NY City! That was too cool.

    Welcome, Pam! Like u, I only liked milk chocolate when I was younger, then came to appreciate darker chocolate – especially European dark chocolate. It’s good to appreciate that now because now the medical community says it’s milk chocolate that clogs arteries & it’s the European kind of dark chocolate (w/at least a certain amount of cocoa) that’s actually good for you (in moderation). :)

    Lol. Not exactly, Joseph. We could if u want us to, though! But isn’t it just cruel if u don’t provide those now somehow? I mean, now that you’ve got us thinking about it…
    .
    I don’t remember if you’re a Trek or Wars guy, but if only the internet came w/StarTrek-type replicators – mention chocolate & voila! (Well, to be more SciFi correct – you’d have to tell the replicator to do that. Lol.) Now *there’s* a technology the world could use. Wishful thinking, but it’s good to dream out loud sometimes, right? Ice cream, communication, & replicators (for Moment of Surrender, Miss Pistachio, …Lol). :)
