Would you eat this book-inspired ice cream?

Did you know that July is the national ice cream month in the United States of America (USA)? In 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July to be the National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month to be the National Ice Cream Day. People of the United States are encouraged to celebrate these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

Who knew that US Americans take ice cream seriously?

To celebrate the ice cream month, Quirk Books has come up with 6 awesome book-inspired ice cream flavours. Here are my top 3 picks:

This flavour is inspired by the Harry Potter series

Berry Potter and the Container of Secrets: Muggles rejoice! Inside this container you’ll find a magical blend of butter beer, Bertie Bott’s Strawberry Flavour Beans and chocolate frogs. No need to employ the Dark Arts.

This flavour is inspired by Anthony Burgess’s ‘A Clockwork Orange’

A Clockwork Orange Creamsicle: A concoction made with milk-plus direct from Korova so disturbingly delicious you won’t have to force it down!

This flavour is inspired by Charles Dickens’s ‘Oliver Twist’

Oliver Twist: Indulge in this mix of rich dark chocolate and simple vanilla flavours with a smattering of English Toffee.  Eat sparingly, for a combination like this begs you to ask “Please, sir, I want some more.”

There are plenty of quirky suggestions by readers of the article! My favourites are:

  • Maltesers Falcon
  • Banana Karenina
  • Star-chip troopers
  • All the President’s Mint
  • Last of the Mochahicans
  • The Grape Gatsby

Malaysia is a tropical country so we eat ice cream (almost) all year round. Too bad these amazing flavours are imaginary. They could be bestsellers in terms of ice cream scoops and book sales.
