Ben and Jerry’s recently temporarily renamed their Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream to “I Dough, I Dough,” after the marriage equality ruling. With that in mind, I got thinking about other ice cream flavors, especially ones named after various Supreme Court justices.
- Sonia Sotomayor: Chocolate, with a hint of cinnamon
- Ruth Bader Ginsburg: a bold, brash raspberry flavor
- Elena Kagan: Chocolate cherry ice cream, a little like Sotomayor, a little like Ginsburg.
- Stephen Breyer: there’s a whole ice cream brand he shares a name with. Isn’t that enough?
- Antonin Scalia: something bitter and a little nutty
- Clarence Thomas: You’ve heard of white chocolate? This would be dark vanilla. After a poor test run, the stray hairs were removed.
- Samuel Alito: vanilla ice milk, which he says is authentic but half the country rejects as unreal.
- John Roberts: chocolate with flecks of peppermint. You think you know what you’re getting, but some times, it surprises you.
- Anthony Kennedy: A variation on Neopolitan, it has the chocolate and vanilla ends, but you never know what will be in the middle, whether it’ll be closer to chocolate or vanilla.
