Tyler, The Creator Is Dropping An Exclusive Ice Cream Pint

Tyler, The Creator is known for making mysterious music, and he is now taking his mysterious flavors to the ice cream game, teaming with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams for a limited edition release.

The ice cream will have two separate release dates, the first one being July 6 on both Tyler’s Website, and his flagship Golf Wang store in Los Angeles.

The second release will be at all Jeni’s shops a couple days later, on July 8.

The flavor is called “Snowflake,” and will consist of cool peppermint, warm spearmint, a dash of sea salt, crunchy white chocolate flakes, and white chocolate melted within the scoops.

In a post, Tyler said, “For as long as I can remember, mint ice cream seemed to always come with every chocolate chip but white. I finally got the two away from their clingy friends and set up a play date for my mouth.”

The pint container is decorated with a minty green color and has a flower covering the front, which is synonymous with Tyler’s Golf le Fleur branding and Flower Boy album.

While rappers and food haven’t always been synonymous, we’re starting to see a trend here, as just last month, Travis Scott had his own exclusive food drop, teaming up with Reese’s Puff’s cereal during Paris Fashion Week.

Those cereal boxes sold out in less than a minute.

If anyone can match that kind of hype, it’s Tyler, The Creator, so we’ll see just what kind of lines there will be at the Golf Wang and Jeni’s stores, and how quickly these sell out online.

Dairy Queen’s Latest Blizzard Is Filled With Sour Patch Kids

 

July is probably your favorite month of the year and you don’t even realize it. Why you may ask? Well because it’s “National Ice Cream Month”! Duh! 

What would National Ice Cream Month be without new and crazy flavor combos? And few ice cream brands are more known for such flavor combos than Dairy Queen. This month Dairy Queen is teaming up with Sour Patch Kids to bring you the NEW SOUR PATCH KIDS Blizzard Treat. The SOUR PATCH KIDS Blizzard Treat blends together the tangy chewiness of Sour Patch Kids Bitz and the sweetness of Sour Patch Kids Redbury Flavor in ice cream harmony. Perfect for the summer sweet tooth.

And if the NEW SOUR PATCH KIDS Blizzard Treat wasn’t enough, DQ created an interactive, mobile-first game called ‘DQ Spoon-A-Pult.’ In the game, players use a red spoon to catapult tiny SOUR PATCH KIDS into pools of Blizzard treats. Poor kids. With a gameplay style similar to Whac-A-Mole, if you’ve ever been in a real food fight, then ‘DQ Spoon-A-Pult’ is right up your alley. The game is available through @DairyQueen Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or on mobile devices by visiting dqspoonapult.com/.  

The NEW SOUR PATCH KIDS Blizzard Treat will be available at participating DQ locations nationwide through the month of July.

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

Someone declared July as National Ice Cream Month.

I would like to thank that someone, whoever she/he might have been.

Thank you, dear someone, for thinking of us, and our obsession with this cold and creamy deliciousness. Much appreciated!

I’m sure it was some big corporation, but let it be – after all, it’s ice cream not tobacco. 🙂

The PB ice cream that you see here was actually a dare. The dare was that I could not make an ice cream taste as good as the Reese’s Cup ice cream.

Are you kidding me? Dad?! We’re supposed to be in this together… “ice cream freaks” is what they dubbed us years ago… Sheeesh…

I make ice cream every other day, and PB cups every other week. I can do this, man.

And I know my adaptation of Reese’s Cup ice cream is just as good (better than) as the original.

This recipe makes 1 (one) quart of Peanut Butter Ice Cream. I then made one batch of these Peanut Butter Cups in my mini muffin pan, and they were really really good.

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

(makes 1 quart)

You will need:

  • ¾ cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted (optional)

Directions:

  • In the bowl of your electric mixer combine peanut butter and sugar and beat until smooth.
  • Add in the heavy cream, milk, and vanilla; mix until well combined.
  • Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and churn for 30 minutes.
  • At this point you can either transfer the ice cream to an airtight container, or read on for directions on how to make those peanut butter cups.
  • Line a 12-cup mini muffin pan with paper liners.
  • Meanwhile, place semisweet chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and melt the chocolate.
  • Dividing evenly, use a spoon to layer half of the semi-sweet chocolate into liners.
  • Place the muffin pan in the freezer for about 15 minutes or until firm.
  • Spoon in the ice cream over the chocolate layer and put it back in the freezer for another 15 minutes, or until firm.
  • Cover the cups with another layer of chocolate and back in the freezer until firm. About 30 minutes.

***Please note that you can make about 36 mini peanut butter cups with 1 quart of ice cream.
