Idaho’s New French Fry Milkshake Ice Cream Has Me On The Fence
French fries and ice cream are two of the tastiest creations ever produced on the planet Earth. If someone combined the two in a handy tub for you to take home and eat when those late-night cravings hit, would you pay for it?
I love ice cream. I love french fries. I'm not sure I love the idea of french fry ice cream though.
I'll try anything once. I took a cruise to Mexico last summer and tried three food items I told myself at one point in my life I would NEVER eat. Those menu items were frog legs, alligator, and escargot. I figured, when in Mexico, and said to hell with it, and they were all delicious.
The Idaho Potato Commission announced recently that a new french fry ice cream is available to those who wish to give it a taste. You might think, well, I love ice cream and french fries. But would you really want the two together in a cold, creamy form? One of the things I love about fries is that they are served hot; cold fries are horrendous.
VanLeeuwen is the maker of the new milkshake, ice cream, and french fry combination. Even though I initially thought the concoction sounded gross, I have to say it would be much easier for me to sample than escargot. It took me over 40 years to eat a snail, and I'm glad I finally did.
