Fancy a pint?

black & tan ice cream (c)2007 AEC…of Ben & Jerry’s?

I’m sure you’ve heard of Guinness ice cream, maybe even seen Ben & Jerry’s Black & Tan, which swirls together chocolate and cream-stout flavors.

But did you know that this pint has a creamy head, too? We had a good laugh a couple of nights ago as we opened the container. Although at first it looks like marshmallows, the “head” is actually fluffy puffs of the cream-stout ice cream.

(And yes, it’s delicious.)

beer, dessert

I haven’t seen this in the stores yet, but it sounds so yummy. I love Guinness!

This is either going to make me the happiest, fattest person in the world or so sad at the mistreatment of a good stout.

I’d have to say, as a stout-and-porter lover, this is a pretty worthy application. And I’m not generally a fan of sweets.

Kudos to Ben&Jerry, but I’ll stick with a Guinness float: 2 big scoops of quality vanilla ice cream in a pint of Guinness.

I’m sure that was their inspiration. And yes, Guinness floats are delish. But the “head” of ice cream is so darned cute! :)

Hi Anita – I never did reply to your last email so here I am belatedly saying welcome home and wishing you good strength for the future.

Stout should help with that.

Did you hear about the Guiness marmite?
Tenuously related to this post I guess…?

thanks, Sam… It’s good to be back in sf. Can’t say as I’ve ever developed the taste for marmite, but I did read about them using Guinness yeast. The stout seems a better use, to me :)

YUM! I LOVE Guiness . . . so guess what I will be stopping off to pick up on my way home. Thanks for sharing.

A fab combination. We used to frequent a place in Brooklyn that served Guinness milkshakes. We were apprehensive at first, but they were delicious.
