MONTY PYTHON FLAVORED ICE CREAM?

MONTY PYTHON FLAVORED ICE CREAM?
by Hans ten Cate (with thanks to Chris Hou of Unilever N.V.)
Sunday, 19 March 2006
Ben & Jerry's partnered with Monty Python licensor Bliss House to bring you Vermonty Python, the world's first Monty Python ice cream!
Ben & Jerry's, the South Burlington, Vermont-based ice cream company has recently released a Monty Python themed ice cream!
The company started selling the officially licensed confection, called Vermonty Python, on February 6, according to company sources. The ice cream is only available in the traditional pint-sized containers, and may likely be found in your local grocery store. The packaging features suitably Pythonesque images, mostly a Holy Grail/Spamalot theme (including the Python Grail) and the following text:
And now for something completely euphoric. We interrupt ourselves with much hooting through tin horns to bring you this brilliant new ice cream made from dried shrubbgery & old ceral packets. Don't be daft - we're just having you on a bit, all right? This is a ripping goodlavor, really, so buy it quickly now & run away, silly person, or we shall taunt you a second time!
The flavor is coffee liqueur ice cream with a chocolate cookie crumb swirl & fudge cows. Think tiramisu with chocolate treats! It's fantastic!
Visit: Ben & Jerry's official website and the Vermonty Python page for more information.

I just got some and it is absolutely delicious!! Now, when are they going to make a spam flavored ice cream.

Whewwwwww... I was worried when I saw this that it was going to be spam flavoured. You just never know.

There was a beer going through the brewer's retail here (we buy our beer here in special shops) that was a Monty Python beer.... Monty Python's Holy Grail.. with the grail scratched out and Ale added in. As English Ales go it was poor and weak, though given American beers it may have proved much robust and stronger to American taste buds. No offense to my American friends... but to this Irishman's taste buds yours is a little watery. Not sure if it's available there.. the bottle label was amusing though.

 hope this comes through okay. It's brewed by Black Sheep Brewery from Oxford

I had a bunch of that beer last year.

It was STRONG! Not in alcohol level, just taste.

I couldn't have more than 3 before the taste became overwhelming.

In British terms it rates a little weak... especially from a smaller brewery. Their beers tend to be stronger flavoured than this..... the alcohol content was a little weak as well..... for me it was a little thin and watery.

Ice cream and beer, what a combination! LOL Thanks for sharing, guys. Wonder how the beer compares to American beer...?

As the Pythons said once... American beer is like making love in a canoe... It's f*cking close to water... ahem.

speaking of beer & ice cream...

Black & Tan™ Original Ice Cream 


Original Ice Cream Pints New in 2006!
Cream stout ice cream swirled with chocolate ice cream
We've no idea how many Ben & Jerry's fans might be beer enthusiasts, but we suspect that once you've tasted the way we've blended real cream stout ice cream with a whirl of chocolate ice cream, you might soon be raising more than a few pints of Black & Tan - and more than a few brew-aha!'s too.

Check it out, guys!

In that case, I'm blue pinning this thread so we can all remember and maybe enjoy some of this ice cream.

Toss me a spoon...I want some of that!

It's creamy and sensual, hardly something I'd associate with Monty Python, but hey!

Are there frogs in it...or dead parrots??

Don't I wish!

Some Lupins, cherries, mud, lead and some very small rocks wouldn't have gone amiss either.

A feast fit for Mr. Creosote, I'd say!

Nope! I bought Vermonty Python...not very SPAMY (hey look, a new word!). Now there's a good recipe- Spam Cobbler topped with Vermonty Python!

I wouldn't buy a holy one, as soon as you go outside you'll lose the ice cream. *rolls eyes at own joke*

I want the empty container as a trophy

I have to go to a store across town to get it, but it is worth it!

Finally, found a pint of Black and Tan, right next to the Vermonty Python. Black and Tan is for fans of full-bodied, flavorful beer(not for fans of wimpy american lagers); the tan part tastes just like a lovely cream ale (how do they do that) the black part is chocolate and the taste of both together is nirvana, samadhi, paradise...etc. for beer and chocolate lovers....

Sorry, I've forgotten the point I was going to make.
Well then, let's move on shall we?
And now...for something...completely.....
