Help me DVDTalk.... you're my only hope... Ben and Jerry's ice cream...

No, this is not a Star Wars thread, this is about something much more important.

Ice cream.

In specific the chance to revive one of the best ice cream flavors. One with one of the most unappetizing names:

Wavy Gravy.

The deal is that Ben and Jerry's is having a Raise a Flavor from the Graveyard contest where they will revive one of their cancelled flavors. The flavor with the most votes at the end of the voting period will become re-available.

Let me tell you a little about the magically delicious yet horribly disgusting sounding Wavy Gravy.

"...creation of caramel and cashew Brazil nut ice cream with a chocolate hazelnut fudge swirl and roasted almonds."

They say 'chocolate hazelnut swirl' but I know that describes only one thing. It has Nutella in it. It is the only flavor of ice cream that I've ever found with Nutella in it.

Please, if not for me, place your vote for the children.

Phish Food never sounded good, and the flavor never stuck with me, either. I also read in the newspaper a few years ago about a flavor some other small company came up with in Maine: Lobster and Butter. Yes, it was ice cream.

As far as the voting is concerned, I'm glad to see Kaberry Kaboom on top. I miss this flavor so much. Stripes of strawberry and blueberry ice cream with white fudge-coated Pop Rocks.

I love Wavy Gravy! As long as they never get rid of my favorite flavor (Chubby Hubby), I'll vote for Wavy Gravy!

So you hate laughter and children, is that it? You are an Infidel indeed.

I shall revel in the sound of my own children laughing, as only children can, at the sound of your tears and uncontrolled sobbing when the voting is done, and your miserable ice cream flavor has fallen defeated by the wayside, making way for the victory march of the best flavor ever invented, Kaberry Kaboom! (insert evil laugh)

That's the best "infidelic" I can do.

Just kidding, by the way...I don't even have children!

You can vote once a day, by the way.

Wavy Gravy sounds great.

Hmmm, I like From Russia With Buzz too though...
"A completely caffeinated cross of coffee ice cream with coffee liqueur and dark coffee ice cream with espresso fudge chips. When it departed we sorely wept. But when it was here we never slept."

And the White Russian as well...
"Sweet cream flavored with Kahluaź and Camaya liqueurs and coffee extract. A caffeinated communion, the iron curtain has dropped upon this so-velvet union. It is nyet more."

But I went with Wavy Gravy, because I'm nuts.

I never tasted any of those flavors... ice cream is bad for you, so I don't often eat it. If I do, it's just simple traditional flavors.

I voted for Wavy Gravy, but only because you promised to buy everyone on DVDTalk a quart if it wins.

I stuck in a vote for the Gravy, even though I've never tried the stuff.

Added a last minute vote for you! Good luck.

(btw, i'm so happy that rum raisin has no chance. My ex ate that stuff all the time and it sucks. Oh god, does it suck so badly.)

Crap. I meant to vote for Rainforest Crunch, but it reset to Wavy Gravy and before I realized it, the vote was cast.
