Fireworks Ice Cream (Happy Birthday L. Pants!)

I’d like to shout belated birthday wishes to Logan at Boots in the Oven!

Happy Birthday, Dude!!!

For his birthday, L. Pants, awesome cheffer that he is, made red velvet poprock cupcakes! Quite the feat, to be sure. I am drooling at the screen just looking at it.

As an e-present, here’s some poprock ice cream to go along with it.


Stewart’s is a local (to NY) convenience store, using New York dairies for their milk, eggs, and (I think) ice cream.

Their ice cream totally rocks. It’s not super-thick – at times it can be a bit airy. But it’s very creamy, and they have dozens of inventive flavor combinations. Growing up, going to Stewart’s for gas, milk, or eggs always presented the potential for shameless ice cream cone begging.

Fireworks is one such creative flavor – vanilla ice cream with a cherry swirl and candy coated popping candy. Along with cotton candy, this is one of my favorite flavors


Once you open the carton up, you’ll see a ton of red and blue candy coated ‘popping candies’, with the bright red cherry swirl in the center.

Once you begin eating the ice cream, it tastes primarily like the vanilla, and cherry if you get some of the swirl. The coating is similar to white chocolate, and once it melts (or you bite down) you’ll have that delightful popping sensation going on in your mouth.


Happy Birthday L. Pants! Here’s a cup for you!
