Yummy new ice cream treats

TGIF – do you have a reason to celebrate this weekend? Or just treat yourself to a little “happy?” Here’s a great way to do it: new treats from Ben & Jerry’s.

I’ll be on the lookout for these in my area of the US:

  • ‘wich Ice Cream cookie sandwich: chocolate chunk cookies with vanilla fudge chip ice cream smashed between them — yummy! These remind me of those Ben and Jerry’s brownie bars that I couldn’t resist.
  • Berried Treasure – blueberry / blackberry / and lemon swirled sorbet. This proves goodness doesn’t have to be smothered in chocolate (but it never hurts!)

Tasteful or tasteless?

I actually watched an ad on TV the other day, and the music in it really caught me off guard. It was one of the latest Wendy’s ads.

If you haven’t seen one yet, Wendy’s is using the song “Blister in the Sun” by the Violent Femmes in their ads now. Although the jury’s still out on whether the song is truly about the rumored meaning (personal pleasure) or not, the lyrics to this song are definitely not G-rated:

Body and beats
I stain my sheets
I don’t even know why
My girlfriend she’s at the end
She is starting to cry

Although the vocals aren’t used in the Wendy’s ads, it’s such a well known song that it’s impossible not to recognize it.

Wendy’s motto is “do what tastes right” — is this song really a good match for their wholesome family image?

Your turn: Should restaurants use provocative songs like this one in their marketing campaigns?
