Ice Cream Maker Debuts Trump and Clinton Flavors in a Head-to-Head Frozen Debate
Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn celebrated the kickoff to election season with the debut of two new flavors inspired by our presidential candidates. If you didn’t get a chance to pick up some for the debate, here’s the cone lowdown: Madam President is a “chile-laced chocolate ice cream studded with Clinton’s own recipe for chocolate chip cookies,” and Make America Orange Again is a “creamy orange-marshmallow flavor,” reminiscent of The Donald’s complexion.
“Whenever you can tell a story through ice cream, we’ll do it,” Jackie Cuscuna, Ample Hills’ co-owner told Food & Wine. “That’s why we came up with these presidential flavors.”
You can purchase these limited-edition flavors in scoop (ranging from $4 to $7) or pint form ($9), or buy a four-pack online for $40.
A portion of the proceeds from both flavors will go toward First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let Girls Learn non-profit organization.
“Years from now we want people to say: The best thing about Trump’s candidacy was the Ample Hills ice cream flavor he inspired,” co-owner Brian Smith told Food & Wine.
