Anyone know of another ice cream with Nutella in it?

It had Nutella in it?! I don't think I ever recall seeing that in the stores. My suggestion would be to buy a big jar of Nutella and the best vanilla ice cream you can find and make your own mix.


There sure are a lot of flavors in the graveyard. I wish they described them, I'd sure like to know what "Fudge Behaving Badly" has in it. I remember a couple of those Concession Obsession and White Russian ... mmm. But some of those sound like they are better off retired, I like Cantelope but I don't think it belongs in ice cream.


Dagnabit! Now I really want some White Russian ice cream!

:eek:

If I had known it had Nutella in it, I'd have been all over Wavy Gravy. And now it's gone? Bastids.

Of course, I'm still pretty miffed at them for stopping with the Aloha Macademia. I could hear my arteries clogging, and it was a symphony of indulgent delight.

When I was in college, one of the great, long-running, campus debates was Dastardly Mash vs. New York Super Fudge Chunk. I belonged to the smaller but passionate Dastardly Mash group. Eventually, however, New York Super Fudge Chunk prevailed. I'm still bitter about that. :( I do, however, have a picture of myself and my dog next to Dastardly Mash's gravestone at the B&J factory. :)

Damn. I admit it's been quite a while since I had it but I loved Wavy Gravy. Seeing this thread title got me craving it. :( Oh well, maybe one of the stores around here has a few pints still in stock.

Oh, you mean the ice cream.

There used to be an insane guy who called himself Wavy Gravy who rollerskated around Venice Beach.

Carry on...


PS- there is nothing that tops HD Vanilla Swiss Almond- simple, elegant, ahhhh...

I had no idea it had Nutella ("Kobe's favorite!") in it. I, too, would have chowed it down years ago. I tend to avoid ice creams with "gravy" in the title. You can get Nutella at Trader Joe's - I would just make my own (hmm - had never thought of that before, too.)

You could just buy a jar of Nutella and eat it with a spoon like normal people do.

What?

OK, when I gain ten pounds from eating premium ice cream with nutella blended in, I'm gonna blame someone in this thread...

Oh, and Jeff, believe me, that's the first thing I did after following the link. Now we wait and see. It could be a movement.
I wanna scoooop. I mean... I wanna scooop! Scoooop! SCOOOOP!

We all walk into the freezer section and say...


You can get anything you want, at Ben & Jerry's... 'Ceptin Wavy Gravy.


You know, if one person, just one person does it they may think he's really sick and they won't give him any ice cream. And if two people, two people do it, in harmony, they may think they're both suffering brain freeze, and they won't give ice cream to either of them. And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking in singin a bar of Ben & Jerry's and walking out. They may think it's an organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day,I said fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of Ben & Jerry's and walking out. And friends they may thinks it's a movement.

Nutella? Aw, man! I didn't know that!

I never thought of putting it on ice cream, or of it being in ice cream. What a perfectly brilliant idea. I'll have to try it.

Never thought of it? Heck whenever I have nutella I look around my house for anything I can put it on or in. Plain bread, muffins, waffles, pancakes, french toast (stuffed french toast with the nutella inside) cookies, assorted fruits, mixed with yogurt, cool whip and of course ice cream. Yeah, I tried it that way before I saw this thread, I never knew Wavy Gravy had it in there or I would have bought it.

I've even tried it in beverages; coffee, hot chocolate. If given time I could come up with a nice cocktail.

and if that isn't enough Nutella ideas for you, look here. (http://nutellausa.com/recipes.htm) I have a pie recipe I need to try.

And TellMeI'mNotCrazy don't blame me if you don't have any self control. :p

Psst, get the large jar of Nutella.

Costco used to carry the two-huge-jars-shrink-wrapped-together package of Nutella. Sad that they don't anymore... It's awefully expensive in the regular jars.

Was it really Wavy Gravy, or just some poseur who called himself Wavy Gravy?

I met the real Wavy back in 1984. Quite a guy.

NOBODY FOR PRESIDENT!

Ask Ben & Jerry's to bring them back (http://benjerry.com/our_company/contact_us/forms/resurrect_flavor_form.cfm).I did just that. I also suggested a new flavor (http://benjerry.com/our_company/contact_us/forms/suggestion_intro.cfm) with Coffee Ice Cream, hazelnuts, and a Nutella swirl.

Doh...was racing to the bottom of the thread to see if I'd be the first to cite the authentic WG.

Being from Humboldt, he is a regional celebrity.

Just saw a hazelnut ice cream at the store. It's Blue Bunny brand, called either Hudson River Rapids (I think it was Hudson, might have been another river). I can't find it on the internet- something screwy is going on with Google.

It's not Wavy Gravy, but it might help.


Heh. Did you know he had a book out? From years ago now. It's kind of autobiographical, about his work and the kids camp he runs, etc. Seems like a nice guy, very down to earth.

Never thought of it?

No...I tend to just grab a spoon and dig into the jar. This is why I am not eating it until I have my own place again, so I am not caught doing this.

Oink oink.
