    At Least It’s Free-Cone Day While you’re angrily contemplating what exactly your taxes are paying for this year, cool your fury with free ice cream. Those hippie liberals from Vermont are giving away their sweet fatty goodness for nothing! From noon to 7 p.m., experience a tastier equivalent of a Soviet bread line. The ice-cream oligarchy of Ben and Jerry’s will be happy to serve you, but no promises on the availability of Americone Dream. It can be tough to find. Store Locator [Ben & Jerry’s]

    We All Scream for Lobster! If it were us, we might not have named the thing a Lobster-Roll Ice-Cream Sandwich, because it sounds, well, gross. But look at the picture and consider the ingredients: a buttered-and-griddled top-cut hot-dog bun, filled with chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream, and more chocolate sauce. And then remember that had Ed McFarland, of Ed’s Lobster Bar, called it something else, it might not be this week’s Sandwich of the Week. And then where would we be?

    Countdown to Saint Patrick’s Day: C Is for Cookie At Saint Patrick’s Day approaches, the man who might be New York’s angriest blogger, Copyranter Mark Duffy, reminds us of an artifact of our not particularly Irish New York youth: Carvel’s Cookie O’Puss. Specifically, he found what we think is the TV commercial that initially introduced regular Cookie Puss’s Irish friend. It’s from 1982, and dig those low-fi special effects. Copyranter, we thank you for your patronage. Cookie Puss [Copyranter]

    Stephen Colbert’s Excruciating Brain Freeze Last night, Stephen Colbert joined Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield at the Dream Hotel’s penthouse to launch the hip — and hippie — ice-cream company’s new flavor, Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream. We can vouch for the product, which was served gratis to the guests: vanilla ice cream loaded with caramel and fudge-covered waffle bits. But how does the famed conservative pundit feel about being lumped in with such lefty Ben & Jerry’s flavor namesakes as Jerry Garcia, Phish, and, apparently, Willie Nelson? We discussed this and more with Stephen, Ben, and Jerry. When you taste it, what makes you think, This is Stephen Colbert’s ice cream? Stephen: It actually tastes like me. No one will ever find out, because I’m married, but this is what I taste like. Very sweet.
