Would You Eat These Star Wars Ice Cream Flavors?
In a galaxy far, far away - or, you know, Brooklyn, a popular ice cream shop is banking in on the highly-anticipated 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' release by making a Force-approved release of their very own - two delectable flavors of frozen custard inspired by the film. Before you comment with "What the what, @danidee?! How'd they get past Disney?!", the limited edition flavors are a special collaboration between Ample Hill Creamery and Disney themselves. (Yes, sometimes when it's not being an evil miser of a corporation, Disney knows how to be a homie and treat their fans to something great.) And these flavor descriptions are so beautiful I might cry. First, there's the Dark Side: ultra-dark chocolate ice cream with espresso fudge brownie bites, Cocoa Krispies, and white chocolate pearls "to represent the light still hiding in the dark, waiting to burst through." (The company's words, not mine.) Yeah, I bet that PB&J is looking pretty boring right now, Vader. And then, of course, there's the Light Side - fit for members of the Rebel Alliance (or people who just really like vanilla). It's marshmallow ice cream with homemade Rice Krispies and Cocoa Krispies treat clusters "to represent the dark side still lurking within the light." I like how they feel like they need to explain why they put two different types of Krispy treats in there. Bro, it's okay. You already had us at 'marshmallow ice cream'. Who knew Jedis were such supreme foodies? The best part is that Ample Hills is making the ice cream ONLY available online, which means that you don't have to live near their New York location to buy it! (Let's momentarily look past the fact that it costs $36 for a 4-pack and you have to pay for express shipping, shall we?) So with that being said: Are you down to order some Star Wars ice cream? Or are you perfectly content with just sprinkling some Cocoa Krispies on your Thrifty Chocolate Malted Crunch and calling it a day? Let me know in the comments below, and for more things you didn't know you wanted to buy until you opened up Vingle today, follow my SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY collection!
What Was Your First Fandom?
There's nothing like your first. Vingle is awesome because it feels like no matter how obscure my fandom is, there's always someone else here who's into it! So let's take a trip down nostalgia lane and find out how it all began... The Superwholock fandom Did you dive headfirst into the wonderful wild world of Supernatural, Doctor Who, or Sherlock? I was away from fandom for a while, but some amazing Sherlock fic brought me back in. And you all know how that went! Now it's all fanfiction all the time here! Anime fandom I know there are a lot of you out there! The first fic I ever read was anime (and trust me, you don't want to know about the fic that I *wrote*. It was a monstrosity). Lord of the Rings fandom If you speak Elvish, you have my respect. The Marvel/DC fandom Superhero movies seem like they're here to stay. Whether it was Marvel or DC, Daredevil or the Dark Knight, you're gonna have a lot of fun in the coming years! And of course I'll be right there with you. Star Wars fandom I'm so happy for you all. I know Sherlockians have been called the fandom that waited... but you all really waited, didn't you? The Fandom that Lives Harry Potter is definitely a global fandom, and we haven't seen the likes of it before or since. The first fandom Star Trek inspired fandom as we know it today. The fic, the cons, the culture... to use an inappropriate quote "I was alone and I owe you so much". WAS THERE A FANDOM I MISSED??? If so please don't think I love you any less! In fact I probably want to know all about it. Share your first fandom experience!!! Were you a livejournaler in the days of Cassie Clare? Did you get sucked into Tumblr during Mishagate? Or were you one of the old school fans subscribing to zines in the mail? Or hey, is Vingle the first place you've let yourself fan the freak out? That would be awesome too. Let's get excited about our first fandoms!!!
