Okay.

I don't know what you're talking about, but presumably AC does (assuming that's whom you're talking about).

Is it "Nazi"? Is that one of the certain words?

Oh! Is that it? The Seinfeld reference was offensive?

That's the only thing I could see in that post. And I would imagine AfterEight is no fan of Seinfeld, since it's trivial and mean-spirited.

Actually, After Eight, if you remembered correctly, you would know that I agreed with you (to a point) on the soup thread.

It's hard for me to believe that you wouldn't be familiar with a pop culture reference that 98% of this board (and people in general who were alive in the nineties) would get, but okay. But I can't believe he would think I was actually calling him a Nazi. I think anyone who's read my posts would know that I don't need to resort to childish name calling (or other fallacious practices) to get my point across. It was a allusion which presumably went over After Eight's head.

After Eight accuses me of reading things that aren't there. Such as? I called his post dismissive. It's dismissive in tone. I said that he seems to think that people who like "artisanal" ice creams are merely dupes who are impressed by $10 buzzwords. How else might one interpret:

But someone must be liking it, and buying it. Calls to mind that line in Darling of the Day: "If it's called ragoût de boeuf, it sells the old goulash."

In short, he presented an opinion, and I presented a differing one, and he responded by huffing about how I shouldn't read a thread if I know I'm not going to agree with it. If you're not comfortable with people disagreeing with you, then you might not be ready to play with the big kids.

And on that note, I'll wait for next week's thread about how halloumi and chevre can't compare to good old Kraft singles and Cracker Barrel cheddar.

"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

It seems to me that if AfterEight used certain words, maybe his already condescending posts won't be misconstrued as dismissive, sweeping generalizations about people who like things he doesn't.

I don't like the use of this word ("artisanal", that is), because all I can see is "anal" and that's not something I like to think about whilst eating ice-cream.

Though it could be fun...I guess.

Where's the LIKE button?

Cheyenne Jackson tickled me. AFTER ordering SoMMS a drink but NOT tickling him, and hanging out with Girly in his dressing room (where he DIDN'T tickle her) but BEFORE we got married. To others. And then he tweeted Boobs. He also tweeted he's good friends with some chick on "The Voice" who just happens to be good friends with Tink's ex. And I'm still married. Oh, and this just in: "Pettiness, spite, malice ....Such ugly emotions... So sad." - After Eight, talking about MEEEEEEEE!!! I'm so honored! :-)

I'm astounded -- quite literally astounded -- by intelligent posters who address After Eight as though he were an empathic thinker, when he proves here on an almost daily basis that not only isn't he capable of empathy, but that he also lives in a world where it has no currency, if it exists at all.

It makes for extremely entertaining threads, but I question the motives -- and somtimes the sanity -- of the respondents.

Let's cut to the important part: That Aldi Salsa is astounding. I prefer the garlic & artichoke salsa but there are three different flavors and they are all jaw-dropping-ly good. I had some friends over recently and served them $2.99 Aldi Salsa and 99 cent "restaurant style" chips and EVERYONE complimented me on them.

The Hummus is awesomeness too- especially the red pepper and garlic-lovers flavors. But my Aldi doesn't carry pita bread so I don't pick it up unless I've got a few loaves in the freezer.

And since we're talking about Ice Cream they have these new swirled pops that are sugar-free and are only 10 calories each that are awesome. Better than dreamsicles....and ONLY TEN CALORIES.

No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I had Earl Grey Tea flavored ice cream with minced apricots.
At $3 a scoop on a sugar cone, it was worth the price

I had OLIVE OIL flavored gelato once and hated it. It was what you see is what you get. Cold olive oil!

I had garlic ice cream (at a garlic festival) in England and liked it! (Though the peach was even better.)

I looove banana ice cream, but can't get it in stores where I live.

*what Growl said* although admittedly it's taken me a long, long time to realize arguing with AfterEight is the equivalent of being Alice arguing with the creatures of Wonderland. When I got called on being a misogynist for implying one might gossip with ones friends at lunch, I think I hit the tipping point.

Jay Lerner--your post about anal made me have to do this, I'm sorry http://jezebel.com/5897658/like-ice-cream-then-youll-love-these-delicious-beaver-anal-glands

I've never been too into ice cream--but I love ices, gelato, etc. We have a really great local place that makes all their product on location. They don't use the word artisan--sure it costs a bit more than regular ice cream I suppose, but I like it a lot more as well, and honestly it's not the kind of thing I crave more than once a month, or anything.

It seems gelato is more expensive than ice cream. there's a gelato place around my corner which charges $7.25 for a small cup full.

The best gelato I ever had was at the Festival flea market in Florida. It was mocha almond fudge. I can't stop thinking about it. oy vey!
