Hollywood sells.. It really does..
Maybe you remember a post I wrote almost exactly one year ago on May 12, 2011: "Some changes and really strange things". It contained pictures of film-themed ice cream. - and because I changed some grammar in it it just went up and appears to be freshly posted on this blog..
By then there were just two kinds of flavors: GONE WITH THE WIND (1939) ("dark chocolate and raspberry with raspberry sauce") and DOCTOR ZHIVAGO (1965) ("lemon, mascarpone and vodka-lemon-sauce")
Of course it was just a question of time until the next flavors were up on the market.. so this year I (not really proudly but with quite an impish smile) present:
ROMEO & JULIET (1968)
("fruity ice cream with blueberries/bilberries and vanilla ice cream with blueberry/bilberry sauce
- plus some white and dark chocolate hearts")
Ever asked yourself how kitschy ice cream can get? Now you have your answer..
Well.. and then we have:
("white chocolate ice cream and nougat ice cream with a chocolate nut sauce and roasted almond slivers")
- we all saw that one coming - didn't we?
And again I ask: What might be next??
Now.. selling things with a little help by Hollywood is nothing new here..
I lately read a book I just bought because of it's cover:
Yup.. that's the wonderful, wonderful Lizabeth Scott - on a cover of a really, really schmaltzy romance novel from 1952.
I loved it. It was great! ... At least five couples in the end.. and just by page 43 there was the first engagement.. It had also a murder for honor - and actually some very, very soft sex scenes.. It was really hilarious. I mean come on: the title is DIE LOCKENDE INSEL = alluring island ...
Plus: it had Lizabeth Scott on the cover.. (And I really, really adore her..)
Well - I really had fun reading that book.. and looking at the cover.. Did I mention who was pictured there?
Thank you all so very much for giving your precious time for such a meaningless post..
Have a great day!
very well and truly,
