And the fake news story is…

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on September 19th, 2014


On Wednesday, we wrote about four wild and crazy ice cream stories — three were real and one was fake — and challenged you to guess which one was the bogus tale. Before we reveal the answer, we wanted to remind everyone that MONDAY is the deadline for entries into our All Natural Recipe Contest.

To enter, just email your recipe, along with your name and address, to icecreamjournal@gmail.com before Monday, September 22. We’ll choose four finalists to win a one month supply of ice cream and you’ll choose the winning recipe, which will take home a ONE YEAR SUPPLY of ice cream! More details here.

And now, back to the crazy ice cream news. The stories were as follows:

1. A Major League Baseball scout is fired after taunting a player with a free ice cream treat.

2. A cafe in LA unveils a coffee cup made out of an ice cream cone.

3. A woman wins a $50 million jackpot after a stop at the store to buy some ice cream.

4. A fisherman lands a trophy catch using cookie dough from ice cream.

Many of you thought the ice cream cone coffee cup seemed too weird to be true (wouldn’t the cone get soggy?) and many more of you thought the cookie dough-loving fish seemed a little too…fishy. Those of you who guessed that the fishing story was the fake are correct! That one was made up by the Turkey Hill team.

The baseball scout who was fired over some ice cream is true, the lottery-winning woman is true and, believe it or not, the ice cream cone coffee cup is also true. That’s a picture of the treat at the top of this entry. Apparently, the chocolate keeps the cone from getting soggy, but we’re guessing you still have to drink your coffee a little quickly, just in case the chocolate melts!
