Weird and wacky ice cream news: Which story is fake?

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on September 17th, 2014


Ice cream is tasty – we all know that – but it also attracts its fair share of bizarre news stories. Below are three strange but true recent ice cream-related stories, plus one story made up by the Turkey Hill team. Can you spot the fake story? Sound off with a comment!

1. YER OUTTA HERE! – Think buying someone some ice cream can cost you your job? Think again. A Major League Baseball scout was recently fired after taunting one of his team’s minor league players about his love of sweets. The scout allegedly bought the player, who was on a strict diet, a mini helmet filled with ice cream. The enraged player threw the ice cream at the scout and had to be restrained by teammates.

2. COFFEE FOR ICE CREAM LOVERS – Chocolate-dipped ice cream cones are delicious, no doubt about it, but they’re usually filled with ice cream. A café in Los Angeles has decided to fill them with something else – piping hot coffee. The flat-bottomed cones are lined with sweet chocolate and cost a hefty $8 ($3 for the coffee and $5 for the custom-made cone). “They are delicious,” said the café’s manager. “When you put the espresso in, it melts the chocolate a little and it tastes like a miniature mocha.”

3. A DOUBLE SCOOP AND A JACKPOT, PLEASE! – A Canadian woman who ate her boyfriend’s ice cream treat felt so bad about it, that she decided to go to the store to buy him another. While she was there, she bought a few lottery tickets, and one of them was a $50 million jackpot winner! The couple travelled to Toronto to claim their prize. On their wish list is a trip to Hawaii, a few new cars and — we’re guessing — a lifetime supply of ice cream treats!

4. PROOF THAT FISH REALLY DO LIKE ICE CREAM – Fisherman have been known to use all sorts of things to outsmart fish and land them on a hook, but one angler from Madisonville, Tennessee has found what could be the most irresistible bait of them all — cookie dough. The 37-year-old construction worker tried the bait after discovering the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream in his freezer at home. While using the treat later that day, he landed a largemouth bass that weighed in at 13.5 pounds, just half a pound short of the Tennessee state record.
