Of all the smashups I have written about these have got to be the tastiest. Dinosaurs and Ben and Jerry ice cream aren't two things one normally thinks of going together, but digital designer Alejo Malia has managed to take this in a very tasty direction.
Ok, none of them are technically an ice cream flavor. Waffles, cupcakes, cookies, Oreos and donuts are the main ingredients. Still, what is keeping Ben and Jerry's from creating delicious tie-ins to be sold at every Universal Studios Theme Park?
Hey, it worked for other tie-in flavors created by B&J's like Hazed and Confused, Two Wild and Crazy Pies, Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream, Liz Lemon and the original that started it all, Cherry Garcia.
Yes, some can be too overly cute and thought out as happened with now extinct flavors Schweddy Balls, Fossil Fuel, Vermonty Python, Urban Jumble, Cool Britannia, Economic Crunch and Dublin Mudslide.
If nothing else these delicious creations can be there own Saturday morning cartoon series. Like the Transformers the genre mashing possibilities are endless. What candy, breakfast cereal and other kids food manufacturer wouldn't jump on the chance to be the dinosaur flavor of the week?
These half dinosaur, half dessert are bound to leave you with a sweet smile on your face if they don't leave you with a stomach ache after the first few bites.
