Shell Introduces Ice Cream That You Can Grill With

It looks like Shell has finally figured out a way to combine the awesomeness of ice cream with the grilling power of propane. It probably doesn’t taste very good, though. (Thanks to swarrior216!)

    This is going to make Hank Hill very happy.

    So this explains the gassy feeling I get everytime I eat ice cream from there! Better stay away from the candles now..

    OMG the used a new line instead of a comma!!!!!

  4. Yam says:

    or they mean they have propane, ice, and cream.

    That reminds me of a sign I saw at a gas station outside of Galveston, TX about 20 years ago. The sign read, “We have dead bait snacks beer.” “Dead bait” and “snacks” were on the same line and “beer” ran underneath it. I still laugh about it now and wonder what a dead bait snack might be.

    When I get home, I’m lighting some candles, throwing on my Blair chenille robe, (so comfy!) and settling down with a big bowl of propane ice cream. It’s Friday, I deserve to relax!

    @undefined: Hopefully the beer is Alamo brand

    I picked the wrong day to stop eating propane ice cream.

  9. Mike Richichi says:

    But do they sell propane ice cream accessories?

  10. Mike8813 says:

    Taste the cream, not the steam.

    Whew! Close call there, you saved a bunch of consumers from accidentally not buying propane ice cream or 44oz lottos.

    This isn’t even a typo. You’ve dug through the bottom of the barrel and hit mud.

    This is stupid.

      @robdew2: Yes, that about sums it up/

      @robdew2: It’s Friday and a slow news week. Chill.

    • Crabby Cakes says:

      @robdew2: It’s FRIDAY. I think he’s having a little fun. Lighten up!

      @robdew2: I knew this story would draw a comment from you, because you seem to hate these types of stories. I admit this one isn’t all that funny. But if you hate these types of stories, don’t comment. The editors are judged on the number of page views their stories generate, as well as the comments. So if you don’t like a story, just ignore it.

      @robdew2: Yet another sad case of someone born without a sense of humour. Your donations of propane and ice cream can help us raise the funds we need for research and treatment. Please, won’t you give generously so we can fight this terrible condition?

    Until Ben & Jerry’s says its a flavor, I’m not buying it!

    Sometimes I guess when Consumerist has nothing to say, they play grammar nazi and we should all think how clever they are.

    We were driving through NY State near Cooperstown one year and saw a convenience store sign:

    Ice Cream Sandwiches

    We were repulsed :)

  16. your new nemesis says:

    I’m thinking that flammable ice cream wouldn’t be such a good treat.

  17. lockdog says:

    Maybe they are in an area where there are lots of RVs with propane powered refrigerators? Beer for you, ice cream for the kids and propane so everyone can stay cool and delicious.

    dangit, Bobby!

    On a hot day I can do TWO of those 44 oz sodas, esp for just a bit over a buck each.

    @gStein: I can get it embroidered on a Consumer Reports labcoat for you.

  21. icantreplyright says:

    Is the beer 9.99 dollars or 9.99 cents? I’m so confused!

  22. PølάrβǽЯ says:

    Oh noes, more VZ math! Seriously, what the hell is with the dollar AND cent symbols? Did they let a 5 year old put the sign up?

  23. Anonymous says:

    Culver’s(a frozen custard/burgers chain in the midwest) has a lot of funny signs like this, because they advertise both their custard flavor of the day AND their sandwich of the day, yielding signs saying things like “WALLEYE / BUTTER PECAN” and “STRAWBERRY SWIRL / BBQ PORK.” Ongoing hillarity.

  24. magic8ball says:

    OK, I thought it was funny. Apparently I’m easily amused.

  25. failurate says:

    They taste like burning.

  26. veg-o-matic says:

    @DerangedRoleModel: That ged deng charcoal ice cream just doesn’t perform as well, I tell you what.

  27. runswithscissors says:




    Oh yeah, cuz it’s funny! :)

  28. InsertBullets says:

    in the words of Ralph Wiggum “tastes like burning”
