      There's a Black and Tan Ben and Jerrys flavor on the market but i haven't tried it yet...

        It's pretty good. :) And I don't even like ice cream.

        1. re: Quine

          i thought that wasn't going to make it to stores because of the reaction in ireland.

          1. re: soupkitten

            No idea re Ireland, bought and ate it in NJ and NYC.

          Denise's Ice Cream ( here in Columbus, Ohio, makes a wonderful Guiness Ice Cream. BTW, if you're in Columbus, you're in Ice Cream Mecca...we have Graeter's (, Handel's (, Denise's, Jeni's (, Ben And Jerry's (, Haagen-Dazs (, Cold Stone Creamery (, Johnson's (, Maggiemoos (, Mardi Gras, Hartzler Family Dairy (, Velvet Ice Cream and Ye Olde Mill (, and my personal favorite (besides Denise's), Young's Jersey Dairy ( where you can even pet the cows that make the milk that makes the ice cream...oh, and of course there's 22 Dairy Queens...
          and the latest addition, not far from my house, Sporano's Ice Cream and Gellato where I recently had Black Cherry Zinfandel gellato. Mmmmm, Ice Cream....

              A place called Rustico in the Northern Virginia/DC area has beer popsicles (hopefully still there now that I said this there was a big hub bub over it), they also have Guinness cupcakes. I don't know what beer the popsicle is made out of. Never had either, but just thought I would let you know.

              1. Vintage New York has been selling wine sorbet for a while now. The ones they have are from someplace called Wine Cellar Sorbets ( ). They are really good.

                1. hopefully they have NO alcohol.

                  if yes then it's truly stupid and another thing for parents of teenagers to worry about.

                    Wouldn't the alcohol have to be removed before the popsicle could freeze?

                    1. re: Gio

                      i guess it can freeze: the wine cellar sorbets website says that it "may contain alcohol up to 5% by volume". and they specify that they can only be sold to those over 21. though i have no idea if that's enforced.

                          1. re: bubbles4me

                            that icecube idea is brilliant -- freezing wine for later use in sauces, sure, we all know that one. But avoiding the watering down of whites, that's just genius.

                      1. re: Gio

                        My best recipe for fruit sorbets calls for a tablespoon of vodka for every three cups of sweetened fruit purée. The purpose of it is to slow the freezing process, thus making the sorbet finer-textured with no gritty ice crystals.

                    2. This begs a question that surely our erudite SF hounds can answer concerning this "food-on-a-stick" topic: What type of wine popsicle pairs best with a corn dog?

                        Its so nice to have things to look forward to. My next LAX Holiday Inn stopover from Colombia to Asia; the gas station down below--two pinot popsicles, couple of corn dogs and "cheeseburgers" with all the "sides", pint of Jim Beam, American TV...gasp, pant!
