Finding the "Americone Dream" in Columbus

by Maureen McCabe on August 26, 2007

boy with ice creamI shop at Kroger’s no wonder I had never heard of ‘Americone Dream’ ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s when Florida’s Chris Elizabeth Griffith gave us the scoop about  the ice cream locator  on ActiveRain a real estate network (and so much more.)

Ice Cream flavors are computerized.  The Ice Cream Locator for Ben & Jerry’s flavors.

Locally if you want to try ’Americone Dream’ from Ben & Jerry’s it looks like you have to go to Giant Eagle or Meijers.   Kroger carries other flavors of Ben & Jerry’s ice creams of course.

Above table is from the Ben and Jerry ice cream locator, consider it a quote.  

I am a fan of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey but I gotta confess I don’t like the chunks of chocolate really.  I think they are just too big and too hard (because they are frozen? The chunks of chocolate in Graeter’s Ice Cream don’t get so hard…)    I love the pecans though and the banana flavor is wonderful, but who asked me, anyway?

The full name of ‘Americone Dream’ is … Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream so even after the tip from Chris  I had trouble with the ice cream locator (if I had read Chris’s entry carefully I would see where she mentions Stephen Colbert but I skim when I read blogs. )

You can search for ice cream flavors by zip code.  There are closer locations for me to find the ‘Americone Dream’ ice cream in Central Ohio, the Meijers on High Street north of 270, the Giant Eagle right across the street or the Giant Eagle on 161.  Lotsa options. 

I used to write about ice cream a lot on my old blog…  Discover Columbus (which used to be called Columbus Best Blog … just to make everything really confused)  but I had to put Discover Columbus on a diet because the majority of searches there were food.  I’m living dangerous here blogging about ice cream.

Discover ice cream in Central Ohio …   great ice cream:

Check out the Americone Dream locater map on NoFactZone.net:

http://www.nofactzone.net/?page_id=7

It has a couple of locations – including a Krogers and Weiland’s Gourmet Market.

They as you send any “sightings” to the the site so the map can be updated.
