I declare March 1, 2007, a day of lamentation for the loss of Dastardly Mash ice cream.
I’m sure it was the raisins that did it in. I, myself, arched an eyebrow when I learned there were raisins in the mix with the salted pecans, almonds and chocolate chips. Then I tasted it and the perfection of the name “Dastardly Mash” became clear. Salt. Sweet. The raisins added a texture and toothsomeness previously unknown to me in ice cream. With the nutty crunch, it was heaven with a wink and a nudge.
It surely was divine intervention that led me to that job at Ben & Jerry’s and the ability to taste every flavor. Otherwise, I myself might have missed the Mash in fear of the raisins.
So, bow your heads with me and bemoan its loss.
And comment to me about your favorite discontinued foods….
