Ice Cream Fun Fact #2834

I researched this one and in some cases, this is true. Now it's got me wondering. I was already going to make sweet potato pumpkin pie ice cream and I've done the zukes, so why no mash? Could be gross. Could be good. 

Whelp, back to chores for me as I await the Breville Beauty to arrive. Have a yummy day and boogie boogie.

  1. Ah, yes food photography at it's finest. All the good lookin' food in magazine are totally inedible. At least they use to be, I wonder if that is changing.

    1. I think it is changing, yes. And I wonder if some of that has to do with so many home cooks taking real pictures.

      Then I also read about a law put in place that if the advert is selling ice cream, that real ice cream is required. But if say the advert is for chocolate sauce, then the ice cream can be mash.

      How long ago that was put into place, I dunno. But interesting either way.

    1. Yes. Got the idea from JenB. She uses sweet potato instead of crappy canned stuff in her pumpkin pies. So I'm gonna try it in ice cream.

  8. Your ice cream flavor sounds divine. Mashed potatoes posing as ice cream not so much.

  11. Food staging... Well, that certainly makes sense. It's a way to keep it from melting, too.

  13. Well, that's one way to make sure those ads don't awake a hunger for the product.

  14. I can see using mashed potatoes for ice cream. I'm sure all those lights would melt the ice cream before any decent pictures could be taken!

    Your sweet potato pumpkin pie ice cream sounds wonderful. I look forward to seeing some samples of that (wouldn't mind being a guinea pig to taste it either!).

  15. It is difficult to get a decent food picture and as already stated, the lights would melt the ice cream.
