Book-Inspired Ice Cream Flavors To Keep You Cool

Berry Potter and the Container of Secrets: Muggles rejoice! Inside this container you’ll find a magical blend of butter beer, Bertie Bott’s Strawberry Flavor Beans and chocolate frogs. No need to employ the Dark Arts.

To celebrate National Ice Cream Month this summer, Philadelphia-based independent publisher Quirk Books imagined what it would be like if the worlds of books and ice cream collided.

The tasty hybrids features books such as ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’, ‘Clockwork Orange’, ‘War and Peace’, and ‘World War Z’—as ice cream flavors like ‘Berry Potter and the Container of Secrets’, ‘Clockwork Orange Creamsicle’, ‘War and Peach’, and ‘Whirled War Z’.

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish:

Make a wish, look inside your dish

Inside your dish, there’s candy fish

Candy fish in chocolatey goo

inside the goo are marshmallows too

All this combines for the perfect snacks

The perfect snacks to share with a Zax

Whirled War Z: Nothing is off-limits during the impending zombie apocalypse. Gummy worms crawl through a swirl of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream. Beware of the random splattering of cherries. You’ll want to stockpile these rations when the uprising occurs.

Oliver Twist: Indulge in this mix of rich dark chocolate and simple vanilla flavors with a smattering of English Toffee. Eat sparingly, for a combination like this begs you to ask, “Please, sir, I want some more.”

A Clockwork Orange Creamsicle: A concoction made with milk-plus direct from Korova so disturbingly delicious you won’t have to force it down!

War and Peach: An ambitious, sweeping, and impeccably detailed frozen treat of truly epic proportions, with so many ingredients that you’ll forget most of them existed by the time you’re halfway through your cone. Not easy to get through without a headache, but if you make it, you can brag about finishing it for the rest of your life.
