Captain America

In honor of the Fourth of July weekend I decided to write this blog about America's greatest hero (do people call him that? where is my husband when I need him to confirm or deny?), Captain America.

As you know in the next few weeks there will be a movie based on him released, Captain America: The First Avenger. It stars Chris Evans and some pretty British girl. I believe Stanley Tucci is in it as well. I loved him in Easy A. In my opinion the trailer does look decent, I would even say it looks good enough that I would go see it willingly. My husband on the other hand thinks the movie looks GREAT! He has been talking about it for at least a year. As soon as he knew they were making a movie about 'Cap' (that's how he refers to him. I think my husband has a man crush on him) he has been awaiting the day it was finally released. I am sure he probably even squealed at the first trailer when it was released. If you go back and listen to some of his past podcasts, The Two-Headed Nerd Comicast, I am sure he talks about the Captain America comic book and/or movie a few times.

Do you know what makes me excited about the Captain America movie? If you say Chris Evans, you would be dead wrong. He is not my type. I am a Dave Grohl kind of girl, but that is a conversation for another day. What I am excited for is (drum roll please....)Baskin Robbins new Captain America flavor of the month. Oh hells yes! The best part is what they have named it, The Super-Solider Swirl (I die! I die!). This makes me happy. I LOVE Baskin Robbins probably as much as my husband loves ninja's. Infact, I love Baskin Robbins so much when I first signed-up for twitter I tweeted at, to and about Baskin Robbins for a whole week to get them to follow me. I was obsessed with making it happen. In the end, mission accomplished!

Let's talk about the flavor. Before I even knew what it consisted of I told my husband, "If Captain America was a flavor I think he would taste like raspberry, blueberry and sweet creamed butter (is that even real? did I just make this up?)." According to the Baskin Robbins website the flavor is a vanilla base ice cream with a cherry flavored swirl and a "thrilling combo" of blue chips. DELICIOUS! I would so eat me some America.


  1. What the hell are "Blue Chips"?

  2. i think blue chips are chocolate covered in blue chocolate (ie white chocolate)
