Herman Cain and Black Walnut Ice Cream

Posted on Oct 06, 2011

Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain is surging in the polls and getting new attention. Sarah Palin has dismissed him as a "flavor of the week." In response, Cain scooped up the ice cream metaphor and ran with it, saying he is actually "Haagen-Dazs black walnut with substance." Huh?

Personally, I prefer maple syrup to "substance" as a topping on black walnut ice cream. But in any case, we're not sure what he means by this. So we're reaching out to the Cain camp for clarification. He's welcome as a Sporkful guest to explain his ice cream philosophy. And as a former Godfather's Pizza CEO and Burger King exec, we expect he'll have a lot to say that could interest Eaters. /mark
