Every Sunday night, my wife and I eat ice cream while watching Game of Thrones. We'd kind of fallen into the pricey habit of grabbing pints from Ben & Jerry's Core series, so we thought we'd just get some budget ice cream. Problem was, the ice cream wasn't ice cream at all.

There are rules, you see-- you can't just call any frozen concoction ice cream. The "ice cream" we were eating tasted a little grainy and not very creamy and it turns out this was because it wasn't ice cream at all but a "frozen vanilla dairy desert."  Next time you're planning to eat ice cream while viewing mind numbing violence and gratuitous nudity on HBO, be sure to read the label!
