The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

And don't lick the cone, either

Readers who follow my World Tour antics may recall an instance where I sampled Cake Batter ice cream, which is every bit as sweet and sticky as the name implies.

And now, apparently, temporarily off the market, at least at one chain:

Cold Stone Creamery together with the FDA are notifying the public that products containing "cake batter" ice cream sold at Cold Stone Creamery stores may be associated with outbreaks of Salmonella Typhimurium infection in four states.

I wasn't at a Cold Stone Creamery location when I tried the stuff, but this isn't the sort of thing that makes you feel good about your comfort foods, you know?

They can't use real cake batter, just like they can't use real cookie dough (that would bake) in "cookie dough" ice cream. Those include raw eggs.

Someone didn't watch Good Eats.

The last thing I watched on TV was a City Council meeting, which shows you how au courant I am these days.
