The Custard Files: Chocolate Chuckles
We were both excited and apprehensive about this flavor. Excited because it obviously contains chocolate, and anything that contains chocolate is a friend of ours. The apprehension we blame on 30 Rock–on the show, “chuckle” is a local delicacy of Stone Mountain, Georgia*, hometown of Kenneth the Page. What is chuckle, you ask? Well, it’s gross, so click here for an explanation. Even though we are aware this doesn’t exist in real life (…right?), the similarity in name was a bit disconcerting. What made this custard so chuckle-y, we wondered???
We both got shakes and had different reactions. Julianna tasted super-chocolate, like chocolate custard blended with chocolate syrup, while Vanessa instantly tasted chocolate peanut butter. After a few tastes, Julianna came around to Vanessa’s way of thinking. So there you have it, folks–Chocolate Chuckles is a fancy (and worrying?) way of saying chocolate peanut butter. While not the most innovative flavor, it was pretty satisfying.
Rating: 3.5 (average vanessa’s 4 and julianna’s 3)
*Author’s note: Although Stone Mountain is portrayed as Hicksville in the show, in real life it is actually a nice suburb of Atlanta. We very much doubt they eat chuckle there.
