The weather’s getting colder, but that’s not going to stop you from stuffing your face with frozen treats, right? Hell no!
The summer's over, and people are already talking about hot chocolate and warm pie and other such fripperies. We say: Fuck that. We're not done eating ice cream, and if the weather has a problem with that, it can suck it. But who wants to eat Cherry Garcia when that icy wind's howling down the street? We are men, and we demand our frozen treats with a sprinkling of heroism! So, how does the chisel-jawed, bear-punching manly-man find a way to indulge his sweet tooth without looking like an overgrown toddler? Behold the manliest flavors of ice cream there ever were!

It's a standard equation imprinted onto the psyche of all men from birth: "Beer + Cold= Excellence." So surely a beer flavored ice cream is the holy grail for those seeking maximum refreshment? The guys at Frozen Pints certainly think so. With craft beer flavors like Honey IPA, Brown Ale Chip, and Malted Milk Chocolate Stout, you'd be forgiven for throwing away your customized stein-mug and replacing it with a bowl and spoon. But not so fast there, buddy! Each ice cream serving is made with only a little actual beer, and you'd have to eat a ludicrous amount to get a buzz on. Challenge accepted!

Why not chase that beer taste down with a shot of whiskey-flavored ice cream? The folks at KK whiskey teamed up with Purple Door Ice cream in what we can only assume was some kind of fortuitous supply-truck collision, with results that are as mouth watering as they are intriguing. It's the kind of ice cream you can imagine Don Draper eating as he walks along the beach with a woman who probably isn't his wife. Classy!

With the Internet's growing fascination with bacon and heart disease, it seems it was only a matter of time until somebody combined the salty goodness of cured pig meat with the smooth refreshment of ice cream. These days it feels like a meal is not worthy of a man unless a pig has died for his satisfaction, so this delicious dessert/breakfast treat from Dairyhäus in Rockton, IL, is a great way to incorporate even more bacon into your diet. Try it with bacon sprinkles for added meat-sweats!
