A food addict and connoisseur of tasteful films reviews Food in Film, starring...
In Forrest Gump (1994), Forrest (Tom Hanks) tells a man at the bus stop...
The only good thing about being
wounded in the buttocks... is the
ice cream. They gave me all
the ice cream I could eat.
I'm not sure why a wounded butt merits all the ice cream he could eat. If it had been a tonsillectomy, I could understand. Still, when I consider ice cream in the movies, that's the scene that comes to mind.
Scene: Forrest brings ice cream to Lt. Dan
And an honorary mention goes to Miss Congeniality, (2000) when Gracie Hart (Sandra Bullock) digs into a pint of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream and declares she's going to get "chip-faced" (Miss Congeniality, 2000).
As a sugarholic in recovery, I miss ice cream. Sometimes I make a type of "instant" ice cream with fruit in a high powered blender, but I can't find a healthy version of vanilla. I miss that the most when I eat cantaloupe. I used to love cutting a cantaloupe in half, scooping out the seeds, and filling it with vanilla bean ice cream.
Do you know of a healthy version of vanilla ice cream (with no refined sugar and no artificial sweetener)? Please share!
