Get the Real Scoop
It’s hip to be square
-Mary Beth Sammons
Thanks to the coolest culinary gadget destined to redefine “block parties” this summer, you no longer have to pop the carton into the microwave or develop biceps of steel serving up ice cream for your kids.
The Cuisipro Ice Cream Scoop & Stack ergonomic scooper does exactly that – it scoops and stacks ice cream, creating cylindrical blocks that can be decorated or stacked for a colorful and creative presentation. Sold in three sweet colors – pink, lime green and white – all you do is make a simple twist-and-lift action, and out pops a 3.75-oz. mini-brick of ice cream.

It’s fun and new, and it adds a luxurious touch to the simplicity of ice cream, but what does this scooper mean for the circular scoop for creatures of habit (like us)? We had a Betty divide on square-versus-scooper ice cream, with editors arguing that there should be “NO SQUARE ICE CREAM” (except for ice cream sandwiches). Another editor says, “It’s hip to be square.”
Let the coneheads rule!
