Stars: They’re just like us! While they may be living the glamorous life in the public eye, there is one thing that unites us: our mutual love for frozen, delectable treats. And the funny thing is, these ice cream preferences are just as unique as the celebrities themselves.
So if you’ve ever wondered what stars like Tina Fey and Michelle Obama like in their frozen desserts, here is a list of some of the top ice cream choices of the stars.
FLOTUS is going international
First Lady Michelle Obama is a big fan of Philadelphia’s Capogiro Gelato Artisans. This gelato maker is known all throughout the East Coast for serving up heaping dishes of the Italian creamy dessert we have all come to know and love. Open since 2002, the artisans behind the counter have developed over 350 flavors made from fresh, seasonal ingredients. However, it is especially known for Cioccolato con Banana ( Chocolate and Banana ), Thai Coconut Milk, and Strawberries and Cream flavors. Of course, Michelle’s favorite remains just as confidential as other matters of national security.
Ben & Jerry’s Becomes Even More Famous
Who doesn’t love the iconic Ben & Jerry’s ice cream? The sight of those little blue custom ice cream cups with iconic flavors undoubtedly put a smile on your face. The Vermont-based company has even crafted a few special editions for some of its most famous fans, including Will Ferrell and Tina Fey. Will Ferrel’s Scotch Scotch Scotch is based on his character in the Oscar-nominated film Anchorman.
Tina Fey, comedienne extraordinaire, has also been blessed with her own FroYo flavor. Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt is a homage to her character of the same name in the hit series 30 Rock.
Fresh over industrially made
Oprah Winfrey prefers ice cream from Ohio-based Graeter’s Ice cream, which uses the French Pot process in creating ice cream. This technique means each flavor is only made two gallons at a time, which helps to keep the dessert super creamy.
A palate cleanser
Madonna, the “Like a Virgin” diva, loves to finish off her meals with green tea ice cream. Perhaps it helps her vocal cords?
Health food made better
Gwyneth Paltrow, known for her love of all things natural and Goop-y, frequents New York-based Chozen All Natural Ice Cream. This shop is inspired by the owner’s favorite Jewish holiday desserts, and their signature flavors include apples and honey for Rosh Hashanah and Coconut Macaroon in celebration of Passover.
