VB Ice-Cream...It's Actually A Thing!

I don’t have fond memories of my first experience with VB.

I was 19 years of age and in my second year of university, I was poorer than a married man with three kids and was desperate to have a beer and watch the footy with my mates.

“VB throwdowns two cartons for $60,” were the words that came out of my mate Wayne’s mouth.

Between four of us that was just $15 each a bargain!

We stole a shopping trolley and wheeled our bounty back to Wayneo’s place to watch the footy.

“I’ll only have a couple, I’ve got a politics exam tomorrow,” were the last words I remember saying.

The next morning I was woken by the worst sound in the world. My alarm.

I had no recollection of the night before, but judging by the pounding in my head I must have got in a fight with Danny Green, Anthony Mundine, Connor McGregor and the All Blacks forward back at the same time.

If my head was bad, my stomach was worst, I didn’t know whether I was going to spew or soil myself or both.

I boarded the train to university (I was in no state to drive) scoffed down a sausage and egg McMuffin, had a vomit and sat the worst exam of my life.

“I’ll never drink VB again,” were the words I said as I exited the exam knowing full well that I’d failed miserably.

To this day I’ve not touched another stubbie or can of VB, I’ve avoided it like Donald Trump avoids mirrors…or intellectual debate.

So you can imagine my surprise when I flicked on the 7 News and heard the headline: Victoria Bitter Ice-cream Is Now a Thing.

Zanette’s Gelati on the Gold Coast has come up with creation and told 7 News that it’s become a hit.

“People just like it of course. Anything with alcohol in it is good isn't it!' Frank Bailey, the owner of Zanette’s Gelati said.
