The Delicious Whoppers: A Tale of Chocolate Malt Ice Cream

Sometimes, when I think about it, it makes me sad that such a stupid hamburger and such a great chocolate malt candy have almost the same name. Because one is delicious and the other isn’t. Or so I assume. I don’t think I’ve ever had a burger from a fast food place. Burgers are only good when they come from a restaurant or a BBQ. Why would you ever choose a fast food burger over chicken nuggets? Chicken nuggets are clearly superior. Wait, weren’t we talking about ice cream?
