Women need to be featured more prominently on certain things: money, monuments, and of course, ice cream. If manufacturers can use women's bodies to sell cars, beer, and other various dude-bro products, then why can't something that is stereotypically marketed to women empower us as well? We want girl power ice cream, and since Ben & Jerry's is already known for making political stances, why not insert some witty feminism into the flavor arsenal?
All of this art is the property of the uber talented Amanda McCall. Check out all her amazing varieties of Ben & Jerry's classics. Read More

Today’s been a mishmash of goods and bads, to say the least. Bads: I got my wisdom teeth out and I can’t eat solid food for a few days. Goods: I finally have a medical excuse to sleep, read, drink smoothies, sleep and watch Netflix all day. Very bads: It stings like a beeyotch, and being bedridden during summer vacation is probably the worst fate a free-spirited gal like myself can endure, next to lice during summer vacation (a fate I have also suffered).
But enough about me—this post is for you, because no one should go through days like these alone. Read More

It’s summer. It’s hot. It’s the perfect time for a scoop of ice cream. Ice cream that donates a part of the proceeds to organizations in need? Great! Just give me the ice cream. But apparently buying ice cream isn't that simple when the aforementioned organization is Planned Parenthood.
What’s the Scoop?, an ice cream shop in Portland, chose Planned Parenthood as its donation recipient during July; then, a pro-life website picked up the story and so began the barrage of harassment. Read More

Life at BUST HQ is already pretty sweet, but never more so than when we find a large shipment of ice cream at our door. The folks at Figo! Organic Gelato were nice enough to send us pints of their gelato to try out, and we were all too eager to take them up on the offer. Figo! is a brand new ice cream that "use a proprietary slow-churn process to create an ideal mixture of low air and butter fat, which lends to the gelato's smooth, creamy and rich texture while creating under one-tenth of a percent of product waste, and a lower fat, premium product.

These days, eccentric ice cream flavors are as popular as Phish Food, but San Francisco ice creamery Humphry Slocombe was one of the originators. Now you can make their kooky cones yourself–40 types to be exact. The book’s got classics like Tahitian vanilla and malted milk chocolate, but also has recipes for salted licorice and balsamic caramel, most of which, if using an ice cream maker, are easy to whip up (sans-machine instructions are also included). I made strawberry (decent) and Vietnamese coffee (delicious!). Read More

When I think of pin-up drawings, I usually think of women sprawled out in compromising positions. But artist Sashiko Yuen puts a new twist on pin-ups with her beautifully imaginative drawings. Yuen’s characters are tougher than your average calendar girls-- be they snacking on body parts, gazing at the viewer menacingly or sporting loads of tattoos. The artist adds in playful pastel bouffants, vintage silhouettes, and odd dessert-themed adornments (some of these might fit into Katy Perry’s dream wardrobe). I had the pleasure of interviewing the artist about some of her inspirations. Read More
