Lake Charles Ice Cream Shop Breaks Facebook With This Topping
There is nothing I love more than those weird photos you have to sit and look at for some time to actually make sense of it. This photo from Boombox Frozen Pops and Ice Cream is almost the prime definition of that feeling. The Lake Charles-born ice cream shop has been around for quite a few years featuring amazing gourmet ice cream and popsicles with an 80's theme for all of their names and throughout the entire store. The brand gained popularity when it was in its infant stage located in downtown Lake Charles. After a few years downtown, it expanded east into Baton Rouge and then moved its Lake Charles location to south Lake Charles near Nelson Road.
When scrolling through Facebook last night, I ran across this picture. At first glance, I just assumed it was a random meme about weed on ice cream. I noticed the iconic cassette tape backdrop that I KNOW is at Boombox and scrolled back up. Before you jump to conclusions as I did, this is a new concoction they have come up with that is chocolate peanut butter ice cream. They have it topped with peanut butter cups. I have stared at this picture on and off for almost 24 hours and I cannot for the life of me see that topping as a peanut butter cup. It literally looks like peanut butter sprinkled on entire buds of weed. After looking at the comments, I am not the only one that thought the same!

The dude who sold them to us at the Civic Center said they were peanut butter cups - Boombox Frozen Pops
The comments go on and on and on! Now, to be totally clear, Boombox did make a comment saying that of course, it's not what we think. It indeed is peanut butter cups on top and the lighting was totally off. They were going to remove the picture so as to not offend anyone but opted to leave it up since everyone was having so much fun with the picture. Personally, I think it is hilarious and just as good as that stupid dress we could never figure out the color of 15 years ago!
Go see for yourself and order one here in Lake Charles at their store, 2825 Country Club Road, Suite B, or in Baton Rouge at 4410 Highland Road, Suite A1. They're open 7 days a week til 9:00 pm.
