An Odd Flavor of Korean Ice Cream

I found this at a regular corner store where I was living in a suburb in the Seoul area in 2009. It actually didn’t taste that cheesy which is just as well since Asians typically aren’t fans of that kind of flavor. Which begs the question: why in Asia were they marketing a product as being cheese flavored?
Cheese can be seen as classy, chic, and Western .(I once saw $6 dollar small boxes of imported Kraft singles strategically located in the wine department in an E-mart).
But it is still very much in the process of gaining popular acceptance.

As for the slogan, it’s nonsense, but Northeast Asians like the look and sound of certain English words. “Story” seems to be one that’s caught on.

In 1547 I was burnt at the stake in Rome for my pernicious pamphlet proclaiming that the heavens were not filled with a profusion of aether, but rather an extensive vacuum.
Now, the phlogiston that composed my being has re-manifested centuries in the future so that I may continue the task that was inconveniently disrupted so long ago.
Now, I live in Rome on the very street where I (and others) were publicly burnt. To this day, the street is known as what I would translate as 'Heretic's Way'. My charming residence is number 6 on this old road. Please, do come inside and pay me a visit; I should be delighted to spew out endless pedagoguery to one and all...
