They’re not flat out calling them “Ice Cream Nachos”, which is good because they are not that in the least. I’ve seen ice cream nachos, and they are delicious, but constructed in a nacho fashion. For chips you’ve got waffle cone chips, cookies, or sopapillas. For cheese there’s chocolate syrup or a heavy cream. For all the rest of the toppings there is ice cream and all the rest of the ice cream family of toppings. THAT is a delicious order of ice cream nachos.
THIS is a pile of ice cream and some chips on the side. If you order a pile of chips with nacho toppings on the side, that’s not nachos, that’s chips and nacho dip. If their slogan was “Think Chips and Dip - Only ‘Cooler’,” then I’d have no problem, but they’re cashing in on the common misconception that anything involving something that could be described as a chip with something that could go on top of it is nachos. For trickery like that that I say, and I quote, “For shame Baskin-Robbins, for shame.”
for something you’re sure as hell never going to see on a regular
order of nachos, here’s the ingredient list for Waffle Chip Dippers. Chips, cheese, jalapenos, those are all the ingredients you need, not this nonsense:
