  1. I know it wouldn’t have as much visual contrast and everything has to have chocolate (e.g. B&J’s Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Core having chocolate ice cream when Cookies and Cream generally has a vanilla ice cream) but come on. It’s the standard “vanilla ice cream”, not “vanilla frosting ice cream”, and that shot makes it look like almost half chocolate.

    If it’s “Vanilla Chocolate Cupcake”, no complaints. Yes, vanilla cupcakes can have chocolate frosting, but look at the Google Images for Vanilla Cupcake: how far do you have to go before finding one with a dark/chocolate frosting as opposed to a light/vanilla one? My search display suggests additional items, like Sprinkles or Chocolate Frosting, but that is an ADDITIONAL search term: “vanilla cupcake chocolate frosting”, meaning you’d have to specify chocolate frosting because the default assumption from our Master Google is that vanilla cupcake means a light colored cake and light colored frosting, not freaking chocolate. Gah.

    This is much like the aforementioned B&J having chocolate ice cream when Google Images for cookies and cream shows a light/vanilla base for the top hits. I guess I just need to assume that every ice cream has to have chocolate, regardless of the name.

    1. If its anything like the Strawberry/Chocolate Easter one, the swirl is mainly on the outer edges, which is why you see so much of it.
