Flavours of WoW

I wrote this post a long time ago but figured that it might be a good shared topic for Blog Azeroth.

It would not be uncommon to hear about the initial release of World of Warcraft as Vanilla or Classic. In terms of ice cream, Vanilla was once considered the most popular flavour of it’s time. So if Vanilla represents Classic WoW, what flavours could represent the following expansions?

The Burning Crusade boxIn Burning Crusade we were introduced to the Blood Elves and the Draenei as the new playable races. Not to mention the addition of Outland. The colour I associate with the first expansion would have to be green – they are the colour of Illidan’s blades, the Dark Portal, Blood Elf eyes and even the colour of the Box set.

Pistachio Gelato ~ one of my favourite flavours

Wrath boxWith Wrath of the Lich King, we worked our way through the icy continent of Northrend; as Arthas Menethil, had emerged from Icecrown Citadel to claim the world as his own. Arthas had set in motion events that would lead to the extinction of all life on Azeroth. As the undead legions of the Scourge threatened to sweep across the land, we struck at the heart of the frozen abyss, ending the Lich King’s reign of terror for all time…

Blueberry Slurpee ~ makes me cold just thinking about it.

Cataclysm boxCataclysm displayed Deathwing’s fiery re-emergence from Deepholm, the elemental plane of earth. As the breaker of worlds, Deathwing burst forth from the heart of the Maelstorm and unleashed his rage upon the land and sea. With Azeroth changed forever, I can’t help thinking of Hazelnut gelato as the flavour of choice.

What can I say, I like the nutty ones :P

Mists boxNow with Mists of Pandaria as the next expansion, with all it’s Asian influences, I’d say Lychee is the flavour of choice since it’s a refreshing fruit – as well as being a fan of Easyway Bubble teas.

Lychee Soy Punch with Pearls? Yes please.

Then again, I also love black sesame like in tang yuan, otherwise known as Black sesame dumplings – the colour of some Pandaren like Chen so I’d be also tempted to suggest Sesame gelato as well.

Hey, it’s my topic so I’m entitled :)

My only question is now – what flavours come to mind for you?

  2. Hmmm.
    Wraith would probably be oreos. I just think black and white.
    Mists is iced chai, refreshing and sweet with just a touch of bite. Iced green tea would also work.
    Cat, I keep thinking donuts, really good for 1 or 2 bites, and then just too sweet. Basically any dessert that is great at first but too rich to have much of.
    BC is mushrooms (I may have spent way too much time in Zangermarsh). Nah, that ice cream with chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla! Something to make everyone happy.

      @Mel – Oh, nice options – although I think you’re right, you’ve been in Zangar way too much :P
