Sorry if this has been covered but, if I decide to make one, it would save me some embarrassment if I could skillfully eat one. Thanks.

There are two schools of thought: Neat and Adventurous.

Neat.

The ice planet was indeed problematic to eat on the stick. It was much easier to cut it in half and use a spoon. Once cut in half it was nice to see the different layers.

Adventurous.

Not only do you get to see first hand what River was referring to when she called eating it “problematic” but you get to have a lot of fun in the process. You may think this dessert would be a drippy nightmare but it’s not. Jim and I made and ate 2 and we had only one lonely drip. Because the ice cream is not touching any surface, you get very little heat conduction. The Ice-Planet is only warmed by your face and mouth, not by a bowl, cone, or even spoon. Also, as the planet is eaten (slowly) because of the internal structure, it doesn’t fall apart. The re-freezing binds the melty seam together with a strong unbreakable bond. This is helpful when you are swinging the plant all over the place figuring out how to eat it.

What’s so great about this dessert, is that is it super fun to eat. There are several methods to consumption. You can try to bite the planet from the side (never getting much); lick the planet (which yields little, but is less messy); or attack from the southern pole (which is most effective because the gravity of Earth-that-is is helping the process). Here Jim shows us these 3 methods.

Before Firefly, I'd never even heard of an 'ice planet'. I simply assumed it was some gag idea thought up by the writers , or someone , for the show. What it was and how one was suppose to eat it didn't really register all that much. I mean, sure it seemed likely to be some frozen treat ( thus the name ) but it could very well be like a rice krispy treat,or some such, which just LOOKED like a snow ball / ice planet.

As for eating, it, why not just spin the stick and wind the string up , so it sits more like a Popsicle ? Sure, it kinda defeats the purpose, but if ya wanna eat the thing, that's the point, ain't it ?
