When the internet found out that rapper and actor Ice-T had never tried coffee and bagels, they went wild. And, us? We didn’t know how to feel. At first, we were confused and worried for Ice-T. How could this have happened to any man, especially the star who played our favorite cop on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”?
But soon, our angst turned to inspiration.
We, dating app Coffee Meets Bagel, were going to have Ice-T try coffee and bagels – STAT!
CMB promptly reached out to Ice-T. Soon, we had a date set to film Ice-T trying coffee and bagels inside the rapper’s own home.
But we wouldn’t stop at having Ice-T try just a single type of coffee or bagel. We were going to provide a spread: black coffee, coffee and creamer, iced-coffee, plain bagels with cream cheese, bagels and lox, everything bagels, and more. It was any New Yorker’s dream.
Watching Ice-T try coffee and bagels for the first time was like watching a baby eat their first birthday cake (or, at times, a sour lemon). His reactions, as well as his commentary, touched our hearts.
“That one bite, I feel like I just ate a loaf of bread. People eat this whole thing?”
Take a look at our favorite cuts from our time with Ice-T. Can you guess which varieties of coffee and bagels Ice-T loves, and which varieties he loves to hate? And can you guess what other types of coffee and bagels we had Ice-T try that didn’t make the final cut?
We hope Ice-T’s enthusiasm for trying something new inspires singles to try a new approach to dating. Download Coffee Meets Bagel. Meaningful matches, for meaningful dating.
