Default Gendered ice-cream outrage!

A gelateria (read: ice cream store) in my city with a bit of a cult following created two new flavors of ice-cream... One for men, and another for women...

The men's flavor is salted caramel with milk chocolate and malt crumb. The women's flavor is strawberry rose with white choc and raspberry dust.

It's created outrage!

Why can't women eat the more "rugged" salted caramel one? Why don't men get the more "dainty" strawberry rose?

The store has since apologized profusely for the "offence"...

But, you know what? I bet sales went up as a result of the controversy!

What do you think? Is this truly outrageous? Or is it political correctness gone mad?
