Following in Michele Bachmann‘s footsteps, Herman Cain appeared on the “Tonight Show” on Friday for a chat. Host Jay Leno asked Cain to respond to Sarah Palin calling him the “flavor of the week” last week on Fox News.

“That might be true with some people,” Cain said, “but I happen to believe that there’s ice milk and there’s Haagen-Dazs Black Walnut. Substance, that’s the difference.”

Watch Cain’s full appearance on the Tonight Show below.

**Scarry‘s note: Ice milk (chocolate-vanilla swirl) made up half my diet in college. Tread lightly, Cain.
