McDONALD’S BLUE RASPBERRY SLUSHIE

24 May

UntitledNormally, when you put out something that is almost neon in color….AND that tastes like “blue raspberry” (which I still have yet to find in my own local grocery)…I am usually SOLD!

But this one….kinda meh….and honestly it’s something I could get WAYYYYYY cheaper at a convenient store.   So….  pfft…   not a fan.

7-SELECT BANANA CREAM PIE ICE CREAM

30 Jan

Untitled7-Select GO! Yum has a Banana Cream Pie ice cream that is simply incredible.   I would have never have seen it or heard about it…but a fantastic fan and loyal reader tipped me off to it!

It’s got pie-crust pieces in it and everything.  It’s so creamy and smooth…and banana-yyyyyyyy.

Limited time item?  Who knows…just go get you some!!

BLUE BELL RETURNS

9 Nov

Untitled

Yeah, yeah, yeah.  I am a few days late on this one.  So what.  I can tell you I ain’t all excited to run out and pick up the ol’ blue bell and try it after all the drama.

Not because I think it’s unsafe.  I am sure Blue Bell has spent many many minutes and monies to check and double-check that it’s absolutely safe.

The reality for me is, I have been without it for months and I survived.  I discovered there are plenty of other ice creams out there that are just as good.

What about you? did you survive?  Did you run out and stock up on your freezer with Blue Bell?

STAR WARS – LIGHTSABER ICE POPS

5 Nov

UntitledWho on Earth doesn’t like Star Wars?  I mean COME ON, people!!!   The adventure, the space ships, the aliens, the cool buddy-cop-friendship between Kirk and Spock?

Huh?  Oh yeah…..Star Wars, I mean.

Anyways these lightsaber pops are sure to please any kid or anyone with flavors like “Imperial Punch”?   Hell yeah I want one!!

CARL’S JR – DING DONG ICE CREAM SANDWICH

17 Sep

Untitled

//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.jsTHIS. IS. REAL.  No camera tricks involved or photoshop.

A recent trip to Carl’s Jr. (why aren’t there more of them around here?  They have some killer menu items and the guts to try something like this) and I was at a loss for words (not an easy thing to accomplish) when I saw this poster.

Of course I would like to add one to my order, missy!

It’s exactly what you think.  It’s so damn simple I can’t believe nobody ever thought of it before.

It’s messy to eat but every bite was worth it.

GIRL SCOUT THIN MINT ICE CREAM TREATS

22 Jun

UntitledThe Good Humor gang knows you love Girl Scout cookies.  Many, if not most, love Thin Mints.  So creating some Thin Mint ice cream themed items was pretty slick.

These are more like a Klondike, ice cream covered in chocolate, but this has cookie bits in it so that should be more than enough to satisfy all those sweet-tooth-cravings you could have.

BEN AND JERRY’S PEANUT BUTTER HALF BAKED

23 Apr

UntitledGreat Googly Moogly this is so close….that I just wanna lay down and cry.

Once upon a time – B&J made the most incredible ice cream ….in the history of ever.   It was Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cookie dough in it.   Read about my love affair with it here.  …and of course it was discontinued.

Seeing this freaks me out because it is SO close to that original ice cream.  This is also promising because it tells me they still have the ingredients to make the one I want brought back…should they ever grant my wishes and do so.

That being said — this Peanut Butter Half Baked is an absolute dream if you love chocolate and peanut butter.   The ice creams are rich and the textures from the cookie dough and the brownie bring some serious chew and additional joy to this absolute assault on your taste buds.    And of course it…like the original flavor I loved…is limited.  So you have just enough time to get seriously addicted to it before they drop it off the Earth.
