Blue Bell Cookie Two Step Ice Cream

RECALL ALERT: Certain containers of this flavor were recalled today, thank you for everyone that pointed it out. Specifics can be found here on Blue Bell's site. They are saying an outside firm delivered possibly contaminated cookie dough chunks. Please check your containers.

[New for 2016, by CT of Nerd Lunch] Oh people, how you love your froyo and your over-indulgence of toppings mixed with multiple yogurt flavors. If I love Snickers pieces on ice cream and I love marshmallows on ice cream and I love butterscotch sauce on ice cream, why wouldn't I love all three together? I guess on some level that makes sense. Although that's not how it works for me. I'm a man of simple taste. When I hit the froyo place, I get one base flavor and maybe one complementary flavored topping. It's a different philosophy and neither approach is right or wrong.

Perry's Pumpkin Spice Latte Ice Cream

[New for Fall 2016] You know what I love about Perry's? Their willingness to try something new. They have a range of classic flavors but they get today's media cycle. They realize that you need a mix of beloved regulars and new stuff. Not all of the new flavors will work, but who cares, it's how you learn and grow [don't worry, their excellent pumpkin ice cream is back again as well].

Friendly's Chocolate Cake Krunch Sundae Cup

[New for 2016] If you are like me, it means you are not a morning person. I'm ok with being quiet for the first few hours of the day, and that's just in general, but what happens when you get in to that funk where you can't seem to sleep for more than five or six hours every night? Well, you wake up cranky, and what does cranky call for? Chocolate.
