A Message from Nick

It’s with a heavy spoon and a full bowl that I bid farewell to On Second Scoop. While my role has diminished over the years with other responsibilities, I’ve always been here in the background. Talking with Dubba, giving feedback or just plainly making fun of him.

I’m not leaving for any negative reasons. It’s not you, it’s me. I was offered a position at a major frozen dessert company that I couldn’t turn down. While you won’t be able to read my few and far between reviews anymore, you still can keep tabs on me and what I’m doing on instagram (@nickrovo)

Thank you for all your continued support throughout the past 6 years. And thank you to Dubba for all he has done for me as a mentor, a friend and as a father figure. I wouldn’t have this opportunity if it wasn’t for him putting his faith in me all those years back. I’m not crying, you’re crying. With that, I bid you all farewell.

This isn’t goodbye, this is I’ll see you in the ice cream aisle soon.

-Nick

Blue Bunny Chocolate Brownie Bomb Load'd Sundae

[New for 2018] Will I make it through all 8 load'd sundaes this summer? I would assume so as long as I can actually find them. The good thing about this one and the last one is that I got them from walmart for $2.47 which feels like a better price than $2.99 (price chopper also had them on sale for $2.49 I believe). Anyway, let's dig in to...

Coolhaus Milkshake & Fries Ice Cream

[New for 2017] I don't know about you, but I've had a very hard time finding any of the new coolhaus flavors despite the fact that they were announced well over a year ago. Well it's practically summer 2018 and I finally stumbled upon Milkshake & Fries at Wegmans a few weeks ago (and I want to say they had Best of Both Worlds Vanilla too). I kept looking elsewhere but headed back today to plop down $5.99 for a pint of....

Haagen-Dazs Lemon & Raspberry White Chocolate Trio Crispy Layers Ice Cream

[New for 2018] I've put in some good time on the 2018 product guide but it's not done quite yet (you'd be surprised how long it takes as I'm already a couple hours in to it). I'm going to do two more reviews first and first up is the last of the new Trio flavors. I can't imagine I won't like this. No I don't try a ton of lemon flavors but I know H-D quality should easily carry this flavor. Let's dig in to...
