Friendly's Cherry Chocolate Chunk Sundae Cup

[New for 2016] I know I said I wouldn't be reviewing any more Friendly's for awhile, but I'm going to revise /clarify my statement and say I meant big containers of Friendly's. I think their sundae cups and treats should still be fair game, especially since all of their sundae cups are rocking new packaging this year. In total, they've added six full time cups and one limited edition cup to the lineup, making 16 varieties in all now. Since distribution is still a bit sketchy (aka it's hard to know which store gets what yet), we're going to kick off the new cup reviews by looking at....

Edy's Mint Crunch Ice Cream

[New for 2016] Alright, time for our fourth Edy's candy-inspired flavor. 100 Grand was surprisingly good, but there is a certain something here that has me worried.

DQ Royal Rocky Road Brownie Blizzard Review

[New for 2016] I just got back from DQ and am I full of rocky road goodness. After a messy run-in with the Royal Oreo Blizzard, I had decided to hold off judgement on the royal line up until I tried...

Mochidoki "Heart to Heart" Mochi Ice Cream Collection

Hard to believe it, but Mother's Day 2016 is a mere two weeks away. Every brunch place from here to Orange County is already filling up with reservations, so what's a foodie to do? Well, I got an email from mochidoki out of NYC and they've sent over free samples of something different that they have planned for the big day.

Edy's 100 Grand Ice Cream

[New for 2016] So I have a suspicion about these new candy bar inspired Edy's / Dreyer's flavors that are hitting store shelves. While technically there are "different" varieties, both Buncha Crunch and Mint Crunch seem to be using the similar chocolate covered crispies which would be fine until you check out the description on this next flavor.
