[New for 2015] Ever since I've seen the Canadianversion of this idea made by Chapman's, I've always wanted to try something similar in the U.S. Years went by and then about a month ago, what do I see, but good ol' Blue Bunny finally cranking out something new for 2015.

2015 Note: Dear reader, I must apologize for the following review which I wrote... in the spring of 2014(?), and it was technically something that had been stewing in my brain even longer than that (you'll see what I mean at the end of the review). I'm only releasing it now because Rice Dreams has recently redone their packaging and I wanted to point it out in case anyone has had trouble finding it (their website hasn't even updated yet). Please note that the allergen warning on the nutrition label has changed (you can find it at the end of this post). Oh, for whatever reason, I stumble upon Almond Dream way more than I do Rice Dream, what's up with that?
[New for 2015] Now there is a certain Haagen-Dazs treat that I've been pining over ever since Junk Food Guy found it all the way back in April! I kept searching and searching but just couldnt find it. Eventually I found it at a remote store and then another that was just a few minutes from work. Well, I'm starved, it's a short week, and for a sale price of $3.99 I just picked up...

Look, I freely admit that I do not understand the world's fascination with salted caramel. Sure, I adore caramel popcorn and buttery caramel sauce and such, but as an ice cream fan, salted caramel is just not something I seek out. Case in point, this free sample of Graeters has been sitting in the chest freezer since... May! Oh geez, we better check out....

(yes, that's actually the name)
