Hostess Ding Dong Frozen Sandwiches

[New for 2017] I realized that I forgot to actually try any of the treat versions of the new Hostess ice creams this year... ofcourse, the ice creams say "Limited Edition" but the treats do not.

Revelé Whipped Gelato

About two months ago, I came across a fascinating product. Fascinating because it was a new low calorie frozen treat that wasn't relying on Erythritol or any other sugar replacement. Instead, it was whipping in more air to reach that magical double digit calorie mark. I thought "great! I need to try this stuff" before quickly realizing that they are based in Orange County, CA. As luck would have it, they contacted me through instagram and offered to send free samples. How could I say no?

Blue Bunny Peanut Butter Party Ice Cream

It's now the end of 2017 and I've still seen very few new containers from Blue Bunny, so let's pick up something from 2016. At one point, someone left a comment that this one is a failed imitation of Blue Bunny's earlier "Peanut Butter Panic" which had the same basic components.

Price Chopper Double Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream

Time for a super quick review of something that's been hanging out in the freezer for the last couple of weeks. I tend to buy the same things when my daughter asks for something fruity or chocolatey but on occasion I will make a random purchase like the one below. "Central Market Classics" is no longer the name of the inhouse brand for Price Chopper. A lot of the current stuff is frozen dairy dessert, but there are some actual ice creams mixed in like...

High Road Caramel Pecan Ice Cream

[Reader Note: High Road has checked in with us and has offered to send a fresh pint to Nick so that he can verify if he got an off pint or not.]

[By Nick] Has it already been 6 months since my last review? Time really does fly. Between my son and the doughnut shop, time to formally write a review seems to slip away. That and I’m honestly pretty lazy. But hey, I’m here now and ready to try a brand that’s new to the site but not new to us. High Road has been on our radars for years. They’re a brand that touts themselves as a culinary inclined business as you can probably tell by their “made by chefs” tagline. Not to rain on anyone’s parades but most ice cream companies do rely on chefs to help curate their flavors. We haven’t been able to find them in our stores up North. Well up until recently when I stumbled upon a few of their flavors at my local Shop Rite.
