PB Graham^2 from Outside the Cone

So I tried the other free sample that Outside the Cone sent over and yeah, it's kind of ridiculous.

Oatmeal Cookie Chunk from Outside the Cone

On September 9th, 2019, Outside the Cone opened it's doors in Wyndhurst, Virginia. On January 19th, 2020, they sent me a direct message on instagram. Kyle asked me if I would be willing to try their version of Oatmeal Cookie Chunk. That's right, it's meant to replicate that badly missed Ben & Jerry's (archived here). Did I say yes? Ofcourse!

Big Gay Ice Cream - Blueberry Gobbler

[New for sometime] Since the Northeast has taken a backseat in terms of getting all that new stuff youy saw in my last post, I need to settle for stuff that I haven't tried. I really wanted something chocolate, but instead I grabbed....

News from the gram

Ok, apparently new ice cream is popping up all over the gram....

Our old bud @junkbanter trying out the new S'mores Bomb Pop Middles. JB also mentions that there is a Chocolate Caramel Sundae version. Update: also chocolate cream and strawberry raspberry  versions.

@tmc_reviews found Twix Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Bar at 7-Eleven.

@snackstalker has already found all the new Blue Bunny Load'd Cones. I'm actually pretty amused by the thought of Blue Bunny cones with 2X the mix-ins. He spied strawberry shortcake, brownie bomb, and bunny tracks.

@snackstalker also found four flavors of new dipped Yasso bars.

Haagen-Dazs Ruby Cacao Crackle Trio spotted by @markie_devo and then later posted by Marvo. I'm happy to see a new Trio flavor, but I'm a little concerned about the appeal of a pistachio flavor.

@andventureisout_there has found the new Mickey Mouse Cookies 'N Cream light ice cream sandwiches. Less cool but probably more tasty than those Star Wars ones I found.

Turkey Hill is one of the first companies to show new 2020 products, and I'm excited because it's a new all natural flavor. That's right, it's chocolate chip cookie dough time. --- they've posted a second pic, this time it's the new mint chocolate cookie swirl flavor.

Technically Graeters announced a new limited edition flavor as well. It's called Boldly Bearcat. It's vanilla ice cream with red velvet sandwich cookies and their signature chocolate chips.

Good Humor announcing new WWE Super Stars cookie sandwiches. People like bringing these up now and then and now they are official back (without the stick anyway).

(I thought this post would take 10-15 minutes.... it's been well over an hour)


Ok, one more for Jan 16! @tamisclock found new Klondike Donuts! That's right, Klondike has punched a whole in their bars and called it a donut. Triple Chocolate, Frosted Strawberry and Boston Cream. (@candyhunting found a promotional pic of the strawberry flavor)

And a few more for Jan 18 : @thecoldhardscoop - King Cake from New Orleans Ice Cream Co. Scoop shot looks great and it's nice to finally see something new from NOICC.

@snackgator - Nestle Drumstick Crushed it! I think it's weird to see a drumstick that's not a drumstick. Seems like a beefier version of something like a strawberry shortcake bar.

@snackstalker back again with the new Nestle Toll House Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches (I wonder if it's the same tech as mad minis?). I don't love their quality but I am curious to see how big they are and how well they work.

Note: I was going to mention the Magnum Double Chocolate Strawberry Tub from @helenjtea but I think she is in the U.K.
