New Ben & Jerry's....

Before someone goes "have you heard about the new Ben & Jerry's stuff?" in the comments somewhere, yes, I have heard and no, Ben & Jerry's never sends me anything (except once a long time ago) so I have no official pics for you yet. For now, visit (or follow) Junk BanterFun Size Reviews or some other lucky* instagrammers for the pics.

3 Truffles Flavors: Chocolate Shake It, Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake and Chillin' the Roast

3 New Pint Slices: Cherry Garcia, The Tonight Dough, and Coffee, Coffee, BuzzBuzzBuzz

2 New Non-Dairy Flavors: Peanut Butter Half Baked and Cinnamon Buns

*Yes I am bitter that I never get free Ben & Jerry's stuff (though I do appreciate that they've had both Nick and I up to their headquarters). At least I know what to look for now. Happy Hunting!

I forgot to eat ice cream yesterday

Hey everyone! Sorry for no new posts but work has been crazy... like crazy crazy. You know how every profession has it's rough time of the year? Well, I'm wrapping up that time and hopefully today is the last day of a 12 day work streak that has averaged 11 hours a day for the last 7 days (not including commute time). I know this is probably normal for some of you and I don't know how you do it because I'm am so very very very very tired right now. My morning soda is the only thing getting me started right now. I even cheated and had half a Rock Star PUNCHED the other day (something I have vowed not to drink anymore despite it's deliciousness). Hopefully there will be a post tomorrow (if I can ever get myself out of bed). Be well everyone!

Spotted: Spiked Bananas Foster Ice Cream

[Spotted in January 2018] There will always be things that catch my attention without necessarily earning my hard earned dollars. Case in point is the latest limited edition flavor from an Ahold owned grocery store (Giant, Stop&Shop, Hannaford, Food Lion, etc).

Hood Purple Panda Ice Cream

[New for 2018] Hood is pretty good about spitting out a limited edition flavor right at the beginning of the year and 2018 is no exception. Based on the name and general setup, I'd say this is at least a vague shot at Friendly's Purple Potamus ice cream.

Halo Top Pancakes & Waffles Light Ice Cream

[By Nick] Welcome to 2018, everyone! Are you planning on cutting back on your ice cream intake this year? For better or (more than likely) for worse, there’s a scary amount of low calorie options on the market right now. It seems like “good for you” ice creams have become all the rage with Talenti recently jumping on board. It’s been awhile however since we’ve taken a look at the brand that pretty much started this trend.
