Jeeg has now been to Hy-vee... have you?

Recently our podcasting buddy Jeeg from the Nerd Lunch podcast moved to Minnesota which means he now gets to shop at Hy-vee. Knowing that I'm a grocery geek, he kindly sent over a few shots from the freezer aisle. It can be easy to forget that our local freezer aisle is part of a much larger stage of frozen treats. Let's take a quick look at a few things you might not usually see.

The coolest find has to be Whitey's Sgt. Camo Ice Cream. It's graham cracker and marshmallow ice cream with a ribbon of Whitey's famous fudge. That sounds amazing to a graham fanatic such as myself. In fact, I think I've heard of either Whitey's or this flavor in particular before. If any has tried Whitey's, let us know in the comments. Now, what else do they have?

Friendly's All Natural Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

[New for 2017] Alright, time to push a review to the front of the line because a few of you have been asking me how this new "Naturally" Friendly's line is. Well, it's terrible. I'm not holding back here because there is no reason for it's terrible texture. This will be the only Naturally flavor I review this year. Yes, I really think it's that undeserving of your attention.

Ben & Jerry's Bob Marley's One Love Ice Cream

[New for May 2017] I will admit that I actually saw this pint at another store two days ago but was weary of dumping five bucks on a pint of banana ice cream. Well, I went in to Target this morning and while I didn't find Keep Calm and Caramel On, I did find this on sale for $3.50.
