Why did Dunkin change my beloved Coolatta?

Look, I've been drinking Coolattas since they first came out. I don't remember exactly when I feel in love with the Strawberry one, but I remember them setting up on a Boston street and handing out free samples of the "new" coolatta in the 90s. I think my wife and I tried the vanilla bean one at the time, but I'm not positive. My point is it has been forever, and now, in 2018, they've finally gone and ruined the Coolatta. Why I ask, WHY?

No, it's not totally dead to me, I will still get them on occasion, but the switch to a much finer ice particle has taken away the magic that was the strawberry coolatta. I can't tell you how many times that I would grab an icy cold strawberry coolatta to help with one of my headaches. Or how about those fun days where I would take a long walk to get one with one of their discontinued lunchtime sandwiches. Man Dunkin, you sure have wormed your way out of my heart.

I now open the floor to anyone else who would like to vent about Dunkin, whether it's their coolattas or lackluster donuts or something missing on their menu.

Ben & Jerry's New Moo-phoria Flavors

[New for October 2018] So I mentioned that there are 4 new Moo-phoria flavors but wouldn't it be nice if I actually showed them to you right? I mean, I'm not personally excited because I think this line up is just money-grubbing trash, but don't let my opinion sway you away from these. (why yes, I do feel like being harsh right now. Blame the pain I've had in my neck all week).

Archer Farms Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert

[New for 2018] Oh geez, more new stuff? I went to go check out Minter Wonderland but instead I plowed in to a new Archer Farms product line. At first I thought it might be a second shelf of their new sugar replacement lineup, but I looked closer and definitely noticed new flavors... and they say Non-dairy! I count seven flavors in all. When I went to double check that number on the internet, I discovered that these are being touted as an option for vegans.

Humboldt Cookies & Cream Ice Cream
Humboldt Mint Chip Ice Cream

I've been meaning to get the Humboldt pints on the blog for awhile now. You might remember the short lived 2016 40oz containers that could be found at Walmart and Trader Joe's (see my chocolate and mint chip reviews). I wasn't terribly impressed back then but maybe I'll have a bit more luck with their pint form factor. There are seven flavors in all, including...

Culture Republick Light Ice Cream

Alright Unilever, what are you up to? Are you trying to get a gigantic leap on 2019 or are you just trying to hit us with some options for everyone stuck inside? Wait, should I stop asking questions and recap first? (see how that was a question to end the questions? ha, it won't stop!). So first Unilever hit us with 3 new Magnum tubs, then dished out four more Moo-phoria flavors from Ben & Jerry's, and now we've got probiotic filled....
