Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches

[By Nick, New for 2014] Last year, Blue Bunny sent me a couple packages of their reformulated ice cream sandwiches, one of which was their Simply Vanilla variety. Well this year they’ve received a no sugar added sibling in the form of their Sweet Freedom Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches.

Magnum Infinity Chocolate & Raspberry Ice Cream Bar

[New for 2014] Of all the Magnum flavors floating around the planet (and there are quite a few of them), the U.S. got three new Infinity bars. The dry Chocolate bar, the target exclusive Chocolate & Caramel bar, and this guy I picked up from Walmart.

Blue Bunny Caramello Ice Cream Candy Bar

["official" for 2014] Now technically Nick found this product last May, but it wasn't on the 2013 press release and I didn't see it until early 2014. Well, it's on the new products press release for 2014 and Wells was nice enough to send over a free package for testing.

Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Bars

[By Nick, New for 2014] With brands like TCBY invading the freezer aisle, it was only a matter of time before others such as Baskin-Robbins followed suit. “But wait Nick, you could already buy pre-packaged Baskin-Robbins products.” Why yes, you’re correct. You can buy their products from one of their stores but what if you’re someone like me who doesn’t have a Baskin-Robbins within a 50 mile radius? (That’s the furthest their website would let me search. I’m pretty sure I don’t have one within 100 miles of me.) Well thanks to the folks at Boardwalk Frozen Treats, you can now purchase Baskin-Robbins bars and faux-pints from your local grocery store! While not in stores around me just yet, they were kind enough to send me a sample pack of both lines. Since I got the complete catalog of bars, let’s take a look at those first!

There are three bars in total: Jamoca, Mint and World Class Chocolate. While the base flavors are obviously different, the first two use a dark chocolate flavored shell while the world class chocolate uses a milk chocolate shell. Let's start this review with the dark ones.
