Homemade Brand Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

So the PR firm for Ohio based Homemade Brand Ice Cream didn't just send over the amazing Santa's Cookie flavor, they also sent over their other festive flavor....

Friendly's Vanilla Caramel Signature Sundae

We haven't seen this product line expand in 2018 and in fact I've seen it disappear from a few stores, so I figured I should finally review the 4th flavor before I lost the chance to.

Homemade Brand Santa's Cookies Ice Cream

Ok, technically Nick has already reviewed this one, but it was five years ago. In fact, he did all of our Homemade Brand (and UDF) reviews back then. Well, Homemade Brand's PR company contacted me and offered to send over some free holiday samples, so now it's finally my turn to say "wow this stuff makes a great first impression".

Coolhaus Best of Both Worlds Vanilla Ice Cream

[New for 2018] So, what do all us old fuddy duddies say? You can tell a lot about a company by how good their plain vanilla ice cream (or gelato) is. I mean, if you can't do vanilla, should I trust you with anything else? It seems like Coolhaus wants to stay true to this question by having two of the top vanilla bean types in their vanilla ice cream. Will I be amazed? And will lots of people chime in like they did on the churro review? (I hope so!)

Coolhaus Street Cart Churro Dough Ice Cream

[New for 2018] Coolhaus is one of those brands that is definitely more prevalent then they once were, but that doesn't mean you can find every flavor everywhere. Sometimes you have to keep searching and eventually you'll find what you have been searching for (usually at $5 a pint).
