Chipwich Birthday Cake Ice Cream Sandwich

[New for 2020] After a failed run to Roche Bros in the morning (aka no new products), I ran out to Stop & Shop and lunch to grab something new for my belly. I only saw my first picture of this product yesterday, so I was stoked to find...

Twix Chocolate Lowfat Milk

I was grabbing a few random snacks to call my lunch when I spied...

Twix Chocolate Lowfat Milk

I thought "hey, why not? I like TWIX and I like chocolate milk, what could go wrong?" Ok, that last part is a lie. I knew exactly what could go wrong and it did.

It's not that it tastes super terrible, it's the fact that not only does it not taste like TWIX really, but it tastes like some kind of coffee - caramel hybrid and you all know I don't like coffee. I could drink it for the sake of not wasting it, but I'm not enjoying it at all.

I wound up drinking less than half of the milk at lunch with the thought that I could sneak it in to the back of closest fridge and then finish the rest on the way home. Yeah, I left it in that fridge and I don't know the next time I will be back to it. What a shame. So sad. Real broken up about it. Gonna need a minute to gather myself....

Verdict?  why?
Buy Again?  nope

Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Chunks

[New for 2020] Since the grocery stores closest to me are still fairly limited with what they have, I decided that I was going to treat myself to that bag of half baked dough I saw last week at the far away store. Well, it was gone, but what I did find was this for half off....

Haagen-Dazs Soft Dipped Vanilla Ice Cream Bars

[New for early 2020] Wow, did I just write 2020? It's kind of weird, no, very weird. It just kind of hit me as I started my first review for the 2020 season (my 13th season of reviewing ice cream). Anyway, new stuff is starting to hit my local Stop & Shop which means lunchtime is review time.

Finally found new stuff!

Yay me! I finally found new 2020 stuff! Unfortunately I was no where near my regular freezers so I had to settle for just pictures... but just for now. This was at a far away Shaw's but if there is time tomorrow, I'll hit the one that's closer to home after my day is done. (update: nothing local!)

Magnum Double Pistachio Honey Ice Cream Tub

This was the most surprising find as I haven't seen it on social media anywhere yet. I can't believe we have two new Pistachio flavors hitting us this year. (remember that there is a new pistachio Trio flavor from Haagen-Dazs - see my News from the gram post)

Good Humor Dale Jr Cookie Sandwiches

Technically I haven't see these either, but it makes sense to have a chocolate counterpart to the new vanilla WWE bars. Plus, who doesn't love this guy? (though how funny would it be to have a competing Kyle Busch flavor that had M&M's in it?)

Kit Kat minis (next to the Toll House Minis)

I almost gave in and bought these as my lunch today. Don't worry, I bought the tasty looking $5 hot chicken pot pie as my lunch, but I almost wavered and got these instead.

Good Humor Pop-tarts brown sugar cinnamon dessert bar

I feel like everyone wants to get in on the cross-branding game....

Friendly's Nutty Buddy SuperScoops

To be honest, I think this might just be a re-branding of their current cone line up (other than looking like they have extra peanuts on top). They are literally the same 4.6 fl oz size as their regular cones. The nut covered flavors come in vanilla, chocolate peanut butter, and vanilla caramel while the mint fudge and chocolate overload flavors have chocolate crunchies instead.

Here's another one that was really hard to pass up, but I knew I would regret eating the entire bag in one sitting. Can't wait to find these again.

Breyers Layered (Frozen Dairy) Desserts

Hey Breyer's, any chance this is your version of  Turkey Hill's Trio'politan? In the example above (S'mores and Brownie Cheesecake), the ice creams on the outside match, only the middle is different. Technically the Cinnabon flavor is a bit tempting but real cinnamon ice cream is just so good compared to this stuff.

Ok, I need to sleep but I'll add the rest of my finds here tomorrow!
