Ok, time for a quick review of something from Market Basket. It's been lingering in the freezer for awhile as it was part of my plan to fill in during this lackluster summer we are having. I don't think I've ever officially covered anything from MB before, but I wanted to try something a bit different from them, plus I had a positive experience with Turkey Hill Butter Brickle ice cream.

It has been a year since we mentioned JC's Pie Pops and a saddening three years since I first sampled their four original flavors. I was so very impressed by those pops when I had them and unfortunately I had to deal with the fact that it wasn't something I could easily pick up at the grocery store. Well a lot has changed over the years. Pie Pops are more readily available, there are more flavors, there is the variety without crumbs, and there is even the truffle version you can find in your grocer's candy section.

This is going to be quick because in real time it's August but the flavor in this hand packed pint is the Graeter's seasonal flavor for February and March. That's right, I got this free pint along with my cheese crown samples and I was saving it for a special occasion and then forgot I had it. Yeah, I'm awesome at remembering stuff!
[New for 2016] Hello Nosh Show listeners! Episode 84 is alive and well and patiently waiting to start your week off right. I do love having something fun and frozen from our Nosh or Not list to show you and I think this fits the bill. Now I was tempted to blow ten bucks to get these and the original golden flavor, but I've been blogging on a budget and I'm sticking to it. That means picking the flavor that I was more excited about.
[New for 2016] Sometimes you have long days, and then sometimes you have long weeks. At these moments, you often promise yourself something cold and chocolatey. I was having one of these moments when I decided to try this flavor. Everyone seemed to dig the breakfast in bed review so let's try something else from Vice Cream.
