In a freezer aisle far, far away.....

Sorry for minimal posts recently. Things are busy are work but boring in the freezer aisle, so it's pretty much just me mixing in reviews of free Serendipity samples with other misc things that I pick up at the store. Other than looking for the new King Leo Peppermint flavor from Dolcezza, there's not a whole lot going on right now. Wait, that's not true, I did stumble on one new thing!

Star Wars Millennium Falcon Ice Cream Sandwiches

I was thinking these looked familiar and then someone on instagram chimed in that they remind them of the old WWF pops (I have an image here). Will I buy these 6 vanilla sandwiches at a cost of $5.00 a box? I say probably not because this is yet another unbranded Nestle Dreyers (Edys) treat made with their signature cheap light ice cream....

Ahhhh, ok, I'll probably give in at some point so that I can save the box.

Tillamook Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

I've decided to give Tillamook another chance. I got several suggestions on instagram about what I should try next, but since I don't have access to any of those flavors, let's go with something simple that shouldn't be hard too mess up.

Serendipity Strawberry Fields Sundae Ice Cream

[New for early 2019] When I was talking to Seredipity's PR firm amount sampling the three new flavors that popped out for the fall, I couldn't help but mention the tough luck I've had finding the original flavors. Granted I'm not hunting this year like I have in years past, but I still should have come across something by now.

I decided to try Strawberry first because... well, I don't know why. I guess I didn't want a saltier flavor after my salty lunch, so in we go. (note: this was my first review but I didn't post it first)

Beckon Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I like to set up my reviews of something new with a bit of background info, but I want to just jump ahead and say I don't like this ice cream. When you only have a few pints in your line up, why risk making one of them too salty? Ok, I'm really just mad at myself for not noticing the "sea salt" in the flavor name. Keep in mind that, in general, salty things tend to taste extra salty to me.
