Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Twirl

[New for 2018] Can I be a bit cynical for a minute? (and let's be honest, when aren't I?). It feels like Nestle has a done a decent job of gaining some social media traction by hiding their branding. As a literal person, this bugs me a little. I see people excited for Hostess flavors or candy bar flavors or super hero flavors and I think "yeah, that's just regular gummy Edy's/Dreyer's, it's nothing new!". It's good if it makes people happy I guess, but I feels a little dishonest to me. Sorry, I know I am overthinking it. Let's proceed with...

Crescent Ridge vs Trombetta's Farm

When you have the same flavor from two different local places, you can't help but compare the two right? Case in point is Crescent Ridge Dairy Bar vs Trombetta's Farm. You can drive to both places for a cup or cone of ice cream, but you can also take a freshly scooped quart home from Trombetta's and I can sometimes find Crescent Ridge in my local freezer aisle.

Museum Of Ice Cream Vanillionaire Ice Cream

[New for Summer 2018] Have you ever heard of the Museum of Ice Cream? Maybe not, but you have probably seen a picture on social media of someone "swimming" around their giant pool of ice cream sprinkles. Well, for some reason they have gotten in to the ice cream game.... I should probably look for a press release. found it. Apparently the seven pint flavors will be exclusive to Target (and any Museum of Ice Cream location).

ProYo becomes swell

For a moment today, I thought I found a new product line. I've seen high protein low fat ice cream ProYo pints before on occasion, but today the spot was taken by new light turqoise containers. They almost look delicate. Ok, maybe I'm forcing that word in there. See, ProYo has ditched their "manly" protein supplement looking pints and gone with a new name and new packaging to be more attractive and less confusing. If you think I'm being harsh, I'm actually just paraphrasing their press release. The pints do stand out on the shelf, but it's also kind of boring. What do you think?

Chilly Cow Light Ice Cream

At this point, it feels like just about every wants in on the ultra light / sugar replacement trend right? Maybe in today's world it's just easier to jump on a bandwagon than it was in the past? My point is, have you noticed that Blue Bunny didn't jump on it? Oh wait.... they did! Chilly Cow is made by Wells Enterprises, the folks behind Blue Bunny Ice Cream. I first spied it way back at the beginning of March. It was $5.49 for a two pack (equivalent of a pint) at Price Chopper.
