TMNT Shell Shock Surprise Ice Cream

[New for 2019] I only went in to Walmart for the two new exclusive Ben & Jerry's flavors, but instead my eye was caught by a bright green container of...

Ben & Jerry's Candy Bar Pie Pint Slice

[New for 2019] Do you miss Ben & Jerry's Candy Bar Pie flavor? It was a scoop shop flavor in 2013 and then in limited batch pints in 2014, but then it left us sadly. Well, it's time for a comeback in the form of a pint slice (there is also the new amaze-mint pint slice). I can't imagine it's bad, I really just wonder how good it will be.

Talenti Mint Fudge Cookie Gelato Layers

[New for 2019] Time for layered review #5, woohoo! At this point, it should be pretty obvious that I'm a sucker for this gimmick. Yes, you are going to pay a dollar more than for a regular pint of Talenti, and yes, you don't get as much, but come on, #FunFactor people.

State of the Freezer Address
  Eleven Long Years Edition

Every year I say the same thing, so say it with me now...

"I will not wait until the end of May 8th to write the State of the Freezer address"

Well, as always, life got in the way and it's now 10 pm. 2019 has been crazy and I've only been home for about 20 minutes now (had to eat a quick waffle first). I want you to know that I do appreciate those of you who continue to check out the blog and I thank you for all of your comments. I know I'm not the best writer or the most gracious comment reader, but I am glad that all of you are still out there thinking about ice cream and gelato all the time.

Ok, so what comes to mind when you my downstairs chest freezer? 

1) It needs a cleaning because there are items lingering from a year ago
2) Counting stuff that isn't on the blog yet (the answer is 7, plus I think 2 more upstairs)
3) Dubba still has a thing for breakfast foods
4) How many treats total? (22 you can see, plus at least a half dozen you cant)
5) Can Dubba still count this late at night? (yes but barely)

You get the idea, I still love ice cream, that hasn't change, though the last year has been challenging on what I can and can't eat. I still have varying trouble with chocolate things which is why that Magnum pint hasn't been cracked open yet. I have seven items in the queue (so I'm like a dozen items behind total). This year is kicking my butt but in my defense, I did switch to a new job which is both more challenging and requiring more of my time (which stinks because it is baseball season).

As always, not going anywhere for the foreseeable future. I still dream of running an ice cream company someday but I doubt some random person is going to give me the funds to start one. Oh well. Be well and maybe I'll add a P.S. tomorrow. For now, SLEEP.

Wendy's Frosty Cookie Sundae

[New for Spring 2019] It may not seem like it, but it's been five years since Wendy's has done anything new with their frosty line up. We use to get various experiments here and there but it's been pretty quiet recently. Now they haven't surprised us with something like a strawberry frosty, but if you pull in to drive thru like I did Friday night, you will be greeted by a sign for...
