Serendipity Cafe Espresso Chip Ice Cream
Serendipity Outrageous Banana Split Ice Cream

Since I got a double order of free Serendipity samples, I brought about half of them to work. Sometimes I would bring just one pint of a certain flavor, but sometimes I would bring both pints. I did it for Humble Pie and then also for....

Serendipity Outrageous Banana Split Ice Cream

Cafe Espresso Chip is coffee ice cream with chocolate chunks and it disappeared quickly... like so quickly that I didn't get to try a scoop of it or grab a photo of it. I don't have an opinion for you, but three of my co-workers took the time to tell me that they really enjoyed it so if this one tempts you, I'm pretty sure that it's safe to purchase.

Outrageous Banana Split did not receive the same kind of love. It was in fact the last pint to leave the freezer (at least I think someone finally finished it). I know a lot of people love a good banana flavor, and after my small sampling I would call this a good banana flavor, but there are a ton of people out there who don't care for banana ice cream. Sorry, it's just reality. It has a nice ripe banana bread flavoring, so if that interests you, I say give it a try.

Verdict?  Coffee won the popularity contest, but Banana was still tasty.

Holiday Stuff from Blue Bunny

Well, I give up... on trying to find new Blue Bunny products. Not literally mind you, just in general. I'll be happy to spot one but deep down I know it's very unlikely.... I guess the question is: does anyone out there miss my blue bunny reviews?


Since I can't find them, I have to resort to borrowing an image from their webpage. I'm sure the chocolate peppermint crunch mini swirls will be excellent, and I'm pretty sure the candy canes n' fudge load'd sundae will be fun, but what is up with the wonky size snickerdoodle sleigh ride container?   (note: SSR is the latest incarnation of Holi-doodle)

Is SSR coming from a different plant, or will we be seeing even smaller containers from Blue Bunny in 2020? Remember when they use to tout how they had 2 extra servings per container? (wow, had to go back to 2012 to find an example here). Sorry, it's just that I really came to respect Blue Bunny and now I can never find anything interesting from them. It's been quite the roller coaster with them over the last decade, that's for sure.

So, what's your current relationship with Blue Bunny? Do you see them? Do you like them? Do you purchase them? If you've had any of their new stuff, please leave a comment below.

Ital Gelato - Pumpkin Pie

It's time to finally get Ital Gelato on the blog. I've seen it at Wegman's for awhile now, and I started thinking I had actually tried it at some point, but I can't find any record of it.
