High Road Chocolate Chip Cookies with Malt Ice Cream Sandwiches

I mentioned how I hit a High Road Sale in my last post, well, time for the other ice cream sandwiches I bought.

DQ Heath Caramel Brownie Blizzard

[New for early Fall 2019] I wasn't really interested in my frozen meal at lunchtime today, and it's definitely feeling like summer out there, so I headed to DQ for....

Gifford's Peanut Butter Pie Ice Cream

I can't tell you how long I've waited to try this ice cream. It's been literal years. It popped up on the scene forever ago but it was never anywhere practical. I would only see it at Wegman's and I wasn't about to bring home a big quart of peanut butter ice cream. So, I waited. And waited. And waited. And then, the Stop & Shop by work decided to start carrying Gifford's. It's only one shelf and there's only like four options, but one of those four is a fresh delivery of....

Five Guys Oreo Cookie Pieces Shake

Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend. I just wanted to say that I finally tried a shake from Five Guys and it was good. They put it on the menu as a vanilla shake and then you pick what you want in it. You can get Bacon, Bananas, Cherries, Chocolate, Coffee, Malted Milk, Oreo Cookie Pieces, Peanut butter, Salted Caramel, and Strawberries. If you want to pick more than one, that's cool with them too. I decided to start with my favorite shake.

Simply put, it was good and I will get it again. I know there is the crowd that prefers a thinner shake with their fast food (say from McDonald's) but I prefer a thicker shake. It's not scoop shop thick, but it's got heft to it. They also did a good job blending it, I got plenty of Oreo wafer flavor with just a sprinkling of larger bits coming up the straw now and then.

I will definitely get shakes from them again and the urge to mix and match mix-ins will definitely be in play next time. Hey, let's do something different, what's the craziest but still tasting sounding combo you can think of? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Verdict?  good
Buy Again?  yup!

Dairy Queen Harvest Berry Pie Blizzard

[New for 2019] While Pumpkin Pie is the official blizzard of September 2019 (and probably October 2019 and November 2019), a new friend snuck on to the blizzard board as well. Sure, it feels like it should have been the July or August blizzard, and at first it feels like a riff on the now departed summer berry cake cupfection, but I love me a new blizzard so...
