Coolhaus Take the Cannoli Ice Cream

[New for 2019] I'm still hitting the grocery store just once a week, but I'm trying to switch things up by not hitting the same grocery store every time. I'm not finding a ton of new stuff, but I was able to pick up one of the newer coolhaus flavors.

Friendly's S'mores Big Chipper

[New for 2020] Oh Deans, I know what you are up to. Giving us a national snack in regional packaging. Very sneaky, but I get that's how things work. So, whether you see these as Mayfield, Dean's, or Friendly's, if you are like me, you won't be able to walk past....

Great Value Circus Cookie Ice Cream

Testing, testing... Is this thing on?!

Nick here and I’m not 100% sure why. The coronavirus has made everything crazy to say the least. Now it seems to be that today's date means something to someone. Hmm, what could it be? Ahhh yes, it’s my 8 year anniversary of my first ever review.

Now don’t call this a comeback, this is and will always be the Dubba show. I just have a lot of free time on my hands these day. Why not fill it with some ice cream reviews?

Honestly, this year's releases have been a bit lackluster for my likes. Nothing too crazy has been released. If there’s a trend to be seen, animal crackers are hot this year. Can’t blame them, they’re adorable animal shaped cookies, what’s there not to like? Target even covers those babies in white chocolate. Oh yeah, because the cookies themselves need that to taste good.

I’m getting side tracked and talking about competitors, some things never change. That said, let’s get into today’s special review.

Ben & Jerry's Chip Happens Ice Cream

[New for 2020] Good morning ice cream fans! You know what today is? It's the 12th anniversary of the launch of On Second Scoop. 12 Years! I can't believe I'm still here.... I can't believe you are still here! You know I appreciate all of you (especially the ones that comment), so to celebrate, let's dig in to something that is hopefully delicious!

Coolhaus Bananas Foster Ice Cream
aka do you ever forget about your ice cream?

Hey everyone, still here. Got a few reviews in the queue that I just can't seem to finish. A side effect of spending all day in the home office is that I have no urge to blog when the work day is done. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that way, but I apologize anyway.

To buy me another day or two to finish up what's in the queue, may I present this flavor... that was part of a free shipment back in 2017....  It's funny because I had finally found Coolhaus' plastic pints at Shaw's, and then they offered up a free selection of their new paper pints.
