Three Twins Mint Confetti Ice Cream

I was serious when I said I was trying to fill in my three twins knowledge. There are currently 23 flavors and I've only had... six of them? Wow, that's just sad, I didn't realize I was that far behind! I need to get caught up post haste!

Choco Chip Oreos and The Nosh Show Episode 82

Hello Nosh Show listeners! Sorry for the late post as the day was a bit more hectic than I expected (plus I cheated and didnt post a review yesterday). The good news is that episode 82 is now available. Now I wish I could talk about those new Reese's stuffed with Pieces that Junk Food Guy covered today, but instead we're going to talk about something that hopefully you've seen although I haven't seen a ton of stores carry them yet. I am talking about Choco Chip Oreos.

So of all the Nosh Show hosts, I wind up being the biggest fan of these new Oreos. No they don't taste exactly like a chocolate chip cookie, but these aren't just any cookie, they are still Oreos, so they still need to taste like Oreos too right? I guess I am in the minority on these. A lot of people seem to put these down while touting the awesomeness of the fruity crisp Oreos, but I never even finished the package of those, they were just way too sweet for me.

Before we go, I must admit that I was tempted to lead this show's announcement with this nonsense. It's a Hostess coffee cake shoved inside two choco chip Oreos. Why? Iunno, why not? It actually worked surprisingly well because although we've got lot of sweetness from the Oreos, it pairs well with the cinnamon as well as the general cake flavor. I didn't have a second, but I enjoyed the first.... and my daughter just walked by and went "What?"

I think it's safe to end on that note. Have a great week everyone. Try not to melt.

Three Twins Bittersweet Chocolate Ice Cream

Alrightly, this is going to be a quick review because unfortunately I seem to have picked up a freezer burned pint. Yes, I'm sure it's freezer burn. No, I am not amused. To compensate, I left my bowl of ice cream melt for a good bit tonight and I'll finish off the pint over the weekend as a milkshake. That said, I'm still confident in recommending...

Edy's Peanut Butter Butterfinger Cups Ice Cream

[New for 2016] We are about half way through summer now right? Between official seasons and school years and however crazy hot it is, I have no idea if that's a safe thing to say, but I'm going with it. At this point, I am basically just meandering around the freezer aisle waiting for something to go on sale and catch my eye. This was only a little on sale at Target ($4.09), but it'll do since their stock of Drumsticks was wiped out. I've tried most of the Edy's candy flavors now so how will this one compare?

Choctal Vanilla Ice Cream

Hello! I'm back! Yesterday I dug in to my chocolate samples and today we're going to dig in to their single origin vanilla line up. I mentioned yesterday that Choctal is a young company that was nice enough to send over some free samples, but I didn't mention that you can buy their products online as well certain freezer aisles (at a minimum, I know they are in California Targets). All of their flavors are available in pint size or these convenient half cup single serve packages.
