Chocolate Ice Cream with M&Ms Chocolate Candies
Oh man, I cant wait to open it!
HAHAHAHA! SPRINKLES!!! I think I'm in love.
mmmm, frozen mini M&Ms. ok technically I was hoping for full size M&Ms, but frozen minis are probably better for my teeth.
sprinkles aren't adding anything physically (taste or texture), but they are so much fun to look at. I really dig that the sprinkle colors match the M&M colors.
mmmm, 3 M&Ms in one bite. very solid. definitely like the milk chocolate flavor of the base ice cream.
wish I had a spoon, this plastic fork is making things a bit difficult.
weird, sprinkle explosion --- mmmmm very tasty, adds a awesome base crunch
ice cream texture is a bit weird....ok, here's a description: the chocolate ice cream tastes like the kind you find in an ice cream cake. actually, the whole thing kind of reminds me of an ice cream cake.
hmm, 30% sat fat per serving... must resist urge to eat entire container.
swirl is intermittant, but I seem to hit mini M&Ms on most scoops.
ok, getting full, time to put my new friend back.

Chocolate Ice cream, milk chocolate M&M MINIS,
fudge swirls & candy sprinkles
Hmmmm, now I wonder who makes this ice cream? [Update: Mars is! Using their Dove Pint Prowess] This texture is kinda funny. More than anything, this tastes like some funky fun M&M ice cream cake, but, that throws me off as to who might be making it. There is a label of "plant number 05-50" on the container. Is it possible it's using Walgreens ice cream as a base? I just don't know. Looking at the M&M website, it technically could be Carvel or Breyers (to be honest, I can't remember if I've ever seen the Breyers M&M ice cream).
Parting thoughts: It was just awesome to find M&Ms in a pint size container. It's not perfect, and I've had it local before, but it's cool to know I can put a pint in the freezer. I think it has a decent amount of M&Ms, though I wouldn't argue if they wanted to throw a few more in. Lastly, I know it's silly, but the sprinkles really did put a smile on my face. Life is hard, you really need to let the little things make you happy.
Side Note: To make this story a little sweeter, the other stuff I picked up was buy one get one free for some reason, dont ask me why, and I dont care, I saved a ton of money today. I guess this makes up for the honderous lunchtime snafu yesterday where I tried to help out a situation but made things worse. Hey, I meant well... Karma Rocks!
On Second Scoop: Well, I just decided to have dessert before lunch and while I am satisfied with my treat, I must admit that the fun factor here is definitely stronger than the overall texture. I'm still kind of getting an ice cream cake vibe, though it has subsized a bit. Don't expect super premium style ice cream, but this isnt some cheap air fluffy stuff either. I still say give it a try!
