With the kids sick, I had to make the solo run to Whole Foods. While most of my time was spent in other aisles, I did take a quick break and spend a few minutes in the freezer section. Now usually I just kind of randomly grab what's good and bring it home, but since I'm so far from home, and since it is so hot out, I decided to make a list of what I saw and see if anyone has any recommendations.
Oh, before I forget, I saw this pint container. It's intended for homemade ice cream but it kind of looks like its big enough to hold a pint as well --- hmmm, lots of people complaining it's hard to open.
Ok, on to the all natural list of frozen treats, feel free to make suggestions in the comments (or in the new suggestion box in the right hand column of the page)
Alden's Organic All Natural ice cream looks good, and I can pick it up at Shaws too (which I will do one of these days).
Vanilla Bean, Blackberry, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Mint Chip, Strawberry, Butter Brittle, Peanut Butter & Chip, Cookies & Cream
Sweet Scoops frozen yogurt was started out by none other than Bob Colombosian, you know, Colombo yogurt! He sold the scoop shop long ago and the company now sells throughout New England.
Flavors: Black Raspberry, Coffee Cookies & Cream, Dutch Chocolate Chip, Madagascar Vanilla, Ginger, Mint Chip, Mudslide with Chocolate Chunks, Wild Maine Blueberry (seasonal), and Pumpkin (seasonal)
Oh boy, the "handmade artisan gelato and sorbet" of Cold Fusion Gelato. Gelato is slowly winning me over, especially with flavors like "Dark Chocolate Brownie".
(Too many flavors to list)
Sorbet tends not to get a whole lot of freezer aisle love, but Blue Moon Sorbet is still trying to get your attention (and I'm afraid to find out if it deserves it)
Blackberry Lime, Pear Giner, Raspberry Cassis, Lemon Zest, Mango Passion, Red Raspberry, Peach Melba, Wild Blueberry, Grapefruit Campari & Strawberry Daiquiri.
More gelato from Gelato Guiliana.
Cool, this one sounds evil: AMERICAN KISS (VARIETY OF CHOCOLATE BARS)
Giovanna Gelato e Sorbet... I know, sounds like the last one, but they appear to be a smaller company. They have a "white chocolate cranberry" gelato, now that sounds different.
Last one, Bindi Sorbetto. Their website makes me think they are a restaurant supplier and not really aimed at consumers, as in their website is making me not hungry.... OH MY, I think I just hurt my brain. Click here and check out the "Dream Bomba" = "A heart of caramel surrounded by peanut butter gelato, coated in milk chocolate and decorated with peanut butter drizzle". Oh man, I need about 2 dozen of those stat!!
Actually, let me mention one more thing. Rice Dream and Almond Dream are getting quite creative as they try to attract the non-dairy cow. You can now get Rice Dream and Almond Dream Bites, as well as the Rice Dream "sandwiches" you see below (rice dream ice cream in a chocolate shell... looks kinda messy to hold)
