Here they are! Three fresh pints straight from Edy's. We've got Hot Cocoa, Egg Nog, and Peppermint. Now I tried Hot Cocoa last December, I only rarely try mint things, and to be honest, I'm afraid of eggnog, hehehehe. My wife loves eggnog and always gets a half gallon at Christmas, but I never drink any.... strike that, I just tried a few sips of her Hood "golden" egg nog... ewww, not a big fan. I want to say it's overpoweringly sweet and it almost reminds of a super liquidy cake batter or maybe even cake batter ice cream. Ewww, she can finish that herself. I hope the ice cream is better!
Ok, I try egg nog first and... oh man, I don't like egg nog. What is that weird egg nog taste? Yuck. You egg nog lovers can have this one all to yourself, I'm good (and so is my daughter)
Whoa! That is some weird looking ice cream! I've never seen little pools of red soup before... you see how I resisted calling it something else? Now this over abundance of color does make me a little nervous, but at the same time, I am intrigued. Let's see how it tastes!
Have you ever had those pillow puff peppermint candies? Not the hard, smooth peppermint candies, no no, the puffy, somewhat softer peppermint puffs. The puffs have got a good peppermint taste mixed with a bit of a gritty texture and I've always been a big fan. Well, this ice cream pops with that same peppermint puff magic! Very Cool Edy's! I may not want this all the time, but I am amused non the less hehehehe.
The last one is hot cocoa, and I still feel pretty much how I always do. It's an ok chocolate with some chewy marshmallows in it. Just cause it's free doesn't mean I have to like it more than before.
Ok, now I mentioned free coupons didn't I? On top of these 3 free pints, Edy's has sent me 8 coupons to hand out, each for a free container of ice cream (ofcourse, they are good for Dreyer's too) -- Update: Winners are listed here - Thanks again to Edy's for the samples and for the coupons.
