Well, we already knew which new Ben & Jerry's flavors were hitting us first, but it's nice to actually see them in my local freezer section. We've got Late Night Snack, Red Velvet Cake, bonaroo BUZZ, and Clusterfluff. I've also heard from a few people that Walmart alone is carrying limited edition blueberry cheesecake.
I mentioned that Breyers has converted the OVERLOAD! line up to the BLASTS! lineup. We've now got WAFFLE CONE with Hershey's coating, Chips Ahoy! which is a vanilla base with fudge swirl and chips ahoy cookies and OREO which is a chocolate base with Oreo cookies.
We've also got Mrs. Fields Mint Fudge Brownies, Mrs. Fields Chocolate Fudge Brownies, and Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough. Wait, what? competing BLASTS! flavors? That's weird. I'll have to do some investigating on this one.
Now the new Nestle Caramel Trio ice cream sandwiches probably caught you eye at first glance, but look down below! Haagen-Dazs, which is owned by Nestle, now has their own snack sized, ALL NATURAL, sundae cones! I'd hazard a guess that they are the same size as Lil' Drums (mini drumsticks). I do love cones, so you know I will be trying these sooner rather than later. Can I throw a quick ding out at Nestle for the name "caramel trio". Just like the "three tenors" are, you know, 3 tenors, caramel trio should mean 3 caramel flavors, or they should call it something else.
Now I don't know if this is new-new, but it says limited edition and I've never noticed them before. It's Luigi's chocoalte banana and chocolate cherry 6 pack. Now I won't be buying these things, especially since I prefer Lindy's, but maybe somebody out there will be excited.
Ok, more new goodies from Nestle. Well, maybe I should say one of them is a retooled idea from Nestle. I've had a butterfinger bar before, but now they come in this very tempting 6 pack. More unique is the new toll house chocolate chip cookie bar! Don't think I've ever seen anything like that and a quick google search confirms my hypothesis. I'll definitely pick up a box when I head back to the store.
I got a big kick from Klondike when I saw there brand new Rocky Road Klondike Bars! I do love Rocky Road, so I will be trying these soon enough. It's chocolate and marshmallow light ice cream with a milk chocolate almond coating. Mmmmmm, Rocky Road!
Ok, that's it for now. If you spy anything else new, let me know. I do know that Blue Bell is introducing half gallons of Chocolate Mud Pie (creamy chocolate ice cream loaded with mixed-nut shortbread, a smooth milk chocolate sauce and a whipped topping swirl) and pints of Krazy Kookie Dough ( Cake Batter Ice Cream with sugar cookie dough pieces in bright shades of green, blue and pink). Hmmm, if only I could get my hands on some! Perry's has Very Cherry, Banana Cream Pie and Light Piece of Cake coming to stores, though I'd much rather try their ice cream stand only Sprinkle Cone flavor so I could discover what Sugar cone ice cream tastes like.
Update: I just saw two new triple flavors from Edy's. I saw Triple Cookie Fudge Sundae and Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Sundae. I will pick one up when I head back to the store since I'm intrigued by the whole side by side by side flavor layout.
