Now I still love market basket and all, but the abuse their ice cream suffers and their overall lack of selection has driven me back into the arms of price chopper for a fair amount of my shopping. For the most part, Market Basket only carries less dense mainstream ice cream and it's just no match for people constantly opening and closing the freezers. Oh, speaking of that, can I rant?
For the love of all that is special and fresh, can we all agree to pick our flavor with the ice cream door closed? I can't tell you how often I see someone with the door jacked open as they pick up each and every flavor. Ahhhh, it drives me nuts. If you need to read labels (which I do too), you pull out the product, close the door, read, then put it back. Or, if there is three or four pints or quarts of the same thing next to each other, just flip one of them around, close the door, and read it through the door. Ok, somewhere a grocery store employee is cursing me going "oh, you're the jerk who leaves all the boxes backward on the shelf!". Hey, I flip them back for the most part.
Anyway, I shall return soon enough. We've already got word of Ben & Jerry's "Truffle Kerfuffle" and "Urban Bourbon" thanks to Candy Hunting, as well as Hostess Snoball frozen dairy dessert bars. Also, Jeffrey our Canadian buddy happened to go to DQ today and noticed that they've added two new royal brownie blizzards to the menu (and ditched the rocky road one). He tried the one with Reese's and was disappointed unfortunately.
If you see something new, let me know. If you want to vent about freezer burn or your fellow shoppers, go for it. And lastly, if you've had Alden's before, share your thoughts with us!
