Haagen-Dazs Coconut Caramel Chocolate Trio

[New for 2018] Of the new Haagen-Dazs products coming out in 2018, I was having trouble deciding if I was more excited for the cookie squares or the three new Trio flavors. I know some of you were a little underwhelmed by the first four Trio flavors, but they've gone ahead an added a fourth component in the form of a swirl. Let's see what it does.

Big Friendly Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich

[New for 2018] Do you ever buy something and then think about it constantly until you can finally take the time to try it out properly? That's how I felt about this next treat.

Ben & Jerry's P.B. Dough Moo-phoria Light Ice Cream

[New for 2018] When you are trying to keep your business viable and growing and you see a new trend popping up, what do you do? Do you wait for the trend to pass by like so many trends before it, or do you try to steal a little piece of the pie with a new line up? In general, you give it a shot, and that's where Moo-phoria comes in. Ben & Jerry's has dumped a bunch of calories and fat without resorting to sugar substitutes. On paper, it sounds like a winner.

Turkey Hill Mint Cookie Trio'politan Ice Cream

[New for 2018] I find it amusing that we have a secondary trend going on this year... ok, trend might be a stretch, but is it not amusing that Haagen-Dazs Trio is being joined by Edy's Triple Cores and Turkey Hill Trio'politan. The lid even says "Trio" all over it. Now while Breyer's is busy swirling two frozen dairy desserts in to one container, Turkey Hill is taking things up a notch by shoving three ice creams in to one container side by side by side.

Kemps JoyFULL Scoops Frozen Yogurt

[New for 2018] It's been a tough week and a long day, so let's do a quick post. Kemps, the midwest folks who seem to put out a new froyo every six months, have merged their froyo love with the current annoying trend of replacement sugar in products to bring down the calorie count. Sorry, you know the sugar replacement trend bugs me more than it should.

JoyFULL Scoops sounds like Lovin Scoopful and Sweet Scoops decided to team up.

I thought the packaging was fairly catchy which is a good thing because I was not expecting to find Kemp's at my local Price Chopper. There were four flavors in all. Mint Chocolate Chip, Sea Salt Caramel, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. I was just about to grab that last when I decided to read the ingredients...

Yup, Erythritol and Monk Fruit Extract. No thanks. Nevermind. Look, if you prefer these two over splenda or calories, that's fine by me, that's why I'm pointing these out incase they grab your attention. The poor Yo2 lineup didn't last very long (reviews here and here) so we'll see if this line has better luck. If you wind up trying these, please leave your thoughts in the comments.

Good night! More new stuff tomorrow!
