DQ Caramel Fudge Cheesecake Blizzard

[New for 2022] Yes, we are back at DQ! Wait, that probably doesn't make sense unless I mentioned that we were there a week before to get the always enjoyable, annual pumpkin pie blizzard fix. Anyway, we went back to try a blizzard that actually debuted last year.

Magnum Double Gold Caramel Ice Cream Bars

[New for 2023] With Magnum tubs fading in to obscurity (only 3 flavors left here in the states), that means that this Magnum product is probably the only new thing I can cover... and yeah, I may have bought this like six+ months ago and forgot about it. Whoops.

Wendy's Pumpkin Spice Frosty

[New for Fall 2023] A new limited edition frosty debuted today, and while I've kind of given up hope on frostys in general, I couldn't help but try it.

[New for Mid 2023] Have you seen the Netflix Scoops Ahoy Ice Cream Parlor "Pints" pop up at Walmart or in your social media feed yet? I'm guessing you have, but if not, here they are! The question is, do you know me well enough to know which flavor I tried first?
