Haagen-Dazs Irish Cream Brownie Ice Cream

[New for 2019] Good news for our spirit enjoying friends out there. I was thinking that the Spirits line was dead for 2022 because, well, it tends to not get much love in grocery stores. Well, I was wrong! The more popular flavors are being rolled in to the main HD lineup. The flavors transitioning are bourbon praline pecan, bourbon vanilla bean truffle, rum tres leches and...

Baskin-Robbins Milkshakes

Ok, let's start with the bad news: no more BR reviews for awhile since the insiders program has been suspended. Man, I'm going to miss those happy boxes arriving every month!

With that in mind, maybe it was fitting that we got the world's saddest drive thru person on our way home from Jersey yesterday.

Haagen-Dazs Vanilla Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

In my 2021 quest to collect all of the new Haagen-Dazs lids, I found two more at my local Hannaford (Food Lion to some of you). Let me jump start this review by saying that the vanilla chocolate chip is so much better than their take on Cookies & Cream.

Top Ten New Reviews of 2021

It's been kind of a rough year hasn't it? 2021 was supposed to be better than 2020, and it some ways it was, but in many ways it wasn't. Anyway... as expected, blog traffic is down another 20%+ as people move to more doom-scrolling-friendly platforms. In unexpected news, Instagram decided that I was no longer worthy of their love and has relegated me to the non-viral bin. Something happened in early June and since then it has been near impossible for me to get any of my posts seen by non-followers... in fact, many posts don't even get seen by my followers. Fun times....  but let's get to the top ten list which thankfully has a clear cut winner.
