Ample Hills Ooey Gooey Butter Cake Ice Cream

I don't think I've ever heard anything bad about Ample Hills Creamery over the years, but as you know, I'm not the type to splurge and order online to try them. Well, they recently announced that they can be found at Roche Bros grocery stores and there is one of those right near my work.

Clocking in $7 a pint, I had 7 pints to choose from. Based on this Ample Hills news post, it seems like Oatmeal Lace was the one pint flavor that was missing from the store shelf (and probably the one I would have tried first to be honest). I took a few minutes to decide what I wanted for my 8am ice cream snack and eventually I picked up a pint of...

To chip or not to chip?

You know how I mentioned never officially reviewing Haagen-Dazs Mint Chip in my other HD post? Well, I've technically never reviewed their chocolate chocolate chip ice cream either! I know I've tried it... I mean, haven't I? Yeah, I'm like 80-90% sure I've had it before.

Dairy Queen Pumpkin Cookie Butter Shake

[New for late summer 2020] The Mrs and I finally made it back to DQ for the first time in a very long time (two years!). There wasn't anything in particular that I wanted from the menu, but then I noticed a sign for this shake and I knew we should get one to try.

Haagen-Dazs Mint Chip Ice Cream

So, I'm not really sure what's going on, but I just haven't been in to Ben & Jerry's lately. I started the task of grabbing all of the newly redesigned Haagen-Dazs pints and now I just want to eat H-D all the time and not B&J's. It's kind of weird but also kind of fun too... what's even weirded is that technically this ice cream has never been posted before, so let's take a quick look at...

News: Baskin-Robbins Trick Oreo Treat is back!

The return of Baskin-Robbins Trick Oreo Treat was announced on Sept 27th. I'm not sure how long it was gone, but the last time I had it was back in 2016 (review here).
