2014 New Frozen Treat Guide

Alrighty, I had toyed with making this year's product guide just a facebook photo album, but it's making it hard for me to gauge how far Nick and I have gotten through this season's products. [Then I started the guide and my phone glitched and lost a chunk of my new product photos!]. Anyway, without further ado, I give you the condensed 2014 New Frozen Treat Guide. Enjoy, keep score, and scoop on! (Just like every year, this is a work in progress. If you see something new, let us know in the comments, by email, through facebook, or via twitter. Thanks!

  1. Why are you not going to review the wonka pops?

  2. watch the face this person makes:

  3. OK this comment is only related by the fact that it's an ice cream question, but.....I was sitting on my couch last night eating a double chocolate Talenti pop and read the ingredient list. I had no idea it had vermouth in it. Do many ice creams contain alcohol? Maybe you need to review ice creams containing liquor specifically?

  4. ha, a few people thought I was crazy when I said there was alcohol in their double dark chocolate gelato pints, but I was right! In general, alcohol is a rare thing, but high end companies (like Talenti) do dabble with it on occasion.

  5. Alcohol prevents ice crystals. Vodka is often used in homemade low fat ice creams. I use it (and I don't even drink)

  6. Adam, while that's true, that's not the reason why Talenti uses the vermouth. They use it for the taste and note that in their description of the flavor.
