[New for 2022] Let's check out the last non-nutty pint in the new city sweets lineup. So far it's been a bit of hit and miss so let's see what's inside...

State of the Freezers Address
The leaky 14th anniversary edition

 Man, I should have wrote this last week on the official anniversary date because it was cooler and less humid.... and also Mother's day, so that kind of took precedence.

State of the upstairs freezer: leaky! ok, not so much leaky as overflowing. The drain line apparently froze over and there was a frozen puddle in the freezer yesterday. I've never had this happen before. After yesterday's mid-day ice cleanup, I opened the freezer around 8pm to find a fresh new puddle (still liquid). I soaked that up. I'll probably have to pop off the back cover of the freezer at some point and try to clear the line. Fun times!

Van Leeuwan Walmart Exclusive Flavors

[New for 2022] I know collaborations are nothing new, but isn't it still a little surprisingly when you see a giant company like Walmart team up with a smaller ice cream brand to deliver a lineup of 7 exclusive flavors? I've been doing this for almost 14 years and I'm still surprised. (We'll cover the two I tried first and then do a quick listing of the other 5 flavors)

Wicked Kitchen Non-Dairy Ice Cream

[New for 2022] Three weeks ago, the PR team for Wicked Kitchen sent over an email asking if I wanted to partake in the launch event for their new lupini bean based non-dairy lineup. Since I'm not always the best judge of these vegan friendly flavors, I asked my buddy Eric if he would help with reviewing some free samples. His words are after the break.
