Everything but the...

I'm hardly an ice cream expert. But I do love two special guys from Vermont. I'm talking about Ben & Jerry. They are ice cream experts.

It may seem lame to blog about ice cream. But the point of this blog is to talk about my life, and part of my life involves eating delicious ice cream.

I'm addicted to buying the cleverly named little containers of ice cream. We don't eat ice cream in large quantities so I don't like to buy half gallons because they won't get eaten. We have a container of Schwann's ice cream in the freezer right now, and it's been there almost two weeks. Its barely half gone. If it were at someone else's house (I'm talking about my sister's, Jeremy loves ice cream more than anyone I've ever met), it would be long gone.

But I only eat small quantities, therefore I have a love affair with Ben & Jerry.

My latest flavor of the week was called "Everything but the...". It was chocolate and vanilla ice cream, with white chocolate chunks, peanut butter cups, chocolate covered almonds and heath bar chunks. I give it a C-.

Part of the reason I bought this particular flavor was for the white chocolate and peanut butter cups, not for me, but for David. I didn't want to eat it alone, so I bought a kind I thought he would like. He did. He liked it way more than me.

I just didn't care for the white chocolate or the peanut butter cups. They were kind of gross. White chocolate in general is overrated. And the ice cream was swirled chocolate and vanilla swirled, which wasn't that great.

The almonds were really good, and the toffee pieces were okay. But overall, not my favorite flavor. Better luck next time I guess.

Totally appropriate to blog about ice least to this ice cream devourer, anyway. And, I eat it in large quantities. My favorite grocery store brand of all is Blue Bell (not to be confused with Blue Bunny). It's amazing! Taste just like homemade ice cream. If you're lucky enough to find it in the store, you'll likely find pint sizes, too! So...perfect for you! I recommend the strawberry, homemade vanilla, and cookies and cream...well, all of it actually!
