I'm still on my ice cream kick. I blame the summer heat.
Now, it's not the homemade stuff - yet. We still have to get rid of two pints of store bought in the freezer.
One is some "premium" stuff from an Ohio-based company called Jeni's. They have stores in the would-be snootier neighborhoods. ....and all the stores have lines to get in.
Blobby does not wait in lines, let alone for ice cream.
However, they do sell it at some grocery stores, but at - get this - $9.99 a fucking pint (a pint!!!), it's a little pricey. ....and that's an understatement.
We've tried a few different kinds. The raspberry chip is ok. The double chocolate started out ok, but then it just tasted like you were eating frozen Hershey's syrup. And the chocolate salty caramel was just so-so. None of it worth a sawbuck.
The other one was something I've never had either. Believe it or not, I've never ever tried any Ben & Jerry flavours. Not one. While Denton already has one chubby hubby, somehow we ended up with it in a cart and into our freezer. Not like a Jeffery Dahmer-ism, but just in a grocery sense.
Can I break down what is in Chubby Hubby? ....and no, I do not mean me.
vanilla malt ice cream swirled with fudge and peanut butter, and containing pretzel nuggets covered in fudge and filled with peanut butter.
Yeah in theory it sounds like all the right items, but it doesn't work and I'm only a chubbier hubby for trying it.
Now there is only a pint left in the freezer - Key Lime. I'm not a fan of the pie, let alone the ice cream, so I'm not touching it. I'll save calories for a better flavour.....or cookies........or tequila.
