I know it has been a while. So I’ll break in with some ice cream talk.
Summer’s here again (not officially, yet but the kids are out the air-conditioning’s been on, so it’s summer in my book). And what screams summer like ice cold treats? I’m not a huge ice cream fan, though I admittedly eat my fair share of it. I just don’t crave it and turn to it when I want to pork down.
Frank and I used to get the small tubs of some specialty ice cream. This was years ago. But since then the kids have grown and those small tubs are too small for the lot of us. I still get them sometimes (like this Häagen-Dazs five™ ice cream, mint, good stuff). Generally I go for the Bryer’s All Natural. Frank likes that it is “real” ice cream. We all like the taste. And often it is on sale. But a few years ago we had one of those obnoxious Super Wal-marts open very close to our house. As much as I hate it, I find myself there almost daily. It is a matter of convenience and an emaciated checkbook. Can’t win every battle.
Anyway, I’m all for checking out the generics/store brands, and have done the same with the Wal-mart Great Value brand. I think we may have started with the all natural ice cream. To make a long story short: it’s a winner. The Blueberry Pomegranate is one of my favorite ice creams hands down. It is delicious and it saves me a few pennies. Score.
