Hi there! Happy Friday!! Finally this week is almost over! I don’t know about you but this week has felt like it has taken forever to go by! I’m so glad that it’s finally Friday and that the weekend is just around the corner. The weather is supposed to be absolutely stunning today! The sun is out right now and it’s supposed to go up to 80! I think it’s going to be a beautiful day weather wise. Hopefully it’s a beautiful day inside too at work.
What are you doing this weekend? Tonight I’m checking out a new restaurant. I can’t wait to tell all of you about it. I’m super excited! Tomorrow, I don’t really have any plans. I do plan on sleeping in. I can’t wait for that. On Sunday, it’s Mother’s Day and I am going to brunch with Mike’s family and then we are going out to dinner with my mom. I cannot wait for that! We are having dinner at one of Melissa and my favorite restaurants! We are over the moon to go there! Plus we have a gift card to use so it makes it that much better!
Yesterday after work, Melissa and I hung out together! We ventured to the mall to a store to pick up something that we wanted to get for our mom from there. Then we ventured to Wegman’s for dinner. I actually got Moe’s Southwest Grill because Melissa had a coupon and I brought that into Wegmans. I know. I’m a rebel! After that, we went to a few more stores and then called it an evening. We had a great time together and I think our mom is going to love what we got her for Mother’s Day!
Today is another edition of Fun Finds Friday! I feel like I haven’t done one of these in a while and I’m excited about today’s feature. Today I am going to feature new ice cream flavors. I figure since the weather is getting warmer, most people enjoy having ice cream in the summer. So why not feature some new flavors for you to try out? Let’s get started!
Edy’s has come out with three new slow churned flavors. They are: German Chocolate Cake Spectacular, Sunny Salted Caramel Pretzel, and Take The Cake! I don’t know about you but all three of these flavors sound incredible! You may notice that the picture says Dreyer’s. Edy’s and Dreyer’s are the same company. It depends where you live if your store carried Edy’s or Dreyer’s. Typically, I think Edy’s is on the East Coast. That is what I have noticed. These limited edition flavors are only around until August so be sure to pick them up when you see them!
Each month Baskin Robbins has a special flavor that they feature and for this month it is Blueberry Shortbread! It is Shortbread and blueberry flavored ice creams with a lemon shortbread cookie ribbon. I think that sounds like a light and refreshing ice cream to me. I’d be willing to try it out.
Each month, Dairy Queen features a special blizzard and for this month it is Choco Peanut Butter Brownie! That sounds like all of my favorite things put into one! It has peanut butter topping, choco chunks, and brownie pieces swirled into vanilla soft serve. Yum! I need to try this asap!
I know this isn’t an ice cream flavor but it’s a new milkshake treat from a favorite fast food restaurant. I personally don’t think I would try this because I am not a huge fan of peach flavored treats but it might sound good to some of you so that is why I am featuring it.
Ben and Jerry’s has added three new Greek Frozen Yogurt flavors to their line. They are: Liz Lemon (Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt with a Blueberry Lavender Swirl), Pineapple Passionfruit (Pineapple Greek Frozen Yogurt with Chunks of Pineapple & a Passionfruit Swirl), and Vanilla Honey Caramel (Vanilla Greek Frozen Yogurt with a Honey Caramel Swirl). I think these flavors sound amazing plus they are Greek Frozen Yogurt!
In addition to the Greek Frozen Yogurt, Ben & Jerry’s has added three other flavors to their regular ice cream line. They have added: Coffee, Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz! (Coffee Ice Cream with Espresso Bean Fudge Chunks), Cannoli (Mascarpone Ice Cream with Fudge Covered Cannoli Pastry Shell Chunks & a Mascarpone Swirl), and Chocolate Peppermint Crunch (Chocolate Ice Cream with Peppermint and Fudge Swirls and Mint Chocolate Cookie Balls). I don’t know about you but I need to run to grab that Cannoli ice cream! I am a HUGE fan of Cannoli’s so this flavor is perfect for me to try!
Turkey Hill has added four new flavors to their Frozen Yogurt line! They are: Honey Vanilla Granola (Honey Vanilla Frozen Yogurt with cinnamon granola and graham swirl), Southern Lemon Pie, Peanut Butter Pie (Peanut Butter frozen yogurt with peanut butter cups and graham crust swirl), and PomBlueberry Chocolate Truffle (Pomegranate Blueberry low fat frozen yogurt with dark chocolate fudge truffles). I’ve grown up with Turkey Hill since it is local to PA. I love that they are making healthier ice cream!
As you can see Blue Bunny has come out with one regular new flavor and two new flavors from their Frozen Yogurt line! The first new flavor is Caramel Fudge Sundae (Chocolate ice cream swirled with caramel flavored low fat ice cream embedded with rich dark fudge brownie pieces and laced with buttery caramel ribbons), and the Frozen Yogurt is: Chocolate Fudge Brownie (All natural chocolate frozen yogurt swirled with a fudge sauce and loaded with chocolate brownie), and White Mint Chocolate Chunk (All natural white mint frozen yogurt loaded with chocolate chunks).
Breyer’s always had vanilla lactose free which I love because I am lactose intolerant. In order for me to enjoy ice cream I have to take pills before. But now I see they have another flavor, chocolate!! That is exciting news!! I’m glad to see another ice cream flavor that I can enjoy without taking pills!
Breyer’s has also come out with a limited edition flavor of Strawberry Shortcake (filled with delicious bites of shortcake and a sweet strawberry swirl). Yum!
So there you have a bunch of new ice cream flavors! I hope this helps make your spring/summer a little more sweet. Have you tried any of these flavors? Which ones would you most want to try? I’m dying to try almost all of the ones I have mentioned. I see a lot of ice cream in my future!
Have a great Friday, a lovely weekend and to all of you mom’s out there, we salute you! Happy Mother’s Day!!
