A Word to the (Ice Cream Craving) Wise

Our local grocery store has discounted some Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream pints 50% . We "stocked up". I am using the phrase "stocked up" loosely since we don't usually buy Ben and Jerry's, so I am calling a few pints "stocked up". We aren't sure if Ben & Jerry's is discontinuing them or if our store is just pulling them. You might want to check the ice cream section on your next grocery trip. Not a bad way to treat yourself!

Flavors being pulled:
Neapolitan Dynomite - Cherry Garcia and chocolate fudge brownie ice creams, side by side (Mmm! Cherry Garcia Frozen Yogurt is my favorite Ben & Jerry's ice cream.)
The Gobfather - Chocolate ice cream with fudge-covered almonds and a nougat swirl (Almonds are good for you, right?)
Black & Tan - Cream stout ice cream with swirled with chocolate ice cream (Granted, I am not a beer drinker, but this just sounds gross to me. Beer ice cream? Only in America... and maybe Ireland.)
Turtle Soup - Vanilla ice cream with fudge and caramel cashews and a caramel swirl (Pecans are good for you, right?)
Fossil Fuel - Sweet cream ice cream with with chocolate cookie pieces, fudge dinosaurs and fudge swirl (Our budding paleontologist is very upset that she was not told about this sooner.)
American Pie - Apple pie ice cream with pieces of crust and apple pie filling (Apple pie a la mode in the freezer!)
Coffee - Coffee ice cream made with Fair Trade Certified (tm) coffee (I'm not a coffee person. What do you think of Earl Grey ice cream? Hey, I already have Earl Grey soap.)

Food Lion is closing out quite a bit of B&J's here -- such a temptation!
