This week I bought a box of Lucerne’s “Scandalous Cookie” ice cream.
Buying ice cream is no easy task for me. I am not the biggest ice cream fan, but it is one of Carl’s evening staples, so I try to buy it once a month or so and when I do buy it I want it to be delicious. I spend many minutes deliberating in front of the grocery store freezer: fruity? chocolately? minty? chunky? peanut buttery? something Carl loves but I don’t really like? something I love but he doesn’t really like? If I had a cell phone I would definitely use my phone-a-friend.
Our favourite ice cream by far is President’s Choice’s “Cream First” line (seriously, Loblaws/Superstore should pay me to do their advertising, you should hear me go on about their chocolate chunks), but I only buy ice cream that is $5 or less so I have to wait for sales to get the good stuff.
Anyways, Lucerne seemed safe, even if it does come in a cardboard box which has to be the worst ice cream holder EVER.
So, Scandalous Cookie! That sounds good, right?
This is what it looked like in my bowl.
I feel there has been a misunderstanding.
Lucerne, “scandalous” does not equal “vanilla with occasional odd-textured parts“. Shame on you.
When I think scandalous, I think this:
Well, maybe a few other things, but this blog is PG rated :)
In terms of cookie dough ice cream when I think scandalous I at least think this:
Mmm, Ben and Jerry’s.
Either way, this was a bit of a letdown in the ice cream department, to say the least. Time to make pies and apple crisp and skillet cookies to eat under my vanilla ice cream. I think I will be ok with that.
KATY… I am totally interested in this “ice cream”!!! Can you message me the recipe on face book?
ANNA… I definately think that you should be giving LUCERNE a call… and complain…. ripped off!!! NEVER mess with the ice cream.. if it says scandalous cookie… it better be!!!!
I should show you my newest favourite “ice cream”. I don’t know if it can really be called that because it has no cream. Or sugar. It’s still yum though.
Ice cream is pretty serious business… I shall have to try this “Cream First” stuff you talk of.
I am not really an ice cream person…now Liberté Mediterraean Moka or Coconut or Lemon..even Walnut and Plum yogurt…That’s my kind of treat. Yum! Those are scandalous…the price and the milk fat %…but SO good.
(I love you)
Anna! You have me bustin’ a gut over here! MAN! I can so relate to this. Awesome post. lol.
Have I told you lately that I love you?!
I think the most scandalous part of this post is the fact that you don’t have a cell phone!
