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.
