SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Airheads Ice Cream

Airheads Ice Cream (Grape and Green Apple)

Airheads Ice Cream (Pink Lemonade, Strawberry, and Watermelon)

Airheads Ice Cream (Cherry & Blue Raspberry)

There are a lot of flavors above, but there’s also an orange flavor. If you’re wondering if they have actual Airheads in them, the press release I read says, “The ice cream also incorporates ribbons of Airheads taffy, creating an innovative, never-before-seen combination.” This kind of blows my mind because I thought Airheads get hard when they’re placed in the fridge. So I wonder how the texture will be in ice cream. (Spotted by RaveGyrl at Jewel Osco.)

I don’t want to drink Prairie Farms Peeps Marshmallow Milk. I just want to pour it into a bowl and then put an actual Peeps Marshmallow on the milk’s surface and watch it float. (Spotted by Joshua at Schuncks.)
