Ben & Jerry's Rockin' Blondies and Peanut Butter Jam Session

Target has two new exclusive flavors with music-themed names: Rockin’ Blondies and Peanut Butter Jam Session. I’m disappointed there isn’t a third musical flavor called I-Raisin Reggae Big Up. (Spotted by Lindsay at Target.)

Dole BBQ Ranch Chopped! Salad Kit

Dole Chipotle & Cheddar Chopped Salad Kit

Dole Asian Blend and Bacon & Bleu Chopped! Salad Kit

I figure the Spotted posts should be like my actual diet and include salad once in a while. (Spotted by Sylvia at Ralph’s.)

Lindt Hello My Name Is Chocolate Sticks

If you think about it, Berry Affair and Coconut Love could also be stripper names. (Spotted by Sylvia at Target.)

Jello Butterscotch and Banana Split Pudding Snacks

If you think about it, Butterscotch and Banana Split could also be stripper names. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

  1. I’ve tried both Ben and Jerry’s flavors. The Rockin Blondie was a HUGE disappointment…had virtually NO brownies in my pint, just slivers of butterscotch. The Peanut Butter Jam was excellent. It really was like eating a PB&J sandwich. It would have been perfect had the jam been strawberry as opposed to raspberry, but that’s just a personal preference.

  2. I also thought the Rockin Blondie was disappointing; more like Rockin Blandie. ZZZING! The ice cream base didn’t have much flavor, the butterscotch bits were odd and kind of small, and the blondies (I had quite a few) were not that great.

  3. The Jell-O “new” flavors doesn’t seem new to me. I have seen those flavors before.

    Why they would shrink the 6 pack cups to stupid 4 packs smaller cups?!

  4. Good to know I’m not the only one who was “blah” about the blondie ice cream. I thought the blondie pieces had a weird texture and didn’t taste like much of anything. I was bummed!

  5. I have served the chopped Asian salad two different ways and it was great. Once time I added some peanuts and a peanut dressing. the other I dressed it as a coleslaw. My husband preferred it to my regular coleslaw.
