Crunchkins

Crunchpops? Also, that birthday cake one makes me wonder if birthday cake flavored gum balls exist. (Spotted by Amber at Walmart.)

Yasso Cookies 'n Cream Frozen Greek Yogurt Bars

I wonder if there are folks in the Yasso offices who say, “Yassss! Yasso!” (Spotted by Lindsay A at Target.)

Arctic Zero Chunky (Brownie Blast, Snickerdoodle Dandy, and Banana Pudding)

Three hundred calories per pint? So I can enjoy a quarter of a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream pint that has 250 calories or an entire pint of Arctic Zero frozen dessert that has 300 calories. It’s an easy choice. I’d choose to eat potato chips, because I’m not in the mood for something sweet right now. (Spotted by Sylvia at Sprouts.)

Cadbury Crunchie Cookies

I’m sure these aren’t new in the U.K., but do the U.K. ones say “cookies” or “biscuits”? (Spotted by Amanda at Target.)

Why is the Strawberry Kiwi one not Cranberry Strawberry Kiwi? (Spotted by Joshua G at Publix.)

    1. @ rob why would u choose artic zero as your 1st “ice cream” in years lol dont get your hopes up. artic zero is terrible. and it’s not even ice cream btw. its pretty much a frozen protein shake.

  1. I actually really enjoy Arctic Zero but if these are anything like their last flavors it will probably be another six months before I see them in any stores around me. I personally think Halo Top is a million times better but I can never seem to find anything other than their Vanilla and lemon pints, and those are only at Wegman’s (about an hour drive for me). If anyone tries their new flavors (and has more to say rather than they’re garbage) please let me know what you think so I know which one to try first!

  2. Artic zero is so disgusting. there are so many better lacctose free ice creams out there.. honestly was the worst ‘ice cream’ i had ever had

    1. I tried the Arctic Zero Brownie Blast frozen dessert & while it’s not as good as something like Talenti, Ben & Jerry’s, etc. it wasn’t awful either. It was actually a lot better than I thought it would be.

      The base was reminiscent of the Breyer’s Brownie frozen dairy dessert & there was a fair amount of mix-ins.

      I might buy a few more of these pints for the days I feel like inhaling a whole pint of ice cream & save my Talenti, Haagen Dazs, & Gelato Fiasco for days I can control my moderation.

      If I ever find the Snickerdoodle flavor I’ll try that one as well.

  3. Arctic Zero is a great product concept but I’ve found most of the flavors that I’ve tried always leave a weird aftertaste.

  4. Bought the Crunchkins at Wal-Mart today & it’s really good!

    The most accurate flavor has to be the glazed donut since it tastes like mini Tastykake donut holes.

    The worst flavor of the bunch was the Brownie Batter flavor since it just tasted like a regular malt ball.
