A glazed cinnamon donut doesn’t seem limited edition appropriate. It’s like have vanilla as a limited edition ice cream flavor. (Spotted by Maria L at Stop & Shop.)

  1. I’ve never heard of Tiger’s Blood as a flavor before, but Google tells me that really is a thing. Talk about an unattractive name for a food!

  2. This an ad for Red Button Vintage Creamery? Maybe I’m just confused because it’s a brand that is in just one city, Salt Lake City, and ice cream that is on the same level as the cheaper stuff (Edy’s, Breyers, Blue Bunny, etc.)

  3. Tiger’s Blood is a very popular shaved ice flavor in Utah. The cinnamon chocolate chip is more like a fireball … Or like Chocolate covered cinnamon bears made by the Sweets Brand (a Utah candy company that I think make the Trader Joe’s sour T&J’s). Cinnamon bears are also a favorite in Utah – they are one of the most popular items in the BYU bookstore. Red Button Creamery also makes a sprinkled animal cookie flavor that tastes exactly like the pink and white sprinkled animal cookies you eat as a kid, and a black licorice flavor that even my two-year-old niece loves. She always asks for black ice cream!

    Red Button is not a premium ice cream by any means, but I think it is very good for a budget ice cream (and this is coming from someone who usually goes for McConnells).
