If this sells well, I imagine a pretzel version will show up. I also imagine that cow’s head will be the cause of future nightmares. (Spotted by Carla at Roth’s IGA and Robbie at H-E-B.)

I could Google to find out what a cheese crown is. Or I could copy and paste what it says on the Graeter’s website. “A Cincinnati bakery tradition for over half a century, the Cheese Crown danish inspired this cheesecake flavored ice cream with cinnamon sugar pastry pieces and fondant icing flakes for a wholly decadent treat.” (Spotted by Bob K at Giant Eagle.)

  1. Aaaalright…. i never heard of “Cheese Crown” as an ice cream flavor (it also seemes to be a creation of Graeter’s) but now it’s the only flavor i want right now! ^^
    Sounds delicious. Can’t wait for the reviews to pop up. 🙂
    (Kinda jealous, that i won’t get my hands on this flavor ^^)

  2. Haven’t seen the kids Outshine bars yet, but if they’re nondairy then I’ll definitely try them even though my freezer is already stuffed with other Outshine flavors. Maybe I’ll just have to eat the whole box in one sitting. Yeah, that would do it. The regular outshine bars of all sorts (fruit and fruit&veg) are wonderful, although I miss the coconut water ones they used to have. Some of them are more like sherbet (peach, mango, pineapple, raspberry, strawberry, lime, pomegranate, tangerine… aw heck, they’re all like sherbet!). Satisfies the ice cream cravings for me without the dairy-induced headaches etc.

    Warning: you will be spoiled forever and can never go back to the artificially flavored fruity Popsicles of your youth. I know because I’ve tried.
