Cold Stone Creamery Blueberry Donut Ice Cream Shake

Cold Stone Creamery has four new creations, but the most interesting is the Blueberry Donut Ice Cream Shake that features Cold Stone’s Sweet Cream Ice Cream with fresh blueberries and a blueberry donut blended in. It’s topped with whipped cream and garnished with another blueberry donut.

If that doesn’t excite you, Cold Stone Creamery is also offering the following:

The Not So Vanilla Creation that’s made up Sea Salt Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, caramel, fudge, and Hershey’s TAKE5 Candy Bar pieces.

The Triple the Berry that has the chain’s new Triple Berry Yogurt, whipped topping, fresh blueberries, and a blueberry donut.

Finally, there’s the Berry Paradise Crunch Creation that features a waffle cone filled with Hibiscus Sorbet, Berry Granola, and raspberries.

All four treats are available until June 21.

If you’ve tried any of them, share your thoughts in the comments.

SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Jell-o Creations Princess Cups Dessert Kit

Jell-o Creations Princess Cups Dessert Kit

I wish I had a daughter so that I could help her make one of these dessert cups. She’ll probably want to dress up as a princess and she’ll probably want me to dress up as a princess. I’ll say, “Why can’t I be a prince?” She’ll say, “Because it’s a PRINCESS party, silly.” And I’ll be, “All right” and then go to Party City to try and put together a princess outfit.

Is 2016 the Year of Products Inspired by Food Trucks? (Spotted by Timothy at ShopRite.)

Back in my day, there was only peppermint bark and it was available only during the Christmas season. Now we have fancy summer barks. (Spotted by Rachel C at Target.)

Hey! Cape Cod’s Roasted Black Garlic Potato Chips have a cousin! Or is it sibling? They’re related, but I don’t know how. (Spotted by Aaron S at Giant.)

I prefer the glass bottles. They’re much more handy in a restaurant fight. (Spotted by Rebecca W at Price Chopper.)

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Finding Dory

I imagine finding Dory in the movie will take awhile, but finding Dory’s face on food products will be really easy for the next few months. (Spotted by Robbie at H-E-B.)

Curate Kids Bars (Chocolate & Banana, Apple & Cinnamon, and Oatmeal & Chocolate Chunk)
Curate Kids Bars (Chocolate & Banana, Apple & Cinnamon, and Oatmeal & Chocolate Chunk)

The adult Curate bars have names like Decadence, Tempting, and Indulgent. I think these Curate Kids Bars should have fun names too. Here’s some ideas that popped into my head: Delight, Merriment, Sparkle, and Joie de Vivre. (Spotted by Carla at Target.)

SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Mountain Dew DEWcision 2016 Pitch Black and Baja Blast

Mountain Dew DEWcision 2016 Pitch Black

Mountain Dew DEWcision 2016 Baja Blast

I’d like Pitch Black to win DEWcision 2016 because I can already get Baja Blast at Taco Bell. So if it loses and disappears from shelves, no big whoop. Go to Taco Bell and get it with my combo #9. (Spotted by Spencer at Kroger and Tim at Walmart.)

SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Hostess Brownies made with Milk Chocolate M&M’s

Hostess Brownies made with Milk Chocolate M&M's

Hostess Brownies with Milky Way look much more interesting than these. Or maybe it’s the smug look on the Red M&M’s face that make these less appealing. (Spotted by Adam N at Walmart.)
