GLOBAL GRUB – Magnum 5 Kisses Ice Cream Bars (Denmark)

Magnum First Kiss Creme Brulee Ice Cream Bar

The Magnum 5 Kisses line has been available in Europe for a couple of years. The creme brûlée one is the first of five. Here’s a list of all five. It takes a while for new Magnum varieties to make it to the U.S., so I don’t expect to get these any time soon.

In the meantime, I guess I’ll just dip an entire pint of Ben & Jerry’s Creme Brûlée into a bowl of melted chocolate. Wait. What? Ben & Jerry’s discontinued the flavor. Well then, I’ll just dip a 14-ounce container of Häagen-Dazs Creme Brûlée ice cream into a bowl of melted chocolate. Wait. What? Häagen-Dazs discontinued it? Bah. Grocery Gems has a Magnum No. 1 First Kiss Creme Brûlée Ice Cream Bar review. (Thanks Eve for the photo!)

Smuckers Simple Delight Dark Chocolate and Chocolate Coconut Topping

Smucker's Simple Delight Hot Fudge and Salted Caramel Topping

I’ve created a list of things I’d put these on. It includes ice cream, cinnamon rolls, cookies, and body parts. (Spotted by Erin at Walmart.)

Limited Edition Pepperidge Farm Strawberry Swirl Bread

I wonder if the CEOs of Pepperidge Farm and Thomas’ have a competition every year to see which company can come out with the most limited edition flavors. (Spotted by Troy A at Meijer.)

Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Puffs Barbeque

A new Goldfish Puffs flavor! Are you pumped about it? Oh wait. Are you puffed about it? (Spotted by Elliot at Walmart.)

Simply Balance Organic Rolled Tortilla Chips

Rolled tortilla chips with chia seeds are a better way to eat chia than raiding a Chia Pet kit. (Spotted by Dustin at Target.)

Crumbs Bake Shop Make Your Own

According to Wikipedia, Crumbs Cake Shop is the largest cupcake chain in the U.S. But I can’t think of another cupcake chain in the U.S., so I guess they’re the largest by default? (Spotted by Shannon at Target.)
