The Sugar Cookie Ice Cream sounded pretty good, I figured it couldn’t be much different than regular Cookie Dough. But, Peppermint Ice Cream? Yeah, I was skeptical to say the least!
As I have mentioned a time or two, I am an International Exchange Coordinator with EF Foundation for Foreign Study… a group of 3 IECs in this area supervise about 50 kids each school year. We are also available for all of their host family members. We try to do things through the year to get everyone together… like the Christmas Party we just had.
Everyone is supposed to bring something different to the Party and I brought Ice Cream thanks to Blue Bunny. I know y’all are thinking, “Ice Cream? In the middle of December?” I live in South Alabama… although we did get a 20 degree cold snap a couple weeks ago, it was upper 60’s for the party. Certainly not too cold for Ice Cream and everyone was excited that I brought it.
Their website does not have the Limited Edition Christmas flavors up, so I am going to take a bit to introduce you to them.
One of the host Dads enjoying a Sugar Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich: This was my least favorite of the three, but it was still pretty good. I also had a host parent that nibbled some of everyone’s Ice Cream and she said this was her favorite. It is Sugar Cookie ice cream in a sugar cookie sandwich. I prefer really sweet and this wasn’t extremely sweet.
One of our Exchange Students (Germany) enjoying a Hot Cocoa Ice Cream Sandwich - Ok, this was by far my favorite of all the sandwiches and ice creams that we were sent to test out. Chocolate in Chocolate, YUM! On the other hand, the lady I mentioned above? She really liked it but said it was really sweet.
Another of our Exchange Students enjoying a Perfectly Peppermint Ice Cream Sandwich – As I said above, I was really unsure of this… Peppermint in Ice Cream just does not sound good to me…. now, I have tried it and I really like it! To me it is definitely a unique taste, but seriously it is good. Peppermint light ice cream with a peppermint ribbon between two chocolaty layers. Even sounds pretty good, huh?
We also had:
- Blue Bunny’s Premium Spumoni ice cream – I am not crazy about this one, but Zack (my middle boy) says this is his favorite: Old World And Spumoni Fruit & Nut – my husband says it is like an Ice Cream Fruit Cake and I think I have to agree with him.
- Premium Perfectly Peppermint ice cream (say that 3 times fast, LOL!)– I really like this one better, I am thinking that is because it doesn’t have the chocolate sandwich and is just ice cream and peppermint.
So, what can you do with Blue Bunny Ice Cream if it is cold in your area? Their site has plenty of awesome recipe ideas including:
Blue Bunny® Hot Caramel Latte – which looks amazing to me! I love Lattes.
Plus, if you get to your local grocery store before they run out, you can get your hands on their Limited Edition Flavors and make these great sounding recipes:
- Frosty Peppermint Reindeer Cupcakes
- Peppermint Fudge Charlotte Russe
- Spumoni Ornaments
- Hot Cocoa White Chocolate Mousse Squares
- Frozen Cookie Baklava
Take a moment to look the above over.. you could start a new tradition this Holiday Season!
