Now I can eat ice cream any time of the year, but I have some friends and family members who look at me like I'm crazy when I crack open a pint of Halo Top or Ben & Jerry's on a snow day.
Just because I'm a year-round frozen dessert-a-holic doesn't mean that I don't understand the appeal of cooling down with an icy treat on a hot summer's day. But what I don't get is how out of the box people get with their frozen desserts.
Like what's wrong with some good old lemon Italian ice? Or chocolate ice cream? Or some gelato?
Just looking at that scoop action is getting me all hot and bothered.
But there are some food manufacturers that are all about thinking outside the box by taking desserts and changing them up. And some of the things, I'm not so sure about.
Like this new Sour Patch Kids Ice cream that's going to be sold at Walmart this summer.
I'm not so sure about lemoney, sour ice cream with bits of actual sour patch kids in it. Junkfoodmom's description of it on Instagram doesn't sound too appetizing either.
Couldn’t wait any longer to bust into this. From Nestle Dreyers Ice Cream Company here’s Sour Patch Kids Red, White and Blue Light Ice Cream and sorbet. Lemon sorbet and vanilla light ice cream with a Redberry swirl and blue Sour Patch Kids Bitz. This stuff is amazing.👏🏻😍 if Sour is what you’re looking for it’s here. The combo ice cream/sorbet works great and has a tart lemon flavor. The Blue Bitz are actual pieces of sp Kids - most pieces are small but I got a few half- sized pieces. What makes this Sour is the Redberry Swirl. Yikes- if you get a spoonful of it I guarantee your face will pucker up. This may not be for everyone but if you like sour sweets you’ll love this
Vanilla ice cream + lemon sorbet + raspberry sour sauce + blue SPKs = one weird as heck summer dessert.
Now that ice cream might sound kind of strange, but if it's peculiar desserts you're looking for, then you'd be an idiot for not looking to Japan. Soda slushies might not seem that uncommon, and it's because they're not.
You can pick them up wherever and have a frozen coke or Fanta slushee without having to worry whether or not the machine's going to be working when you get there.
Technically this guy's wrong. Unlike Capri Sun, opening this won't be a delicate procedure. Well, delicate for a kid, not everyone could get the form down pat in the cafeteria.
Although Coca-Cola's officially selling their slush treats in predominantly Asian markets that doesn't mean other parts of the world haven't done what they can to suck on some frozen cola.
When I was living in Germany I discovered they loved frozen, Cola flafoured pops in summer. They'd have these huge packs of tubes filled with Cola flavoured soda and you'd freeze it at home. But it was not official Cola and you couldn't drink it as is.— Advice_Daybreak (@Advice_Daybreak) April 17, 2018
While iced Sour Patch Kids and slushee Cokes and Fantas in unique packaging might seem strange, at least they're both sweet foods, so it makes sense to serve them up as frozen treats.
But what about pickle pops?
Pickle juice is packed with salt and electrolytes, so salt-loving athletes can slurp on them on a hot summer's day to rehydrate .
But be honest, if these were thrown in variety packs along with cherry, grape, lime, and lemon, pickle would probably be the last one to go.
But they seem to be popular, there are more than a few people who expressed their excitement for them.
