You Scream, I Scream

My hubby has the privilege of sitting on the board of a great non-profit organization, Kids Food Basket, that feeds hungry kids. Honestly, what better cause can you find? It is a fantastic organization. The hubby’s role often requires us to go to various charity events and schmooze. So a-schmoozing I will go.

This weekend was a great event that even the kids got in on. Husdonville Ice Cream (seriously amazing, if you can get it where you live, run and get it) let us come taste 12 new flavors of ice cream in a very tasty fundraiser. It was a blast. They had magicians, clowns, photo booths, face painting and a walking pint and spoon!!! Interestingly Hannah is apparently afraid of ALL costumed characters including ones that look like ice cream.

Anyway, they began to bring out the new flavors of ice cream in 8 minute intervals. And they were so good. So good that when our kids didn’t eat all of their samples, the hubby and I finished them off. Wasted ice cream is not allowed. Chocolate Peanut Butter Explosion, Caramel Deer Traxx, Strawberry with Dark Chocolate. Every 8 minutes a new variety to try.

Did I mention these weren’t small samples? And that there truly is such a thing as too much ice cream. After about 5 I thought I was going to puke. I persevered through sample 7, but I just couldn’t go on. Even the kids were begging for no more ice cream. Jamie Oliver would be so proud. Well he would have been if we stopped after two. We made it to 10 and threw in the towel. Which made me really sad because the last 2 were Butter Pecan and some sort of caramel something or other that sounded divine. But I would have needed it to be accompanied by a vomit bag.

*Disclosure: Hudsonville Ice Cream has nothing to do with this post. In fact they are probably appalled by it. And in no way am I indicating their ice cream is barf inducing. Unless you eat 2 pounds of it. Which is not advised no matter who makes the ice cream.


  1. Too much ice cream…..blasphemy, especially if Ben and Jerry’s Creme Brulee is involved! :-)

  2. Oh yum! I was just reading about these new flavors. I can’t wait to try them.

    PS – Blue Moon is my ultimate FAVORITE from them!

    Hudsonville is the absolute best ice cream ever! In moderation, of course. ;)

    Yum! Sounds so good, love Hudsonville IceCream! I’m making a list for after Easter of things to try (gave up sweets for Lent) and the dark chocolate icecream, who knew there was such a thing?
