I Scream!!!



For ice cream, that is. The lovely and talented Farida at Farida's Azerbaijani Cookbook has passed along the gift of cool, creamy, and delicious Haagen Dazs Ice Cream to some lucky people. I was one of them! Woohoo!

What a fun package to receive...there are four pints of ice cream, and a box of vanilla bars coated with chocolate and almonds, all packed nicely with dry ice. There's no way that ice cream is going to melt--they're like pints of brick, hehe.

So guess what??? I get to pass on three more special packages of dry ice and ice cream to three lucky readers (that are in the US--I'm sorry that they don't ship internationally)! And let me just tell you, it's almost as much fun to put the dry ice in the sink and watch it make fog as it is to eat the ice cream. What? Who is that laughing? I have kids, cut me some slack, wouldya? I...ahem...they thought it was really cool. ;)

So I guess to make this quick--because I only have ten days to forward the winning e mail addresses to Haggen Dazs, I'll number each comment in order, and drop the names in a hat. I will then have my very unbiased 5 year old son pull three numbers out. Yeah, that'll work.

I think all the packages contain the same flavors, and wait till you taste them!

There's Fleur de Sel Caramel--Fleur de Sel caramels covered in chocolate blended into caramel ice cream with caramel ribbons and French sea salt accents.

Pomegranate Chip--Tart Pomegranate and sweet cranberries with grapes, with dark chocolate chunks.

Are you drooling yet?


Vanilla Honey Bee Ice Cream--combines vanilla from Madagascar with clover honey from North and South Dakota, to increase awareness of the disappearing honey bee problem. This one will help fund research to protect them, which is hugely important. Do you have any idea how many things honey bees pollinate? Tons! They also include a packet of Black Eyed Susan seeds for you to plant to attract honey bees to your garden.

Vanilla Honey & Granola Frozen Yogurt--with just 4 grams of fat per 1/2 cup serving. Nice!

And lastly, Snack Size Ice Cream Bars--vanilla ice cream covered in chocolate and almonds.
I didn't take a pic of those, but you all know what an ice cream bar looks like, right?

We did a taste test this evening, and we all loved each and every one of them. Everyone had their own favorite, but we sure as heck wouldn't say no to a little bowl of any of them.

So please leave your comments if you want to enter, and make sure you're using a valid e mail address. I'll take entries until Friday night (May 2nd) at 9:00 pm EST. Then all the comments will be numbered in order, put in a hat, and three will picked by my 5 year old.

Good luck, and thanks for reading! :)

April in CT said...

Holy crap..I just fainted reading that post!

Once you go Haagen Dazs you never go back and I beat myself up for waiting so long to try it. Caramel cone..be still my beating heart..it's one of my favorites so that caramel listed in the give away looks divine.

Donna said...

Dawn said...

Yummy! That looks delicious, but not as good as your muffins!

Kenzie said...

Mmm . . . I am hungry for ice cream now! Probably not a good choice for breakfast though.

Jen said...

OMG I want some ice cream! I am in love with Haagen Daz Sticky Toffee Pudding...all that ice cream looks amazing.

Grace said...

well this is a no-brainer. good heavens, that pomegranate chip has my name all over it. interestingly, i don't think i've ever had an ice cream involving grapes in any way, shape, or form, but i'm definitely intrigued.

Ben said...

I got a box of ice cream, too and it was all gone in like 2 days. The flavors were just delicious.

I want some more now! Hehe

farida said...

Elle, I am so happy you are enjoying the ice cream! Isn't it cool to receive it in the mail!! Oh, since I already got my ice cream portion, I don't want my name in the hat:)) Just wanted to say hello! Oh, please, post the picture of you 5 year old when he draws out the lucky name! It would be fun to see the process:))

Sharon said...

SC said...

I hope someplace in my little town will be selling these flavors, but I doubt it.

AP said...

these flavors rival my favorite from the small-town shop I go to over the summer! (It's called "Swamp" and is crushed malt balls, oreos, caramel and m&ms in vanilla ice cream). I guess this is a more refined version of delicious!

Victoria said...

Those ice cream flavors sound divine! I'm drooling over the pomegranate chip...
