Allow me to introduce you to my lover on the side (well maybe my second lover. Roomba and I are still going strong.)
This is Dreyer’s new Slow Churned Rich and Creamy Mint Cookie Crunch ice cream:
Mint Cookie Crunch and I have had a thing going on for a while. It started with a seemingly-harmless glance down the frozen foods aisle. I was immediately drawn to the 2 for $5.00 price sticker. As I slowly stepped closer, our eyes met. I stood still, letting my mind carry me away to the taste of sweetness, cool mint, deep chocolate Oreo cookies. In the next few minutes, I had a choice to make. Did I walk away in a moment of strength, or did I dare admit that I was overcome with lust and do the unthinkable?
I asked Mint Cookie Crunch to come home with me.
But it’s more than just a cheap date. Our little fling has since turned serious. We meet up every night, and we can’t get enough of each other. In the moments we’re together, all pretense of self-control and what one should or shouldn’t do simply dissipates. Those moments are complete and utter bliss.
Each time we part, it gets harder and harder to say goodbye. The future is uncertain. Marketing- and sales-driven decisions may impact our time together. For now, I embrace this love, and I will do anything in my power to ensure that we never have to be apart. I love you, Mint Cookie Crunch. We were meant to be together forever.
If Dreyer’s is not sold where you live, I deeply feel for you. You have no idea what you are missing. Maybe that is a good thing. If you ever do have the chance to try this ice cream, particularly this flavor, please do so. I promise you will not regret it.
P.S. – I was not paid to make any of the above statements. Although now that I think about it, I should be.
