The little moments in life are so worth celebrating, aren’t they? Well, it’s National Ice Cream Month (For real! Who knew!?) and the folks at Edy’s wanted us to try the new their Limited Edition ice cream flavors. So we decided we’d have a Sunday sundae party just for fun. We invited my parents and broke out some Edy’s ice cream flavors.
If you haven’t seen the four Edy’s Limited Edition flavors yet, run – don’t walk – to the store and grab some! What better way to celebrate National Ice Cream Month?
Check out the flavors:
- Take the Cake: Yellow cake-flavored ice cream with a frosting swirl and sprinkles (Sprinkles IN the ice cream…. Genius.)
- German Chocolate Cake Spectacular: Chocolate ice cream with a caramel coconut swirl and brownie pieces (Hello, German chocolate cake exploded into an ice cream container.)
- Sunny Salted Caramel Pretzel: Vanilla ice cream with a salted caramel swirl and pretzel pieces (Salted caramel. ‘Nuf said, eh?)
- 3 Stripes You’re Out: Vanilla ice cream with blueberry and strawberry swirls (Sounds simple but just you wait.)
I love that three of these flavors are available as Edy’s Slow Churned Ice Cream. That means all the creamy taste of regular ice cream but with half the fat and 1/3 fewer calories than regular ice cream (which totally means extra scoops, right??).
We liked all the flavors we tried, but the 3 Stripes You’re Out was definitely the favorite flavor. In fact, I may have liked it so much that I went back for just one more spoonful.
Hey, I didn’t double dip so that’s totally legal. Just don’t tell on me, m’kay?
