Being I’m from the GTA (Greater Toronto Area), I had never heard of or seen this wondrous, and I’m very sure – scrumptious creation!! I found out it was created at a place called Churro Borough in LA. So, unless some place here in Toronto makes this soon, my hubby and I will have to find this place one day, when we make our way over to LA!! Until then, I’m going to just leave this here, for all of us to enjoy virtually…
Yesterday all Dairy Queens, were giving out free small ice cream cones, as part of their 75th anniversary celebrations. So, my hubby and I grabbed one each for dessert, and paid the extra bit for chocolate dipping it…omnomnom!! Anyone else take advantage of the free cone yesterday??
We get these ‘Promo Packs’, at one of our local grocery stores, once in awhile. We love these, because they’re only $1.00. I’m all for cheap and yummy ice cream. We’ve also bought, the Smarties ice cream ‘Promo Pack’, which is another favourite…omnomnom.
Mmm…a small Peanut Butter Rolo Blizzard, for dessert!! Today is Miracle Treat Day, where proceeds support your local Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals. If you have the chance, grab any size blizzard, to help a great cause.
My hubby says we tried this McFlurry last year, but for the life of me, I don’t remember that LOL I’ll say this, it DOES taste like Cadbury Crème Egg flavoured ice cream, which is awesome!! If you like the chocolate, I’m sure you’ll like this McFlurry. Be warned though, it’s almost as sweet as the Cadbury Crème Eggs themselves, which is why we probably won’t have this flavour again…was just too sweet for us. Also, make sure you get the person behind the counter, to mix it REALLY well. The person at the location we bought it at, barely mixed it, and I had to mix it by hand some more before we shared it. Mind you that’s just a complaint against the employee, and not the McFlurry itself 🙂 I guess I’m just spoiled by how well DQ’s Blizzards are mixed together LOL This particular McFlurry is here for a limited time, and I wouldn’t expect it to be around, too far past Easter. So get it while you can!!
Hubby and I are at a Wendy’s near the car dealership today. Thought, we’d waste our time, sitting here instead. So we decided to get a Frosty. When I saw I could get one in a waffle cone – I was sold LOL A yummy way to pass the time, but at 300 calories a pop, it’s definitely a treat!!
My hubby and I went for a drive up to Jackson’s Point (north of us), last long weekend, where we picnicked and took in the beautiful scenery 🙂 For dessert we wanted ice cream, so we stopped at the Maple Leaf Dairy Bar Ice Cream Parlour!! Open since 1965, they have a large selection of ice cream flavours, as well as frozen yogurt made with fresh fruit. They even sell handmade butter tarts in a number of flavours too…omnomnom. BUT, we were only there for the ice cream this time!!
I opted to have a scoop of Mighty Moose (vanilla ice cream, with a ribbon of caramel and mini peanut butter cups!!), and a scoop of Maple Walnut on a waffle cone. I usually don’t get a waffle cone, but they were out of the regular, so who am I to say no 🙂 It cost about $5 for the double scoop, which is expensive to me, but MY GOD was it ever nummy!! How can you go wrong with mini peanut butter cups though right? A single scoop is about $3.25 or $3.75 (can’t remember!), which is a decent price considering other ice cream places charge the same or more. PLUS, they give you 2 scoops of the same flavour for that price, which makes up for it!! So, if you’re ever up in the Jackson’s Point area, and you’re craving ice cream – make sure you stop at the bright pink Maple Leaf Dairy Bar Ice Cream Parlour (946 Lake Drive, Jackson’s Point ON L0E 1L0)
