Blue Bunny Ice Cream Treats Review and Giveaway CLOSED

You know, I consider myself somewhat of an ice cream expert.  I've put in a lot of hours of research! Well, maybe not so much research as taste testing.  Did you know that there is actually a guy who gets paid to taste test ice cream all day? I saw it on Discovery channel.  Why oh why didn't my high school guidance counselor tell me about THAT career path!?!?

So I'm not a professional ice cream taster, I do mostly ProBono work.  It's tough but someone has to, right?  So when Blue Bunny sent me some of their new ice cream treats to try, I rounded up my ice cream interns (my kids, of course) and we did some indepth study.  Actually what we did was try to consume all the ice cream before it melted because our power was out.  Luckily it came back on and no ice cream treats were needlessly lost!

But man oh man, Blue Bunny, gets 2 big thumbs up from me!  I LOVE soft serve ice cream (yea yea I like ANY ice cream) and I am a big fan of soft served dipped in flavors.  But we just don't get it that often because my ice cream study time is usually after we're home and settled for an evening.  But Blue Bunny has seriously perfected the at home soft serve treat.  I LOVE the vanilla in chocolate Mini Swirls!  They ARE mini! Consider there are TEN in a box but they are the perfect size for kids and if I am able to control myself they help me with portion control.  But I may have been able to eat two or three without a problem.  The kids loved the Birthday Party variety and they were super cute but they were a little messy (darn those sprinkles) and a little sweet for me with the vanilla coating AND sprinkles.

And then there's the Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches.  They are the perfect size for little ones but every bit as tastey as full sized.  I NEVER buy Ice Cream Sandwiches even though I LOVE them because they are sooo messy.  But these smaller sizes make them much less messy because they don't have the time to melt so much.
My kids are in heaven with these new discoveries.  And I was surprised to find out that several of my friends had already become fans of these treats too.  Now the only challenge for me is deciding which great Blue Bunny Ice Cream Novelties to pick up.  Check out their website and see all the varities they have, its mind blowing!  They even find it easy to find the type of treat you want by listing them by type (As a Bar - No Stick, In a Cone, In a Sandwich, On a Stick, With a Spoon) or by flavor, or even dietary restrictions (Fat-Free, No Sugar Added, Dairy-Free, Nut Allergen-Free, Kosher).
I think my next pick might be Mint Grasshopper Ice Cream Sandwiches but shhhh don't tell the kids, cuz I'm not sharing!!
