Taste Testing

That's what we've been doing on weekends. OK sometimes even mid-week.

What are we testing?

Ice cream — especially chocolate peanut butter. Peanut butter and chocolate are healthy choices, aren't they? (If not, don't spoil our illusion delusion.) 


Here's our #1 choice (so far). . .



We also tried this brand . . .



which we rated . . . 
  
Why ice cream sampling? If you think it's just to enjoy it, you're partly right. The tasting was part of a competition — REALLY

Our local "Y"  hosted a Family Summer Challenge. The goal was for a family/couples to participate in 3 activities  for 4 weeks with required photo submission. YES, eating ice cream was one of the activities — along with beach walks, game night, watching fireworks, star gazing, fishing, playing softball or baseball, picnicking, swimming, exercising, crabbing/clamming, bowling, gardening, cookouts, car washing. NO, we didn't just enjoy ice cream for 4 weeks. The added "reward" was a free T-shirt after successful completion. We should have ours shortly — these challenges are how we get gym wear.

Now that sounds like a fun activity. I will have to try some of that Turkey Hill.

BaskinRobbins has a good one, but I haven't found many more

It sounds like a creative fun summer time activity. The kind of ice cream is a good choice.

We love Turkey Hill IC at this house. And, many of our bunch love chocolate peanut butter as well. I prefer anything with a vanilla base and fruit in it...peach, strawberry, yum, yum!!

Enjoy the last days of summer!

I love peanut butter and I love chocolate but I do not like them together. Odd isn't it? But the ice cream tasting sounds like a valuable activity.

How fun! All those activities are perfect. Too bad I never hear anything like that over here, especially the ice cream eating part :-)

Have a great day!

Up here we've got a company that takes candy bars and breaks them up into ice cream. Among the flavours is Reese peanut butter cups.

Good heavens! Dorothy, I forgot all about the ice cream and checked out your photo! How fantastic to see my friends...What a great looking pair you two are! I see a bit of silver in Pat's hair..not a one in yours. You both look so young. Sweet, kind faces both of you. Now...what was this about ice cream tasting? You say you are sending me some ice cream you want me to taste for you? For the world?? Why of course! I am an expert ice cream taster and my bum shows it!!
Big hugs to you both.

Where do I sign up for THAT job? Sounds great. I just have to get Lee onboard.

Daisy said...

What a neat challenge! Sounds like fun. Thanks for the ice cream review too! :) Yes, I agree that peanut butter and chocolate are healthy choices.

That's a challenge I could get into! Interestingly, we get neither of those brands of ice cream here.
