Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ohhh, cold brew, @missjeanie?! Yuuuum!  😋  I like the sound of coffee float. I think I can squeeze that in here sometime today. Speaking of masks, I'm behind. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @missjeanie  My husband likes to make cold brew milkshakes and they are sooo good! He usually uses a mocha flavored cold brew, so it also tastes a little chocolatey too - sorta like a Frosty with coffee  😋 🍦🍫

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

ummmm... that sounds amazing @Shosh85 .  I need to get back into the states to start picking up 'keto' ice cream again... all this Haagen daas is killing my waist line.  Now I also want a shake.  dang it. Now I'm torn between a chocolate shake and brownie with ice cream sundae.  

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Why do you need to pick one @missjeanie@Shosh85 😂🤣😂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

lol... @itsfi @Shosh85 under normal circumstances I'd be the first one to roll up with both!  However... I've been sweets binging a lot lately.  I swear I actually craved a vegetable yesterday! I'm going to try to hold off now that I've finished the ice cream in the house... until the weekend.  5 days.  We'll see how the willpower holds out.  Chocolate mint ice cream has been added to my grocery cart online for shakes this coming weekend. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie @Shosh85 "Veg-gies! Veg-gies! Veg-gies!!!!" 

You got this, missjeanie! I have confidence in you!


Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  I think I'd go with the brownie sundae, because it's like two desserts in one. 😋 Milkshakes are definitely delicious, but there typically isn't a brownie waiting for you at the bottom. 😂

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

“Cold brew milkshakes” @Shosh85?! 😍 It’s almost 3am but that sounds really good right now. 😋 


I had ordered the coffee cream ice cream but they were out of it 😞 so I went with salted caramel (along with a pint of the brookies n’ cream - because if I’m heading out, I might as well pick up two flavors, right? 😂) Good reminder to see if they’ve made more coffee cream, and to see what the new flavor is for this month. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  There's never a bad time to eat ice cream!..... well that's my opinion anyway 😂

Ok, super important question - what is your least favorite ice cream flavor you've ever tried?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh, this is an excellent question @Shosh85! I have two - one is rum raisin.  

The other was this mushroom flavored ice cream I had years back. It was a nice, fancy dinner and, of course, dessert at the end of the meal, right?! Of course. There was this dessert that was described as something to the effect of a dessert forest made of fluffy hazelnut cake, some other treats that sounded good and mushroom ice cream. Molecular gastronomy was a growing trend at the time and was making its way to desserts so I assumed it would be some mushroom flavor infused with ice cream and that all the flavors would work harmoniously on the palate. I'm fairly adventurous when it comes to food so that was the dessert of choice. I will say this, the presentation was very artistic and whimsical. 😍 I can't recall now specifically how or why it tasted so bad; I just remember that after I put it into my mouth, I stopped and started looking around the table for a way to discreetly get it (and the taste of it) out of my mouth. The dinner napkins were too nice and I didn't have any tissues in my purse to take out. I actually wondered whether the pastry chef was playing around with another type of 'shrooms when making the dessert. 😬  


You? What's your least favorite ice cream flavor?

What's yours @missjeanie?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi @Shosh85 I have to say I've had several flavours (I was a pastry chef before moving into the exciting world of accounting about 7 or 8 years ago) but the ones I like the least now, are probably not what most consider the worst.  Lavender Ice Cream... not a favourite.  Kind of reminds me of having my mouth washed out with soap as a kid.  The other one that I'm not a fan of at all... bubblegum.  Why does everything need to be made into bubble gum flavour?  It just doesn't suit ice cream in my humble opinion.  

I don't think I've ever had anything like mushroom ice cream though.  I'd have ordered it too Fi, I mean... try it when it's there right?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

I remember bubblegum ice cream @missjeanie @Shosh85 ! The things I would eat as a child. Wow. I don't think the one I had tasted like bubble gum so much as it had bubble gumballs in it, which I would carefully pick out and then hoard. Hahaha!

Some things have changed - I don't eat bubble gum ice cream.

Some things don't change - I still hoard things ... lip balms nowadays. 😉🤣

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  @missjeanie  I'm not sure if I've ever had bubble gum flavored ice cream either, but I do remember getting bubblegum popsicles from the ice cream truck when I was little. I remember the ice cream with the gum balls in it too, but I don't recall what I did with the gum balls 😂


There's just too long a list of the things I hoard. Masks and lip balms are definitely at the tippy top of the list. 😄

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 @itsfi  The mask hoarding has been real here until this year. The whole no cross border shopping and stores being closed has been excellent for not buying as much lol! Always a silver lining! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yes @itsfi !!!  Those gum balls kind of crumbled when you tried to chew them when they were half frozen.  Why did we like those?  lol.  I'm right there with you on the lip balms.  I watched a declutter video this morning while getting ready and still wonder how they do it.  My balms are all staying right where they are.  Lost in a purse. lol

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi  Oh wow, mushroom?! I never knew something like that even existed! I haven't tried anything that unique! I think my least favorite flavors are the LE ones that come out for the holidays - I would say it's  probably a tie between egg nog and pumpkin. 🤢 I'm also not a fan of pistachio ice cream either. @missjeanie 



Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85 @itsfi I'm also now thinking of pistachio pudding. That jello brand kind that you just add milk to.  Reminds me of my childhood. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

There was such a thing as pistachio pudding?!!! 😬 I was not introduced to jello pudding until my late teenage years and it was chocolate, chocolate, and "may I have more chocolate pudding, please?!" Hahaha! @missjeanie @Shosh85 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi Oh yes, and it's very very green! Its got what I'd call a fake pistachio flavour to it, with little bits of nuts.  I'm sure it's quite a polarizing flavour, my brother hates it, I love it.  I always loved the pistachio and butterscotch. mmmm.... pudding.


If you see some while you're shopping you really should try it out.  I'm not promising any culinary revelations, but I feel like it's something you should try. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie  The only reason why I know what pistachio pudding tastes like is because my sisters and I have used it to make some fun Halloween treats/foods. 😃

I think my favorite flavor is banana 🍌 @itsfi 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@Shosh85  I haven’t had banana in decades! Lol looks like I’m going to be doing some pudding this weekend lol
