To help me focus some of my writings I have a couple series that I work on from time to time. “Where I’m Staying” and “What I’m Cooking” is being joined by “My Favorite Things”. I was never a big fan of Oprah, but I did like her “Favorite Things” episode. I didn’t like all of her favorite things, but I usually found a little something that I wanted or just had to have. Now that Oprah is gone we are now stuck finding our own favorite things.
Even Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother got into the Favorite Things Game.
One of my favorite things is the combination of dark chocolate and sea salt. I could eat the Intense Dark Sea Salt Soiree for every meal for the rest of my life and be a very happy man.
A few weeks ago, MS arrived at my house with all the fixin’s for dinner (he has cooked almost every Sunday since my accident, how great, eh?). He has to have dessert — not “likes to have dessert”, but “HAS to have dessert”. He saw something new in the ice cream case and knew I’d enjoy it.
Enter Haagen-Dazs Limited Edition Ice Cream – Salted Caramel Truffle. This is a simple vanilla ice cream with ribbons of salted caramel with little chocolate truffles. I usually don’t like chunks of stuff in my ice cream, but this stuff is absolutely amazing. I have actually turned into a dessert guy now — I really love finishing off a meal with this very rich treat.
My two biggest concerns? One: I will eat so much of this I will get fat and the sugar will rot my teeth. Two: This limited edition of this ice cream won’t be around when I go to the store next. According to the website
this stuff is around until December. That means we have only 9 months of this wonderful little bucket of heaven is gone forever.
Have you all tried this yet? What about the other Limited Edition Haagen-Dazs flavors? Which ones should I try? We need to tell the good people at HG to make this a permanent resident of our grocers freezer.
