Blue Bunny Ice cream

I just discovered this stuff last month, and I must say it is very good, at least the two flavors I've become addicted to.

Cherry Chocolate Amaretto Bordeax is so very good.

Coconut Macaroon Crunch - alas it was a new flavor and it is now gone.

I have never been so crazy about ice cream before, and will certainly miss the second one, hope it comes back next summer.

I was wondering why this past month my WW weigh ins didn't change!

Well today I just got two containers of the Chocolate Cherry, but my spoon isn't going in for another week. Plus I have to remember a little taste is all I need.

So back to some WW one point bars for a while.

  1. Hooray for Blue Bunny! Their headquarters are not too far from here, in Lemars, Iowa. Don't fear, the coconut macaroon will come back. That's one of Mike's favorites. Many, many good flavors.

    AND they make these wonderful "Drumstick" style sundae cone things. "Champ" they're called, chocolate lovers. Chocolate ice cream in chocolate cone with dark chocolate and crushed chocolate cookies. O, my.

      Those chocolate champ cones are addictive! And they actually taste like chocolate ;) (sort of a surprise to me, coming from a grocery store item...)

      The chocolate chip ice cream is a winner as well with good sized dark chocolate chips and rich ice cream. Those are the only things we've tried so far, but I'll keep an eye out for the other suggestions on this thread.

    2. Blue Bunny is awesome. I'm hooked on the Homemade Turtle Sundae. Also, they have THE best light mint chip ice cream I've ever had. Strong mint, no artificial sweetener odd taste, and good dark chocolate chips.

        Oh I picked up one of those Turtle ones in the personal size just to try, but I haven't yet. I'm afraid to find another flavor!

        I did start back on the tredmill so I 'll have to start putting down the spoon after some small tasting.

        I e-mailed them to ask about the Coconut one, they sent me a nice letter and a couple of coupons.

        Of course I joined their I scream team to be contacted about new flavors.

          Blue Bunny's light and sugar free flavors are actually really good. I wouldn't go for the chocolate frozen yogurt, though. I had it once and it was grainy and pretty fake tasting.

      2. Randomly their little yogurt cups are phenomenal, too. No corn syrup! Hooray for Iowa. (although some have splenda, but I'm actually into splenda). Yoplait makes me sad. I want to like them bc they are just down the street from me, but seriously.. why so much corn syrup in yogurt?

        Blue Bunny's yogurt cups come in such fun varieties as Black Currant, Pomegranite Blueberry, and I even picked up one w.Lingonberries. Their Banana's Foster was amazing, but they don't make it anymore (at least not distributed to MSP anymore).

          I've been in love with their apple spice yogurt since I was a kid. Try the vanilla pear, too, if you can find it.

        2. Yep..Blue Bunny is really sister in NJ told me about their Peanut Butter Cup flavor and it is so delicious...not easy to find here in SW Florida, though.

          1. I love their plain vanilla - with tons of vanilla bean specks, really good. this summer I was addicted to their Tropical Fruit bars. My favorite - coconut.
