Baskin-Robbins Blues

And now for something not related to mood swings or writing. Tragedy has struck! One of my favorite free day treats during my last year's Body for Life challenge was Baskin-Robbins Peanut Butter 'n Chocolate ice cream. For someone like me who looovvvesss chocolate and looovvvesss peanut butter it is beyond divine.

Well as I mentioned a while back, I'm doing another BFL challenge this year--trying to keep it low key so I don't lose the writing focus--but still exercising and eating clean 6 days a week and having one day where I can kick back and eat up. Today was that day and Kara and I headed for Baskin-Robbins to take advantage. And...they didn't have it! No chocolate/peanut butter. I was crushed! Why would they do away with the best flavor ever?!

I just checked out the Baskin-Robbins web site and it appears that Chocolate/PB is a "permanent flavor", so I haven't lost all hope. Maybe my particular BR was just out of it temporarily.

I hope! I hope!

Have you ever had Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby ice cream?

Deee-vine.

No, but I checked it out and it looks delish.

My two reservations about it are 1) we don't have a Ben & Jerry's nearby, so I couldn't get just one scoop, I'd have to get a whole pint from the grocery store, which would be dangerous, and 2) it's not simply chocolate and peanut butter, which is what I loved about the B&R flavor--the purity. ;o)

But maybe someday I'll give it a try...

Aw man! I just went to the Ben & Jerry's web site and there *is* one not too far away. Next free day, I'm there!

Wow, it never occured to me to seek out the actual Ben & Jerry's for a scoop, rather than a pint ....
