Have You Tried This Stuff?

Well, we did end up playing our softball game last night, but I still got to hang out with the birthday girl!


After the game was over (our first loss of the season, boo), some of the team and the fam hung out at the field for a bit…gosh, they sure are goofballs. Winking smile


Before leaving for the game I needed to fuel up with something quick for dinner, so I whipped up a quick sandwich.

A few slices of buffalo chicken deli meat, lettuce, tomato, avocado(!), and honey mustard on whole wheat bread.


The sandwich did a great job of holding me over throughout the game, but by the time I got home, I was ready for a little dessert.


I ended up caving in to a sale on Ben & Jerry’s pints this week and bought a flavor I’ve had my eye on for forever now: Cinnamon Buns.

YOU GUYS…have you tried this stuff?

Caramel ice cream with cinnamon bun dough & a cinnamon streusel swirl…aka, it’s unbelievable. I think it’s a good thing they only sell these things in pints. Just sayin’.


This morning I have a shift at the gym with a small break so I’m planning on stopping over for my usual Tuesday breakfast at Starbucks. This time, however, I won’t be hiding in the corner eating my breakfast out of a peanut butter jar. Winking smile

    Cinnamon buns? Must try this! I love that it is Ben & Jerry’s which means that the ingredients are fair trade! Yay!
    My new favourite flavour is maple syrup. Oh. My. Word. It is delicious. Locally made in Quebec which is home to some of the best sugar shacks.
    And now I want some.

    Just found your blog and I am loving it! It’s so cute and I love the whole concept ! I am your newest blog and twitter follower! And for the record, OMG I actually just want to faint with excitement that B&J has come up with such an amazing flavour! Sounds fantastic! Alas, B&J isn’t that big here in South Africa…but when I am travelling again I will be sure to look out for it! I love Strawberry Shortcake by Haagen-Dazs!

      I love coffee ice cream! One of my favorite local places makes their own coffee oreo ice cream and it is to die for!

    Cinnamon Buns is the first flavor of Ben & Jerry’s I ever tried. So, so good. If only treats like that were as healthy as a bowl of spinach, right?!
    My top three favorite ice cream flavors are pumpkin, cake batter, and cookies & cream!

    OMG that Cinnamon Buns ice cream is my vice!!! I LOVE it so much. I can’t have it in the house because I can suck down a pint of that stuff in no time! Butttt now that you got me thinking about it i may have to stop by the grocery store…

  6. says

    Oh wow that ice cream flavor sounds to die for! My favortie will always be B & J Choc Chip Cookie Dough followed closely by Cookies ‘N’ Cream…gah who am I kidding, I am a sucker for almost all ice cream flavors!

    Holy moly, cinnamon buns ice cream sounds de-FREAKIN-licious! I don’t know how the combination of my favorite pastry with ice cream couldn’t be good!?

    My favorite ice cream would have to be cheesecake with strawberries. The not-so-sweetness of the cheesecake paired with the semi-sweet, tart strawberries makes for the perfect combination :)

    I love ben and jerry’s Oatmeal Cookie Chunk! I was visting Boston last week and went to JP Licks and tried Peanut Butter Oreo and that may be my favorite flavor!

  9. says

    Usually mint chocolate chip, or anything with peanut butter, but that Ben & Jerry’s sounds awesome, can you believe it I have never had Ben & Jerry’s ice cream?! That might have to change this summer!

    The fact that you had on a sweeatshirt last night makes me insanely jealous! Its like a billion degrees here…ok more like 105 but still! Enjoy! :)

  11. says

    Loved the interview on Skinny Mom! I felt like you were divulging a little secret for the future. :) Can’t wait for that to happen!

  12. Laura says

    So after I read this post, I checked the Price Chopper flier online to get the scoop (haha) on the Ben and Jerry’s sale! Is this weird?!? lol.. I’ll be stopping by there on my way home from work since I have been craving REAL ice cream for weeks!

  13. says

    Ben & Jerry’s is downright dangerous!!! I have never met a flavor I do not love. During the holiday season they make a carrot cake flavored one and let me tell ya, there is NOTHING better than that!! I will embarrassingly admit to eating an entire pint by myself…..in one day!!

  14. says

    I have tried that Cinnamon Roll ice cream and it’s SO GOOD! It all depends on the brand of ice cream, It’s so hard for me to pick a favorite flavor. Right now I’m craving dark chocolate thin mint ice cream!

    You are so right about the cinnamon buns flavor! It’s awesome. I’ve only had it once and that was a couple years ago aka WAY TOO LONG OF A TIME!!

  16. says

    Anything with peanut butter and chocolate – Tillamook’s (local dairy in Oregon) peanut butter & chocolate usually takes the stop spot (espeically because my husband insists that we support local) but I’m also partial to Dryer’s Butterfinger and B&J’s Chubby Hubby.

    Pralines and Cream Haagen Dazs is dreamy. B&J’s flavour choice is pretty limited here :-( (Ireland). I would love to get my hands on some Cinnamon buns! Baked Alaska and Karamel Sutra are my current faves.

  18. says

    Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Therapy
    Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
    Cookie Dough
    Friendly’s Forbidden Chocolate
    Fudge Swirl


  1. […] It makes such a difference when softball games don’t consume our evenings. Last week was a tough one schedule-wise – 5 games in 4 days between the two of us – so that made it pretty difficult to plan much more than a sandwich for dinner…even though they’re still pretty tasty too. […]
