Limited Edition

Do you get so excited when you go to the grocery store and they have a new ice cream flavor that sounds absolutely scrumptious? Then you notice the wording on the package: "Limited Edition" and you think: "Oh my, I better buy up everything they have here, 'cause they are only making so much of this stuff." (Oh by the way, most of the blog entries on my blog will involve comments revolving around food. Get used to it. I can tie almost any subject back to food. It's MY blog and that is my obsession and problem. Good thing I don't drink huh?)

Come on, you know you think this when you see that Dreyer's has their Girl Scouts Thin Mint ice cream out. I can not possibly be the only addict...okay, maybe I am. I honestly don't consume as much ice cream as I did growing up, but you may never know that from how much I talk about it.

Now I'm all about the advertiser letting me know that a good thing is only out there in a limited amount, but when I saw this at Costco I had to feel a little bit deceived.
Now, I do realize that Dreyer's chooses to only make so many quarts of that delicious ice cream, but really--are strawberries soon to be on the endangered fruit list? If they are, let me know, I'll freeze them up! Maybe this is why the Prophet is telling us to keep a year's supply. I always thought I'd see this on hamburger or bacon or some animal product...who knew the first casualty of our time would be the Strawberry?

Ah yes, I can totally relate to seeing the "Limited Edition" tag on ice cream. When I was out shopping today I saw it on the Dryer's peppermint, and pumpkin. I was extremly tempted to buy both of them and then I envisioned walking around with both of those babies strapped to my hips! Neither of them ended up in my cart, which was a total miracle!

Seriously your blog makes my mouth water some days. I was totally on a diet and then decided to eat ice cream. . . downhill from there :)

Note to self: Add french silk to grocery list!

limited edition strawberries...that is a trick! i'd better go out and get some because if they are not going to be around for much longer....:) i love ice cream...

"French silk" ice cream???? I guess that ice cream made out of recycled underwear could be somewhat of a limited edition. And I guess when strawberries are out of season, they could be considered limited edition too! That begs the question, if I write a short check is it a limited edition?

This is Derek's friend Heather from ML..

I saw the limited edition Pumkpin and Peppermint ice cream yesterday too! Although.. the pumpkin did manage to make it into my cart. oh well.. Audrey, you are SERIOUSLY a girl after my own heart.

Ice cream and chocolate... are there any other foods? If you have a costco nearby.. there are these mint truffles there that are TO DIE FOR. the brand is Dilettante Chocolates.. and they come in a big plastic carton.. there are tons of them for $9.95. There was also a scale they were selling at our costco.. I accidentally stepped on it.. and I wouldn't recommend doing that :)
