Dippin’ Dots Cereal Is A Nostalgic Treat That You Can Now Have For Breakfast

I remember those middle school days where I would hang out at the mall, catch a movie with some friends, and buy a cup of Dippin’ Dots ice cream while I wait for someone to pick me up. You don’t see Dippin’ Dots around too much these days, outside of vending machines and fairs, and that kind of breaks my heart.

Luckily, fans of the dessert now have something to look forward to.

General Mills just announced a partnership with Dippin’ Dots to create a breakfast cereal based around the mini beads of ice cream.

Dippin’ Dots cereal comes in two options: Cookies ‘n Cream and Banana Split, arguably two of the brand’s most popular ice cream flavors.

The ice cream brand was founded in 1988 and utilized cryogenic technology to create those innovative pellets of sweet delight. While the new cereal doesn’t actually have ice cream (think about the mess that’d leave in the cereal aisle), it does capture the essence of the dessert in breakfast form.

Dippin’ Dots cereal will be available nationwide exclusively at Walmart stores. Just remember, look for them in the cereal aisle, not the freezer aisle. I wonder how this might pair on top of a bowl of regular Dippin’ Dots ice cream?

Watch The Food Surgeon Flex Supreme Precision On This Banana Split Procedure

When we see hot fudge sundaes get made, they’re typically in settings where families with kids can pile on the toppings in a chaotic tower of banana and chocolate. However, chaotic is the complete opposite of the latest Food Surgeon video.

Probably known best for implanting a Kit Kat inside a 3 Musketeers Bar, the food doctor has a unique style you’d find watching an actual surgery. With all the loud personalities we see interacting with food on a daily basis, his videos are a refreshing change of pace.

Watch as he carefully performs a bisection on a banana with a steady hand, adds hot fudge, peanuts, and other ingredients you’d find on an ice cream sundae.



Someone Created A Huge CADBURY CREME EGG Ice Cream Bowl [WATCH]

Cadbury Creme Eggs are awesome, even when it’s no where near Easter time.

Instagram foodie Tym Bussanich recreated his own massive version of a Cadbury Creme Egg at home to be used as the serving bowl for an equally daunting Banana Split Ice Cream Sundae.

The details are scarce, but the pictures and video below should be enough to get your creative juices flowing:

It’s the middle of the afternoon on a Friday, and my sweet tooth is calling. And it didn’t help that I ran into this post from Bakers Royale. No crazy recipe, just simple directions. Yes, there is real ice cream under that maraschino cherry and whipped cream. And yes, those are rainbow sprinkles.

Tastykake Reveals Banana Split Baked Pies


Following a low-key press release via their Facebook page, Tastykake fans everywhere are now privy to the launch of the brand’s latest product: Banana Split Baked Pies. The new limited edition addition to Tastykake’s growing menu of items is coupled with an interesting Facebook initiative that asks you to upload a photo of your Tastykake product with ice cream for the chance at winning a case of the new pies (contest live through 5pm on May 20).

It’s interesting to note that in February of this year, the Tastykake brand was facing some rather serious financial troubles. It’s uplifting to see them continuously putting out new products and pushing forward, a hopeful sign of positive things to come from the cult favorite packaged-confectionary group.


Banana Split On A Stick

Check out this on the go food. Beautiful? Yes. Delicious? Yes. Way more awesomer (I do know that is not a real word) than a normal banana split? I think so! (Thx Instructables)

Banana bread, vanilla ice cream, actual banana, chocolate sauce dripping down the side of the structure with some whipped cream on top to seal the deal. If this doesn’t sound like a lunch for dessert, I don’t know what does. Or, a dessert for lunch. Either way. Either way. (PicThx Insanewiches)
