Drumstick Unveils New Ice Cream Bar Coated In Cookie Crumbs

It’s hard to improve upon the classics, but that’s exactly what Nestle is doing this spring with the release of their Crushed It! Ice Cream Bars.

Pivoting from the usual faux-Oreo crumb crust that dominates the ice cream bar game, the new bar’s coating features cookies that have been ground into a fine powder. Because of this, the bar has a unique melt-in-your-mouth sensory element uniquely different from Cookies ‘N’ Cream bar’s usual crunchy shell. 

The bars will be available in two flavors: vanilla fudge, which features vanilla ice cream with streaks of chocolate, and Cookies ‘N’ Cream. Both flavors have a component, a gooeyness from the fudge and the crunch from the Cookies ‘N’ Cream, that give the treat some depth beyond the new shell. 

In an economy as expansive as that of the ice cream bar, innovations aren’t necessarily rare. A new ice cream bar pops up in the freezer aisle as commonly as new tweets come on the timeline. Seeing as most of their sole innovations are to slap the face of whatever Marvel superhero has a new movie out on a vanilla flavored bar, an ice cream bar that tries to play both flavor and senses is distinctive. So, it could have some legs to stay around for a longer than most variations of classic flavors.

Crushed It! Ice Cream Bars will be available nationwide, rolling out into supermarkets everywhere between now and April for the price of $3.99.

Childhood Favorite Nutter Butter Cookies Just Got A Major Upgrade

Photo: Target.com

Nutter Butter sandwich cookies are now covered in delicious chocolate fudge and we are super excited!

Just when we thought treats for peanut butter lovers couldn’t get any better, we heard about Fudge Covered Nutter Butter Cookies. YUM!

Peanut Butter AND Chocolate?

The rumors are true! PB and chocolate are two of our favorite things. Nutter Butters have remained consistently amazing over the years, with two soft and crumbly peanut-shaped cookies sandwiching a creamy peanut butter filling. Why would anyone want to make changes to something so amazing?

Well, if it means dunking a round version of an extraordinarily tasty PB cookies in chocolate fudge, count us in!

We haven’t had a chance to try them for ourselves just yet (we’re on the hunt!), Instagram’s @CandyHunting was lucky enough to find a box and says that they taste similar to a Girl Scout Tagalong cookie with a little extra crunch.

Where You Can Find Them

So far, there have been limited sightings of Fudge Covered Nutter Butters, and the new Fudge Covered Oreos at Stop and Shop, Target and Giant Eagle. If you can wait for them to be shipped, Fudge Covered Nutter Butters are also available on the Target website for $2.99.

Be right back; we have some cookies to buy!

Baskin-Robbins Threw Halloween Candy On This Dessert Pizza

halloween-polar-pizza

It seems like Baskin-Robbins hired a bunch of kids to create their newest dessert pizza and maybe that’s not a bad thing at all.

The ice cream franchise is releasing a Halloween Polar Pizza for the holidays that’s just stacked with Halloween candy.

Baskin Robbins’ spooky new dessert features a double fudge brownie crust that’s topped with candy corn, M&Ms Minis, and a generous drizzle of fudge.

With all the love or hate that candy corn gets, we’re curious how this dessert will resonate with with consumers.

The pizza will be available at participating Baskin-Robbins locations through the month of October. We’re actually pretty stoked to try it, though we’ll probably have to find a Groupon for a dentist immediately after.

Fun is fun, but cavities are no joke.

McDonald’s Singapore Has Chocolate-Covered Ham and Cheese Hotcakes

McD-Singapore-Breakfast

Taking the breakfast game to another level, McDonald’s Singapore is offering a new dish to their menu that is not only pretty sweet, but savory as well. They’re calling them Hearty Hotcakes. The hotcakes are stacked with chicken ham and a slice of American cheese. Note: look up chicken ham.

For an additional cost of 50 cents Singapore (40 cents US), Customers can add their choice of strawberry syrup or hot fudge as well. Not sure if the heart and sun patterns come default with the breakfast additions or if customers will be able to freestyle their own patterns. Syrup and butter is still free, however.

Those who may think that meat and cheese on top of sweet hotcakes are just gross, just think of it as a deconstructed McGriddle.

What 24 Pizzas From The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon Look Like IRL

shitty-pizza-drop

As a kid, I loved watching the ’90s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. Who didn’t? One of the things that stuck was all the ridiculous pizzas Michelangelo and his brothers would order throughout the series. As the years passed, I started to think some of those pizzas could actually be pretty delicious if done right. Though it did take a solid 22 years for anchovies to grow on me.

Like his Renaissance namesake, who would have thought Mikey was ahead of his time. Using some hunger-fueled imagination I recreated 24 of the most disgusting pizza orders from the TV show and turned them into something you could order at a restaurant. Cowabunga.

__________

Tuna fish, peanut butter and grape jelly

IMG_8163

Tuna ahi poke on top of a bed of seaweed salad and drizzled some hot, melted peanut butter and grape jelly on top. Went more for color than taste. Ending up tasting great so that worked itself out.

IMG_8145

__________

Peanut butter and clams

IMG_8709

Drenched the pizza in a cajun peanut butter sauce with four fresh calms. The heat from the sauce really made the clams, no pun intended, pop. Crawfish for garnish.

IMG_8721

__________

Peanut butter, avocado and extra pickles

IMG_8704

A bed of guacamole topped with avocado slices, melted peanut butter and some sweet dill pickle chips. This is actually a sandwich I make on many an occasion.

IMG_8687

__________

Marshmallow and pepperoni

IMG_7194

Pepperoni and cheese pizza topped with roasted marshmallows. The marshmallows look like haunting little lifeboats on a sea of pepperoni.

IMG_7188

__________

Marshmallow and asparagus

IMG_8877

Asparagus and cheese baked directly into the crust and topped with toasted mini marshmallows. Had to many different versions of this one before I settled on this. Couldn’t be happier.

IMG_8889

__________

Guacamole and Marshmallow

IMG_8663

A generous heap of freshly made guacamole and topped with a single marshmallow lit on fire. Kids, don’t try this at home. Grownups, go nuts.

IMG_8640

__________

Butterscotch, onions and anchovies

IMG_8479

Onion and anchovies caramelized in brown sugar and a butterscotch sauce. Tasted great but stunk up my kitchen like nobody’s business. Do turtles have nostrils?

IMG_8484

__________

Tea and toast

IMG_8866

A buttered slice of toast on top of tomato sauce and sprinkled with tea leaves, parmesan cheese and more tomato sauce. The original concept for this had chunks of toast drenched in tea. NOT. APPETIZING.

IMG_8864

__________

Chocolate sprinkles and clam sauce

IMG_8284

A cheese pizza made with a hearty clam sauce and chocolate sprinkles and garnished with green onions. Not easy to make clam sauce pop on a pizza. Had to tweak it into a chowder. Master Splinter would be proud.

IMG_8250

__________

Chocolate-chip

IMG_8898

Chocolate chips baked into the pizza and drenched with a generous amount of hot fudge. It’s essentially a cookie.

IMG_8928

__________

Chocolate fudge with extra garlic

IMG_8617

A generous amount of fried garlic on top of a pool of melted chocolate fudge. Definitely not something you’d order on a first date, but then again, are any of these pizzas?

IMG_8621

__________

Chocolate fudge, sardine, chili pepper, whipped cream

IMG_8825

A cheese and whipped cream pizza topped with shaved chocolate fudge and red chili flakes. Served with a fried sardine filet in chocolate fudge sauce. Any nutrients that piece of sardine contains is neutralized by that mountain of whipped cream. I guarantee it.

IMG_8835

__________

Anchovies and hot fudge

IMG_8548

Hot chocolate fudge drizzled over anchovy filets on a sauceless white pizza. Until the day anchovies turn into giant mutated fish that eat people, they’ll forever be my favorite fish.

IMG_8562

__________

Pepperoni and hot fudge

IMG_8219

A classic pepperoni and cheese pizza drizzled with a little chocolate fudge. Just a little. We’re not animals.

IMG_8225

___________

Pepperoni and pickles

IMG_8297

Cheese and pepperoni pizza with sweet dill pickle chips. The pickles add a crunch that can be heard all through the New York sewer systems.

IMG_8293

__________

Jelly bean and sausage

IMG_8514

A spicy pork chorizo and sour cream pizza topped with queso fresco and fresh cilantro and served with a jalapeño jellybean gastrique. The jelly beans had us stumped but luckily Reddit came to the rescue.

IMG_8533

__________

Salami pizza with double yogurt

IMG_8371

Two servings of vanilla yogurt topped with fresh salami slices and drizzled with blackberry jelly. If you can get over the idea of salami and yogurt, it goes down pretty tastily.

IMG_8388

__________

Shredded coconut and sweet pickles

IMG_8358

Pizza is topped with shredded coconut, drizzled with hot mustard and topped with sweet pickle chips. Shredder would be a crazy handy guy to have in this situation.

IMG_8357

__________

Strawberry with anchovy sauce

IMG_8781

Caramelized strawberries served with an anchovy butter sauce and topped with whipped cream. This one was the most difficult to come up with. Thankfully, whipped cream saved the day.

IMG_8782

__________

Hot oatmeal

IMG_8308

Hot, buttery oatmeal topped with brown sugar, honey and fresh strawberries. It’s another side to breakfast pizza.

IMG_8314

__________

Popcorn

IMG_6678

Truffle oil popcorn with parsley flakes and parmesan cheese. There’s a pizza somewhere under that mountain of popcorn.

IMG_6662

__________

Anchovies and banana

IMG_6656

Caramelized rum bananas and anchovy filets. The pizza that inspired this post. The bananas and anchovies were the perfect balance of sweet and salty.

IMG_6651

 

__________

Goulash

IMG_8598

Hot goulash served with crumbles of queso fresco. After a quick Google search of what exactly goulash was, it was pretty easy to make.

IMG_8595

__________

Granola and licorice 

IMG_8422

Vanilla yogurt topped with granola and shaved red licorice. It was a bitch to hand shred licorice, but doesn’t it look pretty?

Ben & Jerry’s New Ice Cream Has Two Flavors Per Pint and A Solid Core of Peanut Butter Fudge

bjcore

UK, you’ve been holding out on us. Earlier this week, Ben & Jerry’s announced a new line of “Core”-branded ice creams, each featuring a solid, well, core of fudge, caramel, or jam. Anyway, turns out these things have been available in the UK since 2012, which makes us wonder: why keep such a brilliant creation so hush-hush? We mean, it’s not like we’ve stolen any cool British stuff before . . . (*ahem, ahem*)

Each pint in the line features two halves of flavors separated by the topping core. The four new flavors are: Hazed & Confused, chocolate and hazelnut with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core; That’s My Jam: raspberry and chocolate with a raspberry core; Peanut Butter Fudge, chocolate and peanut butter with a peanut butter fudge core; and Salted Caramel, sweet cream with blonde brownies and a salted caramel core.

In other words, the perfect ice cream sundae in a pint, and now in your grocery’s frozen aisle.

What a Mouthful: Triple Layer Fudgy Mint Oreo Brownies

Anything with the phrase “triple layer” has me hooked. Triple layer cake: done deal. Triple layer chip dip: yes please. Triple layer ice cream sundae: see you in a week, guys. So it comes as no surprise that this Triple Layer Fudgy Mint Oreo Brownies recipe from Averie Cooks had me running to my kitchen to see if I had all the necessary ingredients (below).

Luckily, this decadent dessert doesn’t require triple the steps. The base is all about Cool Mint Oreo Cookies, the frosty, festive stepsister to your basic Oreo. Crumble those, along with a swirl of minty marshmallow mixture (marshmallow fluff, peppermint extract, green food coloring) into basic brownie batter.

While that’s bakin’, make the all-important middle layer by melting white chocolate chips, buttercream frosting, and more minty marshmallow mixture. Refrain from eating straight outta the bowl.

And the top layer is just another heaping handful of crumbled Cool Mint Oreos. For detailed instructions (and some majorly mouth-watering photos), click here.

YUM.
