This summer has been uncommonly hot and dry in Utah. Granted, Utah is a desert. But this summer it feels like someone sucked all of the moisture out of the air and then lit the whole state on fire. Literally.
I usually enjoy summer. But with all of the heat and smoke this year, I really wish it was winter. First of all, it would be a lot cooler. And secondly, winter = Christmas = presents.
To help us cool down my family and I have been using the heat as an excuse to eat as much Unilever ice cream and frozen treats as humanly possible.
My girls current favorite are Jolly Rancher Popsicles.
Kik describes them as layers of color and tastiness, that she can't get enough of.
My husband is in LOVE with the new Good Humor York Peppermint Patty Bars. He won't let me try one, but tells me that they are "an extra creamy frozen peppermint patty accented with dark chocolate." He says that if you took a circus peanut and took away all the graininess so it just melts in your mouth, and then added smooth mint ice cream, you would have a York Peppermint Patty Bar.
I have a couple of favorites. For a classic ice cream fix, I really like the new Breyers Chocolate
REESE’S. This new variety features chunks of REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cup pieces and REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cup swirl in chocolate frozen dairy dessert.
Occasionally I need something a bit smaller and more portable that I can "sneak" eat. I know its bad, but sometimes I just don't want my kids to know I'm eating ice cream because then they won't want to eat dinner, (or breakfast, or lunch). My favorite go to quick eat are Klondike Bars - especially the Rocky Road. I'm usually just a strict chocolate girl, but you can't go wrong adding creamy marshmallows.
As much as I love all of the above, my absolute favorite are the new Double Chocolate Magnum Ice Cream Bars. The Magnum bars are rich chocolate syrup sandwiched in between 2 creamy chocolate shells, with chocolate ice cream in middle.
All I can really say is Mmmm. If you love chocolate you need to try these.
To Buy - Ice cream is the perfect way to beat the heat and experience a little Christmas in July. Find them and more Unilever frozen treats at a store near you!
