Mint Chip Icecream

In direct contrast to me, Aaron does not like Mint & Chocolate combined. This has advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantage is that, since I am such a nice person, I rarely buy treats with Mint Chocolate (the two major sacrifices being Mint Chip Icecream and Mint Oreos). The advantage is that in the rare instance these treats arrive in our house - They. Are. All. Mine.

Aaron bought me Mint-Chip Icecream on my birthday (I had suggested something with caramel and chocolate) ate approximately 3 tablespoons full and left the rest to me.

Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm.

However - lesson learned. When the temps outside are in the single digits perhaps some restraint should be used when eating icecream...brrrrr........

I'm with Aaron. Why would anyone ruin chocolate by putting mint in it? Sarah buys the mint chocolate chip ice cream because she knows I won't touch it. I thought Aaron was a "social" ice cream eater only anyway.

I'm reading this as we are having Trader Joe's Mint Chip ice cream for dessert - yum! (Our fire is roaring so we're good on the heat source.) Paradise = Peppermint ice cream (during the holidays?) and homemade hot fudge sauce. All of that = why my physique is the way it is! Oh well.. I'll die happy!

Mint chocolate ice cream is the best. The ice cream has to be green, not white though!

Belated happy birthday!

pay attention, this is probably the only time in my lifetime I will ever say this phrase...

I agree with Aaron.

Though I LOVE mint oreos, I think Mint Chip icecream is not as good as the others. Certainly nothing compared to Ben & Jerry's "Half Baked".

to help feed your addiction (we're mint & choc lovers too) tillamook (not sure if you can get it since it's out of oregon) has a delicious mint chocolate chip, and dryers has a limited edition thin mint (as in the girl scout cookies!!!!!!) ice cream. chocolate ice cream, thin mint pieces, yum! i buy it in bulk. happy late birthday.
