Congrats to #85, Heather, ice cream winner!
It’s hot here in Indiana. The other week, I took advantage of a free learning hike through a local marsh with my youngest daughter and a couple of neighbor kids. It sounded like a fun, educational experience, and it was.
However, after about 70 minutes of slogging through the hot sunshine with no shade, I had reached my limit on distinguishing redroot pigweed from curly dock, and learning about things like the compass plant.
On a day like that, my friend, I could have used some ice cream. Some Blue Bunny ice cream, to be specific.
I love Blue Bunny ice cream. Thanks to the generous folks there, we were able to sample some varieties I didn’t even know existed: Champs! Mini Swirls — these are cute little ice cream cones (about 4″) and they came in vanilla and birthday party varieties. Also, mini ice cream sandwiches, in both chocolate and vanilla. These cute little treats were just 140 and 100 calories respectively, and are made with low-fat ice cream. The perfect indulgence for a steaming hot Midwestern day, and the perfect way to make me a great mom on a humid July afternoon.
Check out the Blue Bunny website for coupons, information on all the varieties, and where to find them. If I have one complaint about Blue Bunny, that’s it: in this area at least, it’s only available at Wal-Mart. I don’t have any particular beef with Wal-Mart, but it’s not my preferred shopping spot. It’s only a mile down the road from Meijer and Kroger, but the people of Wal-Mart perception? It is real, people. It is real.
I know you’re just salivating over all this Blue Bunny goodness, so how would you like to win some Bunny Bucks to buy the package of your choice?
Yes, Blue Bunny is putting up this fabulous prize to one of my readers.
