Goodbye July. I couldn’t let National Ice Cream month come to an end without one last blurb on what’s new in the freezer, but I wanted something different from the Magnums and Daims that I’ve hoarded in the past few weeks, even if it meant posting a couple of days late. I’m glad I waited. How could Peanut Butter Love be anything other than peanut-o-licious? And how much more “comfort food” can gingerbread + ice cream get?
I haven’t yet tried the gingerbread sandwiches (the back of the box says that it’s perfect on a cold winter day with tea but I won’t wait that long) but I did tear into the PBL cone. Peanut butter ice cream with a soft caramel center, topped with chocolate and caramelized pecans. It’s good enough to like, but not enough to love when compared to Magnum’s double peanut butter. Honestly, Magnum should throw some coupons my way or something…
I wasn’t sure I’d be able to find the right frozen treat to end this hot, humid, energy-draining week, but Daim came to the rescue. Caramel ice cream with Daim nibs and caramel sauce in a cone. I can’t decide which is better – the Daim bar or the cone – but between cones, bars, and Magnum sandwiches, having all 3 in the freezer will get us through the weekend. TGIF!
Dachshund channeling Daim, Daim, give me some Daim.
I had to wikipedia what Daim (pronounced dime) is but don’t hold it against me if I get a little creative with the pronunciation. Daaahim! This ice cream bar is not bad at all! Not too sweet like the previous Toblerone bar and no toffee bits stuck in your teeth. I haven’t yet gotten into the Magnum Mini Infinity bars but I’m 100% sure that the rich chocolate ice cream in a deep chocolate coating with cocoa nibs will deliver on Magnum’s frozen dessert fame.
