ice cream

As a thank you for those of you who’ve stuck by Yummery and my sporadic posting over the past year I have a special holiday treat to giveaway. Actually I have 10 treats! The super sweet folks who produce the Edy’s/Dreyer’s brand of amazing ice cream have generously sent 10 free coupons (5 of each brand) for any of their 1.5 quart products. FREE ICE CREAM!

This means you could be very shortly savoring a dish of festive Egg Nog, Cookie Dough, Rocky Road, Peanut Butter Cup or even Hot Cocoa which just happens to be my new personal favorite. The little marshmallows in the rich chocolate ice cream are simply heavenly, but really the skies the limit! You can choose whatever you find in your grocer’s freezer section.

To enter the contest please leave a comment on this post letting me know if your area carries Edy’s (which is how this ice cream is branded east of The Rockies) or Dreyer’s (which appears west of The Rockies). If you aren’t sure visit: http://icecream.com/

You can also receive up to two additional entries in the contest (for a total of three chances) if you become a fan of Yummery on Facebook, tweet about the contest, or simply add Yummery to your favorite RSS reader. Don’t forget to leave additional comments on this post alerting me to each action. By the way, if you already subscribe to Yummery in some manner just let me know that in your comment(s).

All winners will be selected via the nifty random number generator on Friday, December 10th at 8:00 PM EST, and then I’ll promptly arrange to have the coupons mailed to your home. Best of luck!

Personalized Ice Cream BowlWhat?! You don’t have your very own personalized ice cream bowl?! What’s wrong with you? Thanks to my mom I’ve had mine for years and years. You’re completely missing out! Ben & Jerry’s never tasted so good. Plus, since the bowl has your name and likeness on it you don’t have to share anything that you put in it. This means that pint of Cookie Dough Ice Cream is all yours.

Don’t worry. This special bowl isn’t just for girls. They have a male version as well, and while you can’t change the clothing that your ice cream avatar will sport you can select hair color and skin tone. The only draw back? They take a little while to create and ship. Make sure you order by December 2 if you want to receive this dish in time for the holidays.

Edy's / Dreyer's Pumpkin Ice CreamI’m not much for pie, unless it’s pumpkin. And then I’m a total freak about it. So when I tell you Edy’s/Dreyer’s Slow Churned Pumpkin ice cream (with 50% less fat and 30% fewer calories than regular ice cream ) might be better than the real thing, it’s serious. Love at first bite, the flavor of this beautiful, orange-hued ice cream was exactly as I imagined; it was like some test kitchen genius mashed up a creamy, richly-spiced slice of pumpkin pie, threw in a generous dollop of whipped cream for good measure, and then transformed it all into a scrumptious, cool concoction. I scream, you scream. This fall, we can all scream for pumpkin pie ice cream … but only for a limited time. When the falling leaves disappear, so does this flavor. Available through November, look for Edy’s/Dreyer’s Slow Churned Pumpkin in your grocer’s frozen dairy case. Note: This ice cream is branded as “Dreyer’s” west of The Rockies and as “Edy’s” east of The Rockies.
