Pillsbury Kemp's ice cream bars

1+1=2: Pillsbury wanted to extend its reach (beyond refrig pie crusts biscuits dinner rolls frozen pancakes waffles toaster strudels cookie dough breadsticks etc.) and Kemp wanted to establish a presence outside its hometown Minneapolis. In January, the duo intro’d co-branded ice creams. Now, a line of novelties: choc chip cookie dough bar, cookiewich (like an ice cream sandwich), and ice cream brownie bar, a layer of brownie glued next to a rectangle of ice cream. Frozen novelty confections are said to be the big growth area in ice cream. These looked good, but one bar = 370 calories.

points to the pillsbury/kemp publicist for sending this great jpeg in about 10 seconds flat

oh, TG, I had high hopes for an N+1 joke [http://www.nplusonemag.com] embedded in that first link. Still, you don't disappoint... Tho I think you're being too kind to that publicist. BTW, where'd you get that amazing Reese's photo? Geez.

TS, you tease me. reese pic was taken at NYCE HQ, on the fleecy pillow belonging to Ball The Haughty Siamese. (same backdrop as for this coffee kit kat pic, which i'm proud to say has already been "borrowed" by other blogs).

meanwhile, am marveling at your new, more forthcoming home page, w/ the doors opened a tiny crack...

By the way, I picked up a box of these last night. Yes, the calories are high, but the texture of the brownie was really wonderful. I think they're trying for a Dove bar experience.
