Dreyer's Gingerbread Man

Ice cream cos. are in the throes of releasing their holiday flavors – most commonly peppmint, pumpkin, & eggnog – but Dreyer’s has one that’s sorta novel: Gingerbread Man, cinnamon ice cream w/ brown sugar swirl & ginger cookie pieces. Too bad Dreyer's ice cream is so bleh. This flavor has been out a couplo yrs but wasn’t as widespread as the others. Speaking of not widespread, Starbucks has a new MAPLE Latte but heavens to murgatroid, it’s only available in new England and Canada

It sounds like a spicy version of the Oreo-cookie-and-cream style ice cream.

A salmon latte would hit the spot.

look twisted, enough already w/ the goddamned salmon. yes yes you live in the pac NW. but salmon should be salmon, not soda, not latte. we've about had our fill of the salmon. not another WORD about the salmon

I have an adorable little purse shaped like a gingerbread man, if you can imagine that. And get this: I bought it in Paris! :)

Speaking of Gingerbread, has anyone tried the gingerbread latte at Starbucks? Last time I was there, I asked the guy behind the counter what it tasted like...he said "Gingerbread". Duh!

I had high hopes for that thing (the gingerbread latte) but found it to be pretty funky. I do like their gingerbread biscotti, however

We put salmon in everything over here. It's a trash fish. Just like lobster is in Maine.

My kids would never have a gingerbread purse. In fact, they know who controls the purse strings in the family. I keep them in their place. Those Hiltons are nothing but trash.

WHAT THE HELL DID YOU THINK A GINGERBREAD LATTE WOULD TASTE LIKE?

bk's blog, explain to ms.ery that it isn't just cuz of the FLAG that they'd market a maple latte to canada

SNAGGLEPUSS IS NO PURPLE TELETUBBY, BUT HE AIN'T CHOPPED SALMON EITHER.

I like this a great deal. I just got this and their pumpkin and both are good, not great, but good.

Oh and I prefer the pumpkin latte to the gingerbread.

WTF Ms.ery? Quick, someobody get her a Gingerbread latte!

 
At November 21, 2005 8:13 AM, Blogger Scott Roche said...

I know what makes this ice cream less than great. It is too sweet. Gingerbread is not overly sweet and the ice cream part of this is. It's a great cinnamon hit but it could back off on the sugar.

Is that so, Captain?

 
At November 21, 2005 9:21 AM, Blogger Scott Roche said...

Indeed.

i don't want to usurp the captain's "last"-ness but i'm pleased to read what appears to be an actual first-hand report
