32 Flavors & Then Some

Okay, so now y’all have me craving some ice cream!!  According to the majority of comments, I really need to get on board with Mint Chocolate Chip.  I’ve never had it.  My husband insists on buying Cookies & Cream every dang time.  I’m a Great Divide {Blue Bell} kinda girl, myself. Plain & simple.  I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Cinnamon ice cream from Cold Stone.  HEAVEN.  One year, Blue Bell rolled out their Hot Chocolate ice cream and it was HEAVEN, too…marshmallows, chocolate shavings, fudge, caramel, chocolate…MY.WORD.  That was YEARS ago & they haven’t rolled it out since!!  I’m SAD!!  I wish they’d bring it back!  Speaking of Blue Bell, is it true that you can’t get Blue Bell up North or on the East & West Coast??  Was somebody lying to me or is that really true?!?!?  If it’s true, then I’m SO SAD for y’all that can’t get it…y’all are missin’ out!!!!! 
Anyway, here are the winners of my little Ice Cream Unit!!  Thanks for all the flavor suggestions, sweet friends!!

Also…I’ve had lots of blog design inquiries the last few weeks and I’m SO sad, but I’m not taking any new orders right now.  I’m still finishing up a few designs and life is just, well, BUSY!  However, my darling beyond darling best friend is in the blog design business and her designs are absolutely ADORABLE!!  Love her and love them!  If you’re interested in a blog makeover, check her out at Sole 17 Designs!  Her name is Tiffany and she’s the dang cutest thing.  Tell her I sent you and she’ll take care of you :)
We’ve got BIG things planned at school this week and I can’t wait to share our end-of-year fun with you all :)  Have a great week, friends!!! 


  1. I'm in Chicago and I LOVE Blue Bell!!!! Well I did before I had to give up real ice cream for lactose free ice cream.

  2. Love your Ice Cream Stations-will have to snag them up to go with my Ice Cream Unit! RoSchell


  3. Joining this ice cream discussion late, but I thought you should know that the Hot Chocolate ice cream you described sounds just like Ben & Jerry's Phish Food ice cream. It's chocolate ice cream with fish-shaped fudge pieces, marshmallow and caramel. It's my ABSOLUTE favorite ice cream EVER and since it's not a seasonal flavor, it's available all year long!! :)

  4. Thanks for the sweet shout out, BFFE!! You ARE the best!! xoxo

  5. I'm in Northeast Ohio, and we have Blue Bell! Thankfully! :) (The only thing I have to import from the South... from my mother-in-law... is KMS flat out straightening creme! Ha!


  6. We have Blue Bell here in the south! That stuff is the best!

  7. Never heard of Blue Bell. .. I'm in California.

  8. Ben and Jerry's Phish Food is my FAVE!!! Thank you so much for the precious Ice Cream unit... It was THE perfect last week of school unit!! I bought The Ice Cream King and also read Ice Cream:The Full Scoop by Gail Gibbons. It was the perfect non fiction addition! Thanks for your cuteness Cara!!! :)
