I love peppermint bark. Usually every Christmas season I buy a tin of it and eat it until I am sick.

This year, Häagen-Dazs has decided they want my peppermint bark dollars. Either that, or they want to see me get fat, because they have a limited edition peppermint bark ice cream.

celebrate the season with our rendition of this holiday classic. rich white chocolate ice cream is blended with crunchy dark and white chocolate peppermint bark and peppermint candy pieces.

Apparently this has been available since September, but I only found it quite by accident last night. It's ridiculously tasty. I had to force myself not to eat the whole pint at once.

I know. I just did a blog post about food. It was that, or write about how it's been snowing in Portland since about 10 o'clock this morning, which when you think about it is at least equally mundane. It's cold enough that my electric heaters turned themselves on just a little bit ago, so the apartment smells of burnt dust, taking care of whatever has settled in there since they were last turned on sometime last winter.

Oh, you're evil. I'm going to have to get some of that, and I have absolutely no compunction about eating a whole pint at once, so you will be to blame when I'm laying on the floor whining that I'm going to die.
Just so you know.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

I had some of that deliciousness a couple of weeks ago and it has been a genuine struggle to not go into a store and buy some. So, so, so damn good.

That looks....SO GOOD! I love ice cream, especially in the winter!

Ha! I just killed my yearly tin of peppermint bark from Williams-Sonoma. I don't buy stuff from there ordinarily, but they've got the best peppermint bark.
