New Zealand Natural Chocolate Ecstasy Ice Cream

nznicecream.jpgWhile browsing the ice cream section of my local supermarket recently, the attractive blue label and lid of New Zealand Natural ice cream caught my eye. The name is not just a marketing ploy; the ice cream really is made in New Zealand. New Zealand to California is an awfully long way to ship ice cream and is undoubtedly one of the reasons it was the most expensive pint on the shelf. Still, I donít think Iíve ever eaten anything from New Zealand, so I splurged and paid the high price. The label promised ďdelicious chocolate flavored ice cream with a river of rich chocolate fudge.Ē The chocolate ice cream tasted good, but really wasnít anything special and wasnít as rich and creamy as other premium ice creams I have eaten. And the rivers in New Zealand must be pretty small because by my measure, the so-called ďriverĒ of fudge wasnít even a creek. At best, it was a brook of fudge. I was left disappointed by the ice cream because it didnít taste as good as many other brands that cost less. From now on, Iím sticking with domestic ice cream.

Taco Bell XXL Chalupa

xxlchalupa.jpgIíll get right to the point: The Taco Bell XXL Chalupa is probably my favorite Taco Bell item ever. Loads of ground beef in a delicious, double-wide Chalupa shell. Thereís some other stuff on it too but you wonít even notice because the meat and Chalupa shell are so tasty. Buy one now!

Phoood rating: Outstanding!
