How did I know I'd love it? Well, I might not have tried Ben & Jerry's version before, but I LOVE Coldstone's Cake Batter Ice Cream. I normally get it mixed with gummy bears and sometimes caramel. Do you remember about 3 years ago when they stopped making their cake batter ice cream? It seems they used to put traces raw eggs in it, and some people had contracted salmonella. So they recalled it. I would have taken the salmonella over never having cake batter ice cream again. Thankfully, they were able to alter the recipe to make it salmonella-safe.
But now of course B&J had their own version. My favorite ice cream flavor made by my favorite ice cream company, how could that go wrong? Unfortunately, for B&J, Coldstone still wins on the Cake Batter front. I think its because Ben & Jerry's mixed in some chocolate ice cream into the flavor. Not that I'm not a fan of chocolate. But having both the chocholate and cake batter taste made it so you couldn't really taste either one clearly. So my solution? Add more flavors and we'll all be happy. It won't really taste like cake batter anymore (its not like it did before), but it will still taste really good. Introducing Cake Batter Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream:

On a different note, Carissa at The Lovely Dove tagged me to take a picture of myself right now and post it. Here is what I look like at this moment
This is what I look like most every afternoon. I come home change out of my work clothes into sweats and a tank top. The shirt I'm wearing was originally the boy's but I have pretty much claimed is as my own, and wear it most always around the apartment.
And I almost forgot. I have to tag 3 people. So Sara, Anais, and Andrea, I want to see you right now!
P.S. Anyone else exciting for the Idol results show tonight? Its hard becuase everyone left is so good, but I'm going to say it will probably be Matt or Allison.
