Just in time for Wedding Season...

From the Bryan/College Station, TX "Eagle" newspaper: Blue Bell Creameries of Brenham has introduced a new ice cream flavor just in time for summer weddings: Groom's Cake. Groom's Cake is a chocolate ice cream with chocolate cake pieces and chocolate coated strawberry hearts, surrounded by swirls of strawberry sauce and chocolate icing. "The inspiration for this flavor came from an actual groom's cake I tasted at a family friend's wedding," said Brenda Valera, director of research and development at Blue Bell. "It was so delicious, a chocolate cake with chocolate icing, a strawberry filling and chocolate coated strawberries on top. The flavors were perfect for an ice cream. "

Let me just tell you that Brenda, knows a good thing when she tastes it! I stopped by the grocery store on the way home from work today, to pick up garlic bread and milk. I thought "oh, I will get some bacon and cook Darren some bacon this weekend, with his biscuits" and the bacon just happens to be right across from the ice cream. (Lucky me). So, I stroll over there because they have these sale signs everywhere and I heard angels singing. Seriously. They led me straight to this new ice cream. And of course, because we love ice cream but hardly ever eat it, I picked up THREE half gallons. I'm not kidding. They were on sale! How could I not? I mean they are normally $6 something a piece and they had them on sale for 3 for $10. Then I get home and realize that we still have a half gallon on homemade vanilla, that I bought for my sister's birthday (in March), that I forgot to get out of the freezer, so it is still sitting there - unopened! So, to prove that this ice cream wouldn't go to waste - I stood there, in front of the freezer, spoon in hand, door hanging open and sampled my new treasure and again with the angels! I do have to admit that it is heaven. It might be my new favorite - give it a try - you'll love it (but I can't promise that your butt will)! :)
