Blue Bell Ice Crack

Standard

There are plenty of tasty things out there that I can eat just a little bit of be satisfied. (I can’t think of any right now, but I’m sure there’s something.) There is one thing however, that I have decided is one of those things that I simply canNOT have in my house any longer.  It’s just too good and I can’t stop myself from loving it again and again and again.

It’s Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream.  This stuff is like crack. In fact, I checked the ingredient list and the first 5 ingredients are milk, sugar, crack, heroin, and meth. I mean how’s a girl supposed to fight that?  Especially when her Lady Time is coming up?

Even though it pains me to say it, I have to bid Adieu to this sweet, creamy, vanilla-y, cracky goodness. It’s just not a good situation for either of us, so it’s best we  part now on amicable terms.

Fare thee well, my sweet. Fare thee well.

  1. I have ice cream twice a year.

    The first time is at the grade school spring music concert. It is a big event and at the end, they serve the small cups of vanilla with the pull off lid and the wooden paddle spoons.My family will tell you I am wiggling in my seat for the whole concert in anticipation of that cup. The wooden paddle is my favorite part. My youngest will be starting her last year in that school this fall. So one more spring concert and then we are done. (Not sure ice cream cup is worth sitting through all those beginning violins and clarinets. so don’t think I will be attending any concerts after she is graduated)

    The second time is a small rootbeer float at some point over the summer. Rootbeer floats were a MAJOR issue (I would get stuck on them, one a day, then two a day, then three a day, etc) in my old ways. I can do one a summer now, but that is a recent thing. The first several years of my process I had to totally avoid them.

    To be honest, I am a big fan of lowfat plain yogurt and walnuts and eat them every day. Sometimes I put fruit in them. Sometimes I have lf plain greek, and that really tastes like ice cream to me now. Taste buds have changed.

    • Vickie I love those little wooden paddles too!!! 🙂 I also eat a lot of plain yogurt with fruit and a little drizzle of honey and that to me, is a treat. I’ve never really been a huge ice cream fan, but this ice cream for some reason has me hooked. I think like Debby said, I just need to get completely off sugar and go through the DTs and get it over with!

  2. We bought Breyer’s Natural Vanilla ice cream and caramel-butterscotch sauce to go with it a couple of days ago. Light, floating feeling gone. Tight, bloating feeling instead. I was just thinking, too, that I can’t have that in the house. As much as I’m trying adopt the intuitive eating thing, the aforementioned slips through the cracks.

    But it’s sooooo good.

  3. I think there is a support group for ice cream addicts. I can’t keep it in my house but will occasionally go out for a kiddie size treat. Stay off the crack!
