Hey you! Don't eat that, eat this!

Every year, around late September or early October, pumpkin season starts. When I was a kid, there wasn't much pumpkin flavored foods... pie and bread were really about it.
Then at some point a few years back, somebody realized that pumpkin is a flavor that can be used for all sorts of wacky treats! This blog is primarily about those pumpkin items.
Typically, if it's pumpkin flavored, I will try it. If it has pumpkin in the name, there is a strong chance I will try it. The weirder, the more fun.
In order for this to not be a September - December only blog, I'll also highlight other weird foods (typically prepackaged, mass produced stuff) as well. There will also be a healthy dose of beer reviews.

Ben & Jerry's Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

So, Mrs. Pumpkinboy and I are at Six Flags for a thing put together by her work. And after deciding after 2 rides that I just don't like being thrown violently around anymore, it turned into a wander around the park trip.

Her company gave us a bunch of "Daffy Dollars" or whatever the hell they were so we went looking for junk to buy. We unloaded most of them at the M&M store on stuff for the niece and nephew and still had about $5 left. There was a Ben & Jerry's store right across the walkway so I figured, let's see if they gots any pumpkin.

B&J put out a Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream in pints every year (which I have had but need to get posted) but at the shop (or is that "shoppe") they had a more traditional Pumpkin Pie. Since it was Six Flags, $5 only got me a tiny cup that the spoon barely fit in, but whatever. That was some damn tasty ice cream.

Not nearly as rich as the cheescake, this stuff was just what you'd want in an ice cream... smooth and creamy with a healthy pumpkin pie flavor. If you've got a Scoop Shop anywhere near you, it's worth a visit.
