A Salted Caramel Cheat Day

Yesterday was my cheat day. Every other day I try to be good and eat my organic spinach and hummus and lentils and avoid all types of sugar. But on the seventh day, there is no piece of chocolate or slice of pizza that is safe. For example, I started the day with pumpkin pancakes and bacon and ended it with cheesy garlic knots.

A total and complete success.

However, I still hadn't had my weeks worth of desserts yet and I wasn't sure what sounded good. So as I was strolling the aisles of Target yesterday, I happened upon this:

And I knew right then that my world was complete.

SWEET. MERCY. This stuff is what ice cream should taste like, and it is especially good with a large spoon while you are standing over the kitchen sink. I am pretty sure you could drench an old shoe in salted caramel and it would taste amazing.

There is still quite a bit left so I hid it in my freezer so I won't see it taunting me all week. But if you get a chance and you are in desperate need of something absolutely delectable, run to your nearest grocery store and dive right in. You may even want to bring your own spoon so you can eat it in the parking lot. There is no shame when it comes to this ice cream.


  1. I should not know about this purple tub o goodness. Oh dear.

  2. Oh. My. Goodness. I'm not a big ice cream person, but, like you said, I'm a fan of pretty much anything that involves salted caramel!

  3. And to think I last saw you in the fruit and vegetable section in Target yesterday. Why oh why, did I let you get out of my sight? I should have followed you as I, on the other hand, walked out of Target with veggies, ground beef, bread, eggs, and yogurt (low-fat, nonetheless).

  4. Yes, all is right with the world with this. Yes, indeedy.

    I'm coming to raid your freezer. Get out the spoons.
