Starbucks Ice Cream Giveaway

While I am a huge Starbucks addict, I can take or leave ice cream. Reeeaaallllyyyy good ice cream I crave, but nothing short of Breyers or Ben and Jerry's will satisfy.

I was excited, though, to see the Starbucks line of ice cream in my grocery's freezer section. If it's anything as good as the coffee, it was at least worth trying.

Oh. My. Word. That stuff is about forty nineteen levels of delicious. I started with the Caramel Macchiato and moved on to the Mocha Frappuccino. Both are equally delicious and I couldn't pick a favorite if I had to. How to describe it? The fact that cream is the first ingredient should be a major clue as to how rich the stuff is. It's so creamy, and good and packed full of authentic Starbucks flavor that it's like eating dessert. Well, I guess ice cream technically would fall under that category anyway, but it's one of the finer desserts, like cheesecake or custard.

One of the things that I love most about the Starbucks line of ice cream is that because it's so rich and flavorful, you only need a tiny bit to satisfy your craving. This makes it last sooo much longer, and keeps you from overeating. See how thoughtful the makers are - thinking of your health like that?

There are currently four flavors of this incredible goodness on the freezer shelves at the grocer. Besides the Caramel Macchiato and Mocha Frappuccino, there is also Java Chip Frappuccino and Coffee. I'm sure that you already have a favorite in mind.

BUY YOUR OWN!! You can purchase this delectable dessert at a grocery store near you. In the freezer section, of course. If you go to the StarbucksIceCream.com website, you can sign up for a $1.00 off coupon. Sweet.

WIN YOUR OWN!! I have generously been given six (yes, six!) coupons for a free pint of Starbucks ice cream (aka, heaven in our freezer). A half dozen lucky readers will be named as winners in a drawing next week. To enter, please leave a comment telling me what flavor you're going to try first.

Winners will be announced Wednesday, August 19. Good luck!

  8. Boo I'm guessing this draw is only open to the US as they don't sell Sbux ice cream in Canada.

    But I too would go with Caramel Machhiato because everyone knows it tastes better iced than hot!
