Chips Ahoy Fudge Bites

That's right. While on my ice cream shopping trip, I found this new limited edition of Chips Ahoy! They're so cute - like thumbprint chocolate chip cookies filled with fudge. So if you're in need of a sugar rush, these might be the perfect solution.

Try them! They're good!!

Ben & Jerry's Key Lime Pie

I went shopping for ice cream again last night, and I found the flavor that my sister has been wanting for the past week - Key Lime Pie from our friends Ben & Jerry.

Since we haven't tasted it before, I figured that I should get her other favorite - Key Lime Graham Cracker from Ciao Bella. You know, just for taste tests. :)

Results will be in shortly...I'm guessing...

Dolcissimo Cupcakes

The cupcake craze continues...

I thought that all these Southern Cali cupcake shops would be located in the big cities and their fancy suburbs - you know, Los Angeles...Orange County... I had forgotten about San Bernardino. Yes, there is a cupcake Chino Hills. That's where I stumbled across Dolcissimo.

It's such a cute shop - bigger than Sprinkles or Dots, and probably about the size of Yummy Cupcakes in Burbank - with a display similar to Sprinkles. And they sell cupcakes, mini cheesecakes, mini pies, cookies, and cannolis. Talk about a comprehensive sugar fix!

I tried their Cloud 9 - a blue vanilla frosting on a vanilla cupcake - and was reminded of Magnolia's cupcakes in New York! So if you're in the area, give them a try. Just be careful when you get their banana cupcake. Make sure that you take it out of the box to store, or all your cupcakes might absorb the banana essence.

Vio from Coca-Cola

I don't drink soda, but new products always catch my attention. Coca-Cola is releasing a new drink that should help you drink more milk - Vio. It's skim milk, carbonated water, and flavorings.

Sound weird to you? It does to me. If you taste it, let me know how that goes!

Favorite Punctuation Mark

Mine is the interrobang. I actually didn't even know it existed until about a week ago.

What is it, you ask?! It's a combination of the exclamation point and question mark. With all of the shocking news that we see these days, it should be everyone's favorite punctuation mark, right?!

Anyhow, even though it exists, it's nearly impossible to use since almost NO keyboards have it. Don't feel bad for me though, as I am completely satisfied using the two components separately as I have for years. :)

Chewing Ice is Bad!

You already knew that, right? I did, and it didn't stop me. I've been eating snowcones and I ALWAYS chew the ice. Guess what happened? I found out from my dentist on Monday morning that I had cracked and lost a filling without even knowing it. Now I have to get the filling replaced. :(

Of course, this could have been completely not chewing ice!!! I hope you learn a lesson from my mistake.
