So currently in our freezer we have Dryer's Chocolate ice cream and Peppermint ice cream. We aren't normally ice cream pigs but it just so happened to be a buy one get one free deal, so we were forced to buy two cartons. :-P
Yay seasonal ice cream! (Source)
We kind of love all things minty and chocolatey. :-D
Now file that information away.
If you didn't know already, yesterday (Thurs) through Sunday is buy one get one free holiday drink at Starbucks between 2-5pm.
Holiday drinks include: Caramel Brulee Latte, Peppermint Mocha, Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha, Peppermint Hot Chocolate, Gingerbread Latte, Eggnog Latte, Caramel Brulee Frappuccino blended beverage, Peppermint Mocha Frappaccino blended beverage.
I went with some co-workers on Thursday and got my peppermint mocha. It's basically what I look forward to every year in terms of their holiday drinks (even though I know you can order them any time of the year).
And you should go get one (or two). Bring a friend. Treat a stranger/homeless/gas attendant. It is worth noting that this offer is not valid at all Starbucks. The one closest to work is attached to a Doubletree Hotel and they claim it is independently owned. Boo. (So we walked 3 blocks to the next closest one. haha)
Anyway. Retrieve stored information you just filed away.
Remember how we have chocolate and peppermint ice cream in our freezer? It just occurred to me sometime around 5:30pm today that... if we got some coffee ice cream...
... we could have PEPPERMINT MOCHA ICE CREAM.
Yeah see, I told you it was a genius idea. :-P I probably should have tried this out before proclaiming my geniusness but... I thought I'd share! :] Unless Dryers stumbles upon my blog and steals my idea... O_O
I was thinking we could currently mimic a peppermint hot chocolate maybe? Since we don't really need three cartons of ice cream. (My cousin would probably disagree with that statement.) But then I found out they have Dreyer's Hot Cocoa!
So using that plus the peppermint ice cream might be more legitly peppermint hot chocolate.
It's 11:45pm right now but I think I will go try chocolate and peppermint ice cream! :-D
