Get Local Artisanal Ice Cream on JetBlue Mint Flights!

JetBlue mint

I’ve only heard great things about JetBlue Mint service. Maybe one day I’ll have the opportunity to give it a try. The only problem is that it can be pricey when flying with a family of 4!

For those of you that get to fly JetBlue Mint, you can now expect “a locally curated ice cream program” according to a press release. This definitely sounds interesting to me! Continue reading Get Local Artisanal Ice Cream on JetBlue Mint Flights!

Trying Out the Most Unique Idaho Potato in Boise

During my trip to Boise, Idaho with Lucas earlier this summer, we had a fun time checking out various sites around the city.

We also tried some of Boise’s culinary highlights. One of the fun things we did was start off our trip by trying to conquer Big Jud’s 1lb Burger. (Find out how we did in my post.)

To finish our visit, we decided to head over to the Westside Drive-In to try what might just be the most unique Idaho potato! Continue reading Trying Out the Most Unique Idaho Potato in Boise

NYC Getting Ice Cream Museum for a Limited Time

Ample Hills- Gowanus Location

In New York City we’re lucky to be able to find food from pretty much every country in the world. (One man is even trying to eat authentic cuisine from every country in the world in NYC.)

Besides eating great food, it’s also fun at times to learn about specific kinds of food in museums. A French museum about wine was recently set to open.

I’ve also visited various food museums around the world like: Continue reading NYC Getting Ice Cream Museum for a Limited Time

A Visit to the Magnum Ice Cream Bar NYC

Magnum Ice Cream Bar

I recently wrote about how you could design your own Magnum ice cream bar at a NYC pop-up.

While designing your own ice cream bar isn’t cheap ($7 for one bar), I still felt it would be a fun thing to do in NYC, especially for a 4.5 year old!

Kim, Lucas and I had to run a few errands in the city so we decided to pay the Magnum Ice Cream Bar pop-up a visit! Continue reading A Visit to the Magnum Ice Cream Bar NYC

Design Your Own Magnum Ice Cream Bar at NYC Pop-Up

Magnum Ice Cream bar

I’m always looking for fun things to do close to home and just came across something that’s been going on for a few months now.

In NYC, there are lots of fun and interesting food experiences out there. We have a bunch of excellent food halls, markets and you can dine on just about any kind of cuisine. Some of these options can even be a bit odd and/ or unique… (Kellogg’s recently opened a cereal restaurant in Times Square.)

I’ve enjoyed a Magnum Ice Cream bar many times during our travels but haven’t really seen them for sale at home. Continue reading Design Your Own Magnum Ice Cream Bar at NYC Pop-Up

Best Ice Cream Shops In America

Minnesota- Summer 2013

I-scream, you-scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Are you crazy for ice cream? If so, this list of Best Ice Cream Shops in America from Thrillist might help you find some tasty places to try out.

When I saw the title of the article, I had to check it out. Lucas has always liked ice cream but his love for it went to a new level during our trip to Japan (late June/ early July 2013). Shops in Japan are slick and have a great way of letting you know that ice cream is for sale. Most shops that sell ice cream leave giant, fake cones outside or hanging from the building to let you know they sell the frozen treat.

Years Back, I Found Some Vanilla In Germany

Last week I wrote a post about Lucas liking Vanilla. I started thinking some more about Vanilla and it reminded me of something that I saw on my trip to Germany years back.

My brother and I went to Germany and had a great time in Munich and Cologne. We tried out lots of great beers in massive beer halls and visited lots of amazing sites.

While thinking about Vanilla I was reminded of a really bizarre building that we had came across in Cologne. The building had an upside down vanilla ice cream cone on the roof!
