You can tell the holidays are really here when the Dreyer's Ice Cream specialty flavors start to appear in your grocer's freezer. I got excited at the word peppermint on the first carton I spied with my little eye last night while grocery shopping.
Then my heart raced when I noticed the egg nog flavor right next to it. But wait, something's wrong. Where's the Reason For The Season? We're already past Halloween and less than a week from Thanksgiving. Where's the Dreyer's Pumpkin Ice Cream?
Oh, whew, okay. My bad. it's over here in the adjacent aisle. I'll just pick some up now and get on home....uh-oh. This can't be. That's not my beloved pumpkin ice cream - it just looks exactly like it. But this is something called Swiss Orange. And it's not even ice cream! Ohmigod! It's sherbet!! What is this, Mexico?
I feel a strongly worded letter coming on unless that freezer looks very different on my next visit. Count on it.
