With ice cream, the Caramilk secret is a bit easier to figure out.

I know what you're thinking. "A summer-y ice cream post just before Halloween? Oh, no you di-int!"

I agree. This week should be filled with Halloween posts, but I promise I there is a connection between Halloween and this ice cream. Preparing for our Halloween party this weekend, Suz and I had to make some room in the fridge, and the freezer, for all kinds of num-nums.

The treats will be people num-nums, not birdie num-nums. And I certainly hope there won't be as many diasters at our party as experienced by poor Peter Sellers in one of my favourite movies, The Party.

Anyhoo, "making room" consisted of the consumption of the last of the Caramilk ice cream, thus creating some valuable freezer-real estate for bags of ice. I had no problem with this task, as eating ice cream is one of my favourite pasttimes.

This ice cream, like the others I've tested, is part of the Breyers family of special ice creams. As you can see from the pic above, the actual ice cream doesn't even come close to looking like the photo on the 1.89 litre carton. Still, looks aren't as important as taste.

And the taste is superb. If you like Caramel, you'll like this ice cream. "Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream with Soft Caramel and Cadbury Milk Chocolate Swirls" is their claim, and I'll have to agree with them. The swirls may not be well-defined visually, but the caramel flavour reigns supreme.

It's a little more difficult to detect a chocolate flavour, but you'll never really notice, what with the super-sweet caramel flavour covering your taste buds. However, you will notice the mass quantities of tiny crunchy bits of Cadbury chocolate swimming throughout the yummy vanilla ice cream.

This is one of those rare times that an ice cream lives up to its name almost 100%. Two Martini-thumbs up to Breyers for their delicious accord with Cadbury. This ice cream is so good, it shouldn't have sat in our freezer until Halloween.

I've heard that as well, and so I agree with your doctor. When I crave stuff, it's usually potatoes. I rarely have a craving for sugary treats, but that might be because I eat so much ice cream!

Maybe it's not the ice cream giving you the chills! Maybe you have a *gulp* haunted computer creating unexplained cold spots in your room!

After working at Carvel for 2 summers I can no longer eat icecream without disastrous results.
