Van Leeuwen New Summer Flavors Are Available in Rochester, Minnesota

Honey dripping isolated on white

I was today years old when I heard someone going on and on about how excited they were to try the new Honey Cornbread with Strawberry Jam ice cream at Walmart. I did a double-take...excuse me, not sorry for interrupting, but did you say Honey Cornbread with Strawberry Jam ice cream?

She did. And she wasn't sorry I interrupted either.

"You HAVE to try Van Leeuwen ice cream, it's so good! Well, except the Mac and Cheese flavor, but everything else is so good."

Turns Out Van Leeuwen Has FIVE New Flavors Out.

Each pint'll set you back about $5.00 (if you buy just one...does anyone do that with ice cream?) and they're available at Walmarts in Minnesota and across the nation. Even Iowa and Wisconsin.

1) Honey Cornbread with Strawberry Jam French Ice Cream

This one sounds like a simple equation. Honey is good, cornbread is good, strawberries are good, and jam made with strawberries is good.

2) Grey Poupon with Salted Pretzels French Ice Cream

You read that right, they're mixing the fancy French mustard with salted pretzels. All of THE WORLD knows sweet + salty is the best thing since laughing babies, but paired with white wine flavored mustard?

3) Campfire S’mores French Ice Cream French Ice Cream

I don't want to shock you, but I'm only iffy on the S'mores. I like about one out of 3, which yes, means I have to have six every time its S'mores time. I'm not ashamed...I found the workaround.

4) Summer Peach Crisp French Ice Cream

Peach crisp? Yes. Also, apple crisp, apple rhubarb crisp, strawberry rhubarb crispt. Add "crisp" to it and even a morel would taste...better (momentarily, until you realize you're eating something resembling brains or snakes).

5) Espresso Fior di Latte Chip French Ice Cream

They use actual cold brew coffee (probably doesn't melt the ice cream so fast as hot coffee). They also use cinnamon, molasses, vanilla bean, and sea salt, so I'm going to be guessing this is pretty tasty! Also, Google says Espresso Fior di Latte Chip translates to Fior di Latte Chip espresso. You're a lotta help there, Googs.

Online some people call their ice cream "complex" while others call it "confusing." I've never tried it, but let me know with the link below if you've had any of these new flavors!

As always, if you have a comment, complaint, or concern about something I wrote here, please let me know:
