Before I get to the 5 summer Publix ice cream flavors I’ve gotta try, here are the 3 runner ups that aren’t so much for me… but you might like. I’m not an almonds fan so Coffee Almond Fudge will be a no for me. I’m not so much into pecans either so I’m going to pass on the Caramel Turtle Cheesecake. And my lack of love for nuts continues… I’m going to say “no thanks” to Hula Hula Macadamia.

Now, here are the 5 I’m going to be definitely looking for that BOGO on.

  • #5: Cold Brew Cookies and Crème

    This one doesn’t take me back to my childhood so much like the others do.  I didn’t become a coffee drinker until way late in life.  It started when I was a morning guy on the radio in California.  That caffeine kick was a necessity when I had to be up every morning at 5.  A mashup with chocolate sounds good to me.  Publix describes this one as “cold brew coffee flavored ice cream with crème filled chocolate cookie pieces throughout.”  So is it ok to eat this one first thing in the morning?  Asking for a fri… me, asking for me. Cold Brew Cookies and Crème

  • #4: Marry Me Strawberry

    I didn’t get a chance to get over to Plant City for the Florida Strawberry Festival this year.  So this will have to do.  Publix describes it as “strawberry flavored ice cream with ribbons of strawberry flavored sauce, studded with pieces of white chocolate flavored strawberry pecan bark.”  Now I mentioned I’m not a big pecans fan.  But I’ll still take this one for a spin for sure.

  • #3: Buckeyes & Fudge

    Any dessert with peanut butter and chocolate is an instant yes for me.  I’m Team Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups all the way.  This one isn’t affiliated with the candy, but it sounds like the ice cream equivalent to me.  Publix describes it as “peanut butter ice cream loaded with chocolatey covered peanut butter buckeye candies and swirls of thick fudge.”  I’m 100% in. Buckeyes & Fudge

  • #2: Chocolate Cookie Quarry

    The ice cream truck menu only needed one thing to make me happy as a kid.  Ice cream sandwiches.  As simple as they are, that’s what summer tastes like to me.  So I’m way into this one.  Publix describes it as “chocolate ice cream with decadent chocolate cookie crumb swirls and chunks of flavored chocolate sandwich cookies.”

  • #1: Lemon Berry Bliss

    You probably heard me talk about this one on the show today. This one’s got my name all over it. I love lemon flavored desserts. And being a kid from Maine, blueberries have always been a part of my life. Blueberry muffins, blueberry pancakes, I’ll even buy blueberry coffee when I see it. So to see these 2 flavors together? Psh. No brainer. I’m all in. Publix describes it as lemon crème flavored ice cream with lemonade flavored flakes and blueberry flavored swirls.
