KitKat Ice Cream?

While in London I was walking around the park and stopped at one of these small convenience stores in the park for ice cream. It was 4 degrees outside and Is till had the urge for ice cream, it tastes good and feels good, I didn’t care that it was cold outside. I wasn’t sure what to take, I wanted that vanilla with a flake sticking out but they didn’t have the machine and I saw the KitKat ice cream which intrigued me. I took a small bite off the top and then tasted the ice cream, it was really good and I ended up finishing it up in seconds. I wasn’t expecting a Kit Kat Cone!

Cravings

Sweets

Over the last week I have gotten ridiculous urges to eat things, and items I don’t usually care about. I have been wanting cake, a lot of cake, triple chocolate layer cake from Candies in Shuweikh. Or the cake tube with the ice cream inside of it, I would overdose on that cake, eat at least 1/4 of that tube and pass out on the couch while watching some tv.

These strange urges have been popping up often, when we went to the cinema the smell of popcorn got me hungry for popcorn. But luckily I know that the popcorn at KNCC tastes bad so I just avoided that, then there was the YanYan, the breadsticks with the chocolate dip, that looked really good but I resisted. Then there was the Krispy Kream just outside of the cinema in 360 which smelt so good, I could eat a dozen glazed doughnuts like they were chips. At Meat Co I had a mixed salad and 300g Rib Eye steak, it was perfect, except I wanted to eat more riblets and a little bit more food but I managed to stick to what I ordered which was just enough. All these cravings have been popping up but I have managed to resist the best of them. Surprisingly with this change in portions and diet, the best mushroom soup and salad I have had yet is in Ninos Avenues.

Pinkberry Visit

This is turning into a weekly ritual, a bite to eat at the French restaurant then a walk across the large hall over to Pinkberry. There was a small line as usual, they just aren’t effecient about the process of putting orders together and the toppings. They introduced chocolate as the new flavor at Pinkberry this week, we tried a sample and it tasted off, not as good as Pomegranate and Original.

I had my usual small original on Friday as the treat of the week and it was perfect. Nice and cold, a fresh taste for the day, just the right amount of sweetness. Both the pomegranate and original yoghurt ice cream tastes good, the perfect start to the afternoon then I headed out to the barder for the perfect shave.

Pinkberry – Damn Good

Pinkberry

I tried Pinkberry a few months ago and I remembered that it was good and I haven’t gone back there since. This past weekend we went for breakfast and after that we passed by Pinkberry for desert, I was pleasently surprised. It was damn good and I was really hungry for something sweet. They have two flavors that I tried, Pomegranate and Original, I went for the combination of both and it tasted damn good. They have some fruit and candy toppings but I just wanted it plain, didn’t feel like any toppings. People had some odd combinations but they seemed to like it. Later in the day we took the kids to the new Fantasy World in Avenues which was fun, and I thought to take them to Pinkberry for a little desert before heading home. When we went down stairs the line was at least 20 meters long so we decided to go else where. The food and quality is fantastic, the only problem they have is the system and how slow they are, they don’t seem systematic and really need to make these combinations faster even if people want to try. But it seems that people like them so much they are willing to wait and stand in this long lines.

Baskin Robins – Delivery

BaskinRobbins

Now this turned out to be an interesting conversation, we felt like Baskin Robbins ice cream since there was no Coldstone in the vicinity. We decided to call the 1800 number instead of driving there. I called the phone and an Egyptian man at the call center answered, I asked for Chocolate Chip and he said its not a flavor they have, then I asked for Prailins and Cream, then he said that isn’t a flavor they have, then I asked for Strawberry Cheese Cake Ice Cream, and he says they have Straberry Ice Cream. I asked him if this was this was Baskin Robbins and he said it is, so I said thank you but I will driver over there.

I thought I was out of my mind, but when I got to the Baskin Robbins I was correct with all my flavor choices. Then the Philipino guys at Baskin Robbins complained about the Egyptian call center, they don’t know the flavors and confuse the customers. Turns out the since Baskin Robins is part of Americana they put them under the same rule of Egyptian thumb, they have an overwhelming amount of Egyptians working for them in all their fast food franchises so its no surprise they are in the call center but they have no clue about the product. What surprises me is that they have Philipinos at most Baskin Robins, I honestly prefer Philipinos as they are very friendly and always give good service. So I wasn’t mixed up about the flavors but it seems I was talking to a guy who had no clue about the flavors.

Baskin Robins

Every once in a while I get this urge to have ice cream and this time during this strange weather I felt like some ice cream and sitting in front of the TV. I went thinking of Chocolate Chip, but I was surprised to see they had Orange Sherbert since its a flavor they don’t have all the time.

List of Favorites

  • Chocolate Chip
  • Orange Sherbert
  • Strawberry Cheese Cake
  • Rainbow Sherbert

A Light Bite

Well I consider it a light bite, I was sort of hungry but I had a very late lunch. I was craving ice cream so I went and got me some 31 Baskin Robins. It was one the best 4 scoops of Chocolate Chip I have had in a long time. I was watching some Star Trek Enterprise while eating these scoops, and they just disappeared once I was done with the show and it was really good. Ice cream isn’t the healthiest thing at the end of the night but it felt damn good!

My Vice

Recently I have been coming home watching some tv shows or anime, and every time I sit down I eat some KDD Toot, the Raspberry Toot. I would sit down in front of the screen and eat two, then 15 minutes later I would head down the basement and get two more form the freezer. I would make sure that there would be at least some ice cream in the vicinity while I’m watching these shows, and these ice creams are really light so I can keep eating a lot of them. I think the most I have eaten in one day is ten pieces and at least two pieces, I remember I used to eat a lot as a kid but I know I’m hooked again.

KDD Factory

Friday morning involved roaming around Shuweikh for some places. We were looking for Ace Hardware at 8:30 am and we thought we knew where we were going, but we were completely wrong. I thought it was close to IKEA but A2Z and True Value was around the area, it wasn’t Ace Hardware, we did end of somewhere unexpected which was the KDD factory. We walked in and it seemed like heaven, every juice you could imagine and lots of ice creams.

We spent a good 20 minutes waiting for the ice cream machine to kick into gear, but still we didn’t get any ice cream. When we asked for some Rockets or Raspberries they said they sell them in packs of 10, so that wasn’t an option. We left empty handed but next time we shall be stocking up on all forms of ice creams. I don’t care what anyone says, KDD is superior to both Petra and KDCow, so much better there isn’t even a comparison when it comes to the Ice Creams.
