Circus Animal Cookie Ice Cream

Anybody else remember going to the grocery store, and looking forward to getting an old school box of animal crackers to enjoy when it was over?

I used to live for that.

Now my kids want things like 25 cent soads, and 35 cent bags of cheetos. Same price, but new school snacks. The nostaglis must just be mine. 😦

Animal Circus Cookie Ice Cream

I’ll bet between my strawberry cheesecake ice cream, grilled peaches, and healthy cherry cheesecake popsicles, ya’ll thought I was turning into some sort of grown up. We can’t have that, now can we? That was enough adulting for a few posts. At least 🙂

Which brings us to a post sure to bring out the kid in all of us. Circus Animal Cookie Ice Cream.

When I found out they made those same cracker/cookies I’d always loved, but frosted?? I had to get those for the sons, as much as for myself. And we’ve all loved them ever since.

They’re so yummy, what with their signature creamy-coated cookie crunch and all. And something that snack-tastic could only be improved by one thing.

Ice cream.

If you love the cookies, then you’re going to think this ice cream is nothing short of heavenly.
