Ben & Jerry's Berried Treasure Sorbet

Eating this Ben & Jerry's "Berried Treasure" sorbet right now...

Ben & Jerry's Berried Treasure Sorbet
Overall it's tasty.

It's basically a lemon sorbet, and a tangy one at that. But it has swirls of blueberry and blackberry that provide some fruity contrast.

However, the tangy lemon sorbet still provides the more dominant flavor.

Haagen-Dazs Orchard Peach Sorbet

Eating right now...

Haagen-Dazs Orchard Peach Sorbet
Haagen-Dazs "Orchard Peach" sorbet.

Tastes very much like peaches. Kinda like the peaches you get from a can, in light syrup.

It's fat-free, but still with 33g of carbs, or 132g for the whole pint.

Dairy Queen Tagalongs Peanut Butter Patties Blizzard

Dairy Queen announced today the launch of a new Blizzard flavor, "Girl Scouts Tagalongs Peanut Butter Patties", and made it the Blizzard of the Month for July.

One of the most popular Girl Scout cookies, Tagalongs, also known as Peanut Butter Patties, are crispy cookies layered with peanut butter and covered with a chocolate coating. Dairy Queen breaks these into pieces and mixes it with creamy vanilla soft serve.

Dairy Queen Tagalongs Peanut butter Blizzard
This marks the second year that Dairy Queen is partnering with Girl Scouts of the USA, which last year culminated with the debut of the Girl Scouts Thin Mint Cookie Blizzard, which I mentioned here on JFB.

Last summer, Dairy Queen served more than 10 million of those Thin Mint Blizzards, making it the most popular limited time Blizzard flavor ever.

Hence why DQ is riding the girl scouts for a second straight year.

The average price of the Girl Scouts Tagalongs Peanut Butter Patties Blizzard and the Thin Mint Cookie Blizzard is $3.09 for the 12 oz., $3.49 for the 16 oz. and $3.99 for the 21 oz.

Pacifica Breeze Cafe, Del Mar, Review

Pacific Breeze Cafe, Del MarPacifica Breeze Cafe is a trendy cafe in downtown Del Mar, CA, located right on the Coast Highway, with a great outdoor patio that overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

Last weekend on a Sunday, Lisa and I rode the motorcycle down to that area just to find some restaurant or cafe we never been to. And hence, we found Pacifica Breeze Cafe.

We got there around 11:15am, still technically the breakfast hour I suppose. I had the Sunday paper in hand, and looked forward to breakfast, coffee, and a read.

This place gets packed!

You'll want to sit in the outdoor patio, but it seems that locals have this all figured out. You task the wife with securing a table, while sending the husband in to order all the food. It's not a traditional restaurant where you get seated, and a waitress takes your order. Rather, you walk up to a counter, and order. But they do deliver the food to your table.

We made the mistake of both of us ordering at the window, and then discovering the two open tables we spotted earlier were snatched up as described above.

So we just ate inside.

The coffee is self-serve. They give you three different roasts to choose from, and these large sized cups.

I had the breakfast burrito, pictured below. It's packed with pinto beans, scrambled eggs, bacon and pepper jack cheese, swimming in a red tomato sauce, mildly spiced, with country style potatoes.

Lisa had the french toast, which comes with two slices of bread, but very thick slices.

Pacifica Breeze Cafe does lunch and dinner, and from the reviews I read, they churn out some pretty killer meals, quite posh from the looks of it. You wouldn't associate the words "junk food" with a place like this, but then again, we're still talking about breakfast burrito and french toast here.

A rose by any other name, smells just as sweet as they say.

Mac the Chip Cookies

Mac the Chip Cookies

Had one of these cookies today at California Tea & Coffee in Temecula, CA.

These are touted as vegan cookies. I guess that means it has no egg ingredient.

This has chocolate chips. So I suppose it's some kind of milk free chocolate.

It's good. It's very sweet and has a buttery body to it, even though it's all non-dairy. But it still has a funny taste in the background. I'll stick to "real" cookies, but these are pretty good.

They are made by Alternative Baking Company, Inc. Visit their website: http://www.alternativebaking.com
