AICM (April Ice Cream Madness) Tournament!

The short-sleeve shirts and bright colors are in the store windows and the last of the winter jackets are hanging sloppily off their hangers somewhere amongst the clearance racks. Never mind the fact that it is still in the 30's and snow flurries were in the air this morning. No foolin'. It must be spring in Chicago.

And as the axiom goes, March groundhog indictment brings new flavors to April's grocery store shelves. Though I more often blog about local businesses, this month I will review mass produced products, nine pints worth that currently reside in my freezer. (Sorry, roomies!) Each round will have a winner that will duke it out in the championship. Check back all month to find out what is worth tasting and what is worth tossing.
Who will be the winner of best new superpremium grocery store flavor? Check back all month to find out. Past winner include Häagen-Dazs Coconut Macaroon (2012), Ben & Jerry's Red Velvet Cake (2011) and Häagen-Dazs Midnight Cookies and Cream (2010).
