International sighting: Ben and Jerry's Key Lime Pie
Posted: 20:11 Mon 17-Aug-2009. Price: $3.99. Location: Safeway, Shoreline, WA, USA.
"Targaff" reports: Browsing the ice cream shelves for something new to try, I spotted this lurking in the corner of the freezer behind a tub of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough; and indeed, much like its eponymous dessert, which even on this side of the pond is seldom front and centre, this ice cream is secretly delicious. It's described as "Lime Ice Cream with a Tangy Lime Twist, Fluffy Meringue Swirl and Pie Crust Pieces". The meringue is very subtle, bringing more texture than taste (not in a bad way), and I'd personally have preferred Graham Cracker chunks to pie crust, but that's okay! Because the limey bits are fabbo, and when you eat it all together it's just like key lime pie in a tub. And that's no bad thing.
...Thanks "Targaff" (and say hi to "Graham" if you ever spot him in Safeway). Anyway, in other dessert-based developments: Apple and Blackberry Pie was the most original of the Tickety-Moo ice-creams that I tried when Sainsbury were selling them for £2.50/tub (also available in Panna Cotta and Raspberry Pavlova, or Rhubarb and Custard Crumble), though Ambrosia's Crumble Puds and Jelly Puds should offer similar flavours in more traditional pudding formats. I also managed to pay just £1.99 for one of Antonio Federici's Gelatos in Sainsbury's (the Gianduia one tastes just like a big green Quality Street), though expect to pay more when another "self-styled guerrilla brand", Icecreamists take on Ben and Jerry's at Selfridges in September - and, speaking of luxury lines, Thorntons has produced a Mint Chocolate Truffle on a stick for this summer, as well as their perhaps unfortunately-named White Delight.

Comment: Homer says "Mmmmmmm, pie!"
I wonder if an old Hannah Gordon look-a-like does their adverts for them in the US?
