Sheer Bliss...literally.

Michael & I splurged and bought ourselves some ice cream this weekend. His favorite indulgence is Ben & Jerry's Phish Food, but I'm not a big fan of stuff with marshmallows in it (unless it's a Smore, then bring 'em on) so I went with a new choice, something I had my eye on for a few weeks whenever I'd trudge around Walmart with the kiddies. And boy-howdy it did not disappoint.

In case you can't read the fine print that says "Sheer Bliss: Pomegranate with dark chocolate chips." *wipes drool off face* That's right. POMEGRANATE. WITH DARK CHOCOLATE. I don't think I even need to describe the delectable goodness. I knew I had made a good choice when our cashier starting raving about how amazing it is and practically wouldn't let us leave until he had recited a few sonnets about it. But I got it home and took one bite. Oh my. So much creaminess, so little time. To give an idea, the basic ingredients are something like: cream, milk, sugar, 100% pure pomegranate juice, cocoa butter...I'm sorry, I'm drooling again. Plus, my yumminess came in a metal tin that I can keep forever (I think it's going to hold all the Nerf gun darts that have infested my house) and Michael's got all soggy as it sat out and is now rotting in a landfill somewhere. AND it was only $2.00, which was ridiculously cheap for a pint of amazing ice cream when you consider that most brands are twice that. So if you see a metal tin of ice cream in your grocer's freezer that says "Sheer Bliss" on it, you need to believe the marketing hype because it really IS sheer bliss.
Thank you for your support.

Sheer Bliss has never heard of me. I just REALLY like their ice cream.

    Glad you like the ice cream. Contact sheerbliss at for coupons.

  4. do they have it without the dark chocolate chips? I mean don't get me wrong...dark chocolate is my preference when it comes to chocolate and pomegranates are possibly the best thing ever , but fruit and chocolate together...not so much my favorite.

  5. what, brooke?!?! i think you must have suffered a concussion at some point...seriously, how could you NOT like fruit & chocolate! but medical conditions aside, the answer to your question is YES, i believe there was a vanilla ice cream with pomegranate swirl. let me know if you try it!
