Oh the weather outside is frightful.

Ok, truth be told, the weather outside here is not frightful, it’s quite gorgeous! Would I love a white Christmas? Absolutely. Do I miss living in the snow? Not so much.

Thankfully, I can get the best of both worlds since we celebrate Christmas with Matt’s parents and they live in a part of Arizona, where there might be snow.  We have had such a mild winter so far, I’m not sure there will be snow this year, but one can hope right?

With Christmas right around the corner, I have gotten into quite the Christmas spirit.

In case you missed the decorating and baking adventures, here is a little re-cap.

I am still in love with our tree.

And there are holiday knick-knacks all around the apartment.

And let’s not forget my Christmas conehead. (cone has since been removed, but seriously how cute)

♥ ♥ ♥

There was also a bit of baking going around here.


Thank goodness half these left the house for Matt’s work party because seriously, I ate so much puppy chow, I might turn into it.

♥ ♥ ♥

So with the Christmas spirit, I thought this would be the perfect time to host a little Christmas giveaway. It is the season of giving right?

I’m lucky with nicer weather to where ice cream is still totally acceptable to me. Well really, it could be 10 below and I could still eat ice cream.

But with the holiday’s I know everyone is trying to “be good”, but moderation is everything people!

Luckily with this product though, you don’t have to “be good”. Nope you heard me folks, you can eat this whole pint of ice cream guilt free!

What is this marvelous product you ask? A lot of you have heard of it, maybe some of you haven’t. But you should.

I am going to start off by saying this, if you want real, traditional ice cream. This is not it, but I personally love it for what it is, and that’s how you have to go into this product.

No pre-judgement, just take it for what it is.

And I happen to think it’s delicious.

I was so so lucky and got to try all the flavors including their seasonal Pumpkin Spice.

♥ ♥ ♥

Here is what I thought of them:

Chocolate: A classic. And that’s that. I honestly don’t think you can go wrong with chocolate.

Chocolate Peanut Butter: Matt really liked this one. But from a peanut butter snob, it wasn’t my favorite. The peanut butter taste was just a bit off to me. Not bad. Not great.

Coffee: Ok, this was the one I was most excited to try, and honestly the one I was most disappointed in. Maybe I set too high of expectations. Again, not horrible, but not something I would buy on it’s own.

Cookies and Cream: This one was a winner! I loved it! Again, not your typically cookie chunks in real ice cream, but for the alternative it was really good.

Mint Chocolate Chip: Hands down my favorite!! Mint chocolate chip is my favorite ice cream flavor and this is a great way to curve that craving! This one was gone in a matter of days. By me, Matt was not allowed to touch this one!

Strawberry: Again a classic flavor. It was pretty yum!!

Vanilla Maple: This flavor got raves, so I was very excited to try it. It really does have a nice blend of vanilla and maple and I was not disappointed in this one.

Pumpkin Spice: I know you’re all drooling over this one, and yes it was pretty dang tasty. I basically love pumpkin anything though!

♥ ♥ ♥

So overall, I was pretty impressed. Again remember this is not your real ice cream and I’m not going to lie and say if I had to choose, I would pick real mint chocolate chip ice cream any day, but if you’re looking for a guilt-free ice cream alternative, this stuff is legit!!

And honestly, I really like it. A lot. Too much maybe.

♥ ♥ ♥

So I know you’re all patiently waiting for the giving part of this right?

Well your wait is over.

Arctic Zero is amazing and they are allowing one lucky Accidently Delish winner the chance to try their ice creams.
