OMG Ben and Jerry’s Limited Edition Key Lime Pie Ice Cream at WesShop!

Ben and Jerry's Limited Edition Key Lime Pie Ice Cream at WesShop!

So today I was casually strolling through WesShop, taking pictures of every single gluten free product they sell for an upcoming blog post. As I meandered past the freezer section, I did my usually quick skim of the Ben and Jerry’s selection, and there, right between Late Night Snack and Imagine World Peace, stood the highly coveted, limited edition Key Lime Pie Ice Cream. Obviously, I reacted in the calm and nonchalant way that any other excited person would. Hyperventilating, I pushed past the innocent students trying to pick up their Cherry Garcia to snap a picture, and between gasps, I sent Alex the following text. “THIS IS AT WESSHOP!! DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS?!” She called me immediately, stating that the text definitely merited a phone call. Thank you, Alex. This is why we have a food blog together.

Long story short, WesShop is now a vendor of the Ben and Jerry’s limited edition Key Lime Pie Ice Cream. Any limited edition ice cream is exciting, but this flavor, which has been universally referred to as one of the most delicious varieties to date, is particularly phenomenal. So stop whatever you’re doing. The paper can wait. This can’t, and walk, don’t run down to WesShop to buy yourself a pint. And by all means, eat the whole thing. For all we know, this could be your one and only opportunity!
