The Cool Comfort of Marks & Spencer & Brits

Whew!  What a stressful week --and it's not even over yet.  I need a hug.  No, an insanely tall glass of margarita.  Or, maybe... a large tub of complicated ice cream.

By some cosmic mind link, Nuffnang heard my internal cry for comfort.  And invited me to the Ice Cream Tasting bloggers' event of Marks & Spencer.
Talk about good timing!  I was just about to commit harakiri when i heard that familiar ding of new mail.

Marks & Spencer launched their British Favourites ice cream line at its food section today with very little hulabaloo.  The launch was simple and quiet.  Just a banner announcing free ice cream.  And, by God, who the heck doesn't want free ice cream?!

There were two tables laid out where tiny plastic cups, tiny wooden spoons, and tubs upon tubs of ice cream sat.  The very generous M&S ladies manning these stations were quick to scoop you up, and even offer you seconds and thirds.

The flavors were deliciously complex (See?  Nuffnang mind liiink...) ranging from Cookies, Cake and Cream to Molten Chocolate Brownie to Millionaire's Shortcake Indulgent Ice Cream.  We tasted them all (Uh-huh, we did!).  I furiously recommend the New York Blueberry Cheesecake Bliss while Kalakal Kid's passionate choice would be that lovely 'hic!' a minute, Cornish Clotted Cream Rum & Raisin.

Really, if you just want to drop everything and reach for that much-needed comfort food, why stop at Mango Bango, right?  With M&S new ice cream line, comfort was achieved --in style!  And it's only Thursday!

Of course, it being a Nuffnang thing, there just has to be freebies.  A British lootbag with M&S sweets and then we got for ourselves an M&S anti-melt tote filled with Belgian Chocolate Honeycombs and ...eherm... more Cornish Clotted Cream Rum & Raisin.
Yum, yum, yum!

Aww, you want some?  I'll give you a hug.  :P
