Junior Mint Ice Cream

You know how Carrie Bradshaw is all “hello lover” when it comes to Manolo Blahniks? Well that’s what I said when I saw this Turkey Hill Junior Mint ice cream today in the freezer section of the Porter Square Shaws. I literally stopped in the middle of the aisle and did a double take. Then I gleefully pulled it from the frosty depths of the deep freeze and gently placed it in my cart in the little seat part that is generally reserved for children, fragile produce, or eggs.

Junior Mints are my all-time favorite candy. They’re my go-to movie theater food. If a cinema doesn’t stock Junior Mints then honestly they simply aren’t worthy of my patronage. A little popcorn, some diet coke, and a Junior Mint now and again definitely enhances the movie going experience. What are your movie theater must haves? CK always gets gummy things like sour patch kids and gummy stars. It completely grosses me out.

By the way, the ice cream is delicious. The Junior Mints are even soft and chewy. You’d think they would be rock hard little balls of frozen gunk but via some magic voodoo they aren’t. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole minty ice cream, candy dotted, fudge swirled action it has going on. That small dish was seriously the perfect way to end a simply gorgeous Friday afternoon.

I saw this last week–had to work really hard not to buy it. Is it as good as i know it is?

Movie must have: Goobers. Popcorn. One soda. Used to love the giant Sweet Tarts.

YUM! i wonder if Turkey Hill has a west coast name. I’ve never seen that brand in the grocery store but i want some! i love mint chocolate ice cream.

i love red vines at the movies. or goobers mixed in my popcorn. it all depends on my mood. 😀

Did you ever see the inside out Junior Mints? They were chocolate on the inside and minty on the outside. I may still have some stashed in the back of the freezer for a rainy day.

My favorite movie candy is M&M’s. I like to throw them in the popcorn bucket for a sweet and salty treat.

Enjoy your ice cream!

That ice cream looks incredible. Wow, just wow!! Delicious. I’m a total junior mint fan myself.

I always look forward to having Turkey Hill ice cream on my trips home to Virginia. It is truly fantastic ice cream. I wonder what limited edition flavors they’ll have on my next visit?

I love ice cream that has a lot of stuff in it–filled with lots of crunchy or chewy bits. I would love to try this, did it have a lot of stuff in it? LOL

Oh I don’t like mints with chocolate, unfortunately. I used to not even like mint at all, but I’m slowly getting over that. A movie theater must have: popcorn, raisinets!

What a find, Erin! I’ve forwarded this post to my mother. I always think of her when I see Junior Mints. They have been her candy of choice for as long as I can remember.

Yet another ice cream I have to try!!

Remember when the almond joy ice cream came out??


12 Lindsey April 20, 2009 at 7:03 pm

Oh my…this sounds delicious. And as much as I despise and avoid the porter square shaw’s, I might have to go there just to get this, in case my stop and shop doesn’t carry it. Which is altogether possible.

Kramer: Who’s gonna turn down a Junior Mint? It’s chocolate, it’s peppermint -it’s delicious!
Jerry: That’s true.
Kramer: It’s very refreshing!

oh the texture!! i wonder if they have something like this here in texas. probably not. OMG did i just read almond joy ice cream???

hm. i usually try to say no to theatre goodies (oh think of the calories, lol) but i usually get popcorn with a dash of salt and butter on half of it. the ridiculously buttery side is for my fiance. 😀


15 justcooknyc April 21, 2009 at 9:34 pm

whoa, I need to try this asap!!!

Recipe out there famous for using Andes mints but my friend was making brownies and could not get Andes. So she substituted the Junior Mints – Wow very yummy!

My six year old loves Junior Mints … and ice cream. This looks like a perfect treat for him – thanks for the heads up!

I first found Junior Mint ice cream in The Super Stop and Shop and was soooooo excited because I am the biggest Junior Mint fan ever! I begged my mom to get it and she finally gave in. I was very disappointed to know that mostly ever kind of Junior mint is a limited edition!

I just now read this post and I’m totally homesick for Lancaster County, PA. I grew up near the actual dairy and learned how to ice skate on their pond as a kid. We live in Utah and can’t get our beloved Turkey Hill out here unless we drive an hour and a half to the Wyoming border…
