So, An Ice Cream Sandwich on a Baguette Happened

So that’s what that genius chef was doing inside the dessert center of my brain. Conducting a survey. You’re either clapping at your laptop right now, (claptop?) or grimacing.

::Fat Person Breathing:: Pinkberry PB&J Flavor

Uncrustables in a cup I totally have a Pinkberry problem, as evidenced by my frequent Facebook Pinkberry check-ins and subsequent worried comments (and intervention threats) from friends.
