I discovered Tillamook Oregon Strawberry Ice Cream. Better than any strawberry flavor BB or Creamy Creations have produced.

Yes, HEB carries it - at least they did last fall.

Oh, the Tillamook stuff is really good.

Yes, I got some at Randall’s and it is by far the best strawberry ice cream I’ve ever had.

I'm not a big ice cream consumer. Didn't Adam's Extract get into the Ice Cream game? I bought some back around 2015 but don't go by that aisle very often. Are they still doing Ice Cream or no?

speaking of that, does anyone have a photo of the Adam's plant off IH-35 southbound on the way to san Marcos?  I guess it would be modern day Buda....I wanted to show a trucker friend of mine that facility.  From the old Austin archives I suppose...

The TV crime shows with Fart, Barf and Itch coming in and pushing the locals off a case is not solely a creature of fiction. 

Fartbarf is a pretty good synthesizer band out of Los Angeles. 

Check them out.

You'd think you'd of all people would know the rules because you were there when they were handed down on stone tablets to Stephen F. Austin but I guess you don't.

Yeah, I remember that.  I think was a store brand, which probably would have meant Randalls/Safeway/Tom Thumb for me.  I think it was mostly a licensing deal and using the flavors/extracts rather than Adams actually making ice cream.

Well, nope. It's advertised on the Adams' site, but an HEB exclusive, so it might be an HEB brand. https://adamsextract.com/InStores/productDetails.aspx?productID=65033&departmentName=In-Stores&productName=Adams-Ice-Cream

So whose jurisdiction is it when a person who never left Texas is criminally responsible for the death of a person who never left Kansas?

FM 1626 exit.  It was less than a mile from Crumley's Store that had the giant Christmas light display year round.  Crumley's is now a Planet K and the Adam's Extract property  is almost completely built out with various things.

This. There's a gas station mart thingy, a collision repair place and I think some new medical building.

When Blue Bell was pulled from the shelves, Adams and HEB hooked up to fill the void with trusted names. I liked the ice cream they put out. I guess the agreement was a short-term deal, as HEB hasn't offered the Adams ice cream in a while.

 

Blue Bell can go fuck themselves.

I am going to have to find some of this Tillamook ice cream.  We are a big fan of their cheeses.  Their Mexican Four Cheese is our go to for tacos.

This thread has taken a (couple) fascinating turns--I didn't know about the Austin connections for Adams, but after reading the posts was thinking that it reminded me of the the Mike Judge movie "Extract", and sure enough, that was part of the inspiration (apologies in advance if that was previously discussed on the old site). And ditto on Tillamook--haven't had their regular ice cream, but their ice cream sandwiches and cheeses are awesome.

Oh, and to stay on topic, for some unbeknownst reason randomly had some Blue Bell "homemade" vanilla in the freezer and made the mistake of eating some earlier this week--I promptly got sick and after throwing the rest of it out am now fully on board the "f those guys" bandwagon....

Tillamook is good, but I've only seen it at my local Kroger, haven't seen it at HEB. They had this vanilla flavor that had bits of vanilla bean in it. Tasted great.

I've only seen vanilla lately and can't remember if I even saw any at all the last few times I went. The pecan pie flavor was amazing.

The Adams pecan praline is/was the best fucking ice cream on the planet.

This is the truth.

The HEB locations near me carry Tillamook ice cream sandwiches, but not the ice cream. Any time I want to buy ice cream I stop by Kroger because they carry Tillamook. I'll never go back to blue bell, the marionberry pie flavor is fucking awesome.
