Mark Your Calendar—New Flavors are Coming to Culver’s!

Don’t miss the giveaway at the end of this post!

The weather is warming up which means I’ll be looking for literally ANY reason to treat myself and the kiddos to something cold, creamy, and delicious.

But not just any frozen treat will do…

Frozen custard is OUR JAM. So imagine our delight upon learning that our favorite frozen custard spot—Culver’s—is releasing new Flavor of the Day recipes!

What is this “Flavor of the Day” you speak of?
Every day, in every Culver’s restaurant (all 650+) they combine farm fresh milk and pasteurized eggs to make small batches of the creamiest fresh frozen custard. You’ll find vanilla and chocolate fresh frozen custard, along with a “Flavor of the Day” — and brace yourself because Culver’s is adding not one, not two, but SIX new recipes to their “Flavor of the Day” lineup.

And I tried all six!

And believe me when I tell you that you are going to want to mark your calendar for the 10th of every month through October, so that you can try them too.

I’ll wait while you add the recurring event to your calendar…list the event as “GO EAT LIFE CHANGING FROZEN CUSTARD AT CULVERS.”

Normally, each Culver’s restaurant gets to pick their own daily Flavor of the Day from the list of “official” flavors. But to celebrate these six new flavors, every Culver’s restaurant is serving the same new Flavor of the Day!

Cappuccino Cookie Crumble — May 10th
Vanilla fresh frozen custard blended with espresso, crushed sugar cookies, and swirls of novelty chocolate. AMAZING. The combination of the sugar cookies and the espresso frozen custard is so good! I’m thrilled this is the first flavor Culver’s is releasing. Because I need it. NOW. How early in the day is “too early” for frozen custard?

Blackberry Cobbler — June 10th
Vanilla fresh frozen custard, cinnamon granola crumble and blackberries. This flavor is bright and fresh and tastes like summer in a cup! The granola crumble is delicious, cinnamon-y, and crunchy and is such a great balance to the berries. Fruit lovers—you’re going to want to get your hands on this one.

Chocolate Pretzel Crunch — July 10th
Vanilla fresh frozen custard, chopped Bavarian pretzels, novelty chocolate and salted caramel. These aren’t just any old pretzels. Bavarian sourdough pretzels are sturdy and crunchy and were pretty much made to be combined with chocolate and salted caramel and frozen custard. Whatever you know about chocolate covered pretzels, put that aside because you haven’t LIVED until you’ve had this flavor!

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough — August 10th
Peanut Butter fresh frozen custard with roasted peanuts and chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough. It’s tough to improve upon actual peanut butter, but they did it with Peanut Butter frozen custard. Seriously. Give it to me by the bucket. Plus cookie dough and roasted peanuts!

Dark Chocolate Decadence — September 10th
A blend of premium cocoas to create the first dark chocolate flavored frozen custard on the Culver’s menu. Part of the Culver’s magic is that their frozen custard is creamier and more flavorful than ice cream, which means that all of Culver’s history has been leading to THIS MOMENT. This dark chocolate frozen custard was silky and rick and mind blowing. Do not miss this flavor!

Peanut Butter Salted Caramel — October 10th
Peanut Butter fresh frozen custard with roasted peanuts and ribbons of salted caramel. Culver’s has taken two classic favorites (peanut butter and salted caramel) into one delicious flavor! This blend of sweet and salty has so many tasty layers to it—it’s truly one for the peanut butter fans!

Six cups of Culver’s frozen custard in one day…it was pretty much all of my dreams come true.

And we’re giving away 10 free scoops of Culver’s frozen custard! To enter to win, just leave a comment telling me which new Flavor of the Day recipe you’re most excited to try!

Last day to enter is Friday, May 18th! Good luck!

One Chicken Strip…SO MANY Options

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own.

Every kid loves a chicken strip.

And let’s be honest, I never met a chicken strip that I couldn’t muster some serious affection for, as well.

I’m here to tell you—the mighty chicken strip is the unsung hero of the dinner table.

Why? Because my kids LOVE them and will gobble them up with enthusiasm, AND with a few extra ingredients and prep, Mom and Dad can enjoy a quick and tasty grown up dinner too.

The best part? The folks who make Tyson® chicken have a whole bunch of products that are raised with no antibiotics EVER.

Just look for the specially marked packages at Walmart—including nuggets, strips, Any’tizers® snacks and drumsticks—to fill your freezer full of antibiotic-free, easy to prepare chicken that will solve your growling tummy situation in a hurry on even the busiest of school nights!

Tyson Foods has a long-standing dedication to quality and their chicken is raised no antibiotics ever and is made with 100% all natural* ingredients (*Minimally processed; no artificial ingredients).

This makes my mom brain happy—I worry about whether or not my kiddos are getting enough protein for their active, growing bodies. Whenever I can visit Walmart and stock my freezer and fridge with delicious food that they enjoy (and will wolf down without complaint), I am THRILLED.

Bonus points for quick meals that I can get on the table after a busy afternoon of extracurricular activities.

And if I can multi-task my cooking, prep, and ingredients so that I get to eat something that resembles an adult-friendly meal? Well, friends, that’s HAPPY DANCE material.

My go-to Tyson chicken BFF are the fully cooked crispy chicken strips.

In the time it takes to heat them up in the oven (a quick 18-20 minutes), I can prepare the rest of any number of very family-friendly meals.

Think of the possibilities:

Chicken Wraps
A warm tortilla, some shredded lettuce, a few chopped veggies, salad dressing, and shredded cheese.

Mini Chicken Parmesan
Whip up some spaghetti and marinara, toss some mozzarella on those strips for the last few minutes in the oven and BOOM!

Teriyaki Rice Bowls
Rice, steamed broccoli, steamed carrots, some teriyaki sauce and chopped chicken strips.

Fettuccini Alfredo
Can you think of anything better than crispy chicken tossed with noodles and a creamy cheese sauce? Me neither.

Or the crowd favorite at my house—chicken strips with dipping sauce, veggies, fruit and some cheese.

Oh and most of that can be repurposed as a CRAZY TASTY salad for me!

See what I mean? Tyson chicken to the rescue.

CRISPY CHICKEN SALAD

Ingredients:
-Spinach
-Chopped Tyson no antibiotics ever crispy chicken strips
-Sliced Apples
-Chopped Pecans
-Dried Cranberries
-Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
-Vinaigrette (my favorite is a red wine variety)

Directions:

  1. Warm Tyson fully cooked crispy chicken strips according to package directions.
  2. Assemble additional salad ingredients.
  3. Chop warmed crispy chicken strips and add to salad.
  4. Enjoy and high-five yourself for getting something so delicious on the table in under 20 minutes.

Hey! One more thing—if you’ve got a hankering for some good old fashion chicken breasts or strips, Tyson chicken products have you covered there too. Just look for the specially marked “No Antibiotics Ever” packages in the freezer and refrigerated section.

Those frozen chicken breasts are my go-to for slow cooker meals. Try a few chicken breasts in the slow cooker with a BBQ sauce and you’re well on your way to shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches for dinner.

That plan also works marvelously with buffalo sauce if you like your chicken a little on the SPICY side.

Stock up on the whole Tyson chicken line of “no antibiotics ever” products at your local Walmart and make your dinnertime schedule a WHOLE LOT EASIER!

*No artificial ingredients, minimally processed.
