Nestle Drumstick Review + Giveaway

14 May 2012

We are inching closer and closer to summer here in Ohio. We keep getting little glimpses of it--an 80-degree day here, an 85-degree day there. It is just enough to break out the shorts, open up the windows and stick toes in the grass. This weekend, we did just that. Off we went to spend some time with the cousins. It was nothing special, just some time playing on the swing set and enjoying this gorgeous weather. We parents got to sit on the deck with the little ones and watch the boys having a blast.

When we broke out the box of Nestlé® Drumstick® Lil’ Drums Caramel Delights, they were so excited. Myles and Finn chose the Vanilla Caramel Crunch cone and Colin went for the Caramel Graham cone. We had never tried the Lil’ Drums before, and they are the PERFECT size for kids. At just 120 calories, they aren’t too shabby for the adults either. The boys were able to enjoy the cones themselves…even if Colin started his from the bottom. I’m definitely going to remember to keep a box in the freezer for summer playdates and after-dinner treats.

There are so many flavors to choose from, there is a cone for everyone. You can check out all of the flavors on the Nestlé Drumstick Facebook page. I hate to play favorites, but I always go for the Classic Vanilla Caramel. With the peanuts and crunchy chocolate shell coupled with an extra ribbon of caramel on the inside, it is hard to beat the original. You already know my feelings about filling-less Drumsticks, but if you go with the variety pack, there is something for everyone. My sister would dump the Classic in a second for the Cookie Dipped. We’re all dying to try the new Pretzel Dipped Drumstick cones; sadly we weren’t able to find them, but we’re keeping an eye out. Pretzels and chocolate and ice cream? Sign me up for that sweet, salty, crunchy combo.

Let’s hope Mother Nature gets her act together soon. We are ready for this warm weather all the time. The season for barbeques, long walks with Monty, baseball, fireworks, afternoons at the park or the zoo, and days by the pool are quickly approaching, and we can’t wait!

times such as this i wish one did tweet...but one does not. i think these are like the perfect little sweet without going overboard. favorite summer activity, hmm...all the craft shows that take place down the shore. poor boyfriend gets dragged to them all!

Tawny said...

I am looking forward to date nights at the beach, sunset walks around the neighborhood and dining outside with friends.

Mara said...

Backyard. Really that's about it. The tv barely gets turned on in the summer, we're too busy hanging out on the patio. With bare feet <3

Just A Normal Mom said...

We are such a baseball family, that I've really come to appreciate that every game forces me to sit outside, enjoy the company of the other parents around me and just take in the moments without worrying about anything else that needs to be done. That and bbq in the backyard!

Hmmm. I think lately it's been going to the pool. Allie loves it. But I think going to the park might be right up there. The swings are where it's at for the baby girl.

Days at the pool with the family are my favorite, followed by an evening cookout! And we definitely need to set up the outdoor movie again this summer!

Erin Mikulak said...

Reading a good book in a hammock (or any other comfortable chair) eating a nestle drumstick at that point when its just about to be sunset and the breeze starts flowing so its just cool enough to bare being outside in the hot louisiana summer. Thats what I need...

My favorite activity during the summer is finding new things to do with my daughter during the days. This year so far we have found a dog park to take our dog to, signed up for the YMCA to swim and started going to the matinee at the movies. We also go on walks, go to the book store and just find new things each day to enjoy together.

Thanks!
Samantha
