If you love Rocky Road ice cream…

I’d strongly recommend avoiding Walmart’s Great Value Rocky Road ice cream.

Don’t get me wrong. Rocky Road’s one of my favorite flavors, but whoever made this batch of GV Rocky Road forgot to put nuts in it. In the two bowls I’ve had, I think I’ve had maybe three almonds. Total. Hardly any marshmallows.

Frank Rosenthal, inspiration for the Sam “Ace” Rothstein character from the Martin Scorsese film Casino, once confirmed that he did indeed instruct his bakers to place an equal amount of blueberries in each muffin served at his casino. One has to wonder if Walmart should be instructed to place an equal number of nuts in each 1.75 quart container of Rocky Road.

    It’s not just your tub, it’s the product. The tip was in the name: “Great Value”.
