An Ice Cream Playdate with Hood!

Disclosure: I was invited to try Hood’s newest product free of charge.  All opinions are my own.

Yesterday afternoon, Julie from A Year With Mom & Dad and the folks from Hood organized an ice cream playdate at the beautiful Wickham Park in Manchester, CT.  It was literally 100° outside so ice was the perfect thing to beat the heat!

My son was super excited to “Meet Harvey.” Harvey bars are the newest treat from Hood.  Named after their founder Harvey P. Hood (who always wore a bowtie, btw.) They come in four flavors and are filled with creamy Hood ice cream and coated in a thick layer of rich chocolate.  We tried Toffee Crunch and Cookies ‘n’ Cream and were fans of both!


My boys even finished their bars before they melted in the hot sun, which is a pretty big feat for a 2 & 4 year old!


I am going to have to buy a box to stick in the freezer for a special summer treat.  They also come in regular Vanilla & Vanilla Crisp.  I think I will try the Vanilla Crisp next, I love a little crunch in my ice cream!

We had a great day, the park was the perfect spot and the kids had a blast playing and making new friend!… and eating ice cream of course!kidsplaying

Check out Hood’s website to see if there is a chance to Meet Harvey in your area (and learn how to tie a perfect bowtie, like Harvey.)
