Ice Cream Trucks near Waltham or anywhere near Boston/Metro West that carry FrozFruit

I second the Edy's bars...I have had both kinds and I think Edy's stacks up well.

Boston to Cape

There is the Provincetown Portuguese Bakery right on Commercial St that I hear is good...maybe not what you are looking for but likely worth a look in.

The ones with the dark chocolate, sea salt and sugar are delicious. :)

I like those Turkey Corn Dogs a lot. Not health food or anything, but yummy!

The blondies do look weird when you are making them, but they taste great once baked IMHO. Did you like them when they were done?

Bedford [or close by] help?

Thanks for the rec for Lexx...we ended up there twice and it fit our needs well, plus food was pretty good. We also tried Serafina in Concord for brunch...got their "private room" which is open to the restaurant...but were pretty unimpressed. It WAS very quiet though...oddly so!

Any chance you bought the Paneer Tikka Masala instead? Same sauce but with paneer [a soft Indian cheese in cubes] instead. I have had no issue with the chicken, luckily.

I did it in a pan on the stove and while it wasn't really dry, it wasn't really tasty either. Kind of blah.

They had the Sky Valley oranges at my TJs in MA early in the week and I should have bought them...because by yesterday they were gone. :( I asked and the woman told me that her manager said if they become available to order again he will order A LOT but was not confident that would happen. Very bummed. Really like the Cara Caras though.

We have the Crown of Rolls here in MA, and you are right, they are fabulous.

Bedford [or close by] help?

Hoping someone will have some ideas...looked through archives but didn't have much luck. I am looking for a restaurant in or close to Bedford for a Sunday lunch or brunch where 8 people could either have a private room or sit in a relatively private area that's not too noisy...we will be conducting an interview of sorts and it would be awkward if it was noisy or people were sitting very close by. Any cuisine welcome, just looking for ideas at this point. Thanks in advance!

Interesting on the rice bran oil. The cashews they sell [not the dry roasted, obvs] have rice bran oil and have this kind of nasty off taste, at least to us. Is the bottled oil very neutral?

Umm, that Guac making the list might be our fault...we eat a LOT of it. ;)

That's too funny...I can't buy the TJ's blueberry waffles bc of the smell, almost makes me feel sick. I think they taste fine [at least my 5YO thinks so], but I can't do it. The Eggo multigrain blueberry don't have that problem.

I was one of the Nays on the onion dip mix last month. Yucky. And I love the Lipton mix so am not a snob. :)

I keep looking for these in my store, but they are not to be found, and no sign either. I'm in MA. Will ask when I get a chance...am dying to try!

I am embarrassed to admit that I did just that. It was too much, but not by all that much! :) I have a big appetite, though.

Thanks for the heads up...I bought them and ate them for lunch yesterday. As others said, the fries themselves are very good! I was skeptical about the gravy but it was actually pretty good, and the curds were yummy also. They kind of clumped together when they were heated so I had to break them up by hand, but no biggie...overall, I really enjoyed them and would definitely buy again!

Masala Art or Minerva or (fill in the blank)?

Himalayan Bistro in West Roxbury is really good, and probably pretty close to where they are staying.

Can't remember if anyone has mentioned this...but NAY on the packet of onion soup mix. I was having a craving for the good old Lipton onion dip and was in TJs when it hit so bought this instead. Ugh. Just not very tasty, imho.

No Pound Plus 72% at TJs??????

Not to bum you out, but I just saw a whole shelf of it at my local TJs in MA. Or maybe that will make you more hopeful?

I like the whole wheat ones but wouldn't call them tangy. They are soooo much cheaper than Thomas' and healthier so it's a tradeoff. :)
