What are some good options...

For whatever reason, Blue Bell did not distribute the Mardi Gras King Cake flavor to DFW. I just picked some up from the Wal-Mart on Ohio.
It tastes pretty good - vanilla with a little cinnamon, the taste of KC icing, and chunks of KC.
Now I need to start searching Krogers and Tom Thumbs fo...

| More Sports Board|| Bigger Media-Created Dynasty? USCw or Alabama? - BobABooey on 11/30/13 at 6:38 pm|
Alabama has 3 SEC championships in the past twenty years, although 2 of those came in the last decade.
LSU has outperformed Alabama over both of those timeframes: 4 over 20 years, 3 in the last decade.
I'd still give the underperforming Tide the nod over USCw, though.
