Super Chunk Sweets & Treats owners to open New Wave Market

With the success and national recognition of their Super Chunk Sweets & Treats store owners Sergio & Country Velador figured now would be the right time to take 1,100 square feet next door to open their mom & pop New Wave Market in May. Still under construction the new store front will offer breads and baked goods, a lunch menu, house made ice cream and locally roasted coffee.

The old town Scottsdale location will have room to sell unique & quirky retail items and space for classes where they will teach how to make baked goods and crafts. “We want to take back the tradition of making things,” said Country. “There’s a new wave of interest in craft – in the actual ‘how-to’ of creating something yourself. New Wave Market is our way of celebrating that.”

The Velador’s focus will be baked goods with savory breads, take away lunches, specialty ice cream cones and cup and an espresso bar. Unique retail items from small batch producers such as American Spoon, COOP’s Microcreamery, and Curio Spice Co. and items for around the house and gifts from Funko, Fishs Eddy & Imm Living.

“We want to show off businesses that focus on creating high quality products in small batches,” Country said. “The goal is to have a unique, food-centric selection that will appeal to kids and adults alike.”

New Wave Market will be at 7120 E. 6th Ave. #20 Scottsdale 85251 and an exact date of opening is not yet scheduled. You can follow the progress & get an opening by checking out their social media @NewWaveMarket or website https://www.newwavemarket.com/

Blue Bell introduces Gingerbread House Ice Cream

New “Holiday Favorite” Joins Christmas Cookies, Peppermint and Spiced Pumpkin Pecan

‘Tis the season for all your favorite holiday foods, including a new Holiday Favorite ice cream from Blue Bell. Gingerbread House Ice Cream – a creamy cinnamon ice cream with flavorful gingerbread pieces, festive red and green sprinkles and miniature marshmallows all surrounded by a vanilla icing swirl – is the newest addition to Blue Bell’s seasonal line of Holiday Favorites available in stores after November 1.

“Building a gingerbread house and placing it as a holiday centerpiece is a yearly activity for many,” said Carl Breed, Blue Bell director of marketing. “And our ice cream has become a traditional dessert served in the homes of Blue Bell Ice Cream fans. That’s why Gingerbread House Ice Cream is a perfect addition to this line. The flavor is festive and definitely the best tasting gingerbread house I’ve ever eaten.”

Alongside Gingerbread House, Blue Bell is offering these returning Holiday Favorites: Christmas Cookies Ice Cream, Peppermint Ice Cream and Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Ice Cream.

Christmas Cookies is a combination of your favorite holiday cookies – chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and sugar – in a tasty sugar cookie ice cream with red candy cane-shaped sprinkles and a green icing swirl throughout. It was so popular last year, Blue Bell re-released earlier over the summer for a special Christmas Cookies in July promotion.

Spiced Pumpkin Pecan is a delightful spiced pumpkin ice cream combined with tasty sugar-coated pecans and a rich cinnamon-honey-praline sauce. This flavor made its debut in 2010.

Ice Cream Turkeys
1 scoop Blue Bell Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Ice Cream (approximately ½ cup)
14 pieces candy corn
1 round toothpick

Place ice cream in a small chilled dessert bowl pressing to adhere ice cream to the bowl. Wrap and freeze for one hour. Removed scoop from freezer and unwrap. Working quickly, press the points of 5 pieces of candy into the ice cream to make a fan-shaped tail. Press 3 pieces of candy on either side (laying flat on the ice cream) in a fan-shaped pattern to resemble wings. Carefully insert toothpick through one piece of candy (for the neck) from bottom to tip. Push the toothpick through the first piece of candy just enough to add a second piece of candy turned side-ways (for the head). Insert bottom of toothpick into ice cream at the appropriate spot for the neck. Wrap carefully or place in a deep sealable container and freeze for 4 to 24 hours. Remove from freezer, unwrap and serve. USE CAUTION WHEN SERVING THIS TO CHILDREN. REMOVE THE TOOTHPICK BEFORE ALLOWING THEM TO EAT. Makes one serving.

Note: If you don’t want to use a toothpick, try using a bendable straw cut to the appropriate size for a neck and head. Draw eyes and a beak on the straw or use icing to make a head.

Peppermint, a long-time favorite ice cream flavor during the holiday season, is a cool, refreshing peppermint ice cream sprinkled with peppermint candy pieces.

“We tried something new last year when we introduced our Holiday Favorites line of ice cream,” Breed added. “Traditionally, less ice cream is sold during the winter months, but our Holiday Favorites were an instant hit.”

Look for Gingerbread House Ice Cream along with the three returning Holiday Favorites neatly packaged in half-gallon containers adorned with a red ribbon and bow, available in your grocer’s freezer section starting November 1. Blue Bell Holiday Favorites are only available for a limited time.

Blue Bell is available at all major Arizona grocery stores. Visit www.bluebell.com for recipes, coupons and a complete list of flavors currently available in stores.
