For the love of Magic Shell

funholidaygirl | Jun 26, 200702:05 AM     26

I am an ice cream lover and one of the convenience foods that I love is Magic Shell. It is underrated and underappreciated. When I get it people often muse that they didn't know that they still sold it.

I am unaware of where else you can get the ice cream hardening chocalate qualities anywhere else other than that little bottle.

One of my bitches through the years is the dearth of the old flavors and the addition of the new. Back in the day they had caramel, butterscotch (think they still have this but it may not be at my grocery stores), chocolate mint, chocolate fudge and many others. Now they have chocolate but they have tried to introduce these new flavors like twix and turtle. When you add chunky materials to the magic shell it stops it up and it is generally not as good. Just my two cents.

Any other magic shell fans out there? Someone also told me of an ice cream cake recipe using Magic Shell that sounded delicious. I may have to search around for that. I think it should appear in more dessert recipes. :) LONG LIVE MAGIC SHELL!
