Love ice cream? Check this deal out!

My wife is a card carrying member of ice cream addicts anonymous. She really tries hard not to eat a lot of it. She is afraid of gaining weight. At 115lbs, I don't see that being an issue. But, alas, her evil hubby, me, is constantly pulling her off the wagon, back into the dark despair and hopeless grip that sweet, frozen confections from cows have on one's soul. But hey, it's ice cream, and it's worth it...especially when there is a great deal on it like this one.


First, you need to be near a Food Lion. This week, they are having a sale on Breyers ice cream...buy one, get one free. However, apparently the deal will still ring up at half price, if you only buy one. Add to this the printable coupon from here or here, and save $2.

Now, obviously prices will vary by region, but a half gallon of Breyers at my local Food Lion costs about $5. With the BOGO deal, I can get one for $2.50. Add the $2 coupon, and now it only costs me $0.50 (plus tax) for a half gallon of Breyers ice cream!! The second coupon link should give you 8 printable coupons. Make 8 separate transactions, and you can have 8 half gallon boxes of ice cream for around $5, with taxes. Eight cartons for the price of one!!

Time to slip into the dark oblivion of ice cream addiction. Don't forget the toppings!


Thanks to sunset0703 at Slick Deals for the info on the sale.

Nice! My husband actually sucked me into his horrible ice cream addiction, we go through two of those containers about every week or so...Wish we lived near a food lion, my husband would be so happy...

LOL!! Yeah, my wife got me hooked...she's my dealer now, and I have to have my ice cream fix, way to often for my waistline.
