Carvel, America’s Freshest Ice Cream, celebrates its summer-long 80th anniversary celebration with their newly released Nutella flavors! Nutella lovers will agree, this collaboration between Carvel and Nutella is entirely overdue. It is sad to know that it will only last throughout the summer. This is one summer love affair you don’t want to miss!

Make sure to indulge with your choice of two sundae varieties, Sundae Dasher with Banana or Sundae Dasher with Chocolate Crunchies. The banana version has layers soft-serve made with Nutella and bananas topped with whipped cream and Nutella hazelnut spread. Sundae Dasher with Chocolate Crunchies is perfect for chocolate lovers (like myself) with layers of soft-serve made with Nutella and Carvel Crunchies topped with whipped cream and Nutella hazelnut spread. YUM! Are you tasting it yet? I did! Every bite or so, we hit the crunchy chocolates, they were nice to munch on. Something that got me by surprise, the hazelnut didn’t have the odd after taste I expected.

Check out the gorgeous swag Carvel sent me:

Which Sundae should you try? Banana fans will enjoy Sundae Dasher with Banana best because the banana is the most apparent flavor. True Nutella fans, even if you aren’t a large chocolate fan, will enjoy Sundae Dasher with Chocolate Crunchies best. This flavor option carries the most Nutella punch.

Carvel with Nutella is only available in Carvel Shoppes. There, you can try all of the new Carvel with Nutella products; both Sundae Dashers, Hand-Scooped Chocolate Ice Cream layered with Nutella and Carvel Crunchies, and Soft-Serve Ice Cream made with Nutella. Hurry because this summer love will end September 30th!

Try the new Nutella flavor at your nearest Carvel shoppe near you!

Oh Hair! The story of my  life.  During my teenage years, my hair and I had an abusive relationship. Trying to get my hair in the right track by searching for the right healthy products for my Latina cabello, was a challenge.

Wished I would have known of Imágen Salon Formula hair products! The curly vs. straight hair dilemma would have been a thing of the past. Our hair says so much about our own personality. Are we similar? My first instinct when selecting a shampoo and conditioner is to smell it. Staging shiny, scented hair says a lot about yourself and the product, so why not make it a WIN WIN. Imágen Moisturizing Gel Shampoo and Hair Strengthening Conditioner passed the test! Make sure to grab the Imagen complete line of products available at Target and now $1 OFF from its regular price! Can’t beat that!

Learning about the Stephan Company’s initiative in bring together Hispanic consumers with Imágen, their salon formula hair care line, was fantastic!
