    Jeni's ice cream-they have some amazing flavors you wouldn't necessarily think of. Goat cheese and cherries is one of my favorites. Just as a sampling http://jenis.com/flavors/ice-creams/

    They have new flavors a lot too. They are fairly pricey though, which keeps me from indulging too often ;)

    That goat cheese and berries one sounds amazing!! I'd also like to try the lavender one.

    Now I really want some ice cream! :p

    Funny story about the lavender one. The first time BF took me, nothing looked appealing so he just got the lavender. I tried it and thought it tasted like lotion lol. Thankfully he made me try it again and a love with Jeni's was born ;)

    I don't really have any sweet tooth to speak of, though I'll eat sweet stuff occasionally.

    My treats are all salty:
    - Doritos (usually cool ranch)
    - sour cream and onion chips (Lays or Pringles)
    - hot cheetos (They are awful I realize, but they taste so good....)
    - movie theater popcorn (In my day to day, healthier existence, I eat Boom Chicka Pop as a snack, but this is supposed to be a thread about special treats right?:))

    Popcorn! With extra butter!

    Plantain chips - This Cuban restaurant by work makes the BEST and I just can't stop eating them once they're in front of me.

    Turtle brownies. BF doesn't like nuts or caramel, so I don't get them very often.

    And... Publix cake. It's not a party unless there's a Publix chocolate/vanilla/ fresh strawberry/whipped topping cake!

    Haha. I'm a sucker for rich chocolate cake with thick chocolate frosting. But anything baked will do in a pinch.
