HOUSTON ASTROS ICE CREAM:
New HEB Ice Cream Dedicated to the Houston Astros is A Home Run! And if your a real Astros fan, you've just got to try it. Quite frankly you don't even need to be a fan of baseball to appreciate the latest creation, from HEB's Creamy Creation aptly named, " Houston Astro's Peanut Brittle."
Here is what is in the cool convection dedicated to Houston's favorite baseball team.
It's peanut butter ice cream combined with peanut brittle pieces and a caramel swirl.
Yes, please! It arrived exclusively in the Houston-area stores just a few days ago, perfectly timed with opening season!
And when we offer that Astros fans should try it, its not so much about the ice cream it's that five percent (5%) of each ice cream purchase will be donated to the Astros Foundation.
And that means every gallon sold will go to help support youth baseball and softball programs. The Astros Foundation further offers funding that helps reduce homelessness and raise awareness about childhood cancer in the city of Houston.
Here are some of the details from Fox 26 News in Houston.
