    Perplexed when I looked in frig

    I'm in SC, but my husband is from Texas, and he's picky about his ice cream! Thank goodness it's carried in most of our grocery stores, and Walmart!

    Best deals on car rentals?

    Yeah. There was a long line at Avis last year during Parents Weekend. There was food truck there selling burgers and water bottles-genius! We have since become Avis members so we can skip the lines!
