Some Texas things we all seem to like are H-E-B, Astros and ice cream.

If you haven’t heard, the store is presenting a limited edition Creamy Creations in honor of the 2022 World Series champs.

It’s got Orbit and the ball park on the label and inside you get a triple play of peanut butter ice cream with peanut brittle pieces and a caramel swirl.

I tried some in H-Town.
