Thanksgiving dessert panic

For the past few years, I've hosted Thanksgiving. I've pretty much got it down to a science, except for the desserts. I usually head over to Frisch's and buy an assortment of pies -- pumpkin, apple and a chocolate pie for the husband.
But this year, I was planning to make an ice cream pie using Edy's Slow-Churned Pumpkin ice cream. It's one of their light flavors, and I thought I could throw something together for those of us still watching our calorie intake at the end of the evening.
So I went to Bigg's, and it was GONE! Sure, it says Limited Edition on the carton, but I didn't think it would be sold out so fast. They are on to peppermint and egg nog. Sigh. Let me know if you've seen the pumpkin. I'm heading off to Kroger now...

did you ever find that Edy's pumpkin ice cream? a friend of mine just brought me a half gallon of Velvet pumpkin ice cream from hyde park kroger's. not as low in fat, but maybe a good substitute... (of course, neither can be as good as Graeter's version, but i think that ended again in october.)

I haven't been able to find it. Sigh. I am thinking of going over to Ritters Frozen Custard (up in West Chester) to see if they still have pumpkin. It won't be low fat, but at least half my dream will be realized! I'll look for the Velvet, though, too, when I am at Kroger this evening (a not-so-fun trip on Thanksgiving Eve). Thanks for the tip!

I'm a transplanted Yankee in the south now (24 years and counting), and I just found Edy's Pumpkin Ice Cream (regular not light)at a Farm Fresh store down here (tonight!). I also found a light version of Edy's Eggnog Ice Cream.

Both are delicious!
