Ever meet an ice cream you did not like?
That being stated…some ice cream is significantly better than others.
That is just about how my beautiful bride and I really feel about Dealer Joe’s Banana Pudding Flavored Ice Cream right here within the ‘burgh. Sandy and I contemplate ourselves ice cream aficionados and quasi-experts, and there isn’t any doubt we have eaten our justifiable share, if not rather more than that. So please pardon us if we will get a bit choosy.
There’s simply not fairly sufficient to really, 100% take pleasure in this newish pint of ice cream impressed by a traditional deal with. Banana pudding is decently pleasing all by itself, however add in issues like a salted caramel swirl and wafer cookie dough, it sounds like an nearly surefire winner. Nevertheless it would not translate in some way. Perhaps it is the additional creaminess, with it being, you already know, ice cream, and thus somewhat additional wealthy and candy so far as the banana pudding. That’d be my guess.
But in addition the mix-ins do not appear so as to add fairly sufficient, both. The salted caramel is a bit too bland and fundamental so as to add a lot contast, and the wafer is extra mushy and nondescript to be of a lot worth, both. Each of these parts are simply there and that is about all that may be stated. So what’s left is simply this cloying, overly candy and wealthy banana style, with out something to actually steadiness all of it out.
However, nicely, it is ice cream, so….
Not utterly sad right here, however this may not be a repeat purchase. Which is unhappy, as a result of it sounds so good. Some caramel that slapped a bit extra, or perhaps some ginger wafer, or one thing, one thing to make not so bloatedly banana-y, would actually go a good distance. However as is, meh.
However no less than it is ice cream.
