Dealer Joe’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Mild Ice Cream

Trader Joe's Chocolate Peanut Butter Light Ice Cream

After posting our assessment of the Mild Cookies & Cream ice cream taste, quite a lot of readers asserted that this Peanut Butter Chocolate model was even higher. So, naturally, we needed to test it out ourselves.

I am going to provide the TL;DR up entrance—I agree with these readers, Sonia doesn’t. 

I’ve all the time had an affinity for peanut butter, most peanut butter flavored merchandise, and positively any ice cream that may work the luscious, protein and good-fat-rich, creamy, buttery, legumey goodness of peanut butter into its combine in any form of competent method. Sonia likes peanut butter okay, however is not significantly keen on peanut butter in her ice cream. Honest sufficient.

I additionally assume peanut butter lends itself to this “protein shake in my ice cream” vibe that these gentle ice lotions are throwing our manner, or at the least it really works higher with peanut butter than it does with sandwich cookies. I’ll by no means in one million years make the assertion that ANY of those food regimen ice lotions even come near the true factor, however I need to admit the calorie rely is dramatically decrease than a pint of the full-calorie stuff.

This ice cream flaunts a wealthy chocolate look to it—it is a deep brown, practically showing like brownie batter. Every chew has loads of chocolate taste, and to a lesser extent, peanut butter. However there are ribbons of precise peanut butter all through. These bites are my favourite. There’s an enormous quantity of peanut butter style once you discover these hidden caches of chilly, stiff peanut butter that quickly soften and soften in your mouth. My solely grievance with this taste is that there is not fairly sufficient peanut butter. Sonia disagrees.

I might put this very excessive within the working for greatest gentle ice cream taste I’ve ever had, and for those who’re an ice cream hog like I’m, you are solely taking a look at 370 energy for the complete container. However, if I had been severely counting energy, I might most likely simply get a pint of Chubby Hubby and eat it in two sittings as an alternative of 1. Nonetheless this will get a giant thumbs up from me. 4 stars.

Three from Sonia, who insists the Cookies & Cream one is best.
