Worst Flavor Ever

Dubba's Disclaimer: I'm always amazed at how many people find this post still. I literally wrote this on the day I started the blog (May 8th, 2008). Now we all have different tastes, and I pretty much never like cake flavored ice creams, so keep that in mind when reading this old post. Have a good day!

To me, it's wrong on so many levels to waste ice cream, never does it go in the trash.....except once. Yes, I committed the gravest of ice cream sins, I tossed the Ice Cream away and tried to wash away the experience as quickly as possible.
The culprit: Turkey Hill's Party Cake Ice Cream. One mine as well shove their face in a bucket of cheap cake frosting. This flavor was not only disappointing, but it was insulting. Who at Turkey Hill thought this could possibly taste good to all but a small portion of the population? Don't get me wrong, I believe that in general that Turkey Hill ice cream is up there with the rest of the mainstream ice creams (Breyer's, Dryer's/Edy's, etc), but man this was disgusting. I couldn't finish my bowl, let alone the container ...oh so sickenly sweet.

side note: I had an in depth discussion with Turkey Hill when this flavor came out (back in 2000 I believe). In return, I got some coupons and added to their calendar mailing list which I'm still on all these years later.

I like this cake ice cream alot. In fact I like nearly all cake ice creams and would venture to say it is one of the most popular flavors now adays.

Yes, cake flavored ice creams have come along way with Cold Stone having the most success, but by no means would I say they are one of the most popular flavors. I understand lots of people love it, and it tends to be a hit with the kids, but it has a long way to go before being ranked up there with say cookies n cream.

I agree with the reviewer. This ice cream is horrible as it's just overly sweetened vanilla ice cream. The cake pieces add no flavor to the overall taste. For the best cake flavored ice cream, try Blue Bunny because they did it right.

Ever think of committing yourself to an asylum?

Because you have to be insane or at least very hard to please to think this ice cream is "disgusting".

Ah, well, there's no accounting for taste, as the old saying goes...

have you ever considered that maybe you don't respect other peoples opinions?

This review (from half a decade ago) was the first time I had cake flavored ice cream. I love sweet, but flavors like go from borderline too much to overkill.

I hate most store available ice creams, I don't really like most turkey hill ice creams. I pretty much only eat Ben and Jerry's, but Party Cake is Awesome. I unfortunately don't eat some of the ingredients because they are so artificial and I wish they would make a more natural version of it but as far as taste goes, it is pretty much hands down top 10 store bought Ice creams I have ever had.
