Edy's Limited Edition
Apple Pie Ice Cream Review
I've been meaning to broaden my fruit-based horizons, and I finally got the chance as I spied a fresh batch of Edy's Apple Pie at the store yesterday. They looked like they might be freezer burned, but I knew I had to try it, so I picked the best looking one and headed home.
Since it's a frozen dairy dessert, and not true ice cream, it has trouble freezing and was still mushy when I tried it about an hour after getting home, but guess what? It's good! I really like it. It's a light apple ice cream with small chunks of apples and pie crust and it works! Not too sweet, not too bland. I think I might have to try some other fruit flavors now.
I actually like the warm mushy texture, it gives the whole thing a cool whip feeling. Mmmmm, bet this would taste great next to a slice of ice cold apple pie (sorry, I don't do warm pies, I like 'em icy cold, just like my ice cream). Make sure you give it a try since it has a limited fall run only.
On Second Scoop: Well, the ice cream has refrozen. While it still tastes pretty much the same, the consistency has gotten kind of rubbery. It's not awful, but it is a bit disappointing.
