Walgreens Rocky Road Ice Cream
Chocolate Ice Cream with Mini Marshmallows and Almonds
No no, I mean it's dangerous to be alone with a melting pint of tasty Walgreens Rocky Road ice cream in your car. Early this morning, I already knew I wanted ice cream, so I had my lunch around 11 so I could do an ice cream run later. I was tempted to give Meola's one more shot, but decided to make the 3 minute trip to Walgreens instead. I picked up Rocky Road and Waffle Cone, and after a quick debate, I cracked open the Rocky Road.
It's a very respectable take on Rocky Road. They do go with mini marshmallows instead of a marshmallow swirl, but they were small and fairly soft, so much so that they would actually slice in two as I scooped with my spoon. The peanuts are average tasting chunks, and the base chocolate is good. The ice cream was fairly soft and getting softer as I was eating, so stopping was a bit hard, but I did take a break. The goods are in the cafeteria fridge and I'll take them home later (hope I don't have to make any stops tonight)
On Second Scoop: Geez, I finally got to second scoop the Rocky Road. When I first had this ice cream, there was an underlying flavor that was bugging me a little, but I blew it off because overall I was enjoying myself. Well, the ice cream has set a bit, and that underlying flavor has gotten stronger. The base chocolate is now completely off with some kind of bizarre artificial taste that I do not appreciate. Usually second scoops are an improvement, but in this case, it's a downgrade. (I've always said I'm not a fan of little plasticy marshmallows in my ice cream, this is why)
