Blue Bunny Double Chocolate Sedona Frozen Yogurt Granola Sandwiches

2012 Update: Looks like Sedona is gone from supermarket shelves and the Blue Bunny website.

The review that's been 5 weeks in the making : you wondered about it, you waited for it, you googled it, and now here it is : Let's delve back into the creative new Sedona line from Blue Bunny! I'd say my overall expectations are decent for this one, though I am a little afraid of what the chocolate has in store for me.
As soon as you unwrap it, you'll be greeted by a very friendly chocolate milk scent, but it looks a little suspicious doesn't it? The granola is fine looking, but the chocolate looks ...cheap? refrozen? a bit off? But ice cream is 1 part looks and 4-5 parts taste, so let's move on.

You may remember I mentioned a "strange" aftertaste when I first tried the Sedona line. The good news is that I think it was a fluke because it didn't hit me tonight. Maybe it was me, or maybe I picked a bum box last time, but we are good to go.

I actually really enjoyed my new little chocolate friend. As soon as I started the taste test I was surprised at how well the chocolate milk flavor combined with the granola. It's a surprisingly smooth treat really, and if I had any more room left, I definitely would have went with a second one (for blogging purposes ofcourse).

I know I probably sound like a blue bunny commercial, but it really seems like they put the time in to get the granola texture just right and I think that's what really sells it. Not too hard, not too soft, and it's got a nice middle of the road flavor. It even seems like they've taken the time to get the yogurt/granola ratio just right, well, at least for a fan of ice cream. Nice job Blue Bunny.

On Second Scoop: I tried a second one after attempting to eat a Kemp's Frozen Yogurt Parfait. The Kemp's made me really appreciate the tastiness of the Sedona.
