I haven't had any Breyers on the blog in awhile, so a few shopping trips ago I picked up their official take on Snickers Ice Cream. I've had the awesome Snickers Ice Cream Brownie, and nothing beats a Snickers Ice Cream Bar, but it's time to taste test some mass produced Snickers Ice Cream.
Crunch 'n Munch. I take a few more bites as I examine my prey. There are several thin caramel swirls to be seen, and all of the big brown spots you see are coated peanuts. Unfortunately, those tiny brown spots you see are my beloved Snickers "Chunks" which have been blended into oblivion.
I like the way that tiny bits of Snickers add an overall mild snickers flavor to the base vanilla ice cream. However, I would appreciate it if they would go back when the mixing was done and actually add in some real Snickers chunks like they promised me on the label. Yes I understand that frozen Snickers chunks are quite hard, and probably a mild dental work hazard, but a promise is a promise. I want Snickers!
The caramel swirl is just fine. It's a fairly mild flavor by itself. I didn't really get an overly salty or artificial flavor from it. Ice Cream Texture is also good and way better than that funky stuff I found in Edy's MAXX. This flavor may have chunkless shortcomings, but at least it's made like a real ice cream.
At the moment I'm going to rate this one as decent, but not as good as I wanted it to be. Sometimes extreme hunger clouds my judgement a little, so I'll head into the second scoop expecting a serving that has more mild flavor than I had hoped for. Plus, I'll still be digging for Snicker Chunks, though I know I probably won't find any.
On Second Scoop: I went to reach for some tasty morning waffles and decided to have a few bites of Snickers instead. Problem is, I still don't really think it tastes like snickers. The base does have a mild snickers flavor, but at least if you get some of the swirl, you're easily transported to caramel land. There's not even a snickers after taste. Oh well, it's not bad, it's just not really Snickers.
Update: This flavor still lives on as Breyer's Blasts Snickers Caramel Swirl Chunk.
