Ben & Jerry's Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream
with a graham cracker swirl
[Original 2010 Review] Sorry it took so long to post this. I picked it up with the new B&J Carrot Cake flavor but went with that review first... actually, as I sit here with my Pumpkin Cheesecake aftertaste, I can discern some of the same spices that showed up in the carrot cake. Interesting.
Opinions? Well my daughter was not a fan, but I didn't expect her to be. My wife is a big fan of all the other cheesecake flavors and this one is no exception. Me? Well, it's definitely got some strong points. The pumpkin flavor is natural but not potent (which I appreciate). The swirl is excellent, but there needs to be more of it. It's got a nice creamy texture which reminded me a bit of the DQ Pumpkin Pie blizzard. The cheesecake flavor isn't huge, it's kind of hiding underneath. You take a bite and that cheezy-ness is there in the background, adding just enough to the texture to make you think "I think I'll leave this one for my wife" hehehe I wasn't nailed by a pure cheese taste at any point, but it's definitely there overall.
So, it's well made and it almost won me over, but I doubt I'll scoop anymore.
