Blue Bunny Chocolate Lovers Triple Chocolate Cake Ice Cream
Chocolate Ice Cream with Fudge Chocolate Cake Pieces
and Ribbons of Thick, Chocolate Frosting
I wandered down the aisle looking for some chocolate ice cream to celebrate National Chocolate Ice Cream Day, but to really celebrate, I figured it had to be something new. Lucky for me, Blue Bunny's Chocolate Lovers Triple Chocolate Cake premium ice cream was sitting there waiting for me. It says Chocolate Lovers, so how more fitting can it get? This is one of the four new flavors endorsed by Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman.
Now let's step back for a second and re-exam the name Triple Chocolate Cake. We've got the chocolate base ice cream which is fairly standard Blue Bunny chocolate. We've also got the frosting swirl which works great with the base. Third is cake bits, but there is a part of me that says you don't need them. To be honest, my daughter didn't even eat all of her cake bits, though she did enjoy the ice cream as a whole. I'm not saying they are bad because they are way better than the ones in the Chocolate Fudge Brownie Breyers BLASTS, I just want to stress that the frosting is the star here.
So, as ruler and emperor of National Ice Cream Holidays, I hereby declare Blue Bunny's Triple Chocolate Cake Ice Cream as the "official" ice cream of Chocolate Ice Cream Day 2011.
Buy Again? Sure
On Second Scoop: I hate to say it, but I was wrong about this flavor. I didn't get home 'til after 7, it was way too hot for normal food, so I scooped myself a small bowl of this stuff and it was really good. In fact, I had a second small bowl to chase the first. Do you want to know what sold me on this flavor tonight? The cake bits. Oh the frosting swirl was working the room, but it felt like I was getting two cake bites in every scoop and it was really working for me. Nice job on this one Blue Bunny.
On Third Scoop: It's been a few weeks now and I just finished off a bowl of this most excellent ice cream. The thing that got me excited this time? The wonderful layers of chocolate frosting. I didn't get many cake bits this time and I didn't care. Just keep laying that wondering frosting on my spoon.
