Just shy of a month ago, Nick was the first to tweet a pic of Turkey Hill's newest creation, Limited Edition Whoopie Pie ice cream. Who knew Lancaster was the home of the original Whoopie Pie? Ok, technically Maine wants to lay claim to this too. Look, the Penn Dutch don't mess around with food. Seriously? have you had shoo fly pie? and who rocks the American pretzel world like the Penn Dutch? Exactly. Don't make me go on... seriously, dont make me go on, I'll just get hungry again.
Sorry, sidetracked. Whoopie Pie ice cream is Chocolate ice cream with whoopie pie pieces and creamy filling swirl. I saw it for the very first time today, but even though the freezer is full of (melted?) ice cream, I happily picked up a container and headed home.
Ooooooooooooooo, look at all that cream filling swirl!
Oh, it looks like liquid Marshmallow!
NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM
and that was the end of that puddle of swirl. Ohhhh, so dangerously sweet, almost too much, yet so sugary in it's goodness. I can't say I recommend doing that on a regular basis, but I have to test each ingredient in the name of science! Actually, to be honest, it reminds me alot the swirl in H-D Rocky Road. Both are sweet, both are very liquidy, but instead of a marshmallow flavor, this is distinctly more of a cream filling flavor.
High on a sugar rush, I plowed through my small bowl like there was no tomorrow. I can't say that I particularly tasted the whoopie pie bits, but their texture was unmistakeable. Have no fear Nick, this definitely isn't just some cake bits thrown in for "fun", these are indeed whoopie pie bits.
Last of all is our ice cream base. It's the nice chocolate ice cream base that we've all come to depend on over the years. Overall it was tasty though I am curious to see how it tastes once it has refrozen... but that's gonna have to wait til tomorrow. Right now, it's time to enjoy the fact that cable is working again!
On Second Scoop: I went back for my second scoop and after 48 hours this ice cream was still quite soft. The swirl is so sugary, I really shouldn't be surprised. That said, the ice cream was now just solid enough that the whoopie pie bits spread out their flavor much more evenly. There was no mistaking the very sweet whoopie pie flavor. Nice job throwing out something different Turkey Hill!
