Blue Bunny Super Chunky Cookie Dough
An Ice Cream Review

Over 3 years ago, I had Blue Bunny ice cream for the very first time. The blog was just two months old and I was a cranky, unsophisticated little spoon at the time because I was not nice to Super Chunky Cookie Dough at all. I don't know what I was thinking back then, but man, this stuff is good.

Super Chunk Cookie Dough is Cookie Dough Ice Cream with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Chunks, Cookie Dough Batter Ribbon and Chocolate Flakes. Did I say cookie dough enough for ya? My wife picked this up last week and I was like "eh, whatever". I've had a lot of great Blue Bunny treats since I first had this ice cream, but still, I wasn't that excited to see it again (correction: on occasion I have debated trying this one again)


Well, I got hungry Wednesday night and suddenly had the urge for cookie dough. I cracked the container open. Is that a saucey cookie dough swirl I see? I take a bite and it is a sinfully sweet cookie dough sugar rush. It's borderline too sweet, but it's riding that line with a taste that is making me scoop for more. Ohhh man, just give me mug of this stuff and I'll be happy (and quite possibly delirious).


Next I start aiming for the cookie dough bits. Sure, they look fairly standard in the penny test, but the secret here is a wonderful crunch factor. The center of the bit has a butter cookie like crunch that sets it apart from any other cookie dough bit I've ever had. How did I not notice this before? Talk about adding just a touch of crunch, very cool. My question now is how did they make it. Is it a small bit of cookie wrapped inside cookie dough? I just don't know, but I like it!

Oh, there's one more thing that I need to point out. My big complaint before was a butter like taste to the ice cream but now I don't even notice it. Not on the first scoop, and not even on the larger second scoop. Part of me wonders if maybe I got a container that was a little off last time? I mean I don't even remember seeing the swirl before. It's that, or maybe my tastebuds have matured? I don't know what it was, but Blue Bunny has definitely come out with a unique cookie dough flavor here. Awesome job.

Verdict?  Excellent sugar rush
Buy Again?  Yes!

This looks really good! Maybe Blue Bunny tweaked it a bit since the last time you had it.

I agree with you so much on this ice cream. I'm happy that this part of the slim offerings of blue bunny in my area even if it only comes in the personals size. That almost might be a blessing seeing I'd want to devour a lot of it at once given the opportunity.

I really wish I could find bluebunny personals in my area.

@Anon: maybe!

@Nick: ha, I was having trouble scooping the bowl without eating every other bite.

@Rodzilla: yeah, they have very inconsistant offerings around here, but at least I have some choices!

@rod,
my area just got personals and nothing else. We've just had their basic ice cream sandwiches until we got the personals. So hopefully this is a sign my area will realize how good blue bunny is.

Mm... that looks so good! I'd definitely try it, but I can't seem to find Blue Bunny anywhere near me!
