This is Edy's new Slow Churned Triple Cookie Fudge Sundae light ice cream. Now I bet you are thinking "Hey, wait, I thought TCFS was one of those frozen dairy dessert fun flavors? yeah, it is, and it comes in a red container doesn't it?" Well, you are right. There is a 140 calorie fun flavor version, and then there is the 110 calorie slow churned version. The slow churned seems like the healthier option, so let's crack it open.
I hate to say it, but at first glance this ice cream looks kind of fun. There is a certain wow factor here until reality sets in. What I learned after my first bowl was that even though shoving 3 flavors in a thin container may look neat, it is horribly impractical. It's not like you can just scoop out your favorite flavor or go spelunking for cookie dough bits. It's all or nothing!
I made myself a bowl and while I don't have a problem with what I'm eating, it's shockingly boring. The initial wow factor quickly wears off as you desperately look for brownie or cookie dough bits. It's ice cream and that's it. No flavors are standing out, nor are any textures. This ice cream is surprisingly dull. It's a shame they didn't go a bit more crazy... heck, maybe have one of the flavors be strawberry based.
On Second Scoop: I've already gone back for the second scoop and it wasn't any better. It's not a bad ice cream, there is just nothing special to it. You say triple sundae and my brain takes me away to a scoop shop, but then I have my first bite and I'm right back to reality, in my kitchen, with a bowl of nuttin' special. No flavors stand out, there aren't enough bits and chunks, and it really just is. I even went so far as to make a shake on the third scoop, but that was boring too.
Verdict? fun to look at first, boring to eat
Buy Again? nah
Dubba's Notes: I don't want to take total blame here for not noticing their new 2011 products, it's not like Edy touts the new flavors.... Ok, found a Nestle PDF and it says Mud Pie was also new this year... oh, and a key lime pie froyo, interesting.
