I adore Turkey Hill all natural ice cream,
I love their regular ice cream,
I like their light ice cream,
....I just can't get into their frozen dairy dessert.
Let's dig in and see if we can figure out why.
Well, that's pretty close to the picture on the container.
It looks like it should be tasty enough.
(that odd shadow is me, not the ice cream)
Let's take a nice close look at the swirl before we get started.
Sure looks like the same swirl I loved before.
Oh but I was wrong. Something is wrong with this ice cream and I just can't get myself to accept it. You know, even my daughter didn't finish her bowl and that never happens. Sure she ate 95% of it, but she's usually clanging her spoon for a good five minutes getting every last bit of ice cream out of her bowl and she didn't do that this time.
I wish I knew fancy words and terms and descriptions, but I don't, so we're going to call it funk. This ice cream has a funk and it's bugging me big time. One thing that is strange is the ingredient list: Milk, Cookie Swirl, Corn Syrup, Cookies, Sugar, Maltodextrin, Whey, Cream, blah blah blah. Is it just me, or does that seem weird? Maybe you could take it as a good sign that the cookie swirl is so prominent, I take it as something went horribly wrong.
Sorry for being vague, but this one is a big fail for me. I'm not even going to both eating any more of it, it's that bad in my book. I've got one more container of Stuff'd downstairs, and if that's a fail, I give up on Stuff'd completely. They have plenty of other good products, so why bother.
On Second Scoop (2014 Edition): I picked this up the other day and my wife and daughter have made very short work of the container, only leaving me about 5 bites for a second scoop. I was pretty harsh on this one, but it's only because I love cookies and cream so much. I just don't like the ultra soft texture and the underlying flavor borders on too sweet. On one hand there is this non-stop oreo flavoring to every bite, but to me it's just too much, it's too relentless and unbalanced. That all said, my daughter loved it and all the big cookie chunks in it. So take both opinions with a grain of salt and do what you must, but if you do it, try to do it on sale.
