Turkey Hill Pennsylvania Dutch Pretzel Ice Cream
brown sugar flavored ice cream with choco pretzels and a pretzel swirl
Like most Turkey Hill Limited Edition flavors, this one goes outside of their mainstream comfort zone and delivers us something unique. That said, this one is way different even among it's seasonal peers.
Oh yeah, I don't taste brown sugar at all but I do taste pretzel and I haven't even hit the swirl or the chunks or anything yet. The base is nothing but a salty awesome reminder of the mighty pretzel cone (something I've never seen outside of Pennsylvania). It's so salty! Wow, I'm dumbfounded and shocked. I don't know what else to do except keep scooping.
My "tiny taste" quickly turned into a full serving. I struck a vein of pretzel swirl and I'm in pretzel crumb heaven. It's like being a little kid again. This swirl is amazing, just amazing. How can it still be fresh and dry? Some magically wonderful person has crushed pretzel cones into a swirl that will not fail. I don't mean to be repetitive, but how in the world have they pulled this off? I've said before that Turkey Hill is all kinds of main stream goodness and this just proves it again.
On Second Scoop: Hi Y'all. I'm back in reality now. I think I got a little carried away with my first taste testing. I've been craving a pretzel cone for 15 or 20 years now and eating this last night was like being a kid again. There has to be some food that reminds you of your childhood and this was it for me. Pretzel cones are something I've built up in my head and I guess I went a little crazy.
Will I have this one again tomorrow despite having 5 more Wonka flavors to try? Yeah, it's possible. My only real fear for this one is that it's definitely going to be too much for some people. If you can sit and eat 3 or 4 servings of pretzels, you'll love this. If you think pretzels are overpowering after just a few of them, stay clear of this flavor.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane Turkey Hill, it was greatly appreciated.
Verdict? Unique, plain and simple
Buy Again? without a doubt
Dubba's Note: This is technically the March 2012 Flavor of the month.You probably won't find it at this point, but make sure you look for it when it comes back in June 2013 --- I had it again in 2013 and I still like it, but I'd love to seem them experiment more with different base flavors to see what other kind of trouble they can cause ---- No pretzel flavor for 2014, sorry!
