Back? Good. Their site is a little behind so it only lists 12 of their 22 robust flavors, but you get the idea --- UPDATE: You can see (and order) most of their flavors on icecreamsource.com
I know it sounds like I'm exaggerating, but I'm looking at the pints in my freezer and I don't even know where to start. For example, there's a peach melba flavor. Ok, sounds straight forward right? It's probably vanilla ice cream with peaches, but no no no my friend. There's also almonds and a raspberry swirl! Who thinks of these things? I know I don't. How am I ever going to run an ice cream company when there are so many creative and talented people out there on this fine planet of ours?
Oh whatever, I don't actually care. I'm hungry, let's dig in!
Oh man! I'm still digging and the piece still ain't moving. It's solid and it's not going anywhere.
How weird, if I think about eggs, I taste the eggs in the "hint of custard". If I forget about it, then I don't. I don't think I've ever tasted such a strong egg flavor in an ice cream (except in maybe an egg nog flavor). It's always funny when there are so many flavors going on that you can easily get lost in one or the other.
There aren't many white chocolate chunks. I usually complain about a lack of chips, but this one is plenty complicated enough without them. Oh sure, a nice coating of white chocolate sauce would be awesome right now to balance things out, bring a sweet balance to our treat, but hey, we're trying to be different here.
Wow, the bourbon sauce adds a funky flavor that I can not describe because I don't drink. I want to say it reminds me of like a soda where there is too much syrup. There's almost a tingling to it, though bite is probably a better word. This is one funky pint and I have been at a complete loss of words to accurately describe it. Sure I've been trying, but my simple palette is no match for such a unique flavor.
On Second Scoop: I need to man up and admit that this pint is of the alcoholic persuasion. I keep trying to think of what it reminds me of (licorice? anise?), but the truth is that it has that mild alcoholic burn to it and it seems to be omnipresent. I thought maybe the bourbon was in the swirl, but I haven't seen much of the swirl but the bourbon is all I taste. Sometimes it's got that banana bread vibe (sans bananas), but other times it's just the mild burn. I guess the big news here is that I'm not scared off like I was with bonaroo buzz. It's strange to me, but it's still good ice cream and I still want to finish it... oh I want to finish it. I could have easily polished this off on the first scooping because of it's uniqueness. Nice job New Orleans, let's see what else you've got.
Verdict? Wow, now that was unique.
