Jon Donaire Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Cake
I'm guessing you can't read that description so here it is "Creamy vanilla ice cream loaded with chunks of chocolate sandwich cookies, on a fudge-topped chocolate cookie crust, topped with whipped topping, more cookie pieces & chocolate flavored drizzle". 40oz total or enough to completely fill 3 people 3 times.
While the description is blurry, you still might have noticed that the best by date is Jan 12 2013. It's not that this cake expires quickly, it's that we bought it over the summer. Whoops.
Sounds good right? But do you see something else in the photo? down near the bottom? It's the fudge topping on the crust! Very cool Mr. Donaire, always taking things up a notch. When you have such a loaded description on a cover, it's easy to lose track of an ingredient whether it be physically or verbally, but it's here in full effect and what a fun ingredient it is. It's a rich, thick fudge that adds a flavor pop that lets you know this is a cake and not just another bowl of ice cream.
First scoop, second scoop, third scoop, they were all tasty. Even at the end of it's shelf life, this one was still putting smiles of our faces despite a little bit of old funk here and there. I don't think Jon Donaire has ever let us down and I look forward to whatever they have in store for 2013.
Buy Again? Yup
