When they say swirl, they mean SWIRL
Getting a taste of the base alone, it’s just as good as B&J’s even possibly better. Sweet cream is just as versatile as a vanilla and gives some extra depth to the product. It also serves as a perfect base for the mix-ins in this one. First let’s talk about the sea salt caramel swirl, this stuff is exactly what I want when it comes to sea salt caramel. The sea salt amplifies the buttery caramel and takes it to a whole new level. The caramel is also very gooey which is always a plus in my book.
Now I would be content with just those two components but Homemade decided to add these little nuggets of perfection to the mix. First of all, just look at how adorable they are. They look like the people at Homemade Brand took a shrink ray to a box of valentine’s chocolates. Secondly, they just taste amazing. According to the website they are sea salt caramel truffles but I feel like these are filled with a much sweeter caramel. These two caramels contrast nicely though and the chocolate shell adds some texture as well as some needed bitterness to balance the caramel inside. I kind of want a box of these caramels just to enjoy normally. Yeah, this is easily one of my favorite ice creams of all time now and I really wish this wasn’t just a limited edition flavor. This isn’t just some brand jumping on the bandwagon; they’re the one behind the wheel. If you see this in stores, I’d advise you picking up a container or 5.
On Further Scoops: I forgot to check who made this one. Well Kyle M., if you were a lady, I’d ask you to marry me. Speaking of marriage, I officially want this flavor served at my wedding. Hell, I want this flavor served at every monumental event in my life!
Verdict? Sea Salt + Caramel is always a win. This ice cream perfected that formula.
Buy Again? If stores around me carried it, this would easily be a regular purchase.
