At first I thought I got sent the wrong product but once I got a closer look, I saw that it was in fact one of the Cedar Crest flavors. Well let’s just say I can see why they decided to rebrand their ice cream. While the turtle is adorable, the whole pint design is unappealing to me. The colors aren’t the most appetizing and I never liked representing the ingredients involved in cartoon form on the package. I like how the new packaging shows a scoop of the ice cream and the color scheme is far superior. I’m glad Cedar Crest decided to make the change because if I was to see these in the ice cream isle, I more than likely would have passed them up. Okay, enough with the packaging let’s talk about the ice cream.
My favorite part of this pint is the pecans. They’re literally everywhere and it’s hard to get a spoonful without one in it. I love pecans so this perfect for me. They add a good amount of crunch and, well, just taste like pecans. They aren’t the best pecans I’ve had but they’re far from the worse. It’s too bad that the caramel was so weak in this one. This would’ve been an awesome flavor even with the iciness that my pint experienced.
Verdict? Amp up the caramel, Cedar Crest!
