mint Talenti. I wonder? Could it be possible? OH YEAH! I take a big whiff and it's got that same distinct smell as the Talenti. I dive in to sample and they nailed it. This is that same great mint butter cream flavoring I fell in love with before. I take one bite and instantly I'm that 7 year old wondering around my grandparents house in my Sunday shoes and my Christmas vest patiently waiting for a glorious turkey dinner to be served. Oh the childhood awkwardness.... oh the awesome butter cream mints, and cookies, and turkey, and whatever vegetables I was avoiding on the table.
If I didn't know better, I would swear there is a bit of sugary grit to this flavor, but it's probably just the little chocolate bits floating about.... no, there's definitely something inside here... Wait, HA! It's the white swirl!! Man that's cool! It's some kind of sugary, gritty, minty coolness. Such a nice touch. What an epic swirl. I can't put this one down.
I love New Orleans ice cream company when they bring their unique touch to a flavor like this. My mind is blown away by the crunchy mint swirl. They've taken those butter cream mints from my childhood and turned them into a swirl! I gotta call it. This is my new favorite mint ice cream.
On Second Scoop: I've been thinking about this one all day.... oh yeah, it's as good, if not better on the second try. Man this is crazy good. The cookie bits are great, the flakes are nice, the base is velvety goodness... and then the swirl just sends this one to the moon. Over 800 reviews on this blog and I don't think we've ever had a swirl like this. Awesome job guys, awesome job.
Verdict? Love it!
