The following was one of four Hood Red Sox flavors announced at the end of 2007. Now we (a.k.a. me) need to keep in mind that this is what I call an "entry" level ice cream, or you might call it a budget ice cream. It's the kind of stuff you consider buying when you have to feed lots of people. I'm not trying to pick on it, I know a lot of people who are hooked on Hood, I'm just trying to paint a picture here.
Hood Red Sox Comeback Caramel Ice Cream
Chocolate Caramel Socks with thick caramel swirled in caramel flavored ice cream
Friendly's Caramelot from last weekend. It's similar, but there's something missing.
The problem with the socks is that they are so tiny they become a bit of a non factor. You get the little flavor hit, but it's a little hit, not enough to spice things up like with the bigger Friendly's cups. They definitely leave you wanting more (literally and figuratively).
Wow, that small serving went fast. Guess we'll have to try this again tomorrow!
On Second Scoop: I kind of neglected to analyze just the base flavor yesterday. Well, I did today, and saying it's caramel flavor is a bit of a stretch. There may be a hint of it in the base, but it's really weak. At least a vanilla base would have been more flavorful and taken this one up a notch. Thankfully the swirl is sweet enough and prevalent enough that you probably won't notice too much. It's an ok ice cream in need of a stronger base, and I've had worse, I'm just not feeling it. I want better... I want a bit more flavor... my wife just chimed in "at least it's not frozen dairy dessert". touché.
Buy Again? my wife says yes!
