Ok, technically I've already had my first scooping like two weeks ago and forgot to write my comments down. Basically, I really liked B&J's key lime pie ice cream but was overpowered by Edy's froyo version. This one falls in the middle of those two. It's not overpowering, but it just wasn't really hooking me in either. There was a realness and freshness to the B&J and... well, I guess I can't expect the same pop at less than half the price. It's not bad, it's just that B&J was closer to the flavor and texture of the actual pie.
On Second Scoop: As always, I need to clarify that this is not a bad ice cream, it's just not something I usually look for but I bought it anyway with hopes of greatness. There are tons of graham pieces, but they're addition is a bit flatter than I hoped. They just don't have that gritty, sugary impact that I adore. I actually do like the pureness of the swirl, but it's thin and spread out. Sure it keeps from overpowering you, but I think the pop of the swirl is what I wanted in the base as well. Something still isn't clicking for me.
On Third Scoop: Yeah, I couldn't help myself. I've been thinking about making Key Lime Pie Oreos since episode 15 of the Nosh Show. The Golden Oreos definitely help complete the overall flavor profile.
Verdict? not bad, I mean that
Buy Again? nah
