Edy's / Dreyer's Luscious Red Velvet Cake Grand Ice Cream
Red Velvet ice cream with a cream cheese frosting swirl and red velvet cake pieces
I take my first bite: yeah, it's got that cake flavor tingle. I take my second bite: and there's the cream cheese. Hmmm, yeah, this one tastes exactly like I expect it too. Nothing fancy going on here. (but to be honest, it's so pink, I almost think I taste strawberries). It's cake flavor, red velvet more or less, and it's not super strong like B&J's version and it's not weak like the Blue Bunny version. I'm thinking we should call that a win for Edy's.
On Second Scoop: So there's nothing particular wrong with this product, no real compliants, but you guys know I'm not a huge cake flavor fan. I have moments, but nothing serious. I wound up finishing my first bowl with some rice krispies mixed in, and my second run in became this breakfast sundae. I did have a bit more before writing this post and all I can say is that it tastes exactly like you would expect it to. Yes, there should be way more cake bits (they're nothing great, kind of dry, kind of scarce), and the swirl adds a cheesecake flavor when you find some of it, but like there's nothing really here for me to say, sorry. If you dig red velvet or cake ice creams, you'll like this, no worries.
Verdict? middle of the road flavor should work for the right crowd
Buy Again? if my wife wants me to
