Red Velvet Cake Frozen Dairy Dessert with
Red Velvet Cake Pieces & Cream Chese Frosting Swirl
As for the taste, this stuff is sweet. Nowhere near the level of Ben & Jerry’s but it’s something to be aware of. Even with all the sweetness, this is the most authentic tasting version I’ve had. The base has hints of cocoa as well as cream cheese. The sweetness does dull it a bit but you do get a red velvet cake vibe. This is only amplified by the mix-ins. Friendly’s doesn’t mess around when it comes to their red velvet cake chunks because these things are massive and everywhere. Like it’s hard to not get some cake in every one of your spoonfuls everywhere. My gripe with cake in ice cream is that it tends to be dry and crumbly. That happens a bit here but not offensively. These chunks actually retain a fair amount of moisture and with the crumble remind me more of a crumb cake. They definitely have that trademark cocoa flavor you associate with red velvet which is always a plus.
Now the cream cheese swirl isn’t as abundant as the cake pieces but what it lacks in quantity, it makes up with in flavor. This swirl packs a cheesy punch but not overwhelmingly so. It’s at the right level to let you know it’s there but not enough to overpower the other components. Obviously the best bites are when you have all of the components on one spoonful. When that happens, I thought I was eating a slice of red velvet cake.
I know I sound redundant but up until now all red velvet flavors have been underwhelming. Friendly’s is doing it right and they’re making it happen with a FDD. This might be the first time I’ve truly enjoyed a FDD and would consider buying it again. My hat is off to you, Friendly’s. Now go make this into a real ice cream flavor so I don't have to say I liked a FDD.
Verdict? Authentic Red Velvet Cake in a FDD
Buy Again? I guess there’s a first for everything
