I know it’s hard to see them but do you notice those white dots? Chocolate Shoppe has once again thought outside of the box. Instead of using just normal crushed up Oreo wafers, they seem to have added little balls of Oreo filling as well. This is definitely a unique idea and I applaud Chocolate Shoppe for their creativity. This actually makes the base have more of a cream flavor to it as well as adds in the missing bitterness in certain bites. When everything is combined, you get one of the best cookies and cream experiences I have had. To say that with a coffee based ice cream is a big deal and now I'm excited just to see how "Ultimate" their other flavor is!
Just like the flavor, the wafers texture is soft like they had been dunked in milk. While there were no intact pieces of cookies with cream, the base more than makes up for it. While harder to see than in the Espresso, the little balls of oreo filling do make an appearance here as well amping things up.
Putting “Ultimate” in the name of you product is pretty bold but I don’t think that does this flavor justice. This is the end all, be all of cookies and cream ice cream. This is the flavor all cookies and cream ice creams aspire to be. If you have access to this flavor, I envy you and strongly suggest you go out and get yourself some right now. Seriously, stop reading, put on some pants and get in your car!
Verdict? I’m ruined when it comes to all Cookies and Cream flavors.
Buy Again? No question to either… Wait, they make another one with their Zanzibar ice cream?!?! Must. Have. Now.
