Wegman's Nutter Batter Ice Cream
Vanilla ice cream with peanut butter dough, caramel & peanut butter swirls
If you think about it, how often do you see vanilla ice cream with a peanut butter swirl? I mean, there is zero chocolate involved with this ice cream. Vanilla is a very... reserved choice if you ask me, but I do like the logic behind it. Rather than being like every other flavor on the market, they are instead going to give us a mild base to showcase the swirl and bits.
The swirl? Yeah, it's good. It's a bit salty, but not too much so. It's got a fairly natural vibe to it without being like a straight, bland peanut oil flavor. It's definitely peanut butter, it's thick, and it's very enjoyable.
Then, there are the fun dough chunks everywhere. For me it's not an added blast of peanut butter flavor, but it's a great textural change. How can you not love these chunky bits mixing with the nice flavor coming from the swirl? Answer, you can't.
In the half pint I ate, I only picked up the caramel once, and it was brief. I'm not even sure I should really comment on it except that I would be interested in studying the caramel/peanut butter dynamic more in the future. Yes, I should have kept digging for more, but it's not like I could have brought the ice cream in to the theatre with me, nor would it wait for me until after the movie was done.
Overall, yes, I like it, especially at the nice price of $2.69 for a premium pint. The vanilla ice cream is fine, but I do still question it's use here. I like the change of pace, but at the same time, I wonder how epic this would be with chocolate? Or would the chocolate somehow drown out the peanut butter dough? Questions, questions, questions, but who cares, I look forward to enjoying another of these pints again in the future.
Buy Again? Yeah
