Jeni's Brambleberry Crisp Ice Cream
Buttery, oven-toasted oat streusel and a striking, sweet-tart “brambleberry” jam
of blackberries and black currants layered throughout vanilla ice cream
I don't really notice the black currants to be honest. I know what they taste like but they're just not registering with me. Lastly you get the oat struesal which is pretty lackluster in the flavor department. While the ingredients lists a various amount of spices involved, all I'm tasting is pure oats. The texture is nice, simulating a crunchy oat topping to any normal crisp. I'd just like there to be more depth of flavor going on with it.
The main problem here is that unlike the other bases I've had from Jeni's is that the flavor isn't that remarkable. I've had better from brand such as Talenti, Graeter's and even The Gelato Fiasco. The mix-ins don't really make up for it either. Sure blackberries and black currants are something you don't come around every day but the latter makes no appearance at all. That and the oat stuesal was as if someone has forgotten to add the spices to it.
Once again, there's no way I could justify this ice cream or even this brand for that matter at their normal price. $6 is even way too high for it when other brands are doing the same business practice and putting out superior products for cheaper. Being a business major, I just don't understand Jeni's rational for their pricing structure. This will more than likely be the last Jeni's product I pay for with me own money because I'd rather be using those coupons elsewhere.
Verdict? An overall good ice cream but not worth the price by any means.
Buy Again? Nope
