Sam's Choice Coffee & Donuts Ice Cream
Coffee ice cream with swirls of icing and donut pieces
I mean come on, just look at that description. The potential for greatness is high and I was impressed with their more budget friendly Great Value line not too long ago as well.
There's one major problem though and that is the donuts. These things are straight up terrible. Nothing about them even reminds me of a doughnut to be honest. The beignets in NOLA's version were soft with a crisp, flakey exterior to them. That's not the case at all here. The donuts are basically really hard chunks of overcooked dough to me. Heck, one of them went all Captain Crunch on me and tore up the roof of my mouth. That is such a shame too because the combination of the milky coffee base and the sugary swirl are pretty awesome.
If they were to have put in donuts that were at least soft this would've been a winner. These are a disgrace to the sacred name of donuts and Wal-Mart should be ashamed of thinking they'd be worthy of being in ice cream. Don't get me wrong though, the concept is something I'm 100% behind and here's hoping we see more underutilized baked goods being used in the near future by more competent companies.
Verdict? The main component was the main downfall
