Yuengling's Black & Tan Ice Cream
A Swirl of Rich Belgian Chocolate Ice Cream and Salty Caramel Ice Cream
I was hoping for an awesome opening no shot, but no matter.
Quality is not an issue here. I grabbed myself a fresh quart and it's paying off. This isn't a dense super premium like B&J and H-D, but it's definitely a well made mainstream ice cream. It's soft and creamy from waiting in line and picture time, but it's not gummy or fake. I see now why it has a higher price tag despite Yuengling's seemingly simple flavor line up.
Ok, I'm really glad I finally picked this up. Second scooping should be interesting.
On Second Scoop: So I've had this two more times and it's not bad. Saying that the flavors completely cancel out was probably a bit much, but I stand by the overall sentiment. The flavor on your spoon depends greatly on what the ratios are. There are moments of a fun chocolate, but there are also lingerings of a bold caramel. If you get say 3/4 caramel, then it dominates. If you get over half chocolate, that mellows things out. I'm just not sure if I want to call this flavor combo interesting or strange. It's not the sweet buttery caramel that you'd expect from a candy, it's saltier, and has more bite. I know, bite doesn't explain the flavor. It's kind of like the strength of Talenti, but it's not exactly Talenti either. Similar but different. Would mix-ins help? maybe. I guess I could try some on the final scooping.... nope, finally scooping was by itself. This is definitely another flavor that grows on you as you get use to the combination.
Verdict? definitely not a run of the mill combo
Buy this flavor again? only a rare occasion
Buy this brand Again? yes
