Gifford's Maine Lobster Tracks Ice Cream
Vanilla ice cream, lobster-colored chocolate cups filled with caramel
all swirled with a unique éclair crunch
Hahahaha, those are some very red caramel cups.

Alright, I'm excavating a cup for melting on my taste buds. It's very mild, but there is a neat somethin-somethin to it. I try another... funny, it doesn't look like a gooshy center when you bite it in half. Let's try something else then. If you slice one open then technically it does appear to have some sort of filling. Sorry, I'm getting sidetracked.
Ok, I've had like four cups now, and they remind me of something... but I can't put my finger on it. Oh oh oh, it reminds me of the 10X sugar glaze my mom puts on her rosebud cookies. I know that's not a caramel flavor, but it's not bad either. I may not be able to describe it well, but that doesn't mean I don't like it. The difference is what makes them fun.
And my cup is empty. It was nothing crazy, but I wasn't expecting crazy either.
On Second Scoop: Wait, I could have sworn I wrote my comments during my second scooping... doh. Now I need to have a third scooping. It's definitely a safe (tame) flavor, but like most Gifford's flavors, I can see people digging it. The swirl is kind of different and the cups are kind of different, so I definitely see the amusement factor here. It's not epic, but it's not run of the mill either.
Verdict? Not crazy, but not bad (aka different enough)
Buy Again? Maybe
