Turkey Hill Banana with Peanut Butter ice cream
Cream, milk, sugar, banana, creamy peanut butter
Well that was a lackluster opening. Let's dig down for a bet...
Oh yeah, you guys want to know about the taste, don't you? Well I can honestly say that it has lived up to all the hype I have built up in my head. Heck, it even exceeds my expectations. I was worried about the banana base as I do with anything with a banana flavor but that was not necessary. Turkey Hill has managed to get the right amount of ripeness from their bananas making this one of the best banana bases I've had.
Since this is all-natural, I didn't have to worry about any of the off-putting artficialness that plagues other banana flavored things but I was worried it would be too ripe like Haagen-Daz or Talenti's. That's far from the case and I'd say this base is on par with Stewart's Monkey Business (that I review over here for our friend Junk Food Guy) which is my favorite banana ice cream to date.
The peanut butter is just how you'd expect it to be. Beyond amazing! I have praised Peanut Butter & Co. over and over again for their peanut butter normally and use it exclusively for all my sundaes. That all-natural peanut butter mixed with the banana base makes for a combination that Elvis would be proud of. Turkey Hill should really just ditch the peanut butter they use in their other flavors in favor of PB&Co.
Now you're wondering if this surpasses Monkey Business as my favorite banana ice cream and the answer is simply, no. The fudge swirl and fudge chunks make that flavor for me. However, this is easily my second favorite and the best limited edition flavor I've tried from Turkey Hill this year!
I want, no, scratch that, I NEED for there to be more collaborations between these two companies in the future. There's so many flavors of peanut butter that PB&Co. has in their arsenal that it would be a no-brainer to continue this partnership for years to come. From White Chocolate Wonderful mixed with strawberry jelly, pound cake and a vanilla bean base to Mighty Maple mixed with waffles in a buttery base, the combinations are endless!

Verdict? Buy this and stock up while you can!
Buy Again? I'm already on my second carton...
