Friendly's Forbidden Chocolate Ice Cream

Ok, this is going to be more of a PSA than a review.... ok, actually it's going to be more of a wish list item then a PSA. See, I was busy toiling away with the breakfast sundae project when I realized I had never actually posted anything about the ice cream I was using.

Friendly's Forbidden Chocolate Ice Cream

That's right, I've never mentioned Friendly's version of dark chocolate ice cream on the blog before. It's not new or anything, but now that the slower winter months are upon us, seems like a fine time to mention it. Friendly's makes a fine regular chocolate ice cream, so this is just it's slightly darker, slightly more dry cousin. It's nothing drastic, nothing that will scare you away, but it's distinctly different if you are looking for something to change up your regular sundaes. It's worthy of a purchase if you don't have access to any of the other dark chocolate flavors that we have reviewed.

And my wish? Well, when I was building this mini candy cane Oreo sundae, I stumbled upon something. The forbidden chocolate ice cream really makes the Oreos pop. I was really impressed with how well the two items played off each other, so here is my request. Can we get a Forbidden cookies & cream flavor? Or how about just a forbidden cookie flavor that uses wafers instead of the whole cookie? Mmmm, I can dream can't I?

Aside from Friendly's Chocolate Marshmallow this is also one of my faves. Thanks for mentioning it and I love the sundae!

We just finished up this flavor and made sundaes. Try it with broken up Pepperidge Farm mini-candy cane milano cookies. Very good!

This is actually my favorite supermarket chocolate ice cream, and I actually prefer it to the "super-premiums". It's just a great strong chocolate flavor without being too dark or rich.

I soften the chocolate and then stir in mini-chocolate chips. Delicious.
