Pierre's Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream
I try to do the sniff test... it sure smells like pumpkin pie.
The spices? Well, they are definitely there, but I'm debating how to describe them. Part of the problem is that spice balance is very much a regional / personal preference kind of thing, so no two pumpkin ice cream products will ever be the same. I just wish I knew my spices better so I could tell you which one is jumping to the front here. It's defintely not cinnamon, maybe it's the nutmeg? It's not far ahead from the others, but I'm having trouble quantifying everything at the moment. I get this feeling like the spices are trying to burst through here and overpower, but they are being held back.
You know what, I'll be back for a second scoop later.
On Second Scoop: Yeah, it's a little too strong on the nutmeg for my likely (or maybe it's the molasses), I'd prefer a bit more of a sweet pumpkin kick if I had my choosing. It kind of hits you with the milk and then the nutmeg is on the backside. They probably should have called this one pumpkin spice instead of pumpkin pie, especially since there is no crust component. You know what? I think I may have this one as a nice pumpkin milkshake when we get back from Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.
I haven't made that shake yet... but I made this instead.
Verdict? fine product but not quite my style
Buy Again? I need my sweet crust kick!
