Steve's Sweet Corn & Blackberry Preserves Ice Cream
sweet corn ice cream swirled with blackberry preserves (#83)
I mean blackberries are awesome but sweet corn ice cream? That's something I never imagined seeing available outside of specialty scoop shops. I know Jeni's offers a similar flavor but at this point in time, I trust Steve's a lot more when it comes to making ice cream.
Well umm, this ice cream certainly interesting to say the least. My taste buds are having a hard time registering what exactly is going on. The consistency is standard from Steve's and is something I always look forward to in one of their pints. The flavor on the other hand is much harder to explain.
My tastebuds are confused because they're not quite sure if they like what they're experiencing or not. The flavor is great but the texture of the corn "flesh" gives just throws everything out of whack. The best way I could describe it is if you've ever had canned corn and one of the kernels were devoid of the filling and all you had was the outside to bite in. It's not pleasant then and it's just way too weird for me now.
While I don't see myself repurchasing thing one, I would recommend it to others just for the experience alone. Others might not mind the texture of the corn and some might agree with me. At least you can say that you had some fruit and veggies for dessert ;)
Verdict? Weird but good but still weird
Buy Again? There's only so much weirdness you can tolerate
