Turkey Hill Chocolate Malt Chip Ice Cream

[New for 2014] Well, I think I've officially lost my limited edition Turkey Hill flavor contest with Nick, but that doesnt mean I cant make a decent showing by bringing the score to 5 vs 7. That's right, I've got my hands on their elusive malt flavor... and by elusive I mean every malt flavor made by anyone seems to get cancelled sooner or later.

Well, that's unexpected. I thought the malt balls might be small, but that's just silly! Now I am a little afraid, but I'm more excited because I'm having thoughts of their getrude hawk flavor.

But then as I take my first scoop, I start thinking "hey, they're arent any malt balls in here!"

I take my first bite... and then I take several more because I'm not sure how I feel about these malt chips. Overall, I think I like them. It's like they diced up bunch o' crunch and blended it in to the malty ice cream. And I think I like the easy melting malty base because it reminds me of a milkshake. But the overall product, I'm still debating....

Ahhh, why am I debating this? It should be a slam dunk really. A different kind of base, a unique mix-in, should be an easy thumbs up but something isn't clicking for me. Man I want some chocolate covered pretzels right now. Alright, the second scoop is the way to go before I make my final decision.

On Second Scoop: Funny, I could have sworn I wrote down my thoughts during my second scooping.. oh well, technically this is my third scooping . I just don't know what to make of these chips, I don't know if they are a let down or if I'm just too hung up on the fact that they aren't mini malted milk balls here. Actually, you know what, I just came up with a conclusion. I'm sitting here thinking about buying another container just so I can debate it some more... so technically I think that qualifies as an endorsement.

Verdict?  unexpected
Buy Again?  probably

Dubba I totally get what you are saying bc this is a weird flavor for me. Every year I buy it forgetting how weird I felt about it. The combination of the chocolate and the malt candies almost give me a dog biscuit vibe. I'm sure Il buy it again next year and wonder what I was thinking

You nailed it! I keep eating it trying to figure out if I like it or not. I love the soft base and agree it's like a milkshake. I think the malted milk balls should be bigger. Husband wants to buy a box of Whoppers and do a mix it with them. :)
Overall - I would probably buy again now that I know what to expect.

A better idea would be adding mini malt balls in there. Maybe the malt balls could get soggy if they were chopped up.
