Baskin-Robbins Easter Egg Hunt Ice Cream
green white chocolate flavored ice cream with a sweet crème swirl and candy eggs
I take my first bite and I know that I'm in trouble. I've got a pretty high sugar tolerance, but I am about to be overwhelmed, and that doesn't happen often.
I was expecting a somewhat tame base with hits of sugar swirl here and there, but no, there is little variation to the full throttle sugar rush found in every bite. It's "white chocolate" in a very loose sense of the word. It's more like those weird little candy corn hershey bars. There's even a somewhat similar gritty texture to it (not as gritty as snacknado, but this is definitely not silky smooth either).
The plentiful blue, yellow, and pink eggs do add a nice fun factor, but their flavor just amplifies the overly sweet nature of the base. They aren't crunchy sugar bits, it's more of confectionery sugary stuff that's solid while still being somewhat soft. It's just more candy grit and I'm slowing down with each successive bite of them.
This rarely happens, but I did not finish my ice cream. The last third is sitting in the freezer. I thought the ride back to work would get the juices flowing so I could finish up but all it did was make me realize how
Final Thought: The server always asks if you want to try something first and I really wish I had on this one. It's just that if I set my mind on reviewing something, I want to really review it, not just a tiny sample of it. Live and learn I guess.
I doubt you can see it, but there are actual designs in the eggs
On Second Scoop: In Baskin-Robbins defense, this ice cream has held up remarkably well for the 6 days it just spent in the back of the work freezer. In my defense, there is a whole lot of sweetness going on here. A few bites of this is more than enough. When you are eating it, there is some temptation to continue (like I am right now) because it is a fairly unique flavor and the eggs are a neat touch (and I'm hungry), but I still can't recommend this flavor. If you want to try it, that's fine... just get a small... and split it with someone... or a few people.... oh yeah, there's the sugar weirdness kicking in again after I finished eating.... I'm getting too old for this apparently.
Verdict? Sugar coma
Buy Again? not a chance
