Edy's Strawberry Shortcake Frozen Custard
(appears to be a Walmart exclusive)
With no description to be found on the website or the package,
I'm guessing this is vanilla base with strawberry swirl and shortcake bits.
The cake bits are so orange looking...
I take my first bite and oh my that is kind of gummy and weird. That doesn't come across right at all. It's kind of this muted... dense.... thing on my spoon.
The cake bits help break up the odd texture but there's still just something very flat about the whole experience. Sometimes strawberry flavors have a neat strawberry whip cream type flavor but this doesn't hit the same notes. I don't know how to properly quantify it other than saying it's off a bit.
Wow, I'm not feeling very talkative on the first scooping here. I'm debating if I want to have some more now or just wait til the next scooping to dig in to this one a bit more. It becomes less weird as you go, but was there a need to be weird in the first place?
On Second Scoop: I hate to be cranky, but for what's it worth, this custard is visually unappealing. The light pink gelatinous swirl is not helping me get in to the mood at all. I've tried sampling this a few times and yes, if you get a nice cake bit with just a little custard, it's fine. But it only takes a few scoops of the base to get bored with this one and it frustrated me because it could have been a lot nicer with say a strawberry base and real strawberry bits mixed in.
