Graeter's Cookie Dough Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
vanilla ice cream with dark chocolate chips and cookie dough
I dig in and it's excellent ofcourse. A nice, icy cold wave of ice cream and cookie dough chunks going over my taste buds.
Always a pleasure to eat a top notch product, it really is. I thought maybe I would be reminded of their oh so excellent vanilla bean base, but everything is kept in check here. It's not trying to be crazy...
Oh Graeters, no one does chocolate like you do!
Ok, every now and then the chocolate is a little crazy. The chocolate is surprisingly soft. Maybe reminiscent of a hollow chocolate bunny? For someone who buys a lot of mainstream cookie dough flavors, it is weird to not have that constant thudding and cracking of chocolate chips, but hey, like I said, no one does chocolate likes graeters.
And my bowl is empty. Part of me wants more, but the larger part of me is happy and full. It's a nice flavor. It's not trying to be trendy or hip. It's saying "dude, I'm Graeter's, and I'm happy to just be classic and excellent at the same time". Hehehehe. What? Your pints don't talk to you?
On Second Scoop: I sampled this one a few more times and I like it, my wife did to. I personally wouldn't mind a bit more flavor coming from the base, but that's not what they were going for here. Those living on the cutting edge of maple bacon sriracha bone marrow honeydew lime fresca ice cream may not dig it's simple nature, but hey, there's nothing wrong with the classics.
Verdict? Well done (ofcourse)
Buy Again? sure
