Perry's Escapes French Toast Ice Cream
french toast ice cream with maple syrup swirls
Yay plastic seal!
Ok, first small bowl is gone and I sit here debating how I feel. You may think me a little nuts, but if anything, this reminds me of Edys vanilla frozen custard. I just wasn't expecting the egg to play such a big role here... and yes, I feel dumb saying that when I am talking about french toast. My only defense is this. Have you ever had Farm Rich French Toast Sticks? Something more bready and sugary. We'll see how the second scoop goes later.
On Second Scoop: It's flavors like these where I regret my inability to break down spice flavor profiles for you. The second scoop went in to a very quick breakfast sundae and despite the caramel, whip cream and Eggo french toast waffle, this ice cream is still very clearly pronounced amongst the other components. It's not awful, it's just not clicking with me at all. I'm a kid inside and this one isn't aimed at a kid. Is that an acceptable conclusion to this review, or am I still being too vague?
The Mrs. Scoop: I decided to bring in reinforcements on this one. My wife tried this one and said it is definitely eggy, but then took that observation a step further and made the interesting note that it reminds her of eggnog. I go off to take one more scoop, and yeah, she called it, it's french toast eggnog. I hadn't thought of it that way but that would help explain why it's not clicking with me (remember, I don't like eggnog). Thanks to the Mrs. for offering to finish these off for me.
Verdict? unexpectedly eggy
Buy Again? not my style
