Carvel Ready to Drink Milkshake
Chocolate, Vanilla flavored, and Strawberry flavored
Since who knows when I will see these again (since Carvel is basically gone from Massachusetts), I decided to try all three. Technically there were also two glacier smoothie flavors, in berry banana and I want to say mango, but these three should keep me busy.
Ummm, no, don't think I'll be just taking a sip.... though you can squeeze it out and with a decent amount of force....
Yeah, the further away I get from eating it, the weirder the aftertaste gets. I've had worse, and I like that it's self contained, but the weirdness. Let's see if the others are flavors are better.
Alright, the vanilla has been out for several minutes (I got distracted) and it hasn't melted at all. I tip it over a cup, wait a few minutes, and.... we've got a couple of drops now. I am way too impatient for this..... and I broke the container again. Uggg.
Hmmm, it's not bad. It's cold, so that's good (too many chemicals and a "milkshake" never really gets cold). The flavor is that of fake vanilla, and it's quite sweet. It's borderline cake flavor but there is a bit less weirdness here. It's definitely an improvement from the strawberry.
(several hours pass)
Ok, I had to take a sampling break despite the small size of these, but let's dig in to the final flavor, chocolate... and apparently I am an idiot because if you follow the directions rather than trying to pour these things out so you can share them, they do actually come out. I mean, technically, it's take a suck, not take a sip, but you can make it come out to some degree after letting it sit out for several minutes... until you run out of melted part and have to wait again.... oh I hate waiting!
Flavor is ok, and now that I think about it, the chocolate in particular reminds me of this at home soft serve product I test sampled a few years ago. Man my tongue is frozen right now.
I'm done now and yeah, the chocolate is easily the best of the bunch and you know what? I'd buy it again. It's just dumb fun. We talk a lot about texture and this one has something different, even if you have to pop out the bottom and eat the second half with a spoon because you're way too impatient to wait any longer for it to melt.
Verdict? Chocolate the best, vanilla decent, strawberry weird
Buy Again? for the chocolate, yes
