Friendly's Camp Friendly's S'mores Ice Cream
artificially flavored toasted marshmallow ice cream
with dark chocolate flavored flakes and a graham cracker swirl
Ok, I already snuck a few bites as I was scooping myself a bowl but let's grab a few more. Ok, definitely marshmallow flavor. Enjoying the swirl. Chocolate Chips to finish it off. I know this won't shock you, but I like it ofcourse. Come on, when do we not like a smores flavor here?
What's bugging me? Well, not bug, but keeping this from perfection? Well, one is the texture. There's almost a bit of... gumminess or something strange going on here. I actually checked the container to make sure it wasn't a frozen dairy dessert. The other thing a little off is the flavor. It's not perfectly balanced, but when it comes to graham, I don't need perfection, I just something good, and we have that.
Ok, I went back to the container for a few more bites. There's definitely an airiness to the base ice cream that's unlike their regular premium ice creams. It's just a little too unnaturally smooth. (ahhh, most people won't notice this, just being me here).
Favorite part? Well, I really enjoy the swirl. It's not to dry, not too sugary, not too sweet, just squarely in the middle and very pleasant. Part of me wants to eat it while it's intact, but there's a neat bit of magic that happens when the swirl blends evenly with the base. It just really comes alive with texture and flavor and those are probably the best bites.
On Second Scoop: Oh man, I am so full of s'mores ice cream right now (a reward for some late day mowing). I am addicted to graham swirls and this one has that. What can I say. Overall a nice flavor. Definitely an overall s'mores vibe to it. Maybe not dead on, there is a bit of fakeness to it, but it's still in a happy place. I'm not really describing anything am I? Basically it has enough of everything, enough swirl, enough marshmallow, and enough chips so you won't feel jipped. My only suggestion here is to let it melt a bit because like I thought yesterday, once the graham spreads out a bit, things really start to pop, at least if graham is the main reason you came to this flavor. Definitely buying this one again.
Buy Again? Ofcourse
