You see, a lot of people have mentioned Stewart's Happy Camper Ice Cream to me. I tried it when it originally debuted about 4 years ago but before I wrote for OSS and before I really thought of what I was eating. My girlfriend who works at Stewart's and also loves this flavor surprised me last week with a handpacked pint of Happy Camper that she did herself. She even included a cute little note on the lid and a drawing on the protective paper. This is how you know you have a keeper. Seriously, she's perfect and I'm thankful to call her my girlfriend. Okay, sappy note aside, time to get to the ice cream!
Stewart's Happy Camper Ice Cream (Summer Seasonal)
Graham Cracker Ice Cream with a Marshmallow Swirl,
Graham Cracker Chunks and Peanut Butter Cups
Just read the description. Like I said on the show, it's essentially peanut butter s'mores and I have no problem with that. They use the same graham cracker flavor loaded base as their Crumbs Along The Mohawk I love so much. It's awesome just how much it resembles a graham cracker in flavor and texture due to the added graham cracker chunks in the base.
They swap out the caramel swirl for a marshmallow one and oh man is it awesome. While it's not super thick or gooey like other brands, the flavors is like a marshmallow straight from the bag. I honestly prefer it to Ben & Jerry's normal marshmallow swirl. The flavor is just so spot on and with the graham cracker base, it's building up to that classic s'mores flavor profile nicely.
What makes this one stand out is the actual peanut butter. That sweet and salty combo mixed with all the other components give you the perfect replica of a peanut butter s'mores. This is easily the best flavor I've had from Stewart's in my life and might just be my favorite seasonal ice cream as well. That goes for every single season, not just summer. Dear Stewart's, it would be awesome if this was available all year round. Just a suggestion.
Oh, that and I believe my girlfriend deserves a promotion. How many of your employees put such love and care into making your customers happy? Alright, if you have a Stewart's near you, get this before it's too late.
Verdict? I'll say it again, peanut butter s'mores
Buy Again? She got us another pint the next day...
