Yuengling Caramel Popcorn Ice Cream
"the taste of buttered popcorn with a caramel swirl"
Having brought home fresh caramel popcorn from the boardwalk just a few weeks ago, I can honestly say this is not caramel popcorn because who puts caramel on buttered popcorn? You do one or the other, why do we have both here? This flavor makes no sense to me.
Sorry for not describing the swirl more but the base is very distracting. The swirl helps but I cant describe it well at the moment. Ahhhh, I'm reviewing poorly. Start over.
This flavor says it's a buttered popcorn base and they have that here once the swirl kicks in. We've seen this tried a few times, and this could have been much worse, but I just don't get it. They've done a decent job recreating buttered popcorn flavor but we need more. Come up with some clever crunchy caramel bits and jam pack them in here. Something. Anything. This flavor is in desperate need of a fun factor.
On Second Scoop: Yeah, it's still really weird that when you start mixing the swirl with the base how this one goes from a mild burnt coffee (or burnt popcorn) taste to move of a straight buttery popcorn taste (with a lingering note of caramel popcorn... sort of). I do not like the way the flavor sits on my tastebuds, it's very.... it just doesn't seem right. It doesn't finish quite right. I am so not the target audience for this flavor. Good luck getting people to buy this flavor more than once. Ok, now I'm just being cranky.
Verdict? not sure why I would want this
Buy Again? nope
