Brigham's The Big Dig Ice Cream
vanilla ice cream with fudge brownie chunks, caramel sauce and chocolate chunks
The Big Dig may finally be over, but this ice cream lives on.
I take my first bites and there is tons of caramel flavor, and there's a little kick to it. Not like a burn kick, but a flavor kick.
I'm seeing lots of brownie chunks at the top. I cheat and put two on my spoon. Hmmm. Not the most mind blowing of things but not bad. Not super flavorful or gooey, but respectable.
There is plenty of sweetness to the swirl which I think is part of the kick I was referring too. It's definitely candy like which is always a #funfactor to me.
The chocolate chips taste like the chocolate frosting they put on Boston cream pie. That is a bonus right there as it's a flavorful, sweet chocolate that is oh so familiar. My only complaint here is that I wish there were more of them.
In case you couldn't tell, I'm definitely enjoying this one. I like things with lots of flavor. It doesn't have to be super premium to be enjoyable, just get the flavors right. Man, why did I wait so long to try this? I've literally stared at it for years now only to realize now how tasty it is.
I needed a sweet snack to break up my afternoon and this was it. Lots of caramel flavor, nice overall sweetness, getting bits of of brownie here and then (when I'm not hitting a big brownie chunk). It's not some high end base but everything comes together really well.
Alrighty, am I the only New Englander who waited way too long to try this one?
On Second Scoop: Mmmm, nice flavorful after snack yet again. The texture isn't perfect but I don't care, it clicks and that's what matters.
Buy Again? yes
