Blue Bunny Cherrific Cheesecake Ice Cream
cherry cheesecake ice cream with cherry and graham swirls
First serving is a bit of a cheat as it will have all the cherry sauce in it.
Funny, the first big bite I took has some graham swirl in it and for a moment I thought I tasted caramel. I take two more bites and it's more graham flavor than cheesecake flavor which is very surprising.
A few more bites in and the cheesecake flavor grows. The cherry sauce has a bit of bite to it, it's definitely pronounced.
It doesn't help I just had Graeters fantastic Cheese Crown the other day so the bar is set pretty high at the moment. Let me try mixing everything together to see what happens. Well the cheesecake flavor is much more pronounced now, but so is the oddness of the texture. I hate to use the word slimy but I cant think of something more polite at the moment.
I like the flavor much more now that it's mixed together. It's cheesecake first with cherry notes and an graham undercurrent. An interesting first serving to say the least. I'm thinking scoop #2 should go better.
On Second Scoop: You know, I really expected this one to be long gone out of my freezer by now, long since eaten by the Mrs., but it's still kind of sitting there... lonely and unloved. I take another serving and the base with some graham swirl is fine. The base with the flavorful cherry swirl is fine. The multitude of bites of just plain base, not as exciting shall we say. I think what's hanging me up is that the cherry just isn't prevalent enough. Cherry cheesecake is fun. The cherry flavor easily reminds me of a can of cherries. It's just not in every bite and it really should be. This one excels when you get a bite with everything, the other bites are just for those that want something cheezy.
Verdict? could use some tweaks
