Graeter's Cheese Crown Ice Cream
cheesecake flavored ice cream with cinnamon sugar pastry pieces and fondant icing flakes
For those (like me) who don't know, apparently some Graeter's locations have a bakery. By far their most popular product is something called a "Cheese Crown" which appears to be a cheese danish cooked inside a muffin tin. Drench it in frosting and you get this. Cool right? Let's see how it translates to ice cream
Could definitely smell the cheese when I peeled off the lid.
I see the fondant flakes!
I scoop a small serving and there are square pastry pieces everywhere. There's no blast of cinnamon coming off of them, they are more comlimentary and low key flavor wise. Present but not bold. They've got plenty of crunch to them. The flakes actually have a bit of crunch too and add to the sweetness.
This one has got a nice strong cheese flavor that lingers. Consistent and strong in every bite really. There's plenty of sweetness as well. Sweet cheesiness!
This one has some high nutritional facts so it's good that it's packed with flavor. If I feel guilty, I can just take smaller bites. Some ice creams you inhale, others you savor. Grab a small spoon and savor every bite. No need to rush here (the fact it's a nice dense ice cream helps slow you down as well).
Obviously you need to be amused by cheese to enjoy this one, but if you are, then this is one sweet ride. I haven't said much but I guess I'm too busy enjoying the quality and rich flavor. You know I love sweet flavors and this totally qualifies.
On Second Scoop: If you've ever had New Orleans Ice Cream's Creole Cream Cheese flavor, than you know the kind of flavor and excellence that's going on here. The difference here being that we've got mix-ins now and I definitely enjoy their presence. I'm sorry if I'm being brief but it's one of those flavors where I don't know what to say other than it's really good. So, if you have access to it, go grab this sweet cream cheese flavor that rocks Graeter's well known quality and texture.
