Yeti Frozen Custard : currently available in eight flavors, I tried four of them
I wound up trying the Yeti Blueberry Pancake first.
Can't say I was expecting the swirl to be that bright blue.
Sorry, tangent, let's dig in to Yeti Roasted Strawberry frozen custard. It's very dense and there is something to it that I can't place on the first few bites. This will sound dumb, but I almost think I taste caramel popcorn. Wow, it's really unexpected and definitely not what you would expect of a strawberry flavor. I can't think of anything comparable. Man, what a neat flavor. If you blindfolded me, I would not know this is a strawberry flavor. It tastes like fresh caramel popcorn. I don't get it and I don't care. Very cool.
To prove my point, I will now make my wife taste it.... and she had no idea it was strawberry. Awesome trick Yeti.
See, if you are patient, you can teach an old east coast boy like myself a new trick. I think this is a good point to thank Yeti for introducing me to such a product. Ahhh, fun times!
The freezer was on a defrost cycle so I decided to second scoop the strawberry, the oh so amazing strawberry. It's kind of magical you know. Yes, I should probably complain that it doesn't really taste like strawberries, but it's just so... dialed in to whatever sorcery is going on here. I don't mean to gush, but it's just such a unique flavor/texture combo. It's almost cheesy. I meant to buy some strawberry sauce from the store the other day just to see what would happen when I mixed the two together. At the moment I think it would taste like a strawberry danish if I mixed the two.
Might be my favorite lid ever.
Ok, who lost my Yeti Lemon Lavender notes? Wait, I didn't write them down you say? Yup, that's sounds like me! Anyway, I didn't expect to get more than one or two bites in to this one but it's not bad. It's got this familiar fruity / flowery flavor that I recognize but can't name. I think I kind of expected this one to taste like soap or hand cream, but it's really not bad. That may sound like a slight but I mean it as a total compliment. They went fringe here and pulled it off.
Let's dig in to the LL again to be safe. If I had to imagine what a lemon creamscile would taste like, I think this would be similar. Not some artificially flavored one mind you, but a nice high end one. The lavender takes the edge off the lemon and gives you a more well rounded flavor. Actually, the custard's egg component is part of that profile as well. I'm glad I let it temper because it's really brought this one alive and it's found this really nice middle ground to stand on.
Yet again I find myself impressed with Yeti's creativity. Actually, let's end on that note shall we. If you happen to be in their distribution area, give them a shot. I send them my thanks for the samples and wish them the best. Count me as their newest fan.
Verdict? I approve
Buy Again? if I could
