Turkey Hill Blackberry Swirl Ice Cream
blackberry ice cream swirled with vanilla ice cream
The purple side looks like most black raspberry flavors.
So the first scooping technically went in to my fruity crisp Oreo sundae here. There weren't a lot of bites not covered with Oreo or crushed cereal but I did have two thoughts. One, I so love the texture of this ice cream. Two, it feels like forever since I've had this flavor in this texture of ice cream (mainstream but not too dense).
So, fruity flavor for the win. I'm a little surprised they went with a swirl rather than a straight up blackberry flavor because that would be my personal preference. This still works nice though. It's more mild this way, you'll pick up the milky notes a bit more this way, but it's still really nice and I really enjoyed my serving. This isn't some tart pick me up, this is a mellow moment of relaxation... do I ever talk about ice cream in normal terms any more? Or maybe I'm just a little exhausted from a nice day with friends in the New Hampshire sun.
On Second Scoop: Oh geez, I think I can already see the bottom of this container. I'm sure those of you who prefer a heavy dose of mix-ins are wondering why I'm so ga-ga over this, but it's perfection in simplicity. I should probably point out that there isn't a huge flavoring difference from bite to bite. You might expect it with a swirled flavor, but I'm just not noticing it (I didn't notice any straight vanilla bites until I got two or three at the very bottom of the container). I just love the clarity of it. Straight forward, easy melting, not too strong or tart. The only thing I would change is how readily available it is because I'm going to need several more of these to get through the summer. So, if you like simple and you like a nice black raspberry type flavor, please give this a try.
Verdict? hitting the spot!
Buy Again? ofcourse!
