Market Basket Butter Crunch Ice Cream
toffee flavored ice cream with butter crunch candy
Ok, that's a little strange looking...
...and that's a lot strange looking!
Those are some precise little puddles of butter crunch candy.
I thought there would be a crunch, but not so much, instead it's basically a tiny puddle of caramel, but it has that burnt toffee edge to it. The added complexity is a nice touch, but there is a certain weirdness to it. I can't quite describe it though. Unnecessarily potent maybe? This one is shots of toffee in a bland, ice cream like substance. I try mixing it together but it doesn't really help. It's still strangely potent. There's almost got a menthol-like effervescence to it. Actually, it's almost got a bit of toffee cake batter flavor to it now that I mixed it up.
On Second Scoop: So my first scooping went pretty... negative shall we say and there is good reason for it because I suspect a lot of people would hate this flavor (the way people hate B&J's toffee flavors). That said, I do have to give some props to Market Basket for being so bold on the budget flavor. Whether it was accidental or on purpose, it does make for a potent component of whatever ice cream treat you want to make. Me? I was making milkshakes by mixing this stuff with snospice. It's funny because too much pumpkin snospice kills the butterscotch vibe but then a blast of cinnamon snospice helps restore some of the balance.
