Humboldt Mint Chip Ice Cream
chocolaty chips in mint ice cream
Apparently my daughter already has had her first scooping.
I'll keep it simple. It's a fine mint flavor, one that is more Talenti than toothpaste. The texture isn't super dense, instead it's fairly soft and not necessarily what you might expect from an organic or even an all natural ice cream. It's not my personal preference but maybe you've been looking for something a bit different.
Those two points aside, I think it's will be the small but plentiful chocolate chips that make or break this one for you. They are those weird chips that are neither soft nor hard. They thud but in a soft way. I just had them in another flavor but can I remember what? Oh yeah, duh, the organic vanilla fudge chip ice cream from Trader Joes. It makes sense that they are the same chips since these two products are made by the same people. I didn't hate the chips then but I wasn't a huge fan either. The mint exaggerates the weirdness rather than trying to compliment it. Again, maybe you are looking for something different in your chocolate chips, but it's not my preference.
So this isn't a bad product, but it doesn't work as well as the vanilla version. It's not a total loss or anything but I just don't expect it to call my name anytime soon. The dumb little chips just seem like too much effort to get through. If you think I'm crazy or have tried this one, let me know in the comments.
*Note: it was implied by the original press release that these would be a Walmart exclusive but they can also be found at Trader Joe's (often at a much lower cost)
Verdict? not bad
Buy Again? meh
