10 Talenti Peanut Butter Pretzel Gelato. With seven new flavors for 2016 (one of them exclusive to Publix), Talenti manages to grab two spots in the top ten for a third year in a row.
9 DQ Royal Rocky Road Brownie Blizzard. It doesn't surprise me that the core line up made it into the top ten, but I don't see this being a thing long term.
8 Talenti Key Lime Pie gelato. Here is Talenti's second entry in the top ten but yet again they are denied a spot in the top five. They played it fairly safe this year so this isn't totally surprising.
7 Haagen-Dazs Brownies a la Mode ice cream. Two other of the destination series actually came in at 11 and 12 but it's brownies that cracks the top ten.
6 Haagen-Dazs White Russian ice cream out of Canada (thanks to Jeff for this review). So far the only other "special edition" to be announced is Peppermint Bark which we've had in the states for years now.
5 Ben & Jerry's Pecan Sticky Bun. It's a little surprising that a walmart exclusive made it in to the top five. It's a fine flavor that hopefully you got to find during it's limited run.
4 Haagen-Dazs Sweet Cream Coffee Caramel - this is kind of surprising because I wasn't even going to try this one. I'm glad I did because it was both tasty and attention grabbing.
3 Ben & Jerry's Cookies & Cream Cheesecake Core ice cream. You knew at least one core would make it to the top ten....
2 Ben & Jerry's Cake My Day ice cream by our very busy friend Nick. Not sure how many reviews will get from him in 2017 but only time will tell. The funny thing here is that neither one of us clicked with this flavor.
and the number one review is....
That's it, what do you think of this year's roundup? Who would you have added or who do you wish wasn't on the list. Also, what trends are you hoping for in 2017? We should only be a few weeks away from the first new flavors. Let me know your thoughts in the comments and have yourself a good new year's eve!
