Haagen-Dazs Peanut Butter Salted Fudge Ice Cream
peanut butter ice cream with salted fudge swirls and chocolate covered peanuts
Now this doesn't taste salty in particular, but there is a saltiness that brings another layer of excellence to the flavor. I like how it's a factor but not a specific note per say.
And the chocolate? Again, yesterday's product brought more of chocolate and pb balance where as this HD version is peanut butter first and then chocolate second. Now when I say that you need to keep in mind that this really isn't too separate flavors despite that fact in involves a salty swirl. The flavor is actually quite uniform.
I can't forget to mention the large chocolate covered peanuts with their unique crunch. They seem more solid than your average peanut mix in and it added a nice textural high point to an already great texture.
I can't stop gushing about this one can I? I had to force myself to stop after a third of the pint disappeared but I could have easily eaten the whole thing. This is perfectly dialed in to the way I want peanut butter ice creams to be. The flavor, the sweetness, the saltiness, the texture, everything. Awesome job HD.
On Second Scoop: For a second I wondered if I was truly enjoying all the chocolate coated peanuts... and then I inhaled a large portion of this ice cream. Wow I like this one alot. If you love snickers, you'll love this ice cream. No there is no caramel aspect, but just the overall feel and complexity has me thinking of digging in to that half off bag of valentine snickers I bought at lunch time. If I can manage not to go back and finish this one today, I will be impressed with my self control (which I sometimes have little of).
Buy Again? Yes!
