Yuengling Butterbeer Ice Cream
buttercream and butterscotch ice cream with a butterscotch swirl
The thing is, either blogger deleted the review or I got distracted and never copied the review in to blogger before shutting everything down Friday night. I hate when this happens because there is a certain authentic mindset when you go in for the first scoop of a new flavor and it's hard to recreate that after the fact if I don't even have notes to go off of. Am I rambling too much? You just want to know how this one tastes so you can rush off and figure out what store has it? Ok, fine, for all you east coast folks, here we go (sorry west coast people, Yuenglings comes out of Pennsylvania).
For those of you that have found this review but have never had Yuengling, their ice cream is lighter than super premium Ben & Jerry's or Haagen-Dazs ice creams, but heavier (and less gummy) than your main stream ice creams like Edy's or Breyer's.
On Second Scoop: It's funny how much butterscotch smell wafted off the pint as I opened it. I take a few bites and I kind of envision a mild butterscotch frosty. I thought I remembered it being a little less strong and a little more sweet on the first try. There's also a little bit of dryness to the aftertaste. The swirl, when occasionally noticed, seems to be razor thin for the most part (though maybe it'll be more abundant in the quart version once it comes out). There's nothing really crazy going on here, but Yuengling doesn't do crazy, that's not their thing. Right now I'm debating about how I would probably pick this over a sea salt caramel flavor just because I think butterscotch is a little more robust and interesting. I'll be curious to see what others think of this one.
Verdict? mild butterscotch
Buy Again? possible
