Turkey Hill Blueberry Ice Cream

[New for 2017] Disclaimer: blueberry ice cream is not my thing. Ok, I say that about a lot of things, but it's just not something I gravitate towards unless there is an x-factor like pie crust bits. That said, I wanted to try at least one more of the new flavors in Turkey Hill's all natural line up.
(Note: this line up is what I eat when I'm not eating/reviewing something new).

Turkey Hill All Natural Blueberry Ice Cream

I scraped the lid after taking this shot and decided to make myself a shake because it seemed to have a fairly mild flavor. I wound up getting the ratios wrong but the milkshake was decent if a bit too weak. Sorry that the color looks different in each picture, the next one is probably most accurate.

Fast forward to a real serving, albeit a small one. Well, there's no mistaking that it's a blueberry flavor. The only problem is that I have no urge to eat plain blueberry ice cream. I want it to have some sugar crumble or pie crust or granola bits or anything. I don't know how to eat blueberry ice cream.... WHOA, just had a huge flashback to eating blueberry smurf yogurt. That's what this is though, it's a good blueberry yogurt, just colder (and with better texture).

To summarize the gibberish. It's a fine blueberry ice cream, I just have no urge to eat plain blueberry ice cream.... it'd probably be really good on a donut tomorrow morning...

On Second Scoop: Oh my was this good on a donut. It went so very well together. The strawberry sauce and Trix crumbs helped round things out. This was an absolutely delightful breakfast sundae. I may be eating the rest of the container like this.

Verdict?  everything as expected
Buy Again?  not really my thing

I'm def gonna try it bc I love this line, but salted caramel is still my all time fav from the all natural line up

Your breakfast sundae makes me want someone to make a blueberry cake donut flavor. Ben and Jerry's should get on that.

Danielle,

Yes! Salted Caramel is my favorite too! All natural ingredients. Love it!
I think it would be even yummier(lol)...if Turkey Hill made a Blueberry swirl. Same Blueberry ice cream but maybe mix it with pure vanilla ice cream. Kind of like their Orange Cream Swirl. Otherwise, I do love this Blueberry flavor! Add Reddi-whip topping for a super creamy blueberry taste!

I can appreciate creativity, but I think these ice cream companies need to understand that just as "Classics are classic for a reason" other flavors are non-traditional, not classic for a reason also.

They just don't work.

I love blueberries, but a big part of my enjoyment of them is from the texture of chewing on them, and the fresh juice bursting in my mouth.

You get that experience with pancakes, waffles and muffins made with fresh blueberries.

This is just sweet cream ice cream infused with a smidgeon of blueberry juice.

Not appealing at all.
