Turkey Hill Mint Cookie Trio'politan Ice Cream

[New for 2018] I find it amusing that we have a secondary trend going on this year... ok, trend might be a stretch, but is it not amusing that Haagen-Dazs Trio is being joined by Edy's Triple Cores and Turkey Hill Trio'politan. The lid even says "Trio" all over it. Now while Breyer's is busy swirling two frozen dairy desserts in to one container, Turkey Hill is taking things up a notch by shoving three ice creams in to one container side by side by side.

Turkey Hill Mint Cookie Trio'politan Ice Cream
vanilla-flavored ice cream chocolate cookie swirl, dark chocolate ice cream,
and mint ice cream with chocolate cookie pieces.

Triple the Excitement? That's setting the bar pretty high hehehe
(there are four regular Trio flavors and one all natural version)

Ha! The swirl in the vanilla side amuses me.

I steal a few little bites and the mint is pretty strong. The dark chocolate is fun. The vanilla brings in that familiar turkey hill cookie swirl. Now more mint bites. Fun. The cookie bits are crunchy instead of a softer cookies & cream style cookie bit. And back to dark chocolate. Oh, that's a really nice dark chocolate flavor. It's fun bouncing back and forth here.

Geez, I like all three components but should I continue to eat them alone or mix it up? Decisions Decisions Decisions. Ok, it's fun mixed together too. The dark chocolate wants to dominate for sure but the three separate flavors play together surprisingly well. There was a little worry that maybe they wouldn't get along but this is definitely fun. Now to recap:

The vanilla side is effectively vanilla chocolate crunch
The dark chocolate middle is deep dark chocolate minus the chocolate slivers
The mint side is lady liberty mint minus the cookie swirl

And I made short work of that bowl. The dark chocolate is definitely my favorite. It's got a chocolate cream pie filling vibe to it (if that cream pie was leaning a little darker / richer ofcourse). The ice cream itself is a bit fluffly / airy, but I still had a fun time and what more can you ask for? Wait, I know what I can ask for, another scoop because I'm still hungry!

On Second Scoop: Tomorrow! (or tonight)

Verdict?  Fun
Buy Again?  Yup

I bought this as soon as I saw it. Overall I liked it, but for me the dark chocolate was a bit chalky. I only noticed it if a spoonful was more chocolate than the other two flavors. I will recommend this to others though!

I'm currently trying this combination and think it's my favorite of the four (still need to hunt down the "All Natural" flavor). First, it's a great concept - sometimes you want more than one flavor, but REAL ice cream can be pricey, and the traditional Neapolitan of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry just won't do. And YES - the crunchy cookie bits are yummy!

Why not Turkey Hill done a all three mint flavor Neapolitan. Starting with mint patty flavor, thin mint flavor, and "breath mint" flavor which could had andes mints mixed in.

My guess is not enough contrast (aka it wouldn't bring the #funfactor)

I tried the Coco Loco flavor and loved it!
