Friendly's I Cannot Tell a Lie Cherry Pie Ice Cream

[Limited Edition for Early 2020] Pickings are slim when you only go to the grocery store once a week, and my local walmart has been consistently wiped out. However, those stocking up seem a little hesitant to grab something new which means I get to try....

Friendly's I Cannot Tell a Lie Cherry Pie Ice Cream
sweet cream ice cream, pie crust pieces and tart cherry swirl

Tempted?

How about now?

Best part? The crisp pie crust pieces. They are plentiful and a respectable size. It's a good change up from the fairly light texture of the ice cream.

Questionable part? not bad questionable mind you. There's a slippery slope between "sweet cream" and cream cheese. Again, that's not necessarily bad. There's nothing wrong with a nice, sweet, cold cream cheese. My first bite of just sweet cream ice cream was like "whoa, that's cool". But then the cherry kicks in and that sweet cream transferred in to a fun but cream cheese leaning flavoring. Not a bad thin, but be aware that it could happen.

Worst part? Honestly, I would tweak the texture, but that's about it. I tend to get a little bored with a texture like this, but overall I would say that they delivered on what I expected from this container of ice cream. I guess some could complain that the swirl isnt more tart, but hey, that's not going to be me.

On Second Scoop: You know what's another positive here? It's a cherry flavor without chocolate chips. It might sound dumb, but it's nice to have options. I don't always want some poppy cherry flavor with chocolate chunks. (look at me being all positive today - maybe I'm just happy my wife helped me eat this one)

Verdict?  good enough!
Buy Again?  I might actually

Very addictive with a great overall flavor. If you want cherry without chocolate or chocolate ice cream just isn't your thing, you will definitely enjoy this. Or for when you crave the slice of pie with ice cream experience, when short on the pie.
The sweet cream has a different flavor than what you may expect. I found it to be a very sweet and a pleasant surprise. On first bite it almost taste like a sweet frosting with slight hint of cream cheese. Anyhow very sweet and delicious. The pie crust pieces come liberally. I was pleasantly surprised to find they have a near authentic pie crust taste that makes this ice cream complete. Enjoy! I hope Friendly's keeps this one around!

Omg it's the bomb. It reminds me of the old flavor, key lime pie, from baskin Robbins. It's just SO DARN GOOD

I wish I had read this before I bought it. It leans very much into cheesecake territory, which I love, but I bought it for birthday for a roommate and they don't love cheesecake flavors. So it was a birthday bust, but I got the rest for myself. Could use more cherry and more mix ins, but I always want more pie crust pieces.
