Drumstick Cookies 'N' Cream Crushed It!

[New for 2020] What happens when you mix my beloved cookies & cream with my slightly diminished but still going love of Drumstick? You get....

I'll be honest, I had my reservations with Drumstick making something that wasn't a drumstick (ice cream cone). This opening shot is adding to those reservations. Why is it so smooth? I was definitely expecting something more along the lines of a good humor or strawberry shortcake bar. I was not expecting this sanded down treat. I didn't come this far not to try it though!

I bite in and the shell is much sturdier than expected. It's also sweeter too. I would have thought that there was a little bit of sugar replacement magic going on here, but the ingredient list says otherwise (note: how can chocolate be an ingredient? isn't chocolate made up of other things?).

Anyway, overall it's enjoyable. I do wish it was a little less sweet, but the experience is definitely unique... and fairly short. It's a decent size treat but I was tempted to dig in for a second. The sweetness made me hesitate a smidge, so I decided to hold off for a day.

On Second Scoop: Similar experience on day 2, but no urge for a second bar this time. I liked it about the same too. Will I try the vanilla fudge bar? Depends if these grow on me by the end of the box. To clarify, these aren't bad and they are different, I just don't know if I'll ever crave them like I do a more traditional frozen treat. [I do feel like they are growing on me after 3 & 4, but it's a slow process].

Verdict?  interesting
Buy Again?  wont know til the box is done
