Turkey Hill Cookie Butter Ice Cream

[New for 2022] Do I have any faith left in Turkey Hill's mainstream lineup? Honestly? Like, super honest? No, not really (which is ironic considering that I love their all natural line up). I do still buy their cookie dough for my wife, but that's pretty much it (and even that isn't nearly as good as it used to be). Sure I could use new content for the blog, but if I have no urge to finish the container, what's the point? That said, I decided to cut them a little slack and try...

I forgot the opening shot, but it's not really different from the scoop shot.

To put it simply, this one is boring. Very boring. It's like a mild cinnamon light ice cream that has a hint of cake batter vibe to it. Did they even try to compare it to other cookie butter flavors before releasing it? Gee, sorry, a long time ago I decided to be less aggressive with my opinion but I am pretty disappointed with this one and a lack of good sleep isn't helping me express my opinion.

Even this sundae wasn't enough to save this one. It's just a boring ice cream.

On Second Scoop: I've had no urge to eat this one on it's own, so I've been mixing it with other stuff in the fridge. It's just not terribly good, but if you mix it with a good ice cream, it becomes less boring and then I don't feel bad for wasting my money. 

'gram note: someone asked me for suggestions of Turkey Hill flavors they should try, and I couldn't come up with any (besides all natural). It's frustrating because I remember how much I loved Turkey Hill as a kid and their mainstream lineup is so far from that now. I know the only constant is change, but that doesn't mean change can't make me sad.... ok, sorry, it's just ice cream, there are other ones that can be eaten. Think happy ice cream thoughts!

Verdict?  boring

This even sounds boring! I'm shocked that they didn't try to add cookies to it or something else.

Odd they would go plain base here. With the success of their graham swirl in the Pumpkin Pie flavor I would have shot for a cookie butter version. That's a goof..............

Looks dull to me! Where is the swirls of cookie butter?! Pieces of cinnamon cookie dough?!
