Milk Bar Birthday Cake Ice Cream

[New for 2021] So I picked this next pint up on clearance at Walmart, but I hope it's not discontinued because it's pretty tasty.

Milk Bar Birthday Cake Ice Cream
birthday cake flavored ice cream, birthday crumbs
and ribbons of birthday frosting

Ok, that's what I expect from a birthday cake flavor. A nice yellow-ish hue and fun sprinkles all about. I also spy at least one cake bit trying to peek out.

Sorry that there aren't any major cake bits in this shot, but it's still a good looking ice cream. It's got a nice premium ice cream look to it. 

I dig in and I think I like it. On the one hand, it's definitely a step above modern mainstream ice cream, so that's a positive. On the other hand, there is a fair amount of texture here and I'm not positive where it's coming from. Is it good texture from sprinkles and cake crumbs, or is it bad texture from a little bit of freezerburn? I guess we have to keep scooping to find out!

Ok, the more I eat, the more I enjoy this one. It does feel borderline too sweet. Not in a "ooo, this swirl is pure sugar" kind of way, but more of just an overall sweetness that is making you question your life choices... HA! Just kidding! But seriously, I can't tell if it's leaning towards a "too much frosting" vibe or a "wow, that reminds me of cake" vibe.

So yeah, I think I like this one. The funny thing about the instagram opinions on this one was that despite people's overall feelings on milk bar pints, everyone seems to like this one.

On Second Scoop: I got more cake bits on this second serving and it helped to really hook me on this flavor. The cool thing is that it has the actual aftertaste of cake. How cool is that? I still think it's borderline too sweet, but I'm definitely going to try to find a few more pints incase this one disappears.

Verdict?  tasty    
Buy Again?  if I can!

allergen note: made in a facility that processes nuts

Dubai where was the frosting? I don't see any?

sorry, there is no literal frosting, I was just trying to relate to when a cake has too much frosting.

Oh no that's OK. I read the description and it says ribbons of frosting. But then I looked in the photos and didn't see any

seems the swirl got obliterated in to the base ice cream

If you're still looking, I found this stuff at Target recently. I actually just tried this flavor and shared some with my mom last week. Maybe our pints stole the frosting from yours - we both had a thick ribbon of icing that was my mom's favorite part. There's also a chocolate cake version that I highly recommend!

for a pint pitchin' the MILK, have to say, the calcium is pretty sorry. (i'm a calcium seeker, always looking for ways to get it thru not directly drinking)
