Turkey Hill All Natural Neapolitan Ice Cream Review

Discontinued 2013: For whatever reason, no strawberry flavors have made it through the 2013 re-branding of Turkey Hill's all natural product line (though there will be a raspberry flavor coming).

You know, when I was a real little kid, I remember being able to only pick ice cream from 3 choices: chocolate, vanilla, and Neapolitan. Back in those days, if you wanted cookies or chips or anything else in your ice cream, you had to add it yourself. Now Neapolitan doesn't visit my freezer to often anymore, but when it does, you can be sure it will be the Turkey Hill version.
Originally released as Philadelphia Style Neapolitan, it is now known as All Natural Neapolitan with Philadelphia Style on a smaller second line. It's hard to beat all natural (that's why I like Breyer's so much), but in my humble opinion I believe Turkey Hill's version is better than Breyer's. So rich, so creamy, and all the flavors are spot on. This really is the best Neapolitan around.

So now that you have a bowl of this tasty Neapolitan, how do you eat it? One flavor at a time? take scoops from 2 or 3 flavors at a time? or, do what I do. Dig into it for a bit, making sure to eat all the vanilla, leaving some chocolate and a bit of strawberry (it's been awhile since I've tried it, but let's say a 3:1 ratio). Now, mix it together and make yourself a nice chocolate cream with a strawberry tang. Mmmmm, good stuff.
