Junket Dutch CHOCOLATE ice cream mix

This week foray with the Ice-20 was a little different. Last time I went to Walmart, I spied Junket's with all the other ice cream toppings. I couldn't resist and decided to go with the chocolate (they also have vanilla and strawberry). All you need to do is add the milk and the cream, so preparation is very simple.

*side note: I don't know if it made a difference, but I shook the half and half for a good 90 seconds, I was trying to add air to the mixture, fluff it up...or something.

I did a sample after about 6-7 minutes and the first thing that came to my mind was chocolate cake mix. I did another sample at about 14 minutes at I realized it reminded me off the frosty shake from Friday. More specifically, it reminded me of chocolate pudding mix, but rather than a nice Jell-o pudding mix, it tasted more like the gummy generic version.

It was probably about twenty minutes or so when it was all done. The mixture is probably the most ice creamy looking concoction we've made to date. The flavor is ok, but the texture is very rubbery/gel-ish when it first comes out. We'll see how it looks after a night of freezing.

On a side note, if it freezes well, I may buy the vanilla but mix it with regular half and half. I used the last of the no-fat half & half so we wouldn't waste.

On Second Scoop: Well, it did freeze a lot like normal ice cream would, though the texture is a bit off. The most important thing is the flavor is still off, so I'm afraid I can't recommend it.
