Blue Bunny Salted Caramel Craze Ice Cream

[New regular flavor for 2016, appears to be a sweet freedom flavor for 2017]
As I patiently wait for my walmart to take the time to stock new blue bunny flavors, I ask myself... ummm, well, why can't they hurry up is really the only question I have.

Blue Bunny Salted Caramel Craze Ice Cream
sea salt caramel ice cream, sea salt caramel swirls,
(and) chocolate sea salt caramel bunnies

Still getting use to the new container filling style.

With every ingredient having a proclaimed salt factor, did I notice? Ofcourse I did, it's hard to miss! The good news is that it's not totally crazy and I did settle in after a few bites.

So it's not like licking a block of salt or anything, it just has that overall feel when ice cream is really salty. Wow, that made zero sense. You know how the texture seems to change with the salt boost? That's what i am referring to. It's not so much grit but it doesn't come across the same way as a non-salted flavor.

Now there are plenty of bunnies to go around. I don't think they have quite the same enjoyable thud that the old bunnies had, but part of me wonders if I am overthinking it a little. I liked them in the strawberry flavor, but for whatever reason I wanted them thicker here, maybe to counteract the salt a bit more.

On Second Scoop: This one actually struck me as saltier on the second scooping, but it's possible that I just got more swirl this time. With a name like salted caramel craze, you'd have to be craz-E to pick it up and expect it not be salty. What I mean is that a certain crowd is going to pick this one up and for the most part, they will be satisfied by the salty blast. There will be those that go "I didn't expect it to be that salty!" and that's a fair point, but hopefully most of that crowd won't risk it in the first place.... that or they can just balance things out with a waffle.

Verdict?  Yup, that's salty!
Buy Again?  not my style

I enjoy salted caramel but in a much more casual way. I may try this variety as I've been impressed with Blue Bunny so far. Their Peanut Butter Party is a repeat purchase.
