Brand: Other ice cream

Scoop 65: Lee’s Caramel Truffle Swirl

July 30, 2006

I’ve wanted to try this brand of ice cream since I found out it is locally produced in Baltimore. Today, I finally discovered Lee’s Ice Cream at Shopper’s Food Warehouse in Alexandria. For only $2.50 for a quart this ice cream is a steal. You can’t even get a scoop at a shop for that [...]

Scoop 56: Skinny Cow Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich

July 21, 2006

I told you I’d be trying the other half of my Skinny Cow Variety Pack soon. Unfortunately, at some point the ice cream sandwiches got melted a little and thus, any smooth texture was ruined.  However, the flavor was still pretty decent.  I still wouldn’t choose this ice cream over regular ice cream, but if [...]

Scoop 53: Ciao Bella Green Tea with White Chocolate

July 18, 2006

If you like your green tea “green” then you will like this ice cream. If you like to add lots of sugar to your tea (like me) then you may hate this ice cream. This ice cream tastes like green tea. It’s that simple. It doesn’t taste sugary and is incredibly strong in flavor. I [...]

Scoop 44: Skinny Cow Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwich

July 9, 2006

Picturing a skinny cow makes me feel a little ill. Honestly, can cows get skinny without being starved and tortured? I’m not sure. But, the cute logo seems to have kept my image of a skinny cow from consumers’ minds as this brand has really taken off. After trying this ice cream I understand why. [...]

Scoop 41: Safeway Select Vanilla Ice Cream

July 6, 2006

Sometimes there’s a lot to say about something mediocre; sometimes there’s very little to say. This time there is less than little. This store brand ice cream is about what one would expect from store brand ice cream. It’s creamy and rich, but the flavor isn’t great. The vanilla tasted very artificial. That about sums [...]

Scoop 13: Good Humor Chocolate Éclair Bar

June 8, 2006

I’m in Richmond, VA for a conference and the only thing I had time to get today was a Good Humor Chocolate Éclair Bar from the market in the VCU Commons.  When I was in middle school we had an ice cream vending machine in the cafeteria and I would occasionally get the Chocolate Éclair [...]

Scoop 11: Dove Caramel Pecan Perfection

June 6, 2006

The perfection is really lacking in Dove’s Caramel Pecan Perfection.  I’m a huge fan of the Miniature Dove Bars and was hoping to be a fan of Dove’s line of regular ice cream flavors.  Thus far, that’s not going to be the case.  The flavor of Caramel Pecan Perfection is bad and the texture is [...]

Scoop 7: Mars Bar Ice Cream Review, Temple Bar, Dublin

June 2, 2006

Arriving in Dublin 2 hours later than expected after sitting in an hour of traffic to travel 1/2 km and running on fumes (determined to return the prepaid gas rental car on empty), then sitting in more traffic on the steaming hot bus ride into the city center; the last thing I wanted to do [...]
