Flavor: Chocolate Ice Cream

Scoop 57: Ben and Jerry’s Fudge Central

July 22, 2006

The chocolate fudge in Ben and Jerry’s Fudge Central is just like hot fudge. Except it’s not hot. But it is this awesome “core” in the middle of the ice creams that is rich and gooey and fudgey. The chocolate ice cream with white fudge chunks and the the vanilla bean with chocolate fudge chunks [...]

Scoop 55: Mocha Fudge Brownie at Sweet Licks

July 20, 2006

The dreadful heat and humidity of DC in the summer brings lines to whichever ice cream shop you go to. Tonight I went to Sweet Licks and even had to wait in a long line there. I’ve never had to wait behind more than two people! One woman in front of me ordered a cone [...]

Scoop 48: Ice Cream Sandwich at Wildfire in Eden Prarie, MN

July 13, 2006

I’m in Minneapolis this weekend for my mom’s birthday. Tonight we went to a nice restaurant in Eden Prairie called Wildfire. After stuffing myself with too much “regular” food, it came time for dessert. Among the desserts we ordered were ice cream sandwiches. These weren’t ordinary ice cream sandwiches, but sandwiches made from Ghirardelli brownies, [...]

Scoop 47: Homemade Easy Cocoa Ice Cream

July 12, 2006

This ice cream is awesome.  It’s everything you’d want in an ice cream: rich, creamy, dense, intense.  It doesn’t get much better than this.  But, it does.  It’s extremely easy to make.  There are only a few ingredients, it’s quick and it’s difficult to mess up.  This recipe comes from Hershey, though I actually used [...]

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 43: Homemade German Chocolate Ice Cream

July 8, 2006

German chocolate cake has always been a favorite of mine. Chocolate, coconut, pecan; what else do you need? Take those ingredients and put them in ice cream and it’s just as good (if not better) than the cake. This recipe from Spaghetti Ice Cream was not as easy to make as some other recipes since [...]

Scoop 42: Decadence at Larry’s Ice Cream

July 7, 2006

“Chocolate ice cream with chocolate and vanilla ribbon” is how this flavor is described at Larry’s Ice Cream in Dupont Circle. But, “Decadence” was a little bit of a disappointment. Not because it wasn’t good, but because it wasn’t what I expected. There was a very little “ribbon” of vanilla something in the ice cream, [...]

Scoop 34: Ben and Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie

June 29, 2006

According to the website, Ben and Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie is one of the most popular flavors. I understand why. This ice cream is awesome. It is extremely fudgy in flavor and brownie-like in texture. The texture is rich and dense, yet still creamy. (It’s very hard to describe; but trust me, it’s good.) I [...]

Scoop 32: Breyers Double Churned Chocolate

June 27, 2006

Since Edy’s slow churned thing has created such excitement, it seems everyone wants a share.  After trying Breyers Double Churned Chocolate, I’m not so convinced that it’s anything special.  The only thing I can really say about the consistency is that it is softer.  This ice cream wasn’t as hard as I expected it to [...]

Scoop 30: Breyers Rocky Road

June 25, 2006

I wouldn’t call it Rocky Road, I’d call it Chocolate and Almonds. But, who am I to decide what to name Breyers ice creams? This is day two of four in my taste tests of Breyers ice creams. It’s not that I was dying to try any of the Breyers flavors, but the Safeway down [...]

Scoop 22: Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked Frozen Yogurt

June 17, 2006

Tonight I decided to try something different, frozen yogurt. To put it lightly: it was a terrible idea. I’ve had Ben and Jerry’s frozen yogurts in the past, at least a half dozen times. So, I expected to enjoy Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked frozen yogurt at least a little bit. But, I didn’t. First, [...]

Scoop 21: Key West Chocolate Decadence at Larry’s Homemade Ice Cream, Dupont Circle

June 16, 2006

So, today I ate my 21st “scoop” of ice cream.  Granted it’s probably been more than a scoop a day, so maybe I should say today I tried my 21st flavor of ice cream today.  I wonder if there’s a world record for longest number of consecutive days eating ice cream.  I’ll have to look [...]

Scoop 18: Ben and Jerry’s Black and Tan

June 13, 2006

Can’t decide between a pint of Guinness and a pint cup of ice cream? Try a pint Ben and Jerry’s new Black and Tan. While the name is extremely offensive to the Irish, Black and Tan cream probably wouldn’t offend their tongues. (As a side note, Ben and Jerry’s did issue an apology and it’s [...]

Scoop 17: Chocolate Peanut Butter at MaggieMoo’s

June 12, 2006

Any disappointment I felt after our kickball team lost tonight vanished with one bite of Maggie Moo’s Chocolate Peanut Butter. I have never been to a Maggie Moo’s before, though I recently learned that they are a growing franchise and have a number of locations other than the one I went to in Adam’s Morgan. [...]

Scoop 16: Wendy’s Frosty- Wendy’s Resturant, VA

June 11, 2006

I promise after today I will start eating more “real” ice cream. There have been too many ice cream bars and other non-ice cream ice creams for my liking. This site is about ranking real ice cream. Not ice cream bars or Wendy’s Frosties (is that the plural of “Frosty”? I don’t know). So, I [...]
