PhillySwirl Ice Cream Cupcakes Review

by Ice Cream Maker Reviews on July 13, 2008

The kind folks at PhillySwirl sent me a box of Ice Cream Cupcakes to review.

Bite into a PhillySwirl Ice Cream Cupcake and it’s like a birthday cake and scoop of ice cream in each and every bite. At least that’s the way the PhillySwirl Ice Cream Cupcakes taste to me. They are simple- either chocolate or white cake topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream with sprinkles. And they are a tasty little treat.

I tried both the chocolate and white cake cupcakes. The chocolate is a rich almost devil’s food type cake; but it’s a little dense. The white cake is a much fluffier texture.

The ice cream in the cupcakes is pretty average and tastes like New York Vanilla. The whipped cream tastes like coolwhip.


But, the most ingenious part about these Ice Cream Cupcakes is the layer of chocolate fudge that separates the bottom layer of cake from the upper layer of ice cream. Not only does it taste delicious it also prevents the ice cream from getting into the cake layer and making it mushy!

I’ve only had an ice cream cupcake one other time in my life, and that was at Maggie Moo’s where the cupcakes were a little too sweet. PhillySwirl’s were better. If you’re specifically looking for an Ice Cream Cupcake for a birthday party, etc I would recommend these.

Tomorrow, watch for a contest where you can win a box of PhillySwirls shipped right to your door!

I had the best ice cream cup cake in st thomas, vi believe it or not. There is a super premium local brand called Happy Face! I heard all about the brand from all the locals who boast about its high quality and unique flavors. It was certainly hard to choose a flavor – but i had to try the ice cream cupcake. The first one i tried was carrot cake, cheese cake ice cream and cream cheese frosting on top. Holy amaziness. Then i went for the peanut butter cup that had chocolate chip cake, peanut butter ice cream and a rich chocolate fudge on top. All i gottah say is im going back to st thomas just to eat one. Happy Face Ice Cream gave me one Happy Face.
