Potbelly Chocolate Malt Review

by Ice Cream Maker Reviews on November 13, 2007

Recently I have become semi-addicted to Potbelly Chocolate Malts.  (Is it possible to become semi-addicted?  That’s beside the point…).  Potbelly chocolate malts are just the right thickness and have just the right amount of malt powder.  There’s something about the taste of malt powder where you can easily have too little or too much; and the Potbelly malt lands right in between.
The thickness of the malt is also excellent.  It takes some effort to suck it up through a straw, but not too much effort.  Again, they’ve achieved that critical balance.
Oh, and who can forget the cookies?  Two minature shortbread cookies on the straw, mmm tasty.
My only complaint is the size.  It’s a smaller size cup, but it’s still too much.  After finishing an entire malt I feel like I’ve eaten way too much.  I need about three-quarters of the current size.  That would be the right amount.  I realize I could throw it away after I’ve eaten 3/4; but wouldn’t that be a waste??

  • Flavor: 5
  • Texture: 4
  • Originality: 2
  • Overall: 4
  • Cost: $2.86 at Potbelly

The first thing I thought when I saw Potbelly Malts was those little cookies. You can buy a box for $2 at the market, but there is something about them on your straw…

I tried Choctal ice cream yesterday, and I have to say that I was absolutely blown away! And I’m not even an ice cream eater, and I’m rarely eating any sweets.

First off, this is ultra high quality ice cream. It takes the ice cream experience to a whole new level. Unlike Haagen Daz and other national brands that have substantially diluted their quality for profit, Choctal uses high concentrated single source chocolate in their chocolate ice creams, and multiple levels of concentration of vanilla in its vanilla ice creams.

I did some research into this product, and found its website http://www.choctal.com. It turns out that its CEO, Marc Boatwright, travels to remote parts of the Costa Rican Rain Forest, Papua New Guinea, and other countries to look for the finest quality products. This company is very much into earth awareness, and assisting farms in third world countries.

I heard that Choctal is available in Trader Joes and Whole Foods. This is an absolute must for all ice cream lovers.
