Scoop 17: Chocolate Peanut Butter at MaggieMoo’s

by Ice Cream Maker Reviews on 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. Like Cold Stone Creamery, MaggieMoo’s does “mix-ins,” one free mix-in per cone. Tonight I opted for just plain ice cream though and I’m glad I did. MaggieMoo’s Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream was some of the best I’ve had since I started eating an ice cream a day over two weeks ago. Unlike other brands’ chocolate peanut butter ice creams, MaggieMoo’s is completely smooth. The smoothest, creamiest ice cream I’ve had in the past two weeks. The flavor was an excellent mix of chocolate and peanut butter, neither overpowering the other. It was extremely rich and had a more intense flavor than I expected. The only disappointment was the cone. I don’t know what the deal is, but no one seems to be able to get their cones right. My sugar cone was definitely stale. It tasted really good in terms of flavor, but the crunchiness was almost like chewing on Styrofoam. (Ok, it wasn’t quite as bad as Styrofoam, but I’m growing bitter at companies’ inabilities to have fresh cones.) Maggie Moo’s also offers cake cones for the same price as a sugar cone, but I have always preferred sugar. Maybe next time I will give the cake cone a whirl, or better yet, just play it safe and stick to the ice cream.
