Scoop 64: Edy’s Slow Churned French Silk

by Ice Cream Maker Reviews on July 29, 2006

As I mentioned in one of my Breyers reviews, the slow churned low fat ice cream is taking over America’s ice cream.  Soon, there will be no full-fat ice creams left.  Well, maybe not; but there are just as many (if not more) flavors of Edy’s Slow Churned in Safeway’s freezer as there are of regular Edy’s ice creams.  Since I was pretty impressed with the French Vanilla I had yesterday, I decided to give Edy’s Slow Churned French Silk a try.  I tasted this ice cream and was a little taken aback.  It tastes like coffee.   No French silk pie I have ever had tastes like coffee, but apparently that doesn’t matter.  Had I read the carton I would have noticed that it says “Mocha Mousse.”  The flavor of this ice cream is excellent.  And the texture is better than that of the vanilla.  It’s still kind of fluffy, but I’d expect that from something French Silk flavored.  At 140 calories and 4.5 grams of fat, Edy’s French Silk isn’t quite as good for you as Edy’s Slow Churned Vanilla, but it tastes much better.
