The ice cream section at Whole Foods was unusually well-stocked today. Every other time Iâ€™ve been there the ice cream section is chaotic with brands and flavors either out-of-stock or in the wrong place. So, while I was there I made a point to look at all of the flavors. I found Edyâ€™s pints (again!!!), so I felt compelled to buy one. Though, like at 711, it only came in Strawberry, Vanilla, and Chocolate. Unlike 711, the pint was labeled as costing mere $2.29 (at 711 it was $4.29). Better yet, it rang up at the register as $1.97â€”not a sale price.
I havenâ€™t had plain chocolate ice cream in awhile, and forgot how much I enjoy it. The flavor of Edyâ€™s Grand chocolate was excellent. The texture, however, was lacking. It was a little grainy and far too light and airy for my liking. It doesnâ€™t really fill you up or satisfy a real ice cream craving the way Haagen Dazs or a homemade variety would. But, I did really enjoy the flavor.
As a final note, Iâ€™ve realized that I like ice cream so much itâ€™s hard for me to give any of it a bad review, and thus, my ratings may have become a little inflated recently. So, beginning today, I am going to try to hold the standard a little higherâ€¦
- Flavor: 4.5
