It had been a while since I’d ventured to the PET Dairy section of the freezer aisle at my local supermarket, but their new Double Fudge Swirl was something that called my name from a far; especially given the epic swirls I’d seen in some of their other flavors. This one is described as vanilla flavored ice cream with fudge pieces swirled with butter fudge. The first two components were pretty straightforward. PET’s premium vanilla is simple, effective, and played well with the accompanying chocolate chips. As you can see from the picture below, the obvious highlight of this box was the butter swirl found concentrated near the middle. This viscous, fudge sauce is so overwhelming that it drowned out everything else involved in the bite, but that’s okay with us considering the taste. We didn’t necessarily pick up on much butter flavoring, but when combined with the other ingredients, this one was enough to warrant a B.

Caramel can be a difficult flavor to pull off, because although it can be initially attractive, it can turn into a swamp of a brown sugary morass. The downside is that it can be overpowering. With that mind, I dug into Edy’s Caramel Delight to see if it lived up to its name. The flavor promises a creamy caramel light ice cream brimming with thick swirls of sweet, sweet caramel.
For abundantly delicious reasons, it would seem that the Informant and the readership of the site are Graeter’s enthusiasts. Count me in, especially on account of the richness and gargantuan nature of the chocolate chips. The Columbus-based company promises the combination of French Port vanilla ice cream with their signature chocolate chips. You can smell the vanilla when you crack open the pint. The flavor is delightful from the top of the pint all the way down to the nadir.
Readers from across the country have been submitting Freezer Finds full of new Talenti flavors. So far Caramel Apple Pie, Raspberries & Cream, and even a Target Exclusive, Hazelnut, have joined Talenti's ever expanding lineup of gelato.
Blue Bell is at it again with the new flavor releases heading into March. This time they bring us Sea Salt Caramel: creamy vanilla ice cream surrounded by a tasty salted caramel sauce swirl.
In an announcement received via email earlier this week, Dairy Queen named Mint Oreo as the theme of their Blizzard of the Month for March 2014. This re-release comes equipped with smooth, minty vanilla soft serve and crunchy crumbled Oreo cookie pieces.
