REVIEW: PET Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

In the past we've found that the unassuming blue cartons and boxes put out by PET Dairy have held some pretty impressive creations. Flavors like Chocolate Cream Cupcake and Cookies N' Cream Extreme were even able to obtain top grades. That led us to further analyze some of the more unassuming titles in their lineup in an attempt to find a few more hidden gems. It wasn't until we took a closer look at the description of their unassuming Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough that we realized we had been missing out on a flavor featuring a cookie flavored base.

REVIEW: Sam's Choice Moose Tracks

We consider Moose Tracks somewhat of a mercenary service for store-brand ice creams. Some underachieving, low-fat flavors call upon this famous fudge to help escalate their effectiveness. So what happens when Moose Tracks fudge is added to a super-premium ice cream that could already hold its own? Sam's Choice is here to let us find out for ourselves. After cranking out A-rated flavors like Coffee & Donuts, Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake and Sea Salt Caramel we were looking forward to this combination of vanilla ice cream with famous Moose Tracks fudge and peanut butter cups.

REVIEW: Blue Bell Pineapples & Homemade Vanilla

At this point in our blog's existence there aren't many Blue Bell flavors that we haven't been able to track down. A few weeks ago though, one of our local supermarkets started to carry some of their less known flavors like Lemon, Mango and the carton shown above: Pineapples & Homemade Vanilla. We've already covered Blue Bell's classic Homemade Vanilla flavor in another review, where it scored very well for a premium base-only vanilla. One of Homemade Vanilla's best attributes is how easily it can be enhanced with just a little help from home. In this case, Blue Bell does the work for you by adding just one key ingredient.

REVIEW: Friendly's Black Raspberry

Despite Friendly's inability to obtain anything over an average rating with their Coconut and Black Cherry Chocolate Chunk flavors, they had served as sensational bases to add in our own mix-ins. Keeping that in mind, it wasn't long before we were tempted enough to try their Black Raspberry as well. Graeter's Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip had shown us how amazing this purple-colored ice cream could be, so we were hoping Friendly's version could at least come in close taste-wise. Our first bite brought on that familiar flavor we yearned for, but the consistency was far inferior to that of the French pot process used by Graeter's.
