FREEZER FINDS: New Limited Edition Flavors From Publix Premium -- Lemon Sugar Cookie, Black Swamp Raspberry Cheesecake and Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Publix Premium is always churning out new, limited edition flavors throughout the year, but one of our readers found three new offerings I've yet to see before: Lemon Sugar Cookie, Black Swamp Raspberry Cheesecake and Pineapple Upside Down Cake.

Lemon Sugar Cookie: Lemon Sugar Cookies & Ribbons of Vanilla Icing
Black Swamp Raspberry Cheesecake: Raspberry Cheesecake Ice Cream with Raspberry Filled Chocolate Cups and Graham Cracker Crust Swirl
Pineapple Upside Down Cake: Pineapple Upside Down Cake Ice Cream With Swirls of Brown Sugar Pineapple Ribbon and Upside Down Cake Pieces Throughout

  1. I remember Publix having a Lemon Sugar Cookie light ice cream which they discontinued. I would not be surprised if this is a re-release of that flavor. This would not be the first time that a year round flavor became a limited edition (for example Pina Colada, Peppermint Stick).

    1. I definitely think Publix makes some of their flavors limited edition simply to boost sales, but it's probably working. The catchy artwork on the outside of the cartons definitely catches your attention.

    2. I remember when they made Peppermint Stick which was a year round flavor into a limited edition and I almost bought it for the box artwork alone. The box artwork for the limited editions are so interesting that I would like to see what the other year round flavors would look like if they were limited editions.

  2. The pineapple upside down cake...is delicious! The only thing I wish about it...is that it had some actual pineapple pieces in it...not just a swirl of pineapple, brown sugar.
    But other than that...worth buying....especially if you like the cake itself :)

    1. I really need to make my way to a Publix specifically for the Pineapple Upside Down Cake. That flavor appealed to me the most out of any of the new offerings. I really enjoyed Front Porch's take on Pineapple Upside Down Cake and I'm sure this would be just as good if not better.

  3. They were on sale 2/$7 so I just tried the Black Swamp Raspberry Cheesecake and one I haven't seen mentioned - New Orleans Caramel Praline. I enjoyed the Black Swamp Raspberry Cheesecake "Rasberry cheesecake ice cream swirled with mackinac chocolate graham crust and black raspberry filled chocolate cups sprinked throughout". I didn't really get any taste of cheesecake from the ice cream base and it tasted like a black raspberry flavor to me. It was not tart at all, just sweet. Althought the description doesn't specify black vs red raspberry anyway. However, biting into the black raspberry filled chocolate cups did give a little gush of a tarter raspberry flavor. The mackinac chocolate graham crust was very unique and I think the part I like the most. The graininess of the graham crust added an interesting texture. (1/2 cups - 200 kcals). I would give it a B. I probably wouldn't get again just because I am more of an anything-with-chocolate-and/or-peanut-butter-flavor fan.

    The New Orleans Caramel Praline was okay. It is described as "brown sugar-flavored ice cream with swirls of thick caramel and crunchy praline pecans". There was nothing impelling about it to make me get it again. I loved the sugary, crunchy pralines. That was the best part of it. The gobs of caramel were plentiful but not all that impressive a caramel taste. A taste of the ice cream base by itself would not make me think it was brown sugar-flavored. To me, it did not have any kind of strong flavor to it. I would give it a C+ Although, I don't think you do pluses/minuses? I definitely liked the Black Swamp Raspberry Cheesecake better so I guess it would have to be a flat C.
    (1/2 cups = 180 kcals)

    I will still have to try the Lemon Sugar Cookie!

    1. Thanks for the detailed reviews! I've been contemplating which limited flavor I'm going to pick up next.

      You should definitely try Lemon Sugar Cookie. It was excellent!

  4. I wouldn't waste my money and ice cream calories on the Limited Editions Strawberry Shortcake or Peach Cobbler. Both are like vanilla ice cream with a few bits and pieces here and there of peach with I think it was supposed to be like cinnamon sugar pie crust pieces for the cobbler and then the other had bits of strawberry in it. Disappointing!

    1. That's disappointing to hear. I was probably going to go with the Pineapple Upside Down Cake next.
