As we wrap up our investigation of the worthwhile flavors from the recently released Sam's Choice super-premium ice cream lineup, Blackberry Crumble's description made it seem like we may have saved the best for last. Blackberry ice cream with pie crust pieces and blackberry ripple sounded like another ideal way to cool off this summer. While we're accustomed to thick, goeey swirls sticking to the lid of the pint as we pull them apart, our particular quart was missing most of its first layer, but considering we have eight servings to sort through, we continued on without holding any grudges.
The blackberry ice cream is a nice balance between sweet and tart that not only impersonates ripe blackberries but also provides a great foundation for the other ingredients. The super-sized swirls we've seen in the past from Sam's Choice were substituted for a more traditional blackberry ripple to accompany the blackberry base. The small bits of pie crust combined with the berry components created a sensation designed especially for summer. Even with all this, we've set high standards for Sam's Choice and we would have liked to have seen the mix-ins in the same quantity and recklessness as some of their other pints.
