REVIEW: JC's Caramel Apple Crumble Pie Pops


We've really been enjoying the plethora of novelty items littered about a few of our local specialty food market's freezer aisles. Compared to the outrageous number of carton contained ice creams we've reviewed, the ice cream sandwiches and ice cream bars consistently score higher marks. Combining the tastes and textures of exceptional ice cream with an outer layer of mix-ins gives even distribution of all components at the ideal ratios. One of our new favorites comes from a company we discovered a few months ago: JC's Pie Pops. After reviewing the Key Lime version a while back, we moved on to the sensational sounding Caramel Apple Crumble. These pops feature a smooth apple ice cream dipped in a rich caramel, cinnamon apple and oatmeal cookie crust.


The circular shape of these specialty made pops gives easy access to plenty of stick-free bites before having to abandon the wooden handle; just another great aspect of JC's Pie Pops. Apple ice cream isn't a thing we see often and this was a great example of exactly how it should be done. The smooth, high-quality base only gets better with the outer coating. Gobs of caramel sauce come together with cinnamon apple and oatmeal cookie crunchy crumbs to bring the caramel apple theme full circle. The only problem with these ice cream pops is that they disappear far too quickly and there are only two to a box.
