READER REVIEW: Ryan J's Review of BLVD Tasty's Cheesecake Brownie


The people at the High Road ice cream company have another line of ice creams they brand as "BLVD Tasty Ice Cream." They've popped up in town and I picked up a flavor - Cheesecake Brownie.


This is actually the second time I've bought this flavor. But the first time I tried it, there were no brownie chunk mix-ins. There were only a few brownie crumbs. I wasn't too disappointed though because the cream cheese ice cream base is really impressive and I knew that I probably just got an unlucky pint with no brownies. The texture of the ice cream is very creamy. Its a creaminess that doesn't come around often. The mixture does a great job of capturing all that is good about the raw cream cheese flavor, but leaves out that pungent cream cheese smell that sometimes emanates from your refrigerator or turns you off when nosing around too closely.


The second pint of this ice cream was kind enough to include some brownies. They were good-sized chunks. They were soft, chewy, fresh, and a nice compliment to the cream cheese base. This variety of BLVD Tasty may not be so consistent, but with or without the brownie mix-ins it is consistently tasty. I give it a B.

  1. Nothing like the label state. Banana split had NO chunks of chocolate (seriously, not one)! Tortoni also says amaretti cookies. None! Sticking to Talenti gelato!

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I was looking at those two flavors! Hope they've fixed that.
