READER REVIEW: Timothy's Review of New Orleans Ice Cream Co. Bananas Foster


We always have bananas in our house. My son loves to eat them and I occasionally will have one. They aren't my favorite fruit, but I enjoy one from time to time. I was making my way through my remaining pints of New Orleans Ice Cream and came across this one. I figured I would try it out. Their version of Bananas Foster is described as "A classic New Orleans dessert is given life as real banana pieces are blended with a rich caramel ice cream, nutmeg and rum add depth to this delight."


I took of the lid and noticed the light yellowish tint to the ice cream as well as some swirls peeking below the surface. I took a bite and was happy! This ice cream was the perfect consistency (thanks to my weird freezer) that it was easy to scoop, a bit softer but not melted. I got a great flavor of their caramel ice cream as well as a hint of banana flavor. A couple of more scoops in, I ran across some pieces of the banana. They were smallish sized pieces but weren't too icy or crunchy. They were a nice addition. Throughout the pint, there were a couple of rum swirls. The rum flavor was a bit light and not too overpowering. I couldn't really pick out any of the nutmeg flavor, but whatever..the rest of the pint was good. The only negative was that a lot of the rum swirl was nestled at the bottom of the pint. The whole way down the pint, everything kept my interest.


Overall, I thought the pint was pretty tasty! It was a great mix of banana and caramel! I would buy it again!
