READER REVIEW: Timothy's Review of New Orleans Ice Cream Co. White Chocolate Bread Pudding

Every time I open my freezer, I am inundated with choices. After browsing through the dozen or so pints of ice cream in my freezer, I decided that I would try out New Orleans Ice Cream Co's White Chocolate Bread Pudding. This pint is described as "Our Version Of A New Orleans Classic Dessert Has Chunks Of White Chocolate Bread Pudding That Hints Of Custard And Bourbon Sauce". It's pretty rare that you find white chocolate flavors, so this one sounded unique. Here is how it tasted...

I took the lid off the pint and noticed the white custard base. I could see a tiny little bourbon swirl on top of the pint, too. I took a bite and noticed that this base was very dense compared to some of their other flavors. It comes in at 1040 calories per pint so it is definitely one of their more "rich" flavors. The base was smooth and creamy with a vanilla custard flavor. In my second bite, I came upon the bread pudding pieces. I got a familiar taste in my mouth. These little pieces of bread pudding tasted very similar to the donut pieces that are in their Cafe Au Lait and Beignets flavor. They had a little hint of cinnamon to them and when paired with the custard ice cream base, these kind of tasted like eating a rice pudding. During these first few bites, I also encountered the little pieces of white chocolate. They were scattered throughout the pint and added a good texture. They weren't the best white chocolate pieces I have ever had, but they were still tasty and worked well in this pint. I ate a few more bites and noticed that I had not tasted any of the bourbon swirl. Once the pint started getting a bit softer, and I got to digging/turning the ice cream, I found most of the bourbon swirl on the bottom of the pint. I'm glad I found it! It was very good! I'm not the biggest fan of alcohol infused ice creams but this bourbon sauce worked really well. It was a really thin sauce, kind of like a thin caramel/butterscotch sauce. It was tasty and worked well with the other flavors of this pint.

Overall, this pint was above average and for the most part, I enjoyed it! The custard base was really rich, smooth and creamy and the bread pudding pieces were delicious. The white chocolate pieces were just ok and I wish the bourbon swirl was layered better, but overall I thought the pint was A-OK!
