I only have about 3 pints of New Orleans Ice Cream left in my freezer. Tonight it was time for Ponchatoula Strawberry! This flavor is described as "A smooth & creamy strawberry ice cream bursting with the freshest Ponchatoula strawberries".
I removed the lid and noticed the whiteish/light pink base with a few strawberries trying to peek through. I took a bite and immediately liked the texture. It was nice and smooth and creamy. The first initial impression was that this tasted like a Yoplait Strawberry Yogurt. It was more savory than sweet for an ice cream. I like strawberry yogurts, so this was fine with me. Throughout the pint, I ran across a ton of actual pieces of strawberry. Halfway down the pint, I ran into a huge half of a strawberry. It was a welcome sight. The strawberries are just sweet enough to keep you interested down the whole pint.
Overall, this pint was enjoyable but I think it needed to be a bit sweeter in order for me to purchase it in the future. It would be refreshing on a hot Summer day but it definitely isn't one of their best flavors out there. If you are a die hard strawberry fan, it may be worth picking up and trying out!
