REVIEW: Greenfield Toasted Almond


Sometimes our freezers are overflowing with ice cream to the point where some get lost in the mix. I'd photographed the pint of Toasted Almond from Greenfield Ice Cream Company months ago, but have just now gotten around to giving it the taste test. "Toasted almonds steep to create our almond flavored base and then we add lots of hand chopped toasted almonds." Plenty of almond themed ice creams have come have been captured by our lens, but hardly any showed the visual promise of Greenfield's version. The first layer quickly lets consumers know they did not skimp on the actual almonds.


As was necessary with many of the other Greenfield flavors, we suggest letting this one sit out for about 5 minutes to reach peak consistency. If almond ice creams (or nut based ice creams in general) are something you think you'd enjoy, Greenfield hits a home run. Each bite of the base has been fully permeated by the almond flavoring and the tons of chopped toasted almonds really brings the concept to full strength.


As a company that isn't really available in everyone's local food stores, Greenfield still deserves seeking out. If you're looking to order an ice cream that you wouldn't normally have access to, head on over to Greenfield Ice Cream's website and fill up your cart with A-rated flavors like such as their PB 'n Chip, Sticky Pecan, and Vanilla Honey Crumble. Toasted Almond narrowly missed the cut, but was still an absolute pleasure to review.
