READER REVIEW: Timothy's Review of Three Twins Lemon Cookie
After a fantastic pint of Three Twins Sea Salted Caramel, I decided to try out another one of their flavors. Who knew that organic ice cream could be so good? I went to my Sprouts Market and there were a few options available. They all looked good, but today, the Lemon Cookie stood out above all the rest. I had read a couple of reviews on that particular flavor and it sounded unique and delicious. I grabbed the pint and headed out to my car. Here is how it was……..
Lemon Cookie is described as “Lemon ice cream with vanilla sandwich crème cookies”. I opened the pint and noticed the creamy white colored base. It looked like a few tiny cookie pieces were peeking through the top layer, too. This pint held up pretty well for a short car ride and it was soft enough to dive into but it was not melty enough to be soupy. (The last pint of Sea Salted Caramel was melting a lot more/faster than this one.) I took a bite of the ice cream and was pleasantly surprised. I’m usually not the biggest fan of lemon flavored things, but this ice cream was knock my socks off good! My first initial taste was that of a frozen key lime or lemon meringue pie. The lemon flavor was just tart enough to remind you that it was a lemon ice cream, but the sweet cream base balanced it out perfectly. No sour/pucker faces going on around here and the lemon flavor didn’t linger. It kind of said, “Hi!” and then “Bye” all within a few seconds. It was really delicious! I encountered some of the cookie pieces next. The vanilla cookie pieces played well against the lemon ice cream. They were softer, layered pieces of cookie and they worked well. I got a few nice sized chunks throughout the pint that I could bite into and chew, but for the most part, the cookies were a smooth, soft batter. They were not overly sweet and they provided great texture throughout the pint! This pint stayed nice and creamy throughout without much melting. The ice cream base was much smoother than the previous flavor I had. It doesn’t feel heavy though. The whole pint only contains 840 calories! I was definitely impressed!
Overall, I was shocked at how much I liked this flavor! I could not stop eating the pint and wished I had a little bit more even after the spoon hit the bottom. My first 2 experiences with Three Twins have been fantastic! I can’t wait to try out their other flavors and see if they stack up to being as good as this pint!
