READER REVIEW: Timothy's Review of Ben & Jerry's Pumpkin Cheesecake

I was at Walmart and I was browsing the ice cream aisle. I saw a "Limited Batch" flavor of Pumpkin Cheesecake. Tis the season, I guess! I'm usually not the biggest pumpkin flavored type kind of guy, but this pint peaked my interest and I decided to check it out. It's described as "Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream with a Graham Cracker Swirl". Sounded simple enough and I decided to purchase it and try it out.


I took the lid off the pint and noticed the tan color of the base. I took a bite and was pleasantly surprised. Like I said before, I'm not the biggest pumpkin flavored fan, but this ice cream base was delicious. At first it tasted like a regular pumpkin pie, but then as I let it melt a little more, I caught the cheesecake part of it. You could pick out the distinct sour cream "tang". The graham cracker swirl was mixed throughout, and it worked perfectly. It gave just enough grit and texture to break up the rich ice cream base and it was full of buttery, sweet graham cracker goodness. I mowed through the pint pretty quick.


Overall, I thought this pint was very good. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would have. I would buy it again around the holiday season to get my once a year pumpkin fix. If you like all things pumpkin, this is right up your alley and you will probably love this!
