REVIEW: A McConnell's Christmas, Part 6 of 6 - Double Peanut Butter Chip


The pint above marks the end of our McConnell's Christmas. While we're sad to see the holidays and our own collection of ice cream come to an end, Double Peanut Butter Chip was intentionally our last to be reviewed. Out of the six pints we received from the McConnell's Online Store, the following description sounded the best based on my personal tastes, "Central Coast, grass-fed milk and cream meets savory, salty nuttiness in this especially well-balanced blend of rich, creamy, salty peanut butter folded into smooth and indulgent peanut butter ice cream. Then comes the capper. Copious amounts of bittersweet chocolate. Peanut butter ice cream lovers? We've heard your pleas."


We'd already become accustomed to the top-notch consistency and feel that McConnell's ice creams bring to the table, as well as the effectiveness of their chocolate chips, but the addition of peanut butter was even more impressive than we'd anticipated. The base was full-bodied, rich and practically perfect.


The texture added by the broken bits of chocolate, as well as the complementary taste, came together with the globs of peanut butter to create the ideal additions to my personal favorite base from McConnell's. Because of the small stature of the mix-ins, they're included in every bite, no matter how much you collect on your spoon. So if you do have access to McConnell's and only want to splurge on a singular pint, we'd suggest this one.

  1. If I had to recommend just one McC's flavor to try it'd be vanilla. Specifically their golden state vanilla. To me, it's a great reminder why vanilla is classic. I do love DBPBC, though. Great photos as usual.
