REVIEW: Publix Premium Peanut Butter Pie (Limited Edition)


Our latest review from the freezers of Publix comes in the form of yet another limited edition half-gallon. Publix Premium's Peanut Butter Pie brings together peanut butter pie ice cream with swirls of Mackinac peanut butter cookie ribbon and milk chocolate flakes. Similarly themed ice creams such as the legendary Peanut Butter Pie limited edition from Haagen Dazs and Front Porch's My-O-My Peanut Butter Pie have done very well within our rankings system so now we'll see how this supermarket branded version stacks up.


In order to receive a high ranking without a clear-cut pie crust component involved, the cookie ribbon will have to carry some serious star-power. Our first glance shows little of the aforementioned ribbon, but that doesn't last long once our scoop peels away the top layer. At 210 calorie per serving, the peanut butter base has a nice, acceptable feel and a simple, effective taste.


The highlight of this flavor was undoubtedly the Mackinac peanut butter cookie ribbon. The taste and texture was similar to some of the cookie swirls we've seen in offerings from Ben & Jerry's, but we didn't pick up much peanut butter flavoring; just a nice contrasting crunchy chocolate. The milk chocolate flakes hindered the whole experience more than helped. The texture of these small bits of chocolate are rock-hard, add minimal flavoring and could have easily been excluded in exchange for more of the cookie ribbon. While this isn't the best peanut butter pie ice cream we've encountered, it was still very enjoyable.
