Ben & Jerry's Karamel Sutra Core Ice Cream Review - 4

If this sad excuse for a new flavor was my intro to the Core line, I never would've tried a second. It's just weak Salted Caramel made even worse by out-of-place chocolate which takes over the pint.

Michielan La Gelateria Artigianale Pistachio Gelato Review - 9

Pretty phenomenal flavor-wise, if a bit traitorous to the Italian tradition aside from the gimmick of pistachios along the top.
Proudly made in Italy (admittedly with a lot of junk*, but appreciate the percents and the rationales) and even more proudly purchased at Costco.






*ingredients: skimmed milk rehydrated, sugar, glycose syrup, coconut oil, cream (5%), pistachio paste and granule for decoration (1.4%), dextrose, emulsifiers: mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids, propylene glycol esters of fatty acids; stabilizers: guar gum, locust bean gum, tera gum, natural flavors; colors: curcumin, copper complexes of chlorophyll.

Edy's Vanilla Chocolate (Vanilla & Chocolate Sitting in a Tree*) Grand Ice Cream Review - 5

Are people that against Strawberry that they can't jump for Neapolitan, yet indecisive enough on chocolate vs. vanilla that this seems like a logical choice. Not much to report, literally the sum of its parts.



*You've got to be kidding me...
