Root beer float ice cream
I was out of town when Polly Campbell first wrote about the new UDF flavors, but wow, they're worth a try! They're root beer float, red creme soda float, and cherry cola float. I was at Kroger the other night, and some guy was scouring the ice cream shelves. "What are you looking for?" I asked. "Red creme soda - but I think I already got the last one." He was so excited that I had to try it.
I thought the combination of root beer sherbet and vanilla ice cream would be gross, but really, it tastes just like the real thing! And having everything the same consistency and temperature (as opposed to actual liquid root beer and super cold ice cream) makes it that much better. I am impressed. (Read the UDF press release here.)
I saw some interesting Graeter's flavors too. But it looks like chocolate almond is only around till the end of February. Check out the seasonal flavors here.
Thank goodness no one's pulling an Iron Chef and marketing salmon ice cream for Lent.
