My favoite flavor should really be renamed my favorite passion. I can;t get enough of Blue Bunny’s Chocolate. This is the kind of ice cream you eat at midnight. Out of the carton. By yourself – with a soup ladle.
Blue Bunny has a variety of different flavors. Sure I was seduced by their turtle one , a creamy vanilla cut through with nuts, chocolate and caramel. I flirted with their fresh vanilla. I was seduced my their Neapolitan sandwiches, complete with not only chocolate but also strawberry and vanilla ice cream.
Yet it was chocolate that won my heart This is a dense seductive frozen fantasy that screams “Cocoa!”. It starts out as a very delicate light flavor but roll it around in your mouth and – pow – it’s like the best Godiva bar ever! It’s so intense that it has to be eaten alone. I could never sully its’ pure taste with Smuckers or Hershey’s syrup. That would be insulting it. It is excellent on it’s own. Not only is the taste superb but the texture is perfection as well. It doesn’t have that watery feel or is covered with ice crystals. It is solid even when it’s in my mouth and then melts into a milky smoothness. Blue Bunny’s chocolate is actually the perfect ice cream to make into an ice cream pie because it maintains its’ solidity for a long time.
There is one guilty pleasure that I do add to this frozen ambrosia – cola. Any kind will do but Pepsi seems to be the best with it. There’s nothing like making an ice cream soda with Blue Bunny chocolate ice cream. There’s just the right amount of foam (about three honking big inches) and then the sweet taste of the soda and the chocolate blending. It’s even better to add more ice cream to prolong that yummy taste. I don’t have this treat often. If I did I’d be wearing muumuus the size of Detroit. It’s a high in calories dessert or snack that I can’t afford.
I suppose I could make it healthy and add some fresh strawberries and raspberries. Tart fruit would certainly complement the rich chocolate flavor. This would also be a wonderful dessert , wrapped up in an unassuming crepe. Again, this would be a once in blue moon kind of treat. I would probably eat all the crepes up, stuffing them to the gills with the ice cream.
Will I ever be seduced by another Blue Bunny flavor? Doubt it. It’s kind of like me leaving my crush for Daniel Day-Lewis and getting the hots for Larry the Cable Guy. Ain’t gonna happen.
