I have a few reviews of products that I need to post about and I keep forgetting or other recipes keep winning the prized position so I decided to just bite the bullet and blog about them. I don't advertise on this blog and I tend to not do too many reviews unless it's a product I really like or want to try. That being said, the first review is Starbucks Ice Cream!
I was contacted by a marketing person for Starbucks
a few several weeks ago and they sent me coupons for their new line of Starbucks Ice Cream. I am a caffeine fiend and I love me a grande iced mocha no whip, or a grande pumpkin spice latte with two pumps, or a tall mocha frappuccino with a blended shot- no whip. Do you see where I'm going with this? I love Starbucks so I was thrilled to try their premium ice cream.
The reason it's taken me so long to blog about them is because Mr. H ate the first batch I bought so I had to buy more and take pics before he dove back in. I did manage to get 3 of the 4 ice cream flavors untouched. By the time I got to the Mocha Frappuccino flavor it was 3/4 gone!
So here are their flavors. I recommend trying them out this holiday season. If you're a coffee lover these will not disappoint! Thank you Starbucks!
Mocha Frappuccino- Swirled Coffee and Chocolate Ice Cream
This was Mr. H's favorite. He said he left me a few scoops to photograph but I went to scoop and I was barely able to get one melted scoop out. He loved this one because it was the perfect blend just like his favorite blended beverage.
Coffee- Swirled Coffee and Espresso Ice Cream
This one is nice for a coffee ice cream purist. No muss, no fuss just creamy coffee ice cream. This would be awesome served affogato style.
Caramel Macchiato- Swirled Coffee and Vanilla Ice Creams with Ribbons of Golden Caramel
The name says it all! This one was delicious. I don't generally like caramel but this one was GOOD. I was dieing (is that spelled right?) to make an apple pie for Thanksgiving just so I could serve this along side it. Wouldn't that be dreamy?
Java Chip Frappuccino- Coffee Ice Cream with Dark Chocolate Chunks
This one is perfect if you like chunky bits in your ice cream like I do. The coffee and chocolate go perfectly together.
