Product Review - Blue Bell Ice Cream Gingerbread House
To me, nothing says the holidays like the intoxicating smell of gingerbread! I'm a big fan! And this year seems to be the year of all-things-gingerbread for the Christmas season!
So, we started with cookies, now on to ice cream!!!
Blue Bell Ice Cream, that wonderful Texas-based ice creamery, has out a new flavor for the holidays - Gingerbread House ice cream!
A creamy cinnamon ice cream with flavorful gingerbread pieces, festive red and green sprinkles and miniature marshmallows all surrounded by a vanilla icing swirl.
Oh my gosh, this stuff is to die for! It's not too too terribly sweet, but has just the right amount of cinnamonto offset the vanilla-y flavor of the ice cream. The chunks of gingerbread pieces are generous, and the vanilla icing swirls are wonderful! The red and green sprinkles make it festive and give it a nice crunch!
The only thing I didn't particularly care for was the marshmallow pieces - I thought they tasted a bit like jelly-beans, but there weren't that many so it was easy to overlook this in the overall deliciousness of this treat!
If you are a gingerbread nut like me - You'll LOVE this ice cream! If you are an ice cream afficiando - you will LOVE this ice cream! But get it soon, it's for a limited time only!
Stay tuned for reviews of Blue Bell's two other Christmas ice creams flavors - Christmas Cookies and Pumpkin Spice Pecan!
