Pint Description from the Molly Moon’s Web site: “Our Berry Cobbler ice cream is a stupendous instance of all of the love we put into our ice cream flavors. Each element of our ice cream is made in our neighborhood scoop store kitchens, and this taste is not any exception.
For this taste we use recent natural cranberries from Loads Farm in Grayland, WA in addition to raspberries and blueberries we bought and froze through the peak of this previous summer season. These berries are became a darkish perky jam. In the meantime we bake trays of heat flaky buttery cream scones. The scones are damaged into chunk sized chunks, and we fold them and the jam right into a vanilla ice cream flecked with vanilla beans.”
Vanilla Ice Cream/Berry Jam: It is a dense ice cream base that advantages from tempering. The jam is infused all through the vanilla ice cream; so there’s actually not a lot separation between the 2 and subsequently, there’s no approach to discuss them individually.
In response to the pint description, the jam incorporates cranberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Small bits of fruit are apparent all through. It’s candy, fruity, and refreshing. You possibly can’t actually distinguish the flavour past a common “berry” taste. Generally cranberry may be too daring, too tart, and overwhelm different berries, however it wasn’t an issue right here.
The bottom texture itself is creamy and wealthy. It’s not icy even with all of the added fruit.
Thicker swirls of jam may need resulted in a bolder jam taste and a extra discernible vanilla base taste. Mixing the jam and vanilla base collectively a lot has diluted the jam and vanilla flavors to a single taste to some extent.
Buttery Cream Scones: These are large honking scone chunks, as you may see from the cross part photos. The chunks are cubes a minimum of an inch throughout on both sides.
They’re tender sufficient to chunk into, however by no means soggy. They keep that dry, stable texture of scones regardless of their time on this base—a pleasant trick.
They scones have a robust butter taste. They aren’t very candy. However that’s typical of a scone. I get pleasure from them—that bland however reassuring carb hug of a scone. The berry jam and the scones work very well collectively—a pleasant mixture.
My half pint serving incorporates 4 massive scone chunks. It doesn’t sound like lots, however due to their massive measurement, I used to be greater than happy with this mix-in ratio.
Total: Molly Moon’s Berry Cobbler is a seasonal month-to-month taste in November 2022. The bottom vanilla base would possibly profit from much less mixing with the berry jam to maintain the vanilla and berry flavors extra separate and distinct. The large scone chunks redeemed this pint, enjoying properly towards the berry jam and wealthy ice cream, making for an pleasant winter pint. 8.5/10.
