Description from Walmart Web site: “…nothing makes us happier than this Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream. The goodness on this taste consists of cold-ground vanilla, jam from Oregon-grown strawberries, and items of shortcake. And when there’s this a lot goodness, it’s good for you. Most likely.”
This was a Restricted Version spring 2023 seasonal taste accessible solely at Walmart.
Vanilla-Strawberry Base: The bottom is nice and creamy. It has a strawberry taste with a touch of vanilla. The flavors are refined. You’ll be able to detect the strawberry however it’s not tremendous sturdy. The feel is easy and wealthy. I didn’t detect any iciness which you get typically with the fruit-flavored bases. A pleasant, gratifying, high quality base.
Maybe this was initially meant as vanilla base with a strawberry jam swirl. However, if that’s the case, the swirl has dissolved into the bottom solely. The tip result’s nice sufficient, however a thicker jam swirl may survive the trials of stocking on Walmart cabinets.
Shortcake Items: These are smooth and a bit gooey. I’m undecided if it’s undercooked or soggy from the bottom, but when I needed to guess I’d say it’s undercooked a bit. The flavour is that of generic cake taste—in step with most shortcake, in order that’s not essentially a criticism.
The cake items are largely medium-sized, although I did get one bigger chunk.
There are a reasonable quantity of chunks. Not sufficient for each spoonful, however I saved discovering items as I labored via my serving.
Total: The overall impact of this pint is blander than I hoped.
The shortcake chunks are fantastic, and their quantity is adequate. However they don’t add a lot taste. However that’s shortcake for you, I suppose.
And whereas the bottom is nice high quality, a stronger strawberry taste would’ve made this extra gratifying. There are a pair fixes. Incorporating freeze-dried strawberries into the bottom would actually intensify the flavour. Another choice: including a thick strawberry jam swirl that gained’t dissolve away into the bottom.
