Happy Sunday y’all! Somehow it’s already October – this quarantine creep has definitely turned into every day just blurring together. I must admit, I committed the biggest food blogger sin when I bought these Blue Bunny Load’d Cones… I ate all of them without taking a single picture of what they actually look like. I KNOW, I KNOW, you’d think after 8 years off and on of this place that I would know better, but sometimes you just find yourself eating an ice cream cone in the middle of the night, 4 times over. I am not proud, but here we are.
I will admit, I bout these in lieu of buying the box of Drumsticks I had my eye on. It is pretty rare that I buy actual dairy ice cream, so when I do, I usually tend to go for something that I know will be worth the possible pain later but with 2X the mix-ins of two of my favorite things together (chocolate and peanuts (and/or peanut butter) how could I resist?
I don’t know if this is true of Blue Bunny ice cream or if it was my freezer, but this dessert never really firmed up for me. I like that the ice cream was soft, but in this instance, it was a little too soft for my liking. I also found the wrapper frustrating because some of the ice cream went along with once removed, though don’t worry, I licked it off like the animal that I am.
The ice cream is soft and creamy, with a really nice rich vanilla flavor. The blend of chocolate, peanuts, and caramel was well balanced down to the last bite. The only thing that I would change would be to make the peanut halves salty. This may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I really feel a tiny bit of salt would have really elevated the flavor on this to the next level. Plain peanuts always read cheap filler to me, so having plain peanuts sprinkled in just don’t really do it for me.
Overall I thought these were pretty tasty but if the soft ice cream is part of the package and not a me problem, be sure to eat these quickly once removed from the freezer or you will have a mess on your hands, literally.
