I've been wanting to try Turkey Hill's Movie Night Ice Cream for a while now. It's popcorn flavored with popcorn and praline peanuts and vanilla flavored with caramel. It's one of the craziest flavors I have heard of in a long time so I knew I had to post about it.
It was hard to find it though -- I think that it was pulled off the shelves because of the peanut recall...but peanut recall begone!...it's back on the shelves and though my freezer is filling up with my own frozen creations I had to buy it when I saw it at the store.
Ok, so the truth? The vanilla caramel side is almost gone. The popcorn side? Yeah, that's still there. It probably won't go fast. I should have known I wouldn't really like it. I never really liked buttered popcorn jelly beans and that's what it reminds me of.
What was most interesting was the popcorn in the mix. It was kind of like my rice krispies -- they got kind of soft and soggy. While some (such as my husband) like soggy things, I don't. I don't even like milk in my cereal for that very reason -- I hate the sog!
Anyway, I "half" liked this flavor...
While writing this post, I asked husband to try it. What does he think? "It tastes like popcorn...there's popcorn in it! Mmmmm. Soggy popcorn. I like soggy popcorn...!" See? I told you! I asked what he thought of the vanilla caramel side. "There are two halves? You mean I have to try the right? This ice cream is perfect for us! I like the left, and you like the right! Except if you turn it around, then I like the right, and you like the left..." Hey, that's just what I was hoping he would say! (The caramel is "way too sweet" for him.) This is a match made in heaven.
