I trying to sample each of Greater's Ice Cream flavors as all are not in my local supermarket. This time it was Peanut Butter Chip, Coconut Chip and three sorbets: raspberry, strawberry and lemon. The Peanut Butter Chip is wonderful and even better if you sandwich it in between a Fairytale Brownies Chocolate Chip brownie. Much better than a Reese's Peanut Butter cup as you're indulging not only in the brownie but dark chocolate instead of the cheap milk chocolate that they use.
I do not like coconut. I couldn't believe my reaction to the Coconut Chip! It's not that "palm oil" taste that I get from the chips used in other ice creams but shredded coconut. This is by far better than a Mounds as it doesn't have that oily taste that I get from a Mounds bar.
Now to the sorbets. They tasted true to the flavor. However....I just found them much too sweet for my palate. I'm going to try making a smoothie using milk to help calm it down. Or perhaps mix with vanilla ice cream for a sherbert....nah...still too sweet. Doesn't work with a brownie. Perhaps a scoop in my cold cereal as a fruit substitute. I'll figure it out.
Hey, I just saw Rich Graeter on The View as part of ice cream month. His ice cream was featured first!
