8 of 10
Description from Molly Moon’s web site: “We’re proud to accomplice with our associates at Hood Well-known Bakeshop once more and to carry again Calamansi Cream Cake, considered one of our hottest collaboration flavors. We use Hood Well-known’ selfmade calamansi curd, constructed from the calamansi citrus—a hybrid taste of kumquat and mandarin. We fold in large swirls of the curd into our candy cream ice cream together with bite-sized chunks of selfmade vanilla pound cake. Each chunk is luscious, contemporary, and irresistible!”
This was a Could 2023 seasonal taste.
Candy Cream Ice Cream/Calamansi Curd: The calamansi curd has largely mixed with the candy cream base, so I’ll evaluation them collectively.
The bottom has a candy, creamy, citrus taste that’s nicely balanced—gentle, fruity, refreshing. The feel is easy, not icy.
I’m unsure what a calamansi tastes like, however this pint does have a pleasant, gentle citrus taste to it. I see solely faint swirls of calamansi curd, not the “large swirls” from the pint description. The gentle citrus taste grew on me as I ate the pint—I needed extra once I was performed.
Vanilla Pound Cake Chunks: These chunks really have the flavour and texture of pound cake with a touch of vanilla to it.
I bought three big chunks, every perhaps an inch throughout. They’re gentle chunks—straightforward to chunk into, not soggy or icy.
Some ice cream flavors have generic doughy blobs they name cake items, however not this pint. These are nice cake chunks, flavorful and with a correct, dense pound cake texture.
Total: A pleasant, refreshing summery taste that may be improved with a thicker calamansi curd swirl and extra pound cake chunks. Molly Moons’ weblog suggests including their lemon curd topping, which seems like an incredible concept. I look ahead to sampling this one once more subsequent yr—with lemon curd on prime. Really useful.
