it is summer, time for ice cream and jumping about in large sized water containers. and of course root beer. so today you get a bonus review! woo hoo! almost every summer for the past 4 or so years i have purchased some sort of root beer ice cream with the intention of reviewing it. yet i have not done so yet i don’t think. it is an area of the root beer world that needs to be mined. and since i love ice cream AND root beer, i think i am the man for the job!
this one seems to be a pretty generic store brand. i have no idea where else it is available. i could probably check the website and see of course. when i bought it i thought it was a local brand so i had never seen it near me in central NJ, but there it was in the grocer’s freezer by my work. but now when i look at it closer i see it is a generic thing. oh well, no matter really. it is also a hybrid. vanilla ice cream with root beer sherbet. now, reading about what sherbet is from the authority on all things i have learned a lot. i of course have had sherbet before but i never knew it had to have between 1% and 2% dairy content and if it comes in between 2% and 10% it is then a “frozen dairy desert” which sounds rather scary to me. i think that subset needs a new name, feel free to suggest one.
so root beer sherbet seems interesting to me, they should sell that on its own really. that way i can maybe actually taste it. you see, i cannot taste much of any root beer flavor here at all. even in spoon fulls where the root beer part seems to be the vast majority, i get really nothing. really, not even a flavor of anything at all. the vanilla is actually pretty good and that saves this somewhat.
