I’ve never really been a big fan of these ice-creams chock-full of other stuff as I find that they are over-priced and actually, rather easy to replicate on our own. However, after reading a few food blog entries on it, I was tempted to give it another go.
We sampled many of the ice-cream flavours and I really liked the cheesecake and peanut butter flavours. The birthday cake flavour was really more like sweetened milk for me. One thing that really stood out after all the sampling was the quality of the ice-cream – it’s definitely more creamy and the texture is significantly thicker than many other ice-cream outlets. As with most American ice-creams, the flavours are usually rather intense!
I finally settled on:
I liked that the pecan chunks were big enough to give the ice-cream some texture and the caramel and butter was just wonderful together. You can imagine how sweet the entire mixture was though, so I was thankful for the pecan which helped to even out the sweetness. Frankly, I have no idea where the health bar was in this mix.
Yes, I decided to pamper myself, hence I threw in the $1 for the waffle cup and it was definitely a worthwhile investment! The waffle was so crispy and didn’t go soggy even as the ice-cream melted!
Marble Slab Creamery is also famous for their milkshakes. In fact, they had a milkshake 50% offer during their anniversary a few weeks back.
Tom’s Palette is still my favourite ice-cream place though and Cocogelo ranks a close second. I go for unique local flavours, affordability and a texture that’s lighter as compared to Marble Slab Creamery.
