Red Velvet Cake (Blue Bunny)
If you are anything like me, you sometimes make your grocery purchases based on the packaging alone. So when you see the big head of Duff Goldman (of Charm City Cakes fame) you are somewhat turned off. I mean. I don't want the picture of some tv cake star on my ice cream carton.
But I am so glad I decided to swallow my pride in favor of the lush, lush offerings of Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream.
It is the perfect blend of vanilla -- not too strong, not too weak -- with actual bits of red velvet cake. Imagine the beauty of red velvet cake (my favorite!) paired with great ice cream (uhm, also my favorite!) and you have the world's most perfect ice cream. The vanilla quality is of note because it doesn't take a back seat to the cake, and the cake doesn't lose its cakey-ness as a result of being married to the ice cream. These aren't chunks of ice, friends. This is the real deal.
One serving is not enough. This is the kind of ice cream you remove the lid from...and deposit the lid right into the trash can. You won't be needing it. The only requirement for this stuff is a spoon and about half an hour on the couch.
For those who are as turned off by Duff as I am, I suggest bringing along a sharpie, as well, and making a game of mustache-making while you're enjoying the delectable treat inside the carton.
At roughly $4/carton, I promise you will not regret a cent spent on this treat. It's great for your good days, and it's even better on your bad days. My only caution is if you have loved ones expecting a piece of this cake-filled ice cream, you better buy more than one.
