Review: Limited Edition Turkey Hill Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream & Awkward Armrest Maneuvers, Continued
Junk Food Nation, after yesterday’s post about awkward armrest situations, the Junk Food Gal told me one of her moves when someone is hogging the armrests:
“What you do is you wait for the person next to you to shift in their seat, move around go for soda, or whatever…and then the SECOND their arm lifts from that armrest my arm’s in there! Like a ninja! And then when they go to put their arm down, and they see mine there, and then they look up at me…I’m just staring ahead, watching the movie.”
LOL, and that’s why she is the Junk Food Gal.
Also, I recently received a very nice tweet that a reader based their midweek grocery list on what me and another reviewed on Tuesdays. Well, I have a good one for you today.
Today’s junk food: Limited Edition Turkey Hill Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream!
I have to be honest, I’m not sure if this Limited Edition Turkey Hill Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is new. It very well may not be. But I’d heard of this flavor for a while now…I think the guys over at On Second Scoop mentioned it to me, or maybe Twitter friend Will did…in any case, I’ve been hearing about this flavor. And I needed it….NEEDED IT.
And then, RANDOMLY, at a Giant grocery in Germantown, Maryland….THERE IT WAS. ROWS OF IT. TURKEY HILL PUMPKIN PIE ICE CREAM. And the angels sing.
Limited Edition Turkey Hill Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is an addition to really a very scarce number of Pumpkin Pie related reviews on this blog. It’s one of my favorite flavors, I don’t know why I haven’t done more. Anywho.
People do pumpkin pie ice cream really differently. Sometimes it’s pumpkin ice cream, sometimes its swirled with “whipped cream” ice cream, like Perry’s (as reviewed by On Second Scoop). For me, the CRUST is crucial.
Not much of a description of the side of this Limited Edition Turkey Hill Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream…
One sign this Limited Edition Turkey Hill Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is legit…PUMPKIN PUREE! Awesome. No “natural flavors”….actual puree. So key.
When I opened this tub, I could smell the cinnamon and pumpkin spice. Love it. I couldn’t help myself…even before taking pictures, I dug into this Limited Edition Turkey Hill Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream. I had to.
Because this Limited Edition Turkey Hill Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream was AWESOME!!!!! Holy moly, this may, and I don’t say this lightly, this may be my favorite, FAVORITE, ice cream flavor ever. EVER.
First of all, the pumpkin ice cream tasted extremely pumpkin-y, and was full of cinnamon spice. Not overpowering, but exactly the right balance to make me feel like it tasted like Pumpkin Pie. And it TASTED like it was pie ala mode, because I was EATING ICE CREAM – so the milky creaminess added so much more to the flavor.
But the REAL star of this Limited Edition Turkey Hill Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is the SWIRL. WOOOOO BABY, the SWIRL. The swirl was STRONG cinnamon graham cracker crust. It added the PERFECT amount of cinnamon spice burst to each bite, and basically tasted just like pie crust, in texture and in substance. The swirl was perfect. I appreciate that – Turkey Hill didn’t go for chunks of crust and cinnamon swirl, they baked that cinnamon INTO the crust and made the swirl OUT OF the crust. GENIUS.
Seriously folks, this ice cream was legit. LEGIT. This is a DEFINITE re-buy….if I can find it!
