It feels like it has been way too long since my last ice cream review, so I decided I would start things up again with a personal favorite. Now, I’m a fan of all things coconut. If you’re not, you won’t like this ice cream. You may want try it because it has the words cookie dough. Hell, you might even talk yourself into trying it because of the mention – don’t. The base is coconut through and through. You’ve been warned.
For the rest of us coconut fans, this stuff is fantastic. The base ice cream is full of coconut flavor. The consistency is lighter than premium ice creams, and the ingredients do contain some gums – but it’s far from the frozen dairy dessert fluff you get with light ice creams.
There are a generous amount of large cookie dough pieces which are on part with any of the best you get from premium ice creams. The chocolate flake provides a great bittersweet flavor that appeared in a crackly ribbon throughout.
Purely Decadent’s Cookie Dough is deserving of a great grade for flavor alone, but it also has a good bit to offer nutritionally. The high saturated fat content can be attributed in part to medium chain triglycerides, and there is an ass-load of fiber to boot! Another warning – when I say ass-load, I mean it. Coconut milk and MCTs can cause a laxative effect in those unaccustomed. You may want to limit yourself to a few trial servings for the initial tasting, though you’ll want to finish the whole pint.
