While we haven’t reached hot summer weather, yet — we are looking forward to those long lazy days that will be here before we know it. I know we’ll be visiting the ice cream stand on many occasions to enjoy our favorite summer treat — Perry’s Ice Cream! This year, Perry’s has some delicious new ice cream flavors to excite your taste buds and they were awesome enough to send over a few pints for our family to review! You Rock, Perry’s!
Being a Perry’s Taste Tester has it’s advantages :) On to the new flavors!
I’m going to start with our family’s two favorite flavors — Queen of hearts and Movie Time. First off, if you are thinking that popcorn flavored ice cream sounds gross– think again. Surprisingly, Movie Time has to be my favorite out of all these new flavors. It’s buttery with hints of sea salt, caramel swirls and caramel truffles — oh is it ever good. I would eat this over real popcorn any day of the week .
Queen of Hearts is my other favorite, I really really love the dark chocolate ice cream, it’s got an intensely deep chocolate tastes that’s super enhanced by the raspberry swirls and little fudge filled hearts. This is an ice cream delicious enough to make you swoon! :)
I can’t think about Summer without thinking about my Gramma’s cherry tree. She used to ask us to go out and shake it to try and pick the cherries before the birds go them all — fun times! These next two new Perry’s flavors both feature the tasty little cherry.
Black Cherry Ice Cream is a pretty purple color and is from Perry’s All-Natural line, which means no high fructose corn syrup or preservatives. It has a smooth, creamy and fresh taste that kids and adults love. The chunks of black cherry are super yummy!
Oh My, Cherry Pie Ice Cream is really different and we all loved it! I thought it truly did taste like eating a bowl of cherry pie — with the graham cracker and cherry swirls, it’s pretty and fun!
Last, but certainly not least are two more ice cream flavors that we will definitely be enjoying again soon.
I do have a milk sensitivity so while I enjoyed all of these new flavors, I was really excited to sample the Lactose Free vanilla. Being able to enjoy ice cream without worrying about an upset belly is nice! Perry’s didn’t disappoint, the lactose free was creamy and good with a great vanilla flavor.
I think my hubby said that the Sponge candy Ice Cream was his favorite — my daughter did at first until she tasted Movie time so it’s still a toss up to which is the absolute favorite (we love them all!). This interesting ice cream has bits of sponge candy pieces along with caramelized sugar swirls — it’s really good!
My daughter loves the cake flavored ice cream that we found for her to have at her birthday last year, so when these Party Sandwiches showed up, she was excited to try them out. The cake flavored ice cream is sandwiched between two vanilla flavored wafers and has colorful sprinkles scattered throughout. I was worried they would be too sweet but they aren’t they really do taste like cake with frosting and are a fun treat for the kids.
Now here’s the sad thing — only the Party Sandwiches, Lactose Free Vanilla and Black Cherry Ice Cream flavors are available in stores! Don’t worry, you can still try the other flavors — but you’ll have to visit your local Ice Cream stand because they’re only available there March through September! (My daughter says there is something seriously wrong with this and I tend to agree, I want to eat Movie Time ice cream in the winter too!)
Check out the Perry’s product locator to see if Perry’s Ice Cream is available near you. you may also use the “search for ingredient” function in the flavor locator. This means if you wanted to know all chocolate Perry’s flavors or all flavors that include walnuts – now you can! The search works for any ingredient or even allergen!
