REVIEW: Little Debbie Turtle Brownies, Apple Fruit Pies, and Chocolate Chip Creme Pies Ice Lotions


Conceptually, the concept of Little Debbie Ice Cream is fairly fantastic. You’re taking everybody’s favourite low-rent snack cake, deconstruct it into nuggets or swirls, and commingle it with a complimentary ice cream taste from Hudsonville Ice Cream. Sadly, the execution simply isn’t all the time there. The “icing” from the Zebra Cake selection, for instance— which I feel is identical stuff from the stomach of the Strawberry Shortcake Roll— assumes an odd and unsightly consistency when married with the ice cream; the rainbow sprinkles from the Cosmic Brownies grow to be insufferably exhausting, a veritable cracked molar ready to occur.

The very fact of the matter is, as a lot as I need to love these items — particularly at a $2.74 Walmart price-point — the one one I’ve ever felt compelled to purchase greater than as soon as is Star Crunch. For no matter cause, I discover that one to be heavenly, so good, in reality, that I’ve to drive myself to chorus from consuming a whole pint in a single sitting.

Will any of the three new flavors buck the pattern of normal disappointment?

Turtle Brownies

Hudsonville Ice Cream’s web site describes it as follows: “Brownie batter flavored ice cream with brownie dough and crushed peanuts all through, completed with a caramel swirl.” Look, I’m not gonna lie: I’m not completely certain how this ice cream was “brownie batter flavored” versus simply, you understand, chocolate. There was a really small quantity of tasty brownie dough (it tastes like they use precise Little Debbie brownie, in reality) interspersed all through, and… perhaps a number of peanuts? I couldn’t discover many in any respect. Ditto for the “caramel swirl.” This might have used extra of each. And since it wanted a bit of extra all the pieces, this one got here up a bit quick.

Apple Fruit Pies

Right here’s the factor — I don’t even know if I’ve ever had a Little Debbie apple fruit pie. (Or any of her fruit pies, for that matter.) I used to be all the time a wax-papered Hostess hand-pie man. So I didn’t actually know what to anticipate right here. Hudsonville says this one is “Cinnamon vanilla ice cream with an apple pie filling swirl and pie crumbs all through.”

My first few bites garnered nothing however ice cream, which, let me say this — the ice cream in these has all the time impressed me, notably at this value. It’s creamy and thick and is fairly rattling good, frankly. This was no completely different. However it took a bit for me to seek out any apple pie filling swirl or the pie crumbs. However once I did, I used to be happy. The apple swirl was requisitely apple pie filling-like, each in style and texture, and the pie crumbs had been thick, with a little bit of a crunch and a delicate graham taste. The one factor holding this from being elevated into the stratosphere of “I’m clearing area within the freezer for six extra of those” was the sad lack of mix-in. Even nonetheless, it was a winner.

Chocolate Chip Creme Pie

Just like the Apple Fruit Pie, I’ve by no means had a Chocolate Chip Creme Pie from The Debster. The very fact of the matter is, if I’m gonna eat a round El Deb pie with a “creme” element, it’s going to be of the Oatmeal Creme selection, OR its chocolate sister, the Fudge Spherical. I’ll have to department out after having this revelatory ice cream, nevertheless. Described as “Vanilla creme flavored ice cream full of chocolate chip cookie items,” it was my favourite of the three. The “chocolate chip cookie items” had been plentiful. There have been a LOT of chocolate chips all through, a number of hundred, at the least. Actually, this simply ended up tasting like chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream with a bonus creme element, which was very fulfilling.
