Ice Cream Review Acme Valley Banana Split


Disclaimer: Acme Valley despatched me a complimentary field of 10 ice cream pints to evaluate. Thanks, Acme Valley! Whereas the free pints present me with the chance for this evaluate, Acme Valley has no management over the opinions expressed.

Banana Break up is a brand new taste from Acme Valley—so new that, as I write this evaluate, there isn’t even a web page for the flavour on the Acme Valley web site.

My latest follow has been to begin a evaluate with the model’s pint description. It helps set expectations. However this pint had no description on the container—and as I discussed, there’s no webpage but. So, with out additional ado:

Banana Ice Cream: The advice on the container is to let the ice cream mood 10 to fifteen minutes, so I did that. It was nonetheless largely frozen after 10 minutes, but it surely was a bit softer. I feel an extended mood is well-advised, particularly with fruit-based flavors.

This ice cream undoubtedly has a little bit of a distinct texture from different manufacturers—a stretchy texture—“taffy-like” simply as Acme Valley claims. However you’ll be able to nonetheless style the creaminess of it too. It’s completely different, however the texture grows on you over time.

This base has a nice, pure banana taste, not overly candy; which is to say, it’s considerably refined, not super-concentrated or artificially enhanced.

Some fruit-based ice lotions might be icy if the water within the fruit shouldn’t be handled correctly. Nevertheless it isn’t an issue on this pint. The bottom is clean and creamy.

Chocolate Syrup: Take a look at that image of the highest of the pint. A lot chocolate syrup! It makes my sugar-loving coronary heart skip a beast. However the cross-section reveals the chocolate is basically contained to the highest and sides of the pint.

It’s just like Hershey’s chocolate syrup in texture and taste—a milk chocolate taste. There’s a lot of it that some ran off the aspect of my scoops and pooled within the bowl, permitting me to dip the ice cream into the chocolate syrup for an additional burst of chocolate.

Walnuts: These are medium-sized walnut items combined into the pint. They add some texture and bitter, nutty taste, a welcome variation.

However, in truth there aren’t many walnuts on this pint—not sufficient for a premium model—maybe 4 or so in my half pint. Wanting on the cross part footage tells the story—you’ll be able to see only some walnut chunks peaking out. Considerably disappointing.

Total: Banana Break up is a brand new taste from Acme Valley. The chocolate and banana work effectively collectively—one other basic taste mixture from Acme Valley.

It does boast a good quantity of chocolate and a strong, ice-free banana taste. However there might have been some extra walnuts, and albeit, another flavors if it’s going to say to be what’s conventionally understood as a “banana break up.”

Trying to Wikipedia to settle what a “banana break up” definitively consists of as a substitute creates some ambiguity:

“A banana break up is an American ice cream-based dessert consisting of a peeled banana minimize in half lengthwise, and served with ice-cream and sauce between the 2 items. There are various variations, however the basic banana break up is made with three scoops of ice cream (one every of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry). A sauce or sauces (chocolate, strawberry, and pineapple are conventional) are drizzled onto the ice cream, which is topped with whipped cream and maraschino cherries. Crushed nuts (usually peanuts or walnuts) are optionally available.”

Primarily based on that definition, it’s honest to count on sure flavors from this pint: banana and chocolate, but in addition, not less than vanilla and strawberry, and, for additional factors, possibly even pineapple, cherry, nuts, and whipped cream.

That’s a fairly difficult pint to fabricate on a big scale. So it’s most likely not possible to really replicate the banana break up expertise in a humble pint. Or worse, it would lead to one thing just like a humble Neapolitan ice cream.

For me, Acme Valley’s Banana Break up is nearer to B&J’s Chunky Monkey in flavors—with banana, chocolate, and walnuts. So if that’s what you’re anticipating entering into, you gained’t be disillusioned.
