I’ve also mentioned before that…well, that hasn’t always been the case. But since Arctic Zero did some rebranding and came out with some incredible new flavors, they’ve proved me wrong!
(I should also note than when I hear people say they don’t like Arctic Zero, I always come to find that it’s because they’re eating it all wrong. Straight out of the freezer it is hard-as-a-rock and icy, but if you let it thaw completely it gets a much creamier, decadent texture!)
Anyway, Arctic Zero recently sent me some of their BRAND new flavors to try, and I wanted to share how I liked them with you.
It’s funny – I actually thought I was going to like this flavor least because I’m not typically a fan of fruity desserts. But to my surprise, I actually loved this! It was much creamier than I expected. I put together this fun “waffles and ice cream” treat using Julian’s waffles. A highly recommended combo 😉
This flavor was pretty good. I expected to like it more than I did, but I’d probably still get it again. It’s super creamy and has chunks of sugar cookie in it, but the chunks were a bit more dry/crumbly than “cookie dough-esque.”
This flavor was the one I was unfortunately the most disappointed in because I tend to be kinda sorta obsessed with all things cake batter. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it. The texture seemed icier than others (even when completely thawed) and the cake batter flavor wasn’t that pronounced. A sh*t ton of sprinkles did help, though. HA.
This flavor was my least favorite. The banana flavor tasted too fake and the cookie crumble was dry and bleh. If you’re craving banana pudding, I’d say just go straight for the famous Magnolia’s version 😉
This was another one I was a tad unsure about because I’m not usually crazy about chocolate ice cream (I’m a weirdo, I know), but it turned out to be my absolute favorite! It was creamy, rich, and the chunks of brownie were chewy (like brownie batter) and delicious. Definitely the best Arctic Zero has done so far.
The verdict: there were some hits and misses, but I’m still a huge fan. If you’re a first-timer I’d definitely recommend getting: Brownie Blast, Cookie Dough, Salted Caramel, Toasted Coconut, or Pomegranate.
Please note that I was not compensated for this post (just given free samples). I just love me some Arctic Zero!
