Hey! So you guys know my philosophy on eating sugar: I do it, intentionally and choosily, 2x a week. I don’t waste my Splurge days on Skittles or cardboard-like Chips Ahoy. I Splurge on things that are fabulous. And one of those fabulous things is high-quality ice cream.
This past week I got the chance to sample 6 flavors from Mora Iced Creamery. Oh. My. GOODNESS.
I’m kind of an ice cream snob. I can taste a dramatic difference between the cheapo party bucket variety and premium, full-fat deliciousness. And Mora is as premium and decadent an ice cream as I’ve ever experienced. Here are the flavors I tasted and my take on each:
Dulce de Leche Buenos Aires
YUM. Some caramel-involving ice creams veer off into the sickly sweet zone, but this take on Dulce de Leche was just plain wonderful. Such a luxurious, smooth flavor!
Cheesecake with Raspberry
Be still my beating heart! Usually my favorite ice cream flavors involve chocolate in a major way, but this rich ice cream tasted like actual cheesecake topped with actual raspberries. It was my favorite of the bunch.
I’ll be honest: after one bite I wasn’t sure about this one. It is super tart and bitter, just like a real grapefruit. But after than initial first spoonful, my tastebuds adjusted and I thought it was incredible. It was the very definition of refreshing! I’d love to dish up a bowl of this flavor on a hot summer afternoon.
I had to Google this flavor to even know what it was. It turns out it was a hazelnut chocolate, much like Nutella. It was yummy! I admit that I didn’t find it as interesting as some of the other flavors, but it was still wonderful.
Jack O Lantern
I love all things pumpkin, so of course I loved this one. Creamy pumpkin ice cream + chunks of fudgy goodness = a match made in heaven.
This was like the ultimate guilty pleasure flavor of the universe. Remember on the Lindsay Lohan Parent Trap where both twins love a glob of peanut butter on top of an Oreo? Umm, yeah. Picture that deliciousness in an ice cream flavor. This was a close, close runner-up to the Cheesecake flavor.
At present, Mora has a few locations in Washington but is looking to open in Utah soon. So if you live anywhere near one, get yourself in there and eat some incredible ice cream! 🙂
And lastly, a HUGE thank you to Mora for sending the samples! Truly. This ice cream is killer and I can’t wait until there’s a location near me.
