Kleinpeter ice cream(Posted by Freddy Shoop on 12/6/09 at 7:02 pm)
Tried it today for the first time. Bought a pint of "Bananas Foster." When I opened it, there was a layer of ice on top. But then, as I started eating it, I realized that the icy consistency was throughout the ice cream, as well. It also had a strange grittiness to it; it wasn't creamy at all. Overall it tasted OK; it's pretty hard to screw up something with cream, milk, sugar, and pralines in it. Still, I felt like it could have been much, much better.
Maybe some stores are mishandling. I've bought most flavors and never found it gritty nor did any of them have an ice layer. Possibly it's mishandling on the Kleinpeter side and I've just been lucky to avoid. The egg nog flavor is really good.
Yea they are texturally inconsistent right now, but if you buy a good tub of one of their good flavors, it is good stuff. A good container of Cafe au lait is the best coffee ice cream sold in stores, IMO.
i havent had a gritty one yet, but imo its not creamy enough. Considering the price and the quality of the milk, I expected it to be better. I did enjoy the cookies and cream. tried the gold brick that someone suggest on here and I was expecting more chunks of goldbrick rather than flakes.
With all the people saying this it leads me to believe that they're having some problems with packaging their product. I've had it before where it was great and other times I've tried it, it tastes freezer burnt (and I'm talking the same flavor on 2 different occasions so I'm comparing apples to apples)
That being said I do enjoy their Cafe Au Lait ice cream. It's pretty rich. I can get 4-5 servings out of a pint and be more than satisfied.
