Happy Camper ice cream at Stewart’s is described thusly:
Graham cracker flavored ice cream with chocolate covered peanut butter cups, graham cracker pie crust pieces, and a marshmallow swirl
In case you were wondering if Stewart’s limited edition Happy Camper ice cream is any good…it is.
- Did you read that description?
- Stewart’s makes good ice cream.
- Seriously, if you read it why are you asking?
Oh, by the way…hand-packed pints are on sale this week and it’s going to be around 90 degrees. Make room in the freezer.
If you want a bit more detail…
The ice cream has a light, but definite and distinguishable, graham cracker flavor. I didn’t really notice the marshmallow swirl, to be honest, but the base itself is gooey and has some pull to it, so I think the swirl actually mixed right into the base and joined with it to form one fantastic concoction – a graham crackery marshmallowy base of yum. Our pint was a touch melty when we got it to the freezer, so that may have impacted it. It’s awesome, though.
In the scoop+ I’ve had so far I noted few graham cracker pie crust pieces (genius, by the way, way better than just using graham cracker pieces, and I’m stealing it next time I want that flavor in a homemade batch), but they’re a nice bit of crunch when you hit one. The PB cups are totally standard, the tiny confections that you find in a lot of ice creams or baking. Nothing unusual, but a nice addition.
Clearly this is a s’mores flavor, so why the PB cups? Why not chocolate chunks or chips? I think that would have been fine, personally. But then again, for a seasonal, limited batch, over-the-top choice? Why not.
All in all, it’s about all you can do not to destroy a pint in one go if you ask me.
(apparently a returning favorite – new to me this year)
