Perry’s Gingerbread Cookie ice cream

I love gingerbread cookies.  Gingersnaps.  Gingerbread.  I was pumped to try this premium Gingerbread Cookie ice cream from Perry’s.

011615-5It’s not good.  Like, really not good.  I got through one serving, tried a second, then threw the rest out.  Very painful given how excited I was and having to track it down at the Niskayuna Coop.

The infrequent chunks of gingerbread cookies were decent (you can see one I’ve circled in red below).  Slightly chewy, nice little pop of ginger.  I like these.  The white icing swirl was FANTASTIC.  Easily the best part.  I think it was the fact that there was a lot of swirl in my first serving that helped it go down, because it made everything better.
