As many of you know, I’m not big on sweets. It’s safe to say that I make an honest effort to review them here. I’m by no means complaining – it’s good for me to step out of my comfort zone and really try new things. That being said, I LOVE Maple Walnut Ice Cream. It ran rampant when I lived up north. Turkey Hill sold it when I lived in Pennsylvania. It was my go-to flavor at Gifford’s Ice Cream Stand on Broadway in Maine (side note: my Mom had to explain to me what Jimmies were – outside of “from away” we call them sprinkles). I’d yet to see the flavor since moving to Florida from the DC area in 2007. That all changed when I walked into Kilwins in Celebration a few weeks ago. I was reading through the ice cream flavors, when there it was. My Holy Grail: Maple Walnut.
I ordered it in a Waffle Bowl, which was in turn, also served in a bowl. Pictured is a single scoop, which will set you back nearly $5. A bit pricey, but oh so worth it. The thing I like best about this variety of ice cream is that it’s not overly sweet, and also has that slightly bitter walnut taste. The maple helps balance that bitterness. It’s my favorite. I need to return and try some of their other flavors, but 5+ years without Maple Walnut requires a lot of time for which to make up.
So I need to ask, what is your favorite ice cream flavor and why? Is it a nostalgic one that is difficult to find, or a more readily available one that you can enjoy any time?
