What could be better than eating instant cocoa powder straight out the package? Just rip open the pouch and pour into mouth. Forget about a hot cup, just gimme the cocoa-ness in the quickest form possible. Yes, I used to do this, but now there’s another way.
Hot Cocoa Ice Cream is all it’s cracked up to be with its beautifully smooth & creamy texture, and lightly sweet taste. It really does resemble the flavor experience of Hot Cocoa. But what’s up with the boulder-sized marshmallows? The package promises “marshmallow swirls”, but what you really get are large, wet, squishy pillows. I don’t like that.
The flavor sensation of the ice cream is completely overrun by a meter show of wet marshmallows. Sort of like a house full of rats in need of pest control service – they gotta go. So I left the bowl alone; to melt and wither into nothing-ness; leaving the wet pillows
exposed and afraid of the trash (where they now dwell).
I highly recommend serving Edy’s Hot Cocoa Ice Cream to guests that overstay their welcome. They’ll be leaving real soon, so don’t you worry.
