Magnolia Ice Cream is back, and our taste buds are leaping for joy.
Last night, Cathy and I bought a pint each of our favorite Magnolia flavors: she the classic Vanilla, and I the Gold Label Dulce De Leche (Milk Candy), which is basically Vanilla with caramel ribbons.
Both were heavenly! We were just ooh-ing and aah-ing in our car.
The quality of the ice cream had significantly improved. It turns out that Magnolia "uses 100-percent milk-derived fat, which gives its ice cream the smooth texture and richer flavor. " Well, that explains it. Moment on the lips, forever on the hips, but man, I will gladly do my sit-ups, because this indulgence is worth it.
Aside from Dulce De Leche and Vanilla, other flavors we saw at Mightee Mart last night include Chocolate under the Magnolia brand, and Double Dutch and Rocky Road under the premiere Gold Label brand. Mmm.
