While at Natural Choice Market yesterday, Casey and I picked up a couple of pints of Walpole Creamery ice cream to share with my parents after lunch at their house. We selected chocolate chip and grapenut. The chocolate chip was devine. The base was creamy and wonderfully vanilla-y. The chips were generously sized and provided a perfect dark chocolate bite to contrast with the vanilla base. The four of us happily polished off the container. The grapenut had a nice nutty flavor, but I had texture issues. The grapenuts made the ice cream too grainy. I suppose this is the nature of grapenuts but I wasn’t a fan. The good news is there are other flavors to try – and I will. Walpole Creamery has some seasonal flavors that sound excellent. I missed the fall pumpkin, but fortunately there’s always next year.
