Tillamook Neapolitan Ice Cream Review


I'm never so full that I don't have another scoop of ice cream. And then maybe another scoop. And then another. And another one? Well, you get the picture. I love ice cream And of all the brands and flavors to choose from at the grocery store right now, the carton I'm reaching for the most these days is Tillamook's Neapolitan Ice Cream.

The combination of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla is already one of my favorites, but Tillamook's version of Neapolitan might be the best iteration out there.

Why I Love Talmuk's Neopolitan Ice Cream

Each flavor in Neapolitan ice cream should taste good on its own, but when paired together. And Talmuk gets it in spades. Chocolate ice cream has waves of chocolate throughout the base, strawberry ice cream has Oregon strawberry flakes, and old-fashioned vanilla ice cream is the perfect neutralizer. The slight texture variation helps differentiate the three flavors without making one flavor feel more prominent or special than the others.

Speaking of texture, there's a lot to unpack here. Tillamook uses more cream in its ice cream than is legally considered ice cream (according to the FDA, ice cream with at least 10% milk fat must be considered “ice cream” and not “frozen dairy dessert.” “). The result is a smooth, rich, and (duh) creamy ice cream.

Tillamook's Neopolitan ice cream also somehow manages that incredible fluffy texture. I don't know how to describe it other than it feels like you're eating creamy air. It's like cotton candy thick, smooth and not too sweet.

According to Steve Marko, senior director of research and development This is achieved through their quality ingredients. “At Tillamook, we combine extra cream with real eggs, sugar, and natural tara and guar gums. This delivers a rich ice cream that's still fluffy because it's heavier than high-fructose corn syrup, modified starch or not through starch. mono- and diglycerides,” Marco explains.

At $6.49 for 48 ounces, Tillamook is a little more expensive than Breyers or Edy's, but less than other premium brands you'll find at a grocery store like Van Leeuwen. It's available nationwide, including at Target, Kroger, Albertsons, and Safeway.
