Jfood's Ice Cream Tour Continues (MSP) - Return to Pumphouse

jfood | Jun 10, 2009 07:09 PM

Jfood made a commitment to return to Pumphouse and he did.

As someone suggested a couple of weeks ago they serve a five scooper (minis the size of an Izzy scoop) He ordered the Strawberry, the Vanilla with homemade malted milk balls, the Vanilla with Newman-o’s, the Mint chip and the Organic Banana.

The strawberry was first. The flavors of the berried themselves was outstanding and the ice cream was a basic base with itzy bitzy pieces of the strawberries. The texture was different from his last visit. It appeared that the fat content was much less and the ice crystals were more prevalent.

The two Vanillas were next. Again the ice cream lacked the fat content from the last visit and the vanilla did not have a large amount of flavor. On a more positive note, the homemade malted milk ball was fantastic.

The mint chip was filled with natural mint flavor, not the bottled green stuff. Jfood really liked this one but it could have been better with some more chips or Jfood lost of the draw with the tiny scoop.

Now he stared at the banana. If you remember, Jfood loved this flavor last time. After his first bite he just stared at the dish. Did they change the recipe? This was not the same organic banana that ate and raved about a few weeks ago. Less flavor and more \crystals.

Also none of the scoops left that fatty residue on Jfood's lips like his last visit. Jfood has no idea what happened, but he will need to return next week to give it another try..
