Happy New Year friends! I hope everyone’s 2020 is off to a great start!
I occasionally hit up a local Asian market for yummy snacks. Luckily it’s sort of out of the way, otherwise I would be completely broke from constantly buying snacks from there. Picked up the usual, noodles, some sauces, Lotte Koala cookies, Pejoy, etc. They almost always have sort of import Kit Kat bars but at 7 dollars a bag, I usually go hmm that sounds good/bad/otherwise and put the bag back down. When I saw this colorful bag jump out at me on the shelf, I knew I couldn’t pass them up.
Let’s start with what is Party Ice Cream? I havn’t a clue, but judging by the picture, its soft serve ice cream, cookie straws, and a sprig of mint. Sounds like a pretty tame party if you ask me. For some reason, my brain interpreted the speckles on the Kit Kat pictured on the package as sprinkles but alas, it is just what appears to be microscopic cookie pieces/crumbs.
I was concerned that these were going to be flavored white chocolate which I a not a fan of. To me, white chocolate is overly sweet and not the best flavor. When I opened the bag, I won’t lie, it smelled a bit like sour milk. I was afraid I was in for a real doozy of a treat but I pressed on. The Kit Kat coating is very soft, not a white chocolate at all. It has a very distinct dairy/vanilla ice cream flavor. It is sweet but not overly sweet or artificial tasting, the wafer inside mixed with the outside coating makes it taste like a perfect vanilla soft serve cone in one of those thin wafery ice cream cones. I immediately hid these in my desk drawer because them being in any easily accessible space means that they would be instantly devoured.
I am going to pop a few in the freezer because I imagine that they would be absolutely delightful frozen. If you are feeling adventurous, I would suggest you pick up a bag if you find them at your local import market or Amazon/Ebay.
