I visited my mom for a week in Ohio, and one of our first stops was a Graeter's Ice Cream shop. I've only been to Graeter's a few times, and I haven't had any of their ice cream in several years. When I was younger and got ice cream, I would only try vanilla, but this time I was more daring... I tried chocolate! :D

I had a single scoop of chocolate ice cream in a regular cone. The chocolate wasn't too sweet or too bitter. It also wasn't super rich or filling. Some say how amazing Graeter's ice cream is, and while it tasted pretty good, there wasn't anything extraordinary about it... and one downside was that I had to eat it quickly because it was melting so fast. :(

This mango sorbet from Trader Joe's had a nice consistency / texture. Since it didn't have any orange or orange juice for flavoring, I could definitely taste the mango in it, which was also a plus since I like the flavor of mango. While it wasn't as sweet as maybe some other mango sorbets, it was still very sweet and mostly left me very thirsty after just a few spoonfuls.

Blue Bell Utlimate Neopolitan Ice Cream
Blue Bell Utlimate Neopolitan Ice Cream

My boyfriend likes strawberry ice cream, and we both like vanilla and chocolate ice cream so we decided to try some of Blue Bell's Ultimate Neopolitan ice cream, which includes all three flavors. It didn't hurt that it was also on sale at Fry's (Kroger) for $3.77 for half a gallon.

All three of the ice cream flavors were super sweet. The vanilla and chocolate flavors are masked a little bit in the sweetness (but they still taste like vanilla and chocolate). The strawberry flavor was also super sweet, but it tasted the most like its respective flavor. However, I usually don't like fruit in my ice cream, and I didn't like the strawberry slices in this case so it was good for me that the three different flavors were partitioned into three different sections.

Although the three flavors were all sweet and eating this ice cream makes me thirsty, the ice cream still tasted good overall.
