Thin Mints are probably the most popular Girl Scout cookie, but I bet Samoas (or Caramel Delites) are a close second. I don't know how the combination of cookie, caramel, chocolate, and coconut in Samoas can be so tasty, but it just is. Edy's (or Dreyer's) has mixed the yumminess of Samoas with ice cream to make Edy's Slow Churned Samoas Cookie Light Ice Cream.
The caramel and vanilla ice cream base sounds like it would complement the Samoas, but while it is smooth and creamy, I thought the caramel was too mild. There was a decent amount of crumbled Samoas in the ice cream, but they were too ground up to really enjoy the essence of the Samoa. I thought I would LOVE this ice cream, but the caramel and vanilla base is just so-so and the Samoas cookies could have been just about anything. As far as Girl Scout Cookie inspired flavors go, I would have to say Edy's Slow Churned Thin Mint Cookie Ice Cream is way better.
Each 1/2 cup serving of Edy's Slow Churned Samoas Cookie Light Ice Cream provides 120 calories and 4.5 grams of fat, including 2.5 grams of saturated fat (7% and 13% of the daily value), 3 grams of protein and 18 grams of carbohydrate (more details on the nutrition facts and ingredients at Edys.com).
A 1.5 quart container normally costs $4.99 at Kroger, but I got it on sale for $3.50. There is definitely some room for improvement in the taste department, but I still like the novelty of this ice cream.
